Huntersville, NC – Businesses: Searching for a Commercial Mold Removal Company?

BY: John Alexander, STOP Restoration - Charlotte North

Found mold in your house, and want to get it removed?

Huntersville

Here is what you need to know about mold and how you can remove it.

Mold growth is something that plagues a lot of homes in America and is a cause of severe stress for homeowners. Statistics tell us that 70% of all homes have one or another kind of mold problem. Shocking, right? Mold causes numerous types of health problems and is also bad for the overall structure of the house. It grows in places that are wet and humid. A place where mold would normally grow could be a flooded basement after an especially rainy day     .

What Is Mold?

Mold is a type of fungus that grows in humid conditions. It’s generally found in places where there is a lot of moisture. In terms of indoor environments, it’s typically located near places that can have leaks like windows, roofs, and pipes. Mold also produces spores that spread through the air. These spores also stick around in places where mold itself doesn’t grow. The most common types of indoor molds are Penicillium, Aspergillus, and Cladosporium. Mold also grows in places like cardboard boxes, furniture, and places with a lot of dust.

You can tell you have a serious mold problem when you see some sort of large growth, and it stinks to high heaven.

Effects of Mold

Mold has many adverse effects on human health and also damages the parts of the structure where it has grown. The spores that come from mold can cause a myriad of health issues with the toxins and compounds that they spread in the atmosphere.

It generally causes people who are sensitive to it to get irritated skin and eyes, a blocked nose, and a general feeling of unease, but it may also result in severe health conditions like hyper inflammation in multiple parts of the body. It also aggravates preexisting conditions like asthma. Prolonged growth of mold also forms harmful bacteria that are toxic and pollute the environment.

How to Remove It

The first step to removing mold is identifying and isolating the affected area. Once that’s done, identify the source of humidity, like a leaking pipe or roof, and immediately fix that. Start ventilating the affected area to ensure that the spores released by the mold are removed. Start wiping everything down with a cleaning solution. Distilled white vinegar is a good cleaning product. For a stronger solution, you can mix it with Hydrogen Peroxide and baking soda. Dry the cleaned area afterwards to prevent the mold from coming back. If the mold growth is particularly pervasive, consider calling in a professional mold removal company like STOP Restoration Charlotte North as they are better equipped to handle it safely and effectively.

Pro tip: Don’t use bleach. It’s not effective against mold that grows on porous surfaces and its toxic fumes are a health hazard.
