3 Things Every Homeowner Should Know About Mold Removal

Mold is an insidious fungal growth that can look harmless, but, if left untreated, may cause serious health consequences for you and your family. First, it’s important to recognize that there are different kinds of mold. The mold that you have probably seen on aged cheese, stale bread or old food is harmless in comparison to the kind of mold that grows in hidden areas of your home.

1. Black mold is arguably the most dangerous kind of mold.

Spores from black mold have been linked to everything from chronic cold symptoms to respiratory infection and worse. Black mold looks like the name implies. It is dark brown or black in color and, depending on when you discover it, can range in size from the diameter to a dime to the height and width of an entire wall.

2. You can’t remove black mold yourself without jeopardizing your health.

A trained and certified mold remediation expert from Service Master of Buncombe County should be consulted to come to your home to safely remove the mold. Our mold professionals will ensure that all traces of mold are removed without further harm to your family.

3. White and green mold pose health risks, too.

White or green mold may be found behind the bathroom fixtures, inside walls, in attics, or on the outside of house shingles. This kind of mold is a nuisance, especially if it occurs near the ventilation system. In this case, the spores of the mold could be distributed throughout the house through the vents. Allergy sufferers would be most likely to be adversely affected. Since mold can be so tedious to remove, you should call in a mold remediation expert who will be able to get the job done thoroughly.

Mold can be merely a hassle or it can be a life-threatening hazard. Whenever you encounter mold in your home, make sure you. Call in the professionals at ServiceMaster of Buncombe County to take care of it as soon as possible.
