Exterior Mold on Concrete and Block

Whether mold damage is indoors or out, ceilings, walls, garages, on shaded outside areas of your home – mold can and should be assessed and remediated within your living and working spaces. The outside of your structure should also be inspected as outdoor mold can find its way indoors through cracks and spread.

By nature mold produces great numbers of microscopic spores which spread quickly. Concentrated amounts of mold on surfaces areas which have even minute cracks can let mold seep into your home, and that’s a very real threat. The good news is that there are private sector hyper-hepa all home and room filtration systems capable of trapping mold spores which are between 3 and 12 microns in size. A micron is one millionth of a meter, so mold, once discovered and deemed to be a threat, needs to be assessed and remediated quickly, and additionally we can advise you regarding both the use of humidistats, which are devices that automatically regulate the humidity of the air in a room or building, as well as air filtration systems and air exchange systems.

What is Mold?

Mold, mildew, yeast, mushroom, and rust are all names of fungus. Fungus plays a vital role in nature by degrading natural materials such as dead wood and leaves. Before modern times, fungus was only dangerous if certain types were ingested. But now, fungus can grow indoors by feeding on paper, cardboard, plasterboard, and tiles. This kind of fungus, referred to as mold, can be inhaled and absorbed through the skin. If ignored, mold can become toxic and can affect your health as well as create massive amounts or property damage.

What causes Mold?

Mold needs two things to grow: food and water. Since buildings are made of wood products and other natural materials, mold food is always plentiful. Therefore, water is the key in controlling mold growth indoors. Mold can begin growing within 24 hours of a water spill and can release spores that travel through the air. Water can get inside a number of ways:

  • Unsealed windows and doors
  • Window condensation
  • Interior Vapor Barriers
  • Leaky plumbing
  • Leaky roofs and walls
  • Neglected HVAC ducts
  • Air humidity

Mold and Your Family

Doctors are realizing that mold is often the culprit behind many different health problems. If you own a home or office, you need to be aware of the severe health problems mold can cause for your family or employees:

  • Mold has been linked to tripling the asthma rate over the last 20 years.
  • Mycotoxins can cause headaches, memory loss, and mood swings.
  • Allergies: itchy red eyes, runny nose, sore throat, and a hacking cough.
  • Respiratory problems: difficulty breathing, wheezing.
  • People with weakened immune systems are more susceptible to mold.

Mold and Your Property Investment

Did you know that new homes and offices are often moldier than older ones? Modern building designs implement airtight structures to conserve energy and are made from more organic materials. Out of control mold devalues and destroys property, even makes entire buildings toxic and uninhabitable.

  • Because mold mostly grows in unseen places, real estate agents and home inspectors are sometimes completely unaware of the extent of damage from mold.
  • Cleaning infected areas often ends up disturbing the mold causing it to release millions of toxic spores into the air.
  • Ventilation systems recycle air contaminated with mold spores throughout buildings

According to the CDC (Center for Disease Control): “When mold spores drop on places where there is excessive moisture, such as where leakage may have occurred in roofs, pipes, walls, plant pots, or where there has been flooding, they will grow. Many building materials provide suitable nutrients that encourage mold to grow. Wet cellulose materials, including paper and paper products, cardboard, ceiling tiles, wood, and wood products, are particularly conducive for the growth of some molds. Other materials such as dust, paints, wallpaper, insulation materials, drywall, carpet, fabric, and upholstery, commonly support mold growth.”

Mold Removal: The Myth

The myth of bleach and Mold Removal. A wise man once said that using bleach on mold doesn’t kill it, it just makes it angry and it only comes back stronger than ever. Yes, bleach will kill mold on smooth, non-porous surfaces, and it will even temporarily kill mold on the top layers of organic matter. But bleach contains water, and when the water in bleach leeches down to the deeper layers of porous materials like drywall, particle board in cabinets and furniture, etc. the mold explodes back to life and returns with a vengeance. Even the Clorox company, the makers of bleach, say that Clorox doesn’t kill mold.
