3 Facts You Need To Know About Mold

4/16/2020 (Permalink)

Where there is water damage there is the possibility of mold. Have you ever noticed a musty smell in one central location but you’re not sure where it’s coming from? If you answered yes, that means at some point you have probably had some type of water damage that went untreated and mold has developed. There’s no need to panic though, SERVPRO of South Chesterfield/Wildwood can make it look “Like it never even happened."  Here are three facts you need to know about mold.

3 facts about mold damage

  1.  Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
  2. Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air. Spores can enter your home through windows, doors, AC/heating system, and can even hitch a ride on your clothing or your pets!
  3. Mold spores thrive on moisture. Spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.

Confusion and misunderstanding surround the topic of mold and mold remediation. Some restoration businesses even make claims to remove all mold from a building. This is a fallacy. It is impossible to remove all mold because mold spores occur naturally both indoors and outdoors.

When there’s mold damage at your home or business, count on the company that fits the “mold!” SERVPRO of South Chesterfield/Wildwood is your local remediation and restoration company. Our heroes specialize in mold remediation.  Call (636)537-5400 for your solution!
