Mold Remediation Services for a Clean and Healthy Home
You’ve found mold in your home and you aren’t quite sure what to do about it. You know that mold can spread on surfaces and spores can even travel through the air to colonize new surfaces. You know that it can be toxic, compromising your health and ruining the pride that you have in your home.
Your first reaction might be to purchase some household cleaning products and tackle the problem yourself. Unfortunately, this is rarely the best path to take.
If mold has already appeared on walls, ceilings, or flooring, it’s likely that the problem runs deeper than what you can see. Hiring a mold remediation specialist is the only way to ensure that your home is free from contamination and protected from further damage.
The Dangers of Mold in Your Home – Why Professional Mold Cleanup is Essential
The presence of mold can compromise building materials. Over time, degradation can reach a point where replacement is necessary. Vulnerable materials like carpet, paint, and drywall will take on damage relatively quickly. Structural materials like concrete and wooden framing are less likely to be permanently impacted by mold, but problems can still occur. Wood that has been exposed to moisture and mold over an extended period can break, leading to partial collapse.
As soon as you see signs of mold, it’s time to call Thomas Restoration Group. The danger is not just to the structure of your home, but also to your health.
Mold, particularly toxic black mold, can cause respiratory distress, even when the mold colonies are relatively small. Symptoms of mold contamination include:
Coughing and sneezing.
Frequent sinus infections.
Increased asthma attacks for those who already suffer the condition.
In serious cases where mold exposure is extensive and long term, more worrying conditions can develop. The presence of mold and moisture in the home can lead to pneumonia, digestive problems, fatigue, inflammation, depression, and even bleeding in the lungs.
Telltale Signs That You need a Mold Restoration Specialist
Take notice whenever you see mold in your home. Identify where it is and try to find the source of moisture that is causing it. If you have mold on a ceiling, then you could inspect your attic to find if there is water entry and mold inside the roof. If you find mold on carpets where there’s no visible sign of moisture, then you could have a leak inside the wall or under the floor.
You won’t always be able to find the source of the mold or identify every single colony. Accessing attics and crawlspaces can be difficult and potentially dangerous. If you don’t have DIY experience or the confidence to investigate the problem, then call Thomas Restoration Group in the first instance.
In some cases, you won’t even need to see the mold to know that it is there. Some signs that indicate mold presence are:
You’ve experienced any of the physical symptoms of mold contamination.
You can smell a musty odor in your home that remains no matter how much you clean and ventilate your interiors.
You recently had a broken pipe, flooding, leaking roof, or similar event. Water entry, even minor, can lead to mold infestation.
Identifying Black Mold in Your Home
Black mold is a toxic species that has more potential to cause serious symptoms in people and pets. This mold needs immediate remediation and you should not attempt to clean it yourself without the proper tools and equipment.
It’s simple to identify, thanks to its color. As the name suggests, it is black in appearance, and typically forms in places where there is regular exposure to moisture and humidity. If black mold is advanced, it may be furry and contain other colors like white, orange, brown, and green.
