MOLD DAMAGE CAN BE A PROBLEM IN ANY HOME. IF YOU DISCOVER MOLD DAMAGE, HERE ARE SOME IMPORTANT ITEMS TO BE AWARE OF:
MOLD DAMAGE IS A SYMPTOM OF A BIGGER PROBLEM: MOISTURE
If mold is present, it is the result of an unchecked source of moisture.
TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE
If mold damage is a problem in your home, it should be cleaned up promptly and the water source needs to be resolved and fixed.
DRYING THE AREA COMPLETELY WITHIN A DAY OR TWO IS IMPORTANT
It is important to dry water-damaged areas and items completely within 24-48 hours to prevent mold damage and growth.
MOLD CAN GROW ON VIRTUALLY ANY SUBSTANCE
As long as water, oxygen, and an organic source are present, mold can grow.

How Does Mold Cause Home Damage?
It doesn’t take much to create an environment in which mold growth can become a problem in your home. A small plumbing leak somewhere, a crack in your roof, or even high humidity in the home can quickly give rise to mold growth. Mold needs three basic things to thrive in an environment: moisture, and organic food source such as wood, or the paper backing on drywall, and lack of good airflow. In the space of 2-3 days from a water leak in a home, mold can spread enough to affect the air quality of the space. It is often unseen for a period of time, because it grows fastest where air exchange doesn’t happen as often, such as inside walls, under flooring, or in a crawlspace or attic. If mold growth goes unchecked for a long period of time, it destroys the organic substance it is growing on. Typically, this will be the structural wood framing of the property, or other wood products such as cabinetry or baseboards. Mold that is left unchecked in an area that is exposed to repeated moisture will break down the wood it is growing in, and those areas will have to be replaced.

How Does Mold Effect My Health?
Understanding how mold affects indoor air quality and the health of occupants in a home is very important to understanding how to keep yourself safe from its harmful effects. Mold is found in every environment. Outdoors and indoors. When the amount of mold found in the air is in low quantities, there are typically no adverse effects to peoples’ health. However, when the air we are breathing has too many spores, we begin to see health problems arise. Higher than normal amounts of mold in the air can result in allergy responses including lung and sinus conditions or affect an occupants’ health in any number of other ways. The severity of the growth, the occupants’ immune system, previous extended exposure to mold, and many other factors can all contribute to the health affects or symptoms that are demonstrated.
How Restoration Pro Remediates Mold Damage
Excessive mold growth is always fed by moisture. The first step to eliminating an ongoing mold problem in a home or business is to eliminate the water source, whether it’s a leak in a roof, or an icemaker line behind the refrigerator, or a slow seep under the kitchen sink. Often mold growth is found during the process of remediating water damage, or during a remodel or other home improvement project. Restoration Pro has certified technicians that specialize in properly mitigating mold damage and eliminating it from your property. We follow industry standard procedures to ensure the mold growth is contained and eliminated in the area in which we find it. We are careful to avoid any cross contamination to other areas of the structure. Restoration Pro utilizes independent third-party testing after our work is completed, to ensure your home or business is returned to you free of the mold growth that was contaminating the air quality.
Any damage which has already occurred because of mold growth will be repaired by our team, and your home will be restored to its pre-mold damage condition.
