The Adverse Effects of Mold Growth
Here at Mammoth Restoration, we aim to provide commercial and residential property owners in Flagstaff and Northern Arizona with relevant information on restoration-related topics to help them make informed decisions regarding their remediation options. One of the issues that require our restoration services in Flagstaff, AZ involves mold growth.
As part of our advocacy efforts as a restoration company, we’ve prepared a brief explainer on just how harmful mold can be, especially when left to fester.
How Mold Grows and Spreads
By the time you notice a strong moldy odor, you likely already have a serious problem. You can chalk this up to the fact that mold doesn’t usually grow in one spot. It spreads invisibly via spores through the air and sticks to clothing and surfaces where the spores then form new growth. Basically, mold thrives anywhere there’s excess moisture. As a result, it often spreads in damp, inaccessible spaces such as vents, ductwork, crawl spaces, and anywhere near leaking pipes.
Mold can also develop when water damage restoration services have not been carried out properly. With Mammoth Restoration, we make sure that the job gets done properly, so rest assured that you won’t be having mold problems after our water damage services.
Property Damage Concerns
There are various food sources for mold in a home. The list includes drywall, wood, old papers, and even bricks. Unchecked and allowed to spread for too long, mold can eat away at these materials, damaging not just upholstery, clothing, and carpeting, but also your home’s structure itself. If you’ve got valuables that have been affected by mold, our emergency restoration services can help restore these items back to their original condition. We also have a custom design division to help rebuild any structure or room in your home if there are any changes you’d like made during the restoration process.
Mold spores can exacerbate health problems such as asthma, and cause coughing, wheezing and congestion. It can also set off allergic reactions and undermine the immune system in both sick and healthy people. In some cases, such as in people who take immune system suppressants or have serious illnesses that cause immune system dysfunction, exposures can cause fungal infections.
Mammoth Restoration offers mold remediation and removal, as well as other services such as fire damage restoration among many others.
