What is mold?
Mold is a microscopic organism, a type of fungus that grows when conditions are optimal, such as when moisture and food are present. Mold is often associated with humid, musty, damp conditions that allow it to grow and multiply by releasing spores. Water leaks from floods, leaky roofs and burst pipes are optimal moisture sources for mold to grow. Condensation present in your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems is another trigger for mold growth. Bathrooms, kitchens, laundry rooms, attics, and basements are prime mold growth locations, but mold is not necessarily confined to them alone. The food mold requires for its growth is present in any home and includes drywall, insulation, wall paper, wall paints, carpet, sheetrock, and wood, among others. Mold is an allergen and an irritant and as such can cause different symptoms in susceptible individuals, such as eye irritation, nasal congestion, fatigue, skin rash, cough, or difficulty breathing.
How can I detect mold in my home?
If you notice musty odor or see visible black or white specks along damp or moist walls or surfaces, you may have mold. Some mold may be invisible behind walls, but can still be active and cause house mold damage as well as health problems. Moreover, even dry or dead mold can release toxins and cause health issues. If you had previous water damage issues from prior leaks and floods, you may not be aware that mold may be growing in your house. Any home components or furnishings damaged by previous leaks or plumbing accidents could be growing mold. Please call SWF Restorations, the mold remediation professionals, to come to your home or place of business in any situation where mold is suspected.
