Mold in Homes - What You Should Know

April 23, 2019

 

 

Mold is something that naturally occurs everywhere that we live. Usually we see it only where we expect it. But if the conditions are right, we see it turn up where we don’t want to see it.

 

Mold (like all living organisms) needs three basic things to survive; the right temperature, food and water. If you remove any one of those three, mold can’t effectively grow. Our homes are the ideal temperature and many of our building materials like wood and the paper on drywall are a great food source. All you need to do is add the right amount of water and mold spores that are all around us can grow and reproduce.

 

 

When you have unusual mold growth in your home, it is a symptom of some other underlying problem. It can be anything from improper ventilation to a leak somewhere. A Mold Remediation Specialist can help you to determine what the actual issue is, set up a plan to repair it and properly remove the mold that is there now.

 

They can also let you know if the problem is significant or complicated enough to require an Industrial Hygienist. If you have any health concerns, you will want to consult your doctor.

 

You can find out details and resources for mold in homes by visiting the EPA website.
