Where Can Mold Be Found in the Home?

Mold is a fungus that grows by digesting plants and animal matter. The mold spores present in households are lightweight and easily travel through the air. In fact, mold grows very quickly in moist, dark spaces in the home such as basements and bathrooms.

Bottom line:

Mold is present everywhere but the mold we experience daily is rarely harmful. However, those suffering from mold allergies need to live in areas where there’s very little mold exposure.

If your home can be described as a damp, warm, and humid environment, you most likely have a major mold problem on your hand.

What are the most common types of mold discovered in the home?

The most common household molds are Cladosporium, Pencillium, Altenaria, Aspergillus and Stachybotrys Chartarum (Stachybotrys atra/black mold).

Not all mold spores are visible to the naked eye. Mold spores can even survive in driest and harshest areas of the home.

Once mold spores have enough moisture present in an environment they will grow rapidly.

Mold Remediation services should be considered for treating moist areas in the home, prone for mold growth.

Here are common areas where mold can develop in your household:

  • Drywall
  • Ceiling tiles
  • Carpets
  • Furniture
  • Roofing
  • Ductwork
  • Areas around plumbing pipe

Chesapeake Environmental Cleaning Systems, LLC is here to inspect your home for any potential areas where mold growth is possible. Once we identify the mold prone areas, we will eliminate moisture sources and permanently remove mold from your home.

Once mold remediation services are completed, Chesapeake Environmental Cleaning Systems, LLC recommends the following mold growth prevention measurements:

  • Use an air dehumidifier to prevent moisture buildup.
  • Never place carpet in a humid basement or bathroom.
  • Add mold inhibitors to your household paints.
  • Use a bathroom fan for showering/bathing.
  • Apply insulation to windows, piping, roofing and flooring to prevent condensation on cold surfaces.

The Effects Mold Can Have On Your Body

Mold can not only have a negative effect on your home, but also your health. Researchers have linked mold to several health issues, including asthma, fatigue, vomiting, disorientation, and more.

This week, we are going to take a more in depth look at how mold affects different systems in the body, from the respiratory system to the nervous system and everything in between.

  1. Mold and the Respiratory System: Comprised of your nose, mouth, lungs, trachea, and esophagus, the respiratory system is very sensitive to mold. Mold can cause sneezing, excess mucous production, stuffy sinusitis, bleeding of the lungs and nose, and more.
  2. Mold and the Nervous System: Comprised of the brain, spinal cord, and nerves, the nervous system can also be affected by mold. Mold can cause memory loss, tremors, numbness, as well as personality changes.
  3. Mold and the Vascular System: Comprised of the heart, blood, and blood vessels, the vascular system is responsible for pumping blood throughout the body. And overexposure to mold can cause an infection of this system.
  4. Mold and the Skin: The largest organ of the human body, skin reacts very differently to mold from person to person. Symptoms can range from itching and swelling to rashes, swelling, and more.

Mold Removal Is Not A DIY Job

Do you suspect your home or business has mold? Are you planning to remove the mold on your own?

Think again. Mold remediation is not a do-it-yourself job. If you don’t know how to isolate mold before you disturb it, you should hire Chesapeake Environmental Cleaning Systems, LLC.

Anytime you disturb mold, from cutting to cleaning mold, you give mold spores the opportunity to  expand throughout your home and create new colonies and new mold problems.
Our professional mold remediation services will ensure mold containment and the proper use of mold removal equipment to remove and permanently prevent mold growth in the home.

Our Chesapeake Environmental Cleaning Systems, LLC staff are certified mold remediation/ mold removal specialists. With us you can rest assure that your mold removal won’t be an amateur job.

Chesapeake Environmental Cleaning Systems, LLC provides mold testing, mold removal and mold remediation services. We are your one stop shop for addressing mold problems. Let us save you time and money anytime you have a problem that jeopardizes your business or home integrity.

How will you know if we removed your mold?

You can identify whether mold removal has been completed in two ways.

1.  You can see that mold is gone. The only exception to the visible mold test is hidden mold colonies and mold spores that travel through the air.

2. Third party test. This is the best way to confirm successful mold removal because there’s no conflict of interest. In any mold situation the following should be performed:

– A mold spore test
– A protocol of how the mold will be removed.
– A clearance test for the mold removal

It is important to follow through with all these instructions because the mold spore count needs to be at a safe level.

Mold spores are present indoors and outdoors.

Your goal is  to control your environment to prevent mold spores from developing into mold problems.

Remember mold spores need some form of moisture to start developing.

Let us help you control your mold growth.

On average it takes 1 to 5 days for mold remediation to be completed.

Anytime you spot water in your home or business, clean it up within the first 24 to 48 hours.

Mold can cause health problems such as:

– Allergens
– Skin Rash
– Asthma and other respiratory issues.

When you believe you have been exposed to mold, consult a health physician.

From ceiling to floor, we will examine your indoor environment for mold.

How to Stop Mold Growth

How does Mold Spread?

You know mold is bad. But do you know just how bad? Mold has the ability to quickly spread throughout your home, infecting every nook and cranny. How? Mold spores. These tiny spores, ranging in size from 1 – 20 microns, are easily carried by air currents in your home. And when these spores land in places with favorable conditions, with sufficient moisture and humidity, you will see mold growth.

How to stop Mold Growth

Mold growth occurs inside when mold spores land on a surface with enough moisture to support their growth.

  1. Address the Issue: What caused the mold? Is the roof leaking? Is a pipe leaking? Before you can ever hope to rid your home of mold and stop mold growth, you must first correct the underlying issue.
  2. Reduce Humidity: Mold needs humid conditions to grow. ASHRAE recommends keeping relative humidity between 30 – 60% to prevent mold growth.
  3. Exhaust Excess Humidity: Sometimes, it is impossible to prevent humid conditions, like in the bathroom or kitchen. In these areas, it is important to vent the humidity outside using an exhaust fan.
  4. Act Quickly: If you experience flooding or a plumbing issue, be sure to remove standing water as soon as possible. Then pick up the phone and call your local Baltimore mold remediation company.
  5. Mold Remediation Baltimore: If you have a mold problem in your home or business, it is best to address the issue quickly to minimize the chances it spreads. So pick up the phone and call Chesapeake Environmental Cleaning Systems. We employ only the most qualified mold remediators. Not only have they undergone extensive training, but they also use state-of-the-art equipment to save time and efficiently remediate your mold problem.
