Mold can be destructive to your property and your health that is an insidious and often hidden problem for your home and business, and it can do more than just spread and be unsightly. If you’ve discovered the presence of mold inside your Louisville property, the last thing you’ll want to do is ignore it. Stopping water intrusions and moisture is crucial. Mold and mildew build up over time in damp areas. They are naturally occurring microorganisms that exist everywhere in our environment. If mold is not visible and obvious, a musty smell or the peeling, bubbling or discoloration of drywall and wallpaper can serve as warning signs. Left untreated, mold can impact the health of those exposed to it, especially those with allergies or asthma. Moreover, the longer mold sits on your property, the more damage it has the potential to cause. Mold spores can cause allergic reactions, asthma attacks, chronic sinus problems, poisoning by mycotoxins and fungal infections. The problems can extend to fatigue and depression.
One of the most common mold removal misconceptions is that “you can just clean it yourself”. But the truth is that it takes a professional to properly analyze the situation and find the source and type of mold. If you plan to clean up the mold yourself, you will want to research mold and methods of mold remediation. You will also want to research mold remediation companies if you plan to hire somebody. Mold tends to grow in damp areas but can grow anywhere.
Asbestos is most commonly found in older properties, and if left in good condition undisturbed, is not harmful. However, damage to buildings, such as a water or fire loss, can affect asbestos-containing materials and create a serious health hazard to the building’s residents. Asbestos can commonly be found in older building materials, such as:
Roof Shingles, Tiles, and Siding
Floor Tiles and Adhesives
Drywall or Joint Compound
Pipes, Furnaces or Attic Insulation
If you notice damage to the above, vacate the property immediately, avoid touching the materials, and call Blue River Restoration right away.
