Mold refers to a type of fungus and tends to be transparent, but can also appear to be black, green, white in the form of extremely fine, fluffy threads. It is incredibly resilient and can grow just about anywhere, but thrives in places high in moisture, which include pipes, windows, places with leaks, and so on. It is classified as a biological indoor air pollutant by the World Health Organization (WHO), and has been shown to cause respiratory symptoms including asthma and allergies. In fact, some mold can even be toxic and cause significant damage to ones’ health.
Moreover, mold growth can damage and harm structures and building materials if not detected and treated in time. Cross-contamination by mold is also a serious concern, and can occur when mold spores travel from AC ducts and spread to objects like furniture, curtains, and upholstery. They can also be transferred when contaminated objects are moved around, as well as through shoes and clothing. Therefore, it is incredibly important to take measures to ensure that regular cleaning and professional mold remediation and damage restoration is conducted to keep mold and its harmful effects at bay.
How to get rid of Mold:
The most effective way to combat mold is by removing it from the source using non-toxic and eco-friendly anti-mold products and taking care of root causes to prevent the reoccurrence of mold.
Studies have shown that effective mold treatment can lead to several benefits including improved health, reduction in allergens and toxins, improved lifespan of structure as well as long-term protection of household items.
