Why You Should Always Trust Mold Cleanup to a Professional  

professional-mold-cleanup

Household mold and mildew can not only be difficult to detect, but it can also be almost impossible to eliminate completely without the help of a professional mold remediation expert.

Types of Mold

There are many different types of mold, all of which can potentially put your health at risk. Mold can form at any time and in any place there is a water leak or excess moisture. Mold typically thrives in dark, humid environments and is a frequent and year-round problem in North Carolina's climate.

Unfortunately, mold spores in basements, under a sink cabinets, behind shower tiles, or even in the walls can cause serious illness. Anytime you have a leaking faucet, a roof leak or a flooded room, there is a risk of mold infestation.

Medical Risks

No matter how small the affected area, mold is a serious issue, and the longer it goes untreated, the more difficult it becomes to treat. Toxic mold triggers allergic reactions and contributes to severe breathing problems in susceptible individuals, but it can also cause other symptoms, including:

  • Red eyes
  • Congestion or common cold symptoms
  • Headaches
  • Listlessness or fatigue
  • Sleep problems
  • Sore throat
  • General Aches and Pains
  • Inflammation

Determine your Mold Problem

A mold remediation expert can determine the extent of the problem and offer advice about the most effective treatment. Under the right conditions, mold spores will grow and multiply within 24 hours. That’s why when it comes to treating mold, fast action is necessary.

If you have a burst pipe in your home, a minor flood, a nagging roof leak, or even just a leaky faucet, you should suspect mold growth. Some telltale signs include musty odors or green, white or black stains around pipes and plumbing fixtures.

Take Action to Eliminate Mold

Mold not only causes illness, but can also undermine a home's structural integrity. Timely, cost-effective treatment by a professional mold remediation company is always the best course of action.
