Mold leaves an unsightly mess that smells bad, but even worse, it can damage your home and your health. While black mold is labeled as toxic, all molds are bad, especially when they’re growing in your house. Attics, basements, bathrooms, and crawlspaces are prime breeding grounds for mold because they provide damp, humid environments where mold can thrive. If mold makes its way into your HVAC system, the spores can travel through air ducts and quickly spread throughout your home. Prompt removal of mold is vital to prevent a small problem from getting worse and more expensive to deal with. Mold remediation from Eco-Dry Waterproofing can literally save your home and health.
Importance Of Mold Removal For Your Home
Mold feeds on organic material, eating away at it until it finally rots and falls apart. This can include paper, fabrics, and wood. This includes wallpaper, drywall, carpeting, ceiling tiles, wooden paneling, wall studs, floorboards, and other vital structures inside your home. Mold damage causes ceilings to collapse, floors to cave in and walls to fall. Left unchecked, mold can destroy your home.
Importance Of Mold Removal For Your Health
Mold can also be hazardous to your health with many adverse health effects, including “Sick Building Syndrome.” Mold exposure causes a wide range of health issues, depending on the type of mold and severity of your infestation. The most common ailment is respiratory infections, which can be especially hazardous to anyone with asthma and other breathing difficulties. Other symptoms and illnesses can include sinus infections, headaches, memory loss, fatigue, dizziness, nausea, fever, skin rashes and hives, depression and immune system suppression. This also could make you more susceptible to further illness and/or disease. The longer you’re exposed to mold, the worse your condition can get.
Count On Eco-Dry
The only way to stop mold growth is to remove moisture, which is its main food source. Without moisture removal, mold remediation is pointless, because the mold will return.
Eco-Dry Waterproofing has over 25 years of experience battling mold. We not only solve the immediate problem, we discover the root of this problem to prevent it from reoccurring. Our mold remediation process starts with negative air cleaning machines and air scrubbers with HEPA filters to clean the air. Solid materials containing mold are brushed and vacuumed using HEPA filters, but items that can’t be cleaned are removed.
We kill remaining mold spores with biocide chemicals, then apply an antimicrobial coating to protect your home from future mold growth. If you suspect mold growth in your home, time is of the essence. Contact us today to get your mold removed.
