Requirements For Mold Growth In Your Phoenix Home
Mold Growth In Your Home
Most Phoenix homeowners would agree that they would do whatever was necessary to keep harmful mold from growing in their houses. Unfortunately, with misinformation about how mold growth occurs and the preventative measures to take to avoid it, many houses struggle with keeping this presence from affecting their families.
There are no good varieties of mold that can grow inside of your home, and likewise, no type of growth that you can wait to remove from your house. The longer you wait for remediation, the worse the mold damages become in your Phoenix home until they have caused irreparable damage and potentially adversely affected the health of those who have gotten exposed to the growing colony.
Persistent moisture is one of the primary causes of mold growth in your home, and this is often the most challenging of the conditions to avoid. Many people are unaware of moisture-ridden areas of their home if they are not in high traffic areas and seen on a regular basis. Locating the source of this moisture is one of the top priorities of professional remediators on our SERVPRO team, as eliminating this food source can keep further colonization from occurring.
Organic materials are another requirement for mold growth to occur, but these can readily get found in modern construction. Even in homes built decades ago, wood framing was a primary component to the design. The colony feeds and thrives on materials like wood and drywall, eroding these areas as the colony spreads. Microbial growth that has persisted for an extended period often requires specific materials to get removed entirely and replaced rather than to salvage them with mold removal and restoration techniques.
Finding mold in your home should spring you into action towards locating a reputable and qualified professional remediation company. Our SERVPRO of East Phoenix applied microbial remediation technicians have extensive training and expertise combatting all varieties of mold that affect homes and commercial properties.
