Mold is very common in buildings and homes and is usually not a major health concern until elevated levels become present. This usually occurs when structural materials are exposed to higher than normal levels of moisture for a prolonged period of time. When this happens mold can cause structural damage by decomposing wood, drywall, carpeting and other organic building materials. Molds can also cause health problems and irritation by producing allergens and toxic substances called mycotoxins.

The removal of mold can be done by utilizing specialized HEPA filtration equipment and applying anti-microbial agents to affected areas. Depending on the extent of damage, some exposed materials may need to be removed. Containment and negative air pressure are used to prevent cross-contamination to other areas of your property.

Mold Pros LLC works with third-party testing companies to develop proper mold remediation protocols. Once the mold has been removed, a final clearance test can be performed, confirming that the mold has been properly remediated.

You have seen continuous reports and heard about the devastation mold can cause when it goes undetected. Many insurance policies do not cover mold growth, and it can result in structural damage and health costs. If you suspect mold might be growing in your home, do not hesitate to reach out to Mold Pros LLC for restoration services in Northern Indiana and Chicagoland.

What are molds?

Mold is an ever-present fungus. Indoors and outdoors, mold is a formidable opponent. There are more than 100,000 known species of mold; at least 1,000 are common in the United States. Fueled by moisture and thriving in humid conditions, mold spores grow rapidly and can become a huge problem for the home in short time. When mold problems are not dealt with quickly and effectively, the problems they cause can be extremely costly.

The Truth About Mold

Specific areas of homes and businesses are ideal for mold to flourish. Bathrooms and basements are more prone to mold growth because of the moisture from leaks and condensation. Under the right conditions, even the smallest amounts of moisture can lead to dangerous mold claims. If you need mold removal, you can turn to Mold Pros LLC.

Fortunately, there are numerous steps you can take to minimize your exposure to mold.
