The Damage Mold Can Do
Mold is something that you probably don’t think much of during the winter – and who can blame you? With the polar vortex bringing incredibly cold temperatures and heavy snow throughout the northeast, mold seems like a distant danger. 9 deaths occurred in early January as a result of snow and cold, and mold is usually far from our minds with things like that happening in the region.
But it is still a danger, even in the cold of winter. At AA Action Waterproofing, we’ve seen firsthand the kind of damage that mold can do to a home and a family. That’s why we offer full mold remediation services as well as waterproofing to prevent it from occurring. But before you consider our service, we think it’s important that you spend some time understanding more about the seriousness of mold in your home.
• Health – The primary risk that mold brings with it is on your health and wellbeing. Mold can cause serious health issues to occur including respiratory problems, nausea, headaches, and much more. Left unchecked, it can have even more serious consequences.
• Property Damage – While mold remediation can remove the mold from your home, there is a chance that you’ll lose items that are near and dear to your heart. The basement is often where people store various belongings, but if mold contaminates items they’ll have to be thrown out. You’ll lose valuable items because of mold.
• Expense – Mold problems can also have a serious impact on your bank account. Major mold remediation can cost a significant amount, and even minor removals will still require the use of special tools and safety steps. As a result, mold can damage your health as well as your wallet.
These points should help highlight an obvious fact – preventing mold growth is much better than simply dealing with it when it arrives. While we at AA Action Waterproofing can help with mold remediation, we firmly believe that it’s better to prevent than to treat. Things like basement waterproofing and inspection can have a big impact on reducing the spread and growth of mold, and help keep your health, property, and finances in much better states.
