Contact A Mold Removal Company In Independence When Water Damage Has Occurred

8/12/2020 (Permalink)

Mold can develop because of a leak in the roof, plumbing, foundation, or inadequate ventilation in an area. Mold can develop within 48-72 hours after a water event has occurred. There are over 100,000 different types of mold in the world that reproduce and feeds on organic matter. When the mold becomes dry, millions of spores can be released into the air. Moisture level, temperature, and stagnant air will improve the chances of mold growth. At the first sign of this fungus, contact a Mold Removal Company in Independence before it becomes worse.

When the mold is not removed quickly, it can stain and damage walls, floors, clothing, drapes, and any other item it grows on. The foul smell that is released when a mold is present can be difficult to remove with the experience of a Mold Removal Company in Independence.

The main thing that must occur before mold removal takes place is to eliminate the water source that’s increasing the moisture. All areas around where the mold is visible should be inspected. After a flood, mold can grow behind drywall, in carpets, and behind the drapes. The contaminated area will need to be isolated so mold spores can’t travel to other areas of a building. Wet, damp or moldy items will need to be properly bagged and removed. If the cause of the mold is a leaking roof, the insulation in the attic may need to be removed and replaced.

Mold removal and disinfecting of the area should only be performed by an experienced mold removal company. Failure to follow proper procedures could lead to mold spreading throughout the home through the air.
