Knoxville TN Mold Removal And Remediation
According to some recent studies, approximately 50 percent of homes are afflicted with unknown moisture dilemmas causing mold damage. And as we all know, molds thrive best in moist places. Acute exposure not lasting more than a day may lead to normal allergic reactions, but chronic exposure in your home may lead to bronchitis, pneumonia, pulmonary edema, chronic pneumonitis. Some studies suggest cancer, but no proof has been given.
Mold requires an organic food source, such as cloth, sheet rock, or wood, and a moisture source to grow. Mold can begin to grow if any organic material remains wet for more than 48 hours. The way to control mold growth indoors is to control moisture indoors.
Mold spores are very common outdoors and there is no practical way to eliminate all mold spores indoors. Molds can grow undetected inside wall spaces, under carpet, and inside HVAC systems. Mold growth can often be the visible sign of a structural defect that allows moisture to intrude into a building.
Cleanup of large areas of mold growth can cause airborne levels of spores to increase up to 10,000 times that of background levels.
The best way to abate mold growth indoors is to remove the impacted materials. Cleaning the surface of a material with mold growth may not always kill the mold, especially if mold is growing on porous materials like sheet rock or carpeting. Professional mold removal is the way to keep your family safe.
