Mold Remediation FAQs

Mold infestations are not only bothersome to your home and health, but they can be challenging to get rid of. With microscopic mold spores existing nearly everywhere, you can’t completely escape mold. However, you can reduce mold levels in your home or business, making it a safer place with better indoor air quality. In combination with mold removal, mold remediation can promote normal concentrations of carbon dioxide and proper temperature and humidity levels–this promotes the health and well-being of everyone inside!

Mold Removal and Mold Remediation FAQs

You might be surprised to learn this, but mold is everywhere. Not in high concentrations, of course, but it is still in the air. Mold likes wet, dark places, and when it finds those conditions, that’s when it multiplies. When you are dealing with water damages of any kind, mold is not far behind and you may need mold removal as part of the full remediation process. Whether it’s from a pipe bursting, a leak from some plumbing, a flood from a natural disaster, or any other number of reasons, the conditions can present themselves as perfect for mold growth.

Yes, mold can cause health problems when it isn’t taken care of. Some people have allergic reactions to the proliferation of mold, while others can have asthma attacks and irritation of the eyes, nose, and throat. And being indoors is worse than being outdoors. If not dealt with quickly by mold remediation, the growth of mold can cause these reactions to become more severe and become serious illnesses. If infants, young children, elderly, or those with respiratory issues and immune issues should not remain in areas that contain mold.

Mold is something that really needs attention to detail to ensure that it is completely removed to prevent it from coming back. Using a professional service such as Atlanta Restoration will ensure that all areas with mold will be dealt with. They have a variety of approaches and chemicals to use to fully remediate mold where it should not come back.

And then once the area has been cleaned, be sure that the area remains well ventilated and add a dehumidifier if needed to keep the moisture content down.

Mold can grow and multiply surprisingly quickly. The more the conditions are favorable for mold to grow, the faster it will grow. This is why it is important to deal with mold right away when it is found with mold removal. The longer it takes to deal with it, the more it will negatively affect you and your health. Don’t take chances, contact Atlanta Restoration right away so their team can get into action and help remove all of the mold in your location.

While mold and mildew are both fungi and grow in similar conditions, there are some differences between them to help identify what you are dealing with. Mildew is typically white, gray or yellow in color, whereas mold is most often green or black in color. Their texture is also different, with mildew being fluffy or powdery, and mold being more fuzzy or slimy to the touch. Molds can thrive on any organic matter, including clothing, leather, paper, and the ceilings, walls and floors of homes with moisture management problems. Mildew often lives on shower walls, windowsills, and other places where moisture levels are high.
