Mold, especially after damage from water, can become a major issue if left untreated. Failure to address mold issues has resulted in countless litigation related to health issues and revenue losses. As a certified indoor air quality and mold removal company, LimeGreen Water Damage & Restoration utilizes high-tech testing and remediation equipment to work on both commercial and residential properties.
The Risks of Living with Mold
Mold spores are present just about everywhere. They surround us in the air and lie invisible on the surfaces of items that we touch and use. Certain mold spores aren’t a threat to us. However, some are especially dangerous when they colonize and begin to multiply in number. Mold is a generic term for a variety of fungi. It often shows up in homes as fuzzy growths that may be brown, black, pink, green, or yellow. Sometimes, it gives off a distinctly unpleasant odor.
If mold is all around us, why does it only become a problem in specific areas? The answer is moisture. Any surface or location that is routinely wet is at risk for developing mold and mildew issues. These issues may be out in the open and visible, or they may be hiding in wall voids, crawl spaces, and attics. Even when the building’s occupants are not aware of a mold problem, they could still be adversely affected by it. This is because mold may cause damage to whatever material it lives on. Regardless of whether it is wood, concrete, drywall, roofing tiles, or anything else, mold will cause deterioration. When a problem is allowed to persist long enough, the structural integrity of the building may actually be compromised, and professional mold remediation may be required.

Most people are surprised to learn that you will experience the health effects of mold infestation before you see the structural damages. This is especially true for people who are sensitive to mold exposure. Typical allergic reactions include a stuffy nose, repeated sneezing, rashes, and red-eye. Occasionally, there are even more severe symptoms like shortness of breath.
People with allergies and asthma are particularly vulnerable to mold problems in indoor spaces. However, anyone could be at risk of experiencing an adverse reaction. This includes anyone with chronic lung disease, older adults, infants, small children, and people with compromised immune systems. Prompt medical attention may be necessary after exposure to mold, but this is not where the response should end.
The only way to guard against future health problems associated with exposure to mold is to get rid of it. This is not always an easy task, which is why we recommend that you call in a professional to handle it. At LimeGreen Water Damage & Restoration, we can help you eliminate any variety of mold you find in your home.
