While mold plays a vital role outdoors, breaking down dead material in nature, it is unwelcome in our homes. At Flood Damage Pro, we understand the detrimental impact mold can have on the quality of your indoor environment and on your health. Our team of seasoned experts specializes in mold remediation, employing advanced techniques and equipment to thoroughly remove mold, treat the affected area, and prevent its recurrence. We are dedicated to restoring the safety and comfort of your home, ensuring a mold-free living space.
Why Mold Grows Indoors (and Why It Matters)
Mold needs four things to grow - air, temperature, food, and water. When it has these things, it grows, reproduces, and releases tiny invisible mold spores into the air. Since our homes aren't totally sealed off from contact with outside air, mold spores float around indoors as well.
When these mold spores encounter a moist, biodegradable surface indoors, like a wet wall after a pipe burst, it can start to grow in that area in as little as 24 hours. Mold spreads rapidly as long as it has the right conditions. As it spreads, mold releases even more spores indoors, and the concentration of mold in the air can increase exponentially. This can cause significant health problems for you and your family, especially if your loved ones suffer from mold allergies, asthma, or other respiratory difficulties.
You need to take care of mold as soon as possible to stop it from spreading. Unfortunately, mold spreads really quickly and the longer you put it off, the size of the area needing treatment will grow bigger.
How do I take care of mold?
It can be tempting to go out and buy a cleaning bottle for mold from the grocery store.
If your goal is to hide the mold you can see, go right ahead.
Many of these products contain bleach, and will remove most surface mold stains. But they won't address any mold beneath the surface, or take care of the water problem that allowed the mold to grow in the first place. Unfortunately, this can mean that mold will return again, and again, as long as the water problem remains.
To recover your property from mold, call Flood Damage Pro.
Our mold remediation process not only takes care of the mold that is growing, but makes sure that the problem won't happen again. As an IICRC certified firm, we are committed to upholding the highest standards in the industry. Our dedicated team of experts begins by isolating the existing mold to prevent its spread to other areas of your property. We then treat the mold with appropriate methods, ensuring that it's eliminated without causing further damage. By controlling humidity and moisture, we create an environment unsuitable for mold growth, thus protecting your property from future outbreaks. Trust us to provide a comprehensive solution to your mold problem, where your property's health is our top priority.
What about toxic black mold?
You may have heard about toxic mold, or black mold, and are wondering if the mold in your home is dangerous. According to the CDC, the type of mold doesn't matter, because all mold needs to be addressed promptly and professionally. There are hundreds of different mold varieties. Where there is mold, there is moisture, and the source of the moisture needs to be identified and eliminated.
No one should live or work in an environment overgrown with mold. Call 866-869-4167 today.
