What causes mold?

 

When moisture problems or water damage occur mold can grow within 24-48 hours. While moisture is the key cause, other conditions support mold growth.

 

What does mold look like?

 

Mold is usually fuzzy in appearance or slimy in texture. The spectrum of the mold color range include green, brown, yellow, black and white. A heavy mold growth could even look like a plant growth covering a surface.

 

What can I do to protect my family from mold – How to remove mold from walls?

 

It is impossible to completely eliminate all mold spores inside. Mold will always be found floating in the air and in house dust. Indoor mold growth can be prevented by controlling water and moisture in the house. The following might prevent or reduce indoor mold growth:

 

• Repair all water leaks & moisture problem areas

• Provide good air circulation

• All HVAC systems should have a good electrostatic filter

• Insulate and ventilate attic space areas

• Clean and dry or remove items that are damaged by water immediately

 

Can mold cause problems?

 

Mold has the potential to cause health problems and even make a home uninhabitable. However, everyone is affected differently when in contact with mold. The mold that might not bother one person could severely affect another. Some mold can produce allergens, irritants and in some cases, potentially toxic chemical substances known as mycotoxins. People who are sensitive to and exposed to mycotoxins can become ill.

Allergic reactions to mold are common. They can be immediate or delayed. People diagnosed with allergies and asthma might be very sensitive to mold. Mold can cause asthma attacks. Others at risk may include: infants, children, the elderly, immune compromised patients, pregnant women and individuals with existing respiratory conditions.

With exposure even in small amounts mold could cause: sinus infections, asthma, skin rash, chronic fatigue, respiratory problems, headaches, nose and throat irritation.

 

How do I know I have Mold?

 

Mold can be found in several places in the home environment. It appears most often in moist or wet areas. A musty odor may also be present. Mold begins to grow indoors when mold spores land on surfaces that are wet or damp. Mold will not grow without water or moisture. Therefore, it is important to dry out wet or moist areas within 24 to 48 hours to prevent mold growth. Some examples of places where mold can be found inside the home include:

 

• Basements, kitchens (bottom of fridge), around bathroom vanities, washer/dryer area

• The underside of carpets and pads

• Surface of walls behind furniture (where condensation forms)

• Attic spaces

• Crawl spaces

 

Should I have my home inspected?

 

Because of growing concerns regarding mold in the home and its effects on health, mold inspections are becoming a common practice. You should not buy a home or  live in a home with mold. A mold inspection performed by a certified mold inspector is your first line of defense!
