The contents of your home or business may be affected by water damage or mold and it’s important to take the proper steps to professionally sanitize them using commercial grade disinfectants and equipment.
Mold occurs outdoors as a natural part of our environment, and does its job in nature by breaking down dead matter like leaves and downed trees. They reproduce via tiny spores that can’t be seen by our naked eye. When these spores land on a damp surface, mold is produced.
That’s why it’s important to always take preventative measures. Be diligent in keeping areas like bathrooms and laundry rooms adequately vented and never leave standing water or wet towels on the floor. Watch for outside drainage and direct it away from your buildings, clean your gutters to prevent back up and keep your Air conditioner drip pans clean and the lines unobstructed.
Black mold is one of the most well-known toxic molds and thrives on materials like fiberboard, cardboard, paper or fabrics. Common areas are bathrooms, kitchens, showers, toilets, or basements.
Molds can be dangerous! They release mycotoxins that can be irritating or even harmful to people with compromised immune systems or preexisting conditions. Some common signs are coughing, stuffy nose, itchy or red eyes or itchy skin. The medical community is not all in agreement upon the effects of mold. For more detailed information, consult a health professional or your state or local health department.
