When you find mold developing in a home or office building, the first thing on your mind is how will you get rid of it. More so, you wonder how you will permanently get rid of your mold.
Advancement Mold environment is here to tell you about the causes of mold and provide you information about permanently eliminating mold from your home or office building.
Before we get into the nitty and gritty of mold remediation service, you need to know what causes mold growth.
What causes mold growth?
For mold spores to develop colonies the spores need a source of water, oxygen, nutrients and a temperature 40 F to 100F.
Some common mold nutrients are wood, paper, and paint. Mold must have some degree of moisture to thrive.
Mold finds its way into homes and offices by traveling the air and attaching its self to people and animals that go in and out of the building.
Once the mold spores find a location where water, oxygen, and nutrients are available, mold will make your home or business its home.
The damper the indoor environment, the more mold related health problems you can expect for your building and building occupants.
When mold exposure happens, here are health problems building occupants face:
- Respiratory problems
- Severe allergy symptoms
- Sick building syndrome (frequent illness)
- Chronic pains
- Severe headaches
Are buildings more likely than others to face mold problems?
The answer is debatable. Some believe having a tighter building construction could make a building more prone to mold growth based on poor quality building materials and improper building maintenance/ air circulation.
What is a tighter building construction?
It’s a building that has poor air circulation and makes it easier for moisture to contain itself.
If you do have a tight building construction, it’s important for your property to have:
- Exhaust fans to control moisture
- An adequate HVAC system
This will reduce the building’s likelihood of having bad mold problems.
