Mold is the uninvited house guest you do not want to entertain. It can be sneaky and bold because it never comes alone. Mold always brings its friends—mold spores that multiply like rabbits in the springtime and can spread like a prairie fire with a strong wind behind it. The point we want to convey is that one patch of mold goes a long way, and it can create some serious health problems.
If you can see mold on the outside of your walls, you can’t imagine how much more mold is hiding behind your walls, under your floorboards, or in the corners and crevices of your basement and attic. Mold is constantly growing and spreading. Another way of looking at mold is to picture a floating iceberg that you can only see the top 10% of potential danger. It’s the same with mold. You’re probably only seeing a small percentage of what could become, at best, an irritating situation, or at worst, a major health hazard.
Why do you need an experienced mold remediation team? Simply stated because, at one time or another, most of us have tried to spray a visible mold patch with an over-the-counter product that doesn’t solve the problem long-term. The mold always returns.
Mold is bold. It doesn’t like to leave once it has found a home, so the probability of you discovering and eliminating the source of your mold problem without professional-grade detecting equipment is highly unlikely. Mold takes up residence in your residence without any prejudice, kicking up its feet and staying around as long as it likes—until you call in the professionals.
Allowed to grow and spread, mold can become a serious irritation to your everyday health by causing:
- Eye and throat irritation
- Nasal stuffiness
- Skin rashes
- Allergic reactions
What’s more, mold spores can initiate serious asthma attacks for those who suffer from this respiratory disease. Anyone with pre-existing or chronic respiratory issues can have increased difficulty in simply breathing. An asthma attack is serious and scary to witness. As previously noted, mold is bold and potentially dangerous.
The fact of the matter is, Woodbury, MN, like the rest of the state, can be a fairly wet and moist place. We certainly have our share of snowfall, and after all, we’re also the land of 10,000 lakes. There’s plenty of H2O to go around and create all sorts of potential homes for mold spores to visit and thrive in.
