Answers Concerning Mold and Mold Remediation For Your Glendale Area Home
SERVPRO Can Cleanup Mold Infestations
Mold often flourishes in warm, damp, humid areas of your home, easily spreading through airborne mold spores. It can survive in even the harshest environments just waiting for the right conditions to exist that helps promote growth.
Finding mold damage in your Glendale area home does not mean that your health is in danger. Molds and fungus can be found everywhere within our environment. No one even knows how many species of mold exist, because different species often blend, creating entirely new species that endure within the environment provided.
Common forms of indoor molds that SERVPRO technicians face include Cladosporium, Penicillium, Alternaria, and Aspergillus each of which comes with a different warning.
Cladosporium – One of the most common fungi, existing both indoors and outdoors. This species of mold produces olive-green to brown or black colonies, formed in simple or branching chains.
Penicillium – Otherwise known to produce penicillin, which is used as an antibiotic to kill or stop the growth of several different types of bacteria inside of the human body, a species that produces green colonies that sprout colorless hyphae.
Alternaria – Plant fungi that also often affects human allergens. If allowed to grow into colonies of sufficient size, 299 species can grow inside of your home, leading to hay fever, hypersensitivity and the development of asthma in some people.
Aspergillus – The first cataloged species of mold, often taking hold of starchy foods such as bread and potatoes. This species lives in oxygen-rich environments, an Aerobe that flourishes better when higher amounts of oxygen are present.
Molds do not affect all people in the same ways, mostly causing minor irritations to a fully-grown adult person, mold exists within our environment to help recycle materials back into our eco-system. Even if we could remove mold entirely, we should never attempt to do so.
SERVPRO supplies homeowners with the information needed to make informed decisions concerning mold damage on their property. You should understand that regardless of the amount or type of mold that exists, it can take a professional remediation specialist to get things under control properly.
Without the help of certified remediation technicians from SERVPRO, mold growth can return over and over, covering more of your home, and lead to continuing damage.
