Hopkins Mold Damage Remediation Professionals
Professional Mold Damage Remediation in Hopkins
All it takes is excess humidity or a small water leak for mold damage in Hopkins to form in your home or business. Mold spores can produce harmless allergens, irritants, and other minor health effects. The first step in addressing any growth is to identify and manage the source. If moisture problems are not addressed, then any fungi cleanup or removal will only be a short-term solution. At some point, this type of growth will return.
Here are some interesting mold facts and myths:
• How many types of mold are there? There are more than 100,000 types and species of mold. The common types of home and office mold species are Cladosporium, Penicillium, Aspergillus, and Alternaria.
• Can mold can only grow around pipes, leaks or because of floods? Mold does not grow on surfaces that are directly affected by water. Mold spores often occur within the HVAC systems of buildings and homes. They can grow on any surface that has its ideal environment, moisture, and humidity.
• Is black mold worse than other molds? Mold growth comes in a range of colors. Many molds classified black are actually a very dark green. Black mold is not necessarily more dangerous than other species of mold.
• Can this fungus cause skin rashes? The CDC reports that exposure to molds doesn’t contribute to rashes.
• Can I clean mold to eliminate it? Mold can become latent and reactivate. Tiny mold spores replicate every 24 hours, thus often growing back. For porous materials, like ceiling tiles, carpeting, wood, paper, and drywall, surface cleaning is often not enough.
