Why Mold Damage in Your Springdale Home Should Concern You
Springdale Properties Can Degrade from Mold Infestations without Remediation--Call SERVPRO
There are many threats that your Springdale home may experience throughout its lifetime, and many of these you can take care of on your own with limited expense. Certain conditions, such as fungal and mold growth throughout areas of your residence, require specific professional expertise to overcome and ultimately restore. Many homeowners are under the impression that mold in their home is not that much of a risk, and here is what you should get concerned about if you discover a colony in your house.
While mold damages might affect multiple areas and surfaces throughout your Springdale home, most of the time, this occurs in areas that you might not frequent as often as you should. Mold growth occurs when you are not actively looking for it and can spread quickly throughout the affected area once it has the opportunity to seat and thrive. Our mold remediation technicians have encountered many homes where the mold growth can reach the point of a health issue, not to mention the structural concerns that come along with it.
You see, mold growth in your home is much like any living organism. It needs food to continue to grow, spread, and thrive. The food source for mold colonies is organic materials usually found in the construction elements of your home. For example, drywall and wood framing are often easy targets for active mold spores looking to colonize. As the colony grows and seats more deeply, this material erodes and degrades as it feeds the organism, eventually reaching the point of being unsalvageable to professional technicians.
Even more alarming than the potential structural concerns for an active organism spreading throughout your home, is the possible health effects that could come along with it. Exposure to active colonies has gotten linked with several health risks, especially to those in your home that already struggle with respiratory concerns. Our SERVPRO technicians have the safety equipment to get in and isolate the area, working to reduce the organism’s reach while we remove the colony or the material it has used to grow. We are not, nor do we claim to be doctors, but here is a reference concerning possible health effects caused by these fungi put out by the EPA.
Mold is something that you want to get taken care of as soon as you find it growing in your home. You can always depend on the emergency response team at SERVPRO of Fayetteville / Springdale to help you effectively neutralize the threat and return your home to original conditions, "Like it never even happened."
