How Common is Mold
A common belief is that a truly clean building has absolutely no mold in it. The reason why this is more of a myth than a fact is because it would be a waste of time to attempt to completely rid the building of mold. While mold can pose a threat to the safety of a home, office, store, or any other building, mold is still a part of the environment. It will always go naturally outside a building and it will always try and grow within a building, being that it only needs certain requirements to grow. Requirements like dampness and a certain temperature. Since these conditions can happen anywhere, of course mold will attempt to grow indoors just as easily as outdoors. It isn’t the end of the world, nor is it even noticeable, to have a few stray mold spores floating around. How do you know when mold is posing a threat? You can tell mold is posing a threat to your safety when it grows enough to take over a certain area of the building’s infrastructure. Mold like this won’t grow without a moist environment, so if you do find mass amounts of mold growth then something is probably wrong and you should hire a restoration company to analyze the environment. SERVPRO of East Dayton will come to your home, scan the air for moisture, measure the size of the room, and give you a complete analysis of the damage done. Once this initial procedure is over, they’ll send a team of highly trained restoration professionals to use their intensive cleaning equipment. This equipment will dry out the area of impact, creating an unsuitable environment for further mold growth. In addition, they will remove the affected area in order to stop any possible effects of the mold. Mold often seems like a scary, mysterious danger that could happen when you least expect it. But so long as you stay aware of the possible causes of water damage and mold growth in a building, you can avoid your family, coworkers, or employees from experiencing the hazardous effects of mold growth.
