3 Basic Things Mold Needs To Grow In Your Home or Business?
- Jul 13, 2016
Avoid giving Mold the things it needs to grow!Nutrients (food), suitable place to grow, and moisture are the only three things needed to have mold grow and spread quickly. These three things are not hard for mold to find. Mold can be hidden in walls, under carpets, behind ceiling tiles or it can be visible and growing right in front of your eyes. How do you know if you have mold?
- Look for visible mold growth (it may look cottony, velvety, rough, or leathery and have different colors like white, gray, brown, black, yellow, or green). Mold often appears as a staining or fuzzy growth on furniture or building materials (walls, ceilings, or anything made of wood or paper). Look for signs of moisture or water damage (water leaks, standing water, water stains, condensation, etc.).
- Check around air handling units (air conditioners, furnaces) for standing water. Routinely inspect the evaporator coils, liner surfaces, drain pans and drain lines.
- Search areas where you notice mold odors. If you can smell an earthy or musty odor, you may have a mold problem.
- If mold-allergic people have some allergy symptoms when in your home, mold might be the problem.
Check out what Brice Pelfrey, CPM, Director of Property Management, Beck Property Company, Inc. said about his mold experience with Complete....." I have used several mold remediation companies in the past, and tenants are very rarely completely satisfied once the work is done. Usual tenant complaints are of headaches due to mold still in the facility or call weeks later and say the mold had returned. The last time I had a mold problem, I called Complete. They performed the work after hours so that regular business would not be interrupted. They performed all the mold remediation, and I have not had a single complaint from the tenant. I was very impressed with how thorough the crew was with the mold removal and I was especially pleased at how quickly Complete finished the job. I highly recommend Complete. "
