Mold, sometimes called mildew, is an aquatic or wood-based fungus that grows on wet objects. You may want to check out Baton Rouge Mold Remediation for more. Mold is an essential part of nature and is actually a natural biological component of the modern environment; however, excessive mold growth can be hazardous to health and is usually caused by insufficient ventilation, humidity, moisture and heat. Mold has beautiful leaves, flowers and can spread easily through the air.
Even though it is not considered a pest, mold can cause allergies, irritations and even infections. Mold’s roots penetrate the soil and travel into the structure of the building causing interior damages. This process of root penetration causes walls and floor drain to be compromised which allows water, condensation, and unsafe temperature levels to enter the home.
Mold can affect any part of a building, and depending on its type, may require different types of treatments. Most commonly seen mold symptoms are the formation of black or dark greenish spots on the surface of objects, or the development of a musty odor, or a musty smell that emanates from the air. These symptoms can often be mistaken for other respiratory conditions such as asthma or allergies. Mold is not considered a threat to health, but exposure to spores can cause serious health issues to those who are highly sensitive to microorganisms. Mold removal should be left to experienced professionals who have extensive training in the removal of mold because the removal process can be very dangerous if not done correctly.
It is best to hire professionals to properly remove mold because inexperienced persons and/or businesses may improperly handle the mold remediation process itself resulting in the release of spores into the air. Mold should never be removed from a building without following the proper mold remediation procedures outlined by the appropriate state or county. These procedures should include protective gear including gloves, masks, eye protection, long sleeves, and overalls, masks, and cleaners. Mold remediation should also include testing the area periodically for levels of mold, which can be determined through testing kits. Mold restoration involves a number of steps including the proper cleaning of affected materials and the removal of any spores that have been released into the air.
