The key to keeping mold under control is moisture control. Mold grows in damp or wet areas so it normally isn’t a problem in your home. When your crawl space has water damage, a leak or any openings to the elements outside, it leaves you and your home susceptible to mold spores. While we do not treat mold, we can help in the prevention of mold.
What Causes Mold In My Home?
Mold is a part of the natural environment, outside it’s used to break down dead organic matter; inside, it can be a chaotic mess. Mold reproduces by small spores that are invisible to the naked eye and float through the air and all it needs is a small surface that is wet or damp to begin rapidly growing. There are hundreds of types of mold, but they all need moisture to grow.
Dangers Of Mold In Your House
Molds produce allergens and in some cases potentially toxic substances so, by touching or breathing in mold (mold spores) very serious allergic reactions can happen in some people. Mold, over time, destroys the things they grow on.
