Is that mold?

The Dangers of Mold

Some mold species—such as penicillin—are beneficial to humans. Unfortunately, this is not the kind of mold that typically grows inside your home. The most common species of mold strains in homes are the ones that pose a risk to your health.

Common symptoms of long-term mold exposure include:

  • Headache
  • Sore throat
  • Runny nose
  • Sneezing
  • Coughing
  • Fatigue
  • Watery eyes
  • Congestion
  • Asthma attacks

What you may have been attributing to seasonal allergies may, in fact, be the result of mold growth. If you have been experiencing chronic symptoms and have had recent water damage, a mold infestation could be to blame.

Water Damage

Just like any other living organism, mold needs both food and water to survive. Your home already has plenty of food available in the form of organic (i.e. naturally occurring) materials such as wood, fabric, grout, paint, and drywall.

When moisture is present (and doesn’t dry out quickly), the mold spores that are naturally present in the air can form a colony.

Mold is one of the biggest reasons why water damage is such a problem. Under the right conditions, mold can begin growing in as little as 24 hours.

Flooding from a storm, soggy carpet from a leaky pipe, an undetected roof leak…these can all be a potential environment for mold to grow. This is why water damage restoration usually includes a partial focus on eliminating mold.

Mold Containment

Once mold is detected (usually during water damage restoration), the first step is to contain the mold to keep it from reproducing and spreading throughout your home.

Containment involves constructing an airtight barrier to keep mold spores from traveling to other areas (and starting a new mold growth). Like other mold removal companies, Axel Works uses a non-porous polyethylene sheeting and air movers to seal off the infestation and protect the rest of your home.

Once the mold has been safely contained, the next step is to determine if professional lab testing is necessary.

Under Florida law, mold removal companies cannot provide mold testing, as this is a conflict of interest. If necessary, Axel Works will refer you to a reliable testing service to determine the concentration and type of mold present.
