Things You Should Know About Mold Damage to Your Phoenix Home
SERVPRO Keeps Your Home Clean and Safe with Mold Remediation Services
Finding mold growth in your home is never a good sign. It may cause health effects, and you should act fast to remediate it as soon as possible. While cleaning it up is certainly not a DIY job, professionals can help you to get mold damage under control in no time.
When you spot mold in your Phoenix home, the first thing to do is to make sure that you contact professionals. Trying to clean mold by yourself can make the spores airborne and spread the contamination. SERVPRO professionals have the necessary expertise and experience to clean up mold damage safely and efficiently. Knowing the basics about mold can help you tackle mold damage better and also prevent it from spreading to unaffected areas.
Structure of the Mold
Mold starts out as a tiny, microscopic spore that is airborne. The spore is just like a seed that can remain dormant and viable for long periods of time. However, when it finds the right conditions of moisture and nutrients, it can germinate and produce colonies that we see as mold growths.
Spores have a filamentous structure called hyphae that they use as roots to anchor them to the surface and absorb nutrients and moisture. The hyphae also help the mold to spread across the surface.
As moisture is the most important factor causing the spores to germinate, it is essential that the moisture content of your home is under control. Inspect areas such as attics, bathrooms, and crawlspaces for signs of mold and call SERVPRO professionals as soon as you spot them.
