Mold Remediation

3/15/2018 (Permalink)

Mold is commonly seen in basements like this, since a dark and damp environment is a perfect breeding ground.

Mold infestation is always caused by some moisture issue. Whether it be a broken or burst pipe, excessive humidity or an intrusion from groundwater, excessive moisture needs to be present. Most mold calls we receive are either in basements or crawl spaces since these areas are more apt to have a dark, damp environment which mold spores thrive in. The spores are a living entity which need food and air to live. Once these factors are removed the spores will no longer live and spread. Professional remediation is recommended.

Mold is present everywhere and some strains are helpful to the human race. Most are innocuous unless there is an allergy or other factors which could cause some health issues. Nonetheless, is you see visible signs of mold growth it is always best to have them remediated to avoid having the value of your property diminished or cause issues regarding your employees.
