Mold is dangerous to your health, and in some cases, life threatening. There are different kinds of molds, but some commonly found in homes are Cladosporium, Penicillium, Aspergillus and Stachybotrys Chartarum, also known as “black” mold. Mold tend to grow in dampness, so bathrooms and basements are natural places that they favor. Any part of the home is likely to provide a hospital locale for growth if following a natural disaster that permitted rain and moisture to come inside the house.
The people who suffer most from living in a home where mold exists are those who with asthsma or allergies, who have weakened immune systems, the elderly, the very young, as well as those with COPD, Emphysema and chronic Bronchitis. People who are allergic to mold often develop any number of symptoms, including coughing, wheezing, rashes, fatigue, sneezing, headaches, nausea, and irritation of the eyes, nose, or throat. Fatigue is also a commonly reported symptom. Generally speaking, the longer people sensitive to mold are around mold spores, the more aggravated becomes their condition.

A qualified Providence Mold Remediation firm will test your air quality, and inspect for and test any visible evidence of mold.

Small areas of mold can be taken care of by the homeowner by simply spraying the mold with a solution of bleach and water, and wiping up the mold after it does. Larger areas need professional help, particularly when the mold has penetrated to your duct work. One of the best tools a professional mold remediator has to offer is that of dry ice cleaning. It works much like power-washing, only it shoots small pellets of dry ice at the mold, cleaning the surface instantly upon which the mold was living. Dry ice remediation is much faster than washing and scraping, and can reach small areas that were otherwise impractical to clean, such as tiny crevices and around the edge of each little nail. Once the mold is removed, it can be disuaded to return by simply installing dehumidifiers and fans to keep the air dry and moving in the areas where the mold liked to form.
