Signs & Types of Mold
Mold spores are present almost everywhere, growing when they meet sufficient temperature, moisture, and organic material.
Fifty percent (50%) of homes have at least one resident with allergies, with the American Lung Association showing that 88 million Americans are suffering from some sort of respiratory distress. Ninety percent (90%) of people with allergies show sensitivity to mold spores.
Black Mold is a highly toxic mold that is rare but dangerous when it grows in the home.
Black mold spores host a fungus that produces carcinogenic mycotoxins that are linked to ailments such as liver cancer, lung cancer, chronic liver damage, acute or chronic nervous system damage, endocrine problems, and others.
Rot and Decay
Mold and rot can begin to form in damp wood in as little as 24-48 hours.
If allowed to damage wood unchecked, rot, mold, and dry rot can lead to many thousands of dollars’ worth of damage to a home. In the case of dry rot, a 75% loss of material strength can be caused by just a 1% weight loss. Rot and mold in wood should be addressed as quickly as possible.
