What Causes Mold

Customers are frantic to know why the Southside Chicago mold damage developed on their property. They wonder if the mold was caused by some action that they performed. Well, the simple answer is yes. Most mold problems develop in response to the environment. The fact is that mold is a fungus. Our customers really get upset at that fact because they realize that a fungus might affect the health of those in the home. Here is something that is interesting to note. Mold spreads through tiny spores that are in the air. Mold develops in locations that lack light, but have high humidity. For example, a dark basement or an attic. Mold quickly develops in areas that are wet or contain leaks. For example, leaky pipes in the home might cause a mold outbreak. Even leaky faucets in the kitchen or bathroom might cause a mold infestation to take place. Mold requires food to survive, just like people. Therefore, the mold will attach to paper, fiberboard, wood, and other high cellulose material.

Some mold remediation companies might think it is unusual for us to give our customers advice about preventing future mold damage. The fact is that our customers are our main priority. We want to keep them happy and satisfied. Therefore, we give them tips on future mold prevention to protect their home and family. Our top tip to prevent mold is to be vigilant. Mold requires darkness, warmth, and moisture to develop and grow. Check the home regularly for things that encourage mold development. For example, leaky pipes in a dark basement, leaky roof tops, poorly ventilated areas, flooded areas, damp basements, damp foundations. Correct those problems immediately to prevent mold damage to the area.
