The Importance Of Mold Testing
When a basement comes into contact with moisture, whether it is through the air or due to a leak, mold can begin to grow on wall surfaces, floor surfaces, carpets, ceilings, and most crevices of your property. While the mold is not universally dangerous to your health, there are some types of mold that can be, and learning just what type of mold you may be dealing with is important to ensuring your overall health and the safety of your property.
Mold can severely damage property, and if mold growth is allowed to take over a space, this can lead to thousands of dollars in damaged goods. Furniture, toys, clothing, carpeting, and anything that may have come into contact with the mold can become ruined depending on the severity of the problem and the type of mold present, so it is always important to check your basement area for mold regularly, and if any is found, to have that mold tested to know exactly what you may be exposed to.
