Mold is a common problem that many homes and businesses face. It’s important that any molding area is remediated immediately, as it can spread throughout the structure in a short period of time and cause more issues than just looking bad. Mold can create allergic reactions and have severe health implications if not removed from the infected area, and in some cases require the building be cleared out until the infected area is clear of mold.
It’s important to understand that mold spores are always present, indoors and outdoors, and only need a specific environment to start growing. Moisture is one of the most common factors which leads to mold growing and spreading. Because of this, water damage can lead to molding, no matter how small the extent of the water damage is.
Common areas that have mold are: Basements; Bathrooms; Plumbing; Air Conditioning Systems; Drywall; Subflooring; Carpeting.
These are a few of the areas that are affected by mold most commonly, since many times excess moisture is present in those areas.
