Causes of Mold: Reducing and Resolving Treatment by Expert

Mold Reducing and Resolving Treatment by Expert

Household mold is more than just an eyesore, whether it's the slimy black stains on your shower curtain, the fuzzy white areas on your cellar floor, or the glossy orange coating that grows on your kitchen drain. Mold in your home will make you sick in some situations, particularly if you have allergies or asthma.

Mold contamination will irritate your eyes, skin, nose, mouth, and lungs whether you are allergic to molds or not. Here's what you can do to fight mold and protect yourself and your home with the help of a mold inspection & removal expert.

At New England Restoration, we have experts in the diagnosis of the causes of damp and condensation, which can lead to mold, integrating a complete diagnostic process with a strategy for restorative action, as well as a method to remove the mold issue.

What Actually Is Mold, and What Causes It?

mold causes

Molds continue to decompose plant and animal matter outside. They produce tiny spores that pass across the air as members of the fungi family. These spores will reach your home through the following channels:

  • Doors
  • Windows
  • Heating and air conditioning vents
  • Clothing and shoes
  • Pets

Mold spores cannot expand inside unless the conditions are favorable. The spores can attach to a wide range of materials, including fabrics, carpet, paper, and wood. Mold likes damp environments with little sun, such as:

  • In sinks, bathtubs, and showers
  • Near leaky pipes
  • Around windows
  • In basements, crawl spaces, and attics

Why Is Mold a Problem?

  • Mold can digest organic materials like paper, soil, adhesives, leather, cotton, and starches.
  • Mold will stain paper, fabric, and leather, and the conditions that cause mold to develop hasten chemical degradation in books and paper (high heat and high humidity).
  • Some molds are poisonous to humans (Aspergillus fumigatus)

How to Prevent Mold Growth and Reproduction

Dehumidifiers are an efficient way to keep relative humidity levels within a reasonable range. When the temperature is between 68 and 72 degrees Fahrenheit, most indoor conditions have a relative humidity of 40-50 percent. To avoid mold growth and replication, you must perform any investigation to identify the cause of any moisture infiltration.

If you cannot see any mold but are concerned, try contacting a specialist. We do an accurate assessment of the issue and take remedial steps. Enable us to simplify your life by removing mold from your house.
