Mold spores are present in the air, they’re part of the natural environment. We can’t control mold growth outdoors, as it plays an important part in decomposing dead organic matter. Indoors, however, mold growth should be prevented by all means.
Mold is present in damp, humid environments. Usually, after a flood, or if there’s signs of water damage (leaks in roofs, windows, vents, or pipes) mold can start to grow within 24 to 48 hours.
Bio-One of Chula Vista specialists offer mold remediation services. Our certified technicians work throughout San Diego County and surrounding communities to properly remediate residential and business properties from mold damage. If left unattended, mold can cause major complications to the property, as well as respiratory health problems.
What is mold and where does it grow?
Mold is type of fungi, it encompasess millions of microorganisms that help in the process of decomposing dead organic matter (trees, leaves, and other organisms).
There are many types of mold, some of them are harmless and others can be very toxic. If mold is disturbed, spores are released into the air, making it easy to make their way indoors. These spores will disseminate in poorly ventilated areas, and areas where humidity levels are high. All that mold needs to grow is water and organic matter.
In case you’re wondering “what is organic matter?” it basically entails all surfaces in the house or propert: wallpapers, drywall, house furniture, household tiems, wooden structures… all of these are surfaces where mold can grow and cause damage. Bio-One of Chula Vista’s certified technicians can help you assess the level of damage in your property, and we make sure to remediate areas affected by mold in a timely manner.
How does mold affect your health?
Mold is quick to consume organic matter, which poses a serious problem in terms of building structure, not to mention that mold affects the quality of air indoors, making it a dangerous environment for humans and animals to live in. When mold concentrates in small areas, it can affect people with pre-existing health conditions like ashtma, lung complications and other respiratory problems. Furthermore, mold exposure can translate into headaches, allergies, red eyes, and shortness of breath.
