Mold: What you need to know
Molds are a type of fungus that grow in the form of multicellular filaments, ranging in different forms and level of hazard. With that being said, mold can seriously affect people's health at any age. People most susceptible to mold are people with compromised health, infants, young children, people with chronic breathing issues such as asthma and allergies, and the elderly. Thusly, mold can cause health effects. Mold lingers for an excessive amount of time. Additionally, mold spores can be easily transferred from one location to another location or person. So if you are aware of mold being present, then we are “Here to help.” Mold spores spread and grow rapidly, so if you visibly see mold give us a call right away. Mold can grow in areas of the property that are wet and aren’t properly dried. This part is essential and it is why using a professional with proper personal protective equipment is a good idea. With cases of serious mold, it could be to the point where the materials have to be removed altogether to remove the spores and mold particles. If you would like air samples taken or mold removal done, call SERVPRO of Des Moines East & SW to do the job.
