Dangers and Signs of Mold
Mold feeds on moisture, so the main cause of mold growth indoors is water damage. Damp areas from floods, burst pipes, or roof leaks create ideal conditions for mold growth, and it takes as little as 24–48 hours after exposure to water for mold to appear. Left untreated, you’ll face two main dangers of mold in your home or office:
Permanent structural damage—Mold eats away at the material in walls, ceilings, and floors. This results in permanent damage to the structure of the building and expensive repairs.
Health concerns—Asthma, allergies, and respiratory and skin issues are the main side effects of mold. In severe cases when black mold is present, you can experience headaches, dizziness, and memory loss from breathing the toxins. Children are often most susceptible to the negative effects of mold.
To avoid these dangers, it’s important to address mold problems as soon as you suspect an issue.
Common signs of mold include:
Dark areas on walls, floors, and ceilings
Visible damp areas
Allergies and respiratory problems that get worse or don’t go away
Delaying mold remediation and restoration is not worth the health risks to children and other family members, pets, or employees. The specially trained technicians at Construction Solutions work to stop the growth of mold and fully clean and eradicate it from your home or office.
Mold Remediation and Restoration Process
Construction Solution experts are trained in specific mold remediation techniques. We have special gear and equipment and take proper precautions to safely remove mold. Let us take care of the damage and return your home or business and belongings to their mold-free condition.
Our process includes the following steps:
Assess—In the assessment phase, we determine what areas of the property are affected and the extent of the damage. Based on the assessment, we develop the best solution for removing the mold.
Inspect—Once we understand the extent of the situation, we examine the entire property for a better understanding of where the mold has spread. The inspection includes thoroughly checking and testing for mold in moisture-prone areas like basements as well as all floors, walls, windows, pipes, ducts, and furniture.
Dehumidify—Eliminating the source of the mold growth ensures it doesn’t come back, so we remove moisture by drying out the property. This may involve ventilating rooms, insulating walls, and installing fans.
Remove and Sanitize—The main step in the process is cleaning the infested area to kill and remove the mold and eliminate musty odors. We use the highly effective and completely safe process known as dry ice blasting.
