Mold Remediation & Inspection Service in O'Fallon
It may be mold or mildew. When it come's to mold remediation, what's the difference? Both are varieties of fungi that can wreak all kind of havoc in your home or place of business. Both are triggered by various situations which include standing water accumulation brought on by flooding to broken pipes and leaky air conditioning units. When high concentrations of moisture combines with natural elements and humid temperatures, it can create the perfect storm for mold and mildew to accumulate. The most effective way to combat the overgrowth of these fungi is to attack them at the source. Asbestos Ace in O'Fallon, MO has trained professionals skilled in the art of mold removal. Our team can find even the most hard to find sources of mold and mildew.
Why you should call a mold removal specialist
There have been many DIY and home improvement shows on television lately, that lead everyday homeowners to believe they can remedy their mold and mildew problem with a spray and some bleach bottle. Pay close attention if you are one of the homeowners who use a ShopVac to dry out your basement after a flood. While the floors, walls and other structures may feel dry to the touch, moisture can possibly be trapped deep inside. While that might serve as a temporary fix by cleaning the surface where mold appears, it does not address the root of the problem. Quite literally, mold has "roots" or spores that can regenerate and grow over and over again if not properly removed.
When the conditions for that moisture are perfect, mold and mildew are real possibilities. It only takes as little as 48 hours after any standing water accumulation for both substances to begin to grow. This is among the many reasons why you must hire a professional to remove mold in your home or place of business.
Additionally, exposure to Black Mold can not only wreak havoc on your home, but your health. When mold and mildew are present, those who suffer from asthma or eczema can see an increase in symptoms. That is why quick action is crucial in order to help avoid any potentially serious issues.
