Mold RemediationThe Dangers of Mold and Mold Remediation

Mold growth in schools, homes, or workplaces is a common scare that should be attended to quickly. Excessive mold can be damaging to the lungs, can cause asthma attacks, and can result in serious allergic reactions. If you find mold in your home or are worried that there may be mold in your home, contact All Star Plumbing Mold Remediation services and we can send an expert over to keep your home clean and safe.

Mold can be tricky, as it can be found in even the cleanest of homes. Often people may live in a very well-kept home with everything right where they need to be, but we will find mold living on the furniture in their basement or possibly in an unused cupboard. Once mold finds a surface to grow on, it can grow quickly and often can be hard to detect and immediate mold remediation is required.

Mold growth occurs when mold spores from the air make their way to a surface that is at the proper temperature and has the proper amount of moisture for mold to form. Signs of mold is often an indicator of excess moisture in a home, which can usually be the result of ineffective or improper home maintenance of construction. This can be due to a number of things, such as issues with the piping of a home, roof leaks, water damage, or water heater issues. This can also come from issues with the sewer, sinks, or showers.

Methods of cleaning of small amounts of mold are typically not that difficult. Small amounts of mold can be stopped simply by stopping the source of moisture. Some mold remediation remedies may be sunlight, ventilation, or dehumidifiers. Drying out the mold will kill its source of nutrient. However, this may work for the time being, but when taking into consideration that most mold growth is the result of faulty home maintenance, chances are the mold will just reappear again. This is why it is necessary to contact a professional in these circumstances. A professional will be able to determine the source that is feeding the mold and find a solution to fix that source and prevent mold from occurring in the future. For instance, if the mold is due to water damage from a pipe leak, an All Star Plumbing & Restoration employee will be able to get rid of the mold, dry out the water damage, and fix the leak.

Certain types of mold in larger amounts can be dangerous and often undetected. If you feel your house is emitting strange smells or are worried you may have mold somewhere in your home, contact All Star Plumbing & Restoration Mold Remediation services anytime of the day or night and we can send someone out to your home, school, or workplace to address the issue.
