WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT MOLD

Any company that claims to be able to completely remove mold is advertising falsely. Microscopic mold spores are naturally occurring and exist almost everywhere — indoors and outdoors. In fact, mold can enter your home through windows, doors, HVAC systems, your pets, and even your clothing! It becomes a problem when there is moisture and the spores grow into a colony. Mold colonies can produce allergens and irritants that can cause a number of health issues. There is no way to truly eliminate mold, which is why the goal should always be focused on mold control or remediation.

MOLD FACTS

While mold spores are present in almost every indoor and outdoor location, it’s important to understand that they are microscopic, which means that, on their own, they are relatively harmless. The danger comes when the spores begin to grow into a colony. Since mold spores thrive on moisture, it’s essential to make sure that there are no areas of standing water outside your home or leaky pipes inside your home. One of the most obvious signs that there is mold growing in your home is a strong musty odor. If you detect this scent, try to follow it to see if you are able to locate the source of the mold.

PROPER MOLD REMEDIATION

The goal of mold remediation is to clean up any mold growing in your home while avoiding exposure to large amounts of mold. When you work with the professionals at Environmental Environmental Services in Akron, you can rely on us to accurately calculate the area of contamination, as mold can grow in more than one area. Once we have calculated the extent of the contamination, we can begin work on mold remediation. Depending on the location of the mold colony in your home, you may want to find temporary housing elsewhere to avoid any health problems for yourself or your family members.
