Biggest Causes of Mold

Beside excessive moisture being the obvious culprit and usual suspect, lackadaisical property maintenance is the leading cause of mold and water damage. It is very common to see buildings and homes that are fifty, sixty and seventy years plus with the same plumbing systems in place as when the structure was built! We see roofing and window systems in complete disrepair and sprinkler systems that water the building more than the landscape.

The list goes on and on, but the result is the same: expensive repairs. We advise homeowners and landlords to inspect their properties a few times a year for defects and issues that can become major problems down the road. Often these small inspections cost very little and can save thousands. When it comes to mold, an ounce of prevention is truly worth a pound of cure.

Coronavirus and Mold Interaction

We know that mold is a biological contaminant that does not lead to the coronavirus and the coronavirus does not lead to mold. However, it is well documented that exposure to mold can lead to a compromised immune system And also can be deadly. It is also well documented that cold and flu viruses are more easily contracted when a person has a weak or compromised immune system. Since that is the case, it is very important now more than ever to make sure you and your loved ones are not exposed to mold or anything that can weaken their defenses against sickness.

During flu season, and especially in the presence of the coronavirus pandemic, make sure you call Superior Restoration & Remodeling to perform a complete mold testing in your home to be sure your residence is as healthy as possible. If a mold problem is found, it is also important to have mold removal performed as soon as possible to ensure a safe environment with good indoor air quality that can support healthy living.

How Is Mold Tested?

Many times mold is hidden behind structures such as walls, ceilings and ductwork. Mold produces a musty odor which may be the first indication of the problem. A visual mold inspection is the most important step in identifying a possible mold problem. Once the mold growth is discovered, testing devices such as moisture meters, humidity gauges, bore scopes and digital cameras can confirm the visual inspection and determine the source of leaks or moisture, and the conditions promoting mold growth.

Before performing any remediation (removal) of mold, the team at Superior Restoration and Remodeling will provide a detailed, written and cost-effective recommendation based on our testing and inspection.
