Mold can be found anywhere, creating an unhealthy atmosphere by growing on any substance as long as moisture is present. Molds reproduce by spores, which when carried by air currents, can land on another suitable place to grow. Once a suitable location is found, mold only needs 24 hours to 10 days to grow.

Mold colonies can grow within buildings due to a number of different reasons. Mold can grow in buildings due to flooding, leaky roofs, ventilation issues, plumbing issues or building maintenance issues. Mold feeds on common building materials with moisture present, including drywall, carpets, carpet padding and plywood.

Mold gives off mycotoxins, which are dangerous for humans and animals to inhale. Mold can cause major health issues for humans, including nasal and sinus congestion, coughing, eye irritation, various respiratory problems, headaches, sneezing and asthma. If you are experiencing some of the aforementioned symptoms, it is important to contact mold remediation companies, like Blue Ridge Termite & Pest.

To combat mold, moisture control is a key element, as proper moisture control in buildings will destroy a suitable growing environment for mold. Removing the moisture will allow mold remediation contractors to carefully and safely remove the present mold.

Blue Ridge Termite & Pest will begin the mold remediation process by sealing off the building and filling the affected room with EPA-approved Biocide to kill the mold. Following the utilization of Biocide, we will be able to stage the mold removal process, effectively cleaning up your building.
