Mold is Everywhere

Many people are surprised to learn that mold and mold spores are everywhere. Molds live in the soil, on plants, and on dead or decaying matter. Outdoors, mold plays a key role in the breakdown of leaves, wood, and other plant debris. Molds produce tiny spores to reproduce, just as some plants produce seeds. These mold spores can be found in the air both indoors and outdoors, and settled on indoor and outdoor surfaces. When mold spores land on a damp spot, they may begin growing. Thus, mold should be viewed as more of a moisture issue, than specifically a mold issue. It is important not to provide the moist environment mold needs to grow, especially in your home or workplace. That is where larger problems arise. Thus, the strategy to the problem is to find and eliminate the moisture source first, before removing the mold. Removing the mold alone does not solve the problem. If the water remains, new mold will grow in the same area. 

What You Need To Know About Mold

When water intrudes onto your property, mold growth can start in as little as 48 hours. Consider the following facts: Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors & out. Mold spores are microscopic, float along in the air, and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems. They may even hitch a ride on your clothing or a pet. Mold spores thrive on moisture. They can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce harmful toxins. Before mold remediation begins, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise the mold may return. Mold often produces a strong, musty odor, which can lead you to possible mold problem areas. Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth.

A Bit About Mold

When disaster strikes, its human nature to want to take immediate action and remedy the problem. When it comes to mold mitigation that is not always possible. There are things that can be put in place to limit the spread of mold spores and to limit exposure to it. But before mitigation can begin, the source of the moisture that the mold is feeding on must be addressed.

If a water damage is ongoing and not stopped, mold may come back even if remediation is completed. SERVPRO of The East End is able to come and inspect your home or workplace to see if mold is a real concern and to help identify the source of water damage that is ultimately causing the growth of the mold. We have been serving our community for over 40 years and helping to make it “Like it never even happened” for all of our customers.
