MOLD REMOVAL SERVICES
Mold can appear wherever there is moisture, including wooden and carpet surfaces, even food. The best way to avoid mold is to prevent it in the first place by fixing water leaks and reducing moisture with proper ventilation. Health problems that have a connection with mold include allergic reactions, which are common. People with asthma are at greater risk of suffering negative health effects from mold.

WHY MOLD HAPPENS
While it’s great to know where mold most often grows, it’s better to understand why in order to prevent it. Let’s dive deeper and explore the reasons why the basement, for instance, is a problem area.
There are four main reasons why mold so often grows in the basement:
- Basements are prone to flooding.
- Basements are not as well ventilated as the upper floors of a house and are, therefore, more humid.
- Basement walls are cooler, allowing warm air to condense on them in the summer.
- Basement floors rarely have a moisture barrier or proper insulation. With neither a moisture barrier nor proper insulation installed, the moisture from the underlying soil migrates upward.
WHY MOLD IS DANGEROUS
For most people, indoor mold will not cause significant health problems. However, allergic reactions to mold are common. Much like pollen allergies or hay fever, symptoms include sneezing, red eyes, and rashes. People with asthma are at risk of having an asthma attack when mold is present. More severe health problems like difficulty breathing and fever can happen to people who are exposed to large quantities of mold, such as construction workers.
