One of the most frequent problems that house and building owners have to deal with is mold removal. Mold damage can be very visible in your home. However, it can also cause serious health problems by spreading bacteria to your family. Mold refers to a wide variety of fungi, including Alternaria (penicillium), Fusarium (fusarium), Aspergillus and Mycoplasma. These fungi fall under the Order Pathogenic fungi. Their growth results in the destruction of living cells. Some of them can also survive without a host. However, they only live when there are living organisms such as Streptococcus and Echinococcus. These fungi can be spread by mold spores.
Mildew, also known by mold, can trigger asthma attacks and allergic reactions. It is essential to have mold remediation done immediately after an allergic reaction. Mold growth can be removed to reduce allergies and prevent asthma attacks. For people suffering from allergies, mold remediation could be the difference between life or death.
In addition to its negative effects, mold can also cause structural damage through microscopic cracks. These small cracks can allow moisture to seep in to the wall structure, leading to bacterial growth, mildew and mold. These may all require prompt mold remediation and mold cleaning. If mold cleaning and removal is not done properly, you run the risk of severe structural damage that could prove fatal to your loved ones.
