Mold is a serious health risk.
Mold is a catch-all term that applies to any of hundreds of types of fungi that can grow in the right conditions. Mold types range from those that cause slight irritation to those that can be deadly. Mold can and does cause wheezing, coughs, respiratory tract infection, and hypersensitivity pneumonitis, according to the Institute of Medicine. While mold is a health risk to anyone, it is especially dangerous to the sick, elderly, and to children.
Mold lowers property value and can cause extensive damage.
Mold can grow in any environment that is relatively warm and damp. Mold often starts in kitchens, bathrooms, and laundry facilities, and can quickly spread throughout a property. Mold grows quickly on drywall, carpet padding, insulation, and wooden framework. Without proper prevention and maintenance, mold can quickly spread throughout a building’s walls, attics, crawl spaces, and basements. Mold can lower a property’s value by more than 10%, and can easily cause thousands of dollars in damage in a short period of time.
