Mold spores are a natural presence in the air, but too much in one place can be dangerous for everyone in the home. They always accumulate within areas containing high moisture content, building colonies on surrounding surfaces. This includes your home or building as it may contain excess moisture in the event of water damage or poor air circulation. While mold can grow in almost any area with high amounts of moisture, porous materials like wood, drywall, and carpeting face the highest risk of damage.
Never hesitate to call a mold removal professional when you find mold on your property, especially when it comes to the safety of your loved ones. ServiceMaster Fire and Water Restoration is available in Centennial and Highlands Ranch, CO to provide mold removal for homes and businesses. Our licensed and trained technicians ensure to prevent the mold from spreading while taking steps to remove it from all affected spaces using advanced methods.
Areas with Accumulated Moisture
Mold can cause significant damage to building materials and content because it consumes the cellulose contained within modern building materials. This includes drywall, insulation, wood flooring, ceiling tile, and more. When allowed to grow, the mold colony disperses its spores which leads to mold growth in new areas.
It’s these spores that trigger a number of health issues for everyone living on the property, especially those with compromised immune systems. Reactions like itchy eyes and throat, skin irritation, nasal congestion, headaches, and sneezing are all common when responding to mold. But long-term exposure can include respiratory infections and asthma.
