Who Cares About Mold? We Do!

5/4/2018 (Permalink)

What causes mold?

Mold is a fungus that’s an integral part of the earth’s bio-mass. It consumes and breaks down organic material, like leaves, wood, and plants. The problem is when mold colonizes in our buildings, consumes our building materials, and puts spores into our indoor air.  This happens when there’s a moisture problem since mold can’t grow without water.  When there’s enough moisture or humidity for colonization, that’s when humans begin to have problems.

Why is it important to get mold removed?

For the majority of people, exposure to very low concentrations of mold won’t be an issue. However, some spores can create allergy or respiratory-related health problems, and mold growth can also adversely affect property value. Nobody wants to purchase a Seller’s mold issue. Attic mold almost never affects the indoor air quality in the living space, but it sure threatens real estate deals.
