You Might Already Need Mold Remediation And Not Know It
Even if you haven’t ever had a basement flood or other major event that caused a large amount of standing water to enter your home, you may still need mold remediation without even realizing it.
How is this possible? The answer lies with honest facts about the nature of mold itself.
Mold is a type of fungus, and fungus is very robust and hardy. Since mold presents itself mainly in the form of spores, it gets around easily from place to place all throughout Maryland. It can get into your home on clothing, shoes, or on a pet’s pelt.
Once it gets inside, it will usually lie dormant for quite some time. Mold generally needs to have wet and dark conditions in order to grow actively. However, those conditions might already be in your home.
If you have a small leak somewhere in the house, for example, you could find that you have had mold for a long time already without even realizing it. Mold can also insert itself into your home when there is water damage from fire suppression or other causes.
Obviously, here at AA Action Waterproofing, we mainly see mold remediation cases after a basement flood. However, this is by no means the only situation where it can pop up.
How Do You Know If Mold Issues Have Already Begun?
Obviously, if you’ve had a basement flood of any description, you should call AA Action Waterproofing right away. Not only can we resolve the issue and make sure that it won’t happen again, but we can also prevent mold from taking root throughout your home.
However, mold can be sneakier than that, so be aware of the signs:
- Watery eyes, redness, itching, and other signs of irritation.
- Coughing, sneezing, difficulty breathing or other unusual allergy symptoms.
- Headaches, dizziness, nausea, or the feeling you need to go outside for “fresh air.”
When mold is left unchecked, it can contribute to very serious respiratory issues. These can include fungal infections that can have devastating consequences for children, the elderly, and animals.
