Causes of Mold Growth

Did you know that mold growth occurs naturally? Mold plays a vital part in our environment because it breaks down and digests organic materials. Although mold is present in significant quantities outdoors, it can be a problem when found growing in cramped spaces indoors. Mold inside your home can be problematic because it begins to erode your home or business’s integral structural components.

Mold damage is often the result of a water leak, high humidity, or recent water damage. Mold requires moisture to grow, and it can be one of the first indications that water damage is present on your property.

These are the four signs to look for to identify the presence of excessive mold:
• Visible mold.
• Musty odors.
• Past moisture problems.
• Extremely humid environment.

If you notice or suspect mold growth on your Houston property, have an ER Contracting professional check for mold growth and any water damage signs. If mold is detected, we can help advise you about its cause and create an action plan to safely and thoroughly remove the mold damage.

The experts at ER Contracting are trained in the proper handling of mold spores. It’s always best to consult with a professional before disturbing any mold found in your home. When mold is disturbed, the spores become airborne, increasing the density of mold in the air and increasing the risk of inhalation. Without the correct protective equipment, there is a considerable risk of inhaling mold and suffering from associated adverse health consequences.

Because mold growth is not always visible, it’s essential to enlist a mold remediation professional who can locate the mold’s source and provide a safe remediation plan to remove the mold from your property. If you believe you may have mold in your home or business, give us a call today, and we will have one of our certified professionals inspect your property.
