After water damage occurs in your home, mold can begin to grow as quickly as 24-48 hours afterward. That’s why it’s so important to address any water damage that happens in your home or business as soon as possible. Mold growth can cause the value of your property to drop, cause serious health problems, and can lead to increased damage over time. To keep mold from growing, the materials that were affected by the water damage need a replacement immediately. Prompt removal will prevent the spread of bacteria, viruses, and spores, which can pose long-term health risks to those exposed. If your property has had water damage recently or you think that mold might be growing in your St. Cloud, MN location, call A-1 Professional Cleaning for your mold remediation.
Mold exposure has the potential to cause severe health problems to those who are sensitive to it. For people who suffer from mold sensitivity, sore throat, nasal stuffiness, eye irritation, coughing or wheezing, and occasionally skin irritation may ensue from exposure. Those with mold allergies may have more extreme reactions. Individuals with compromised immune systems may develop chronic lung-illnesses.
Mold can be found in many places both indoors and out. All this fungus needs to grow is moisture, and humidity can be an aid to growth. Mold is not just a result of a flood that can be immediately identified and fixed. It can grow anywhere that has a significant amount of moisture and humidity such as a leak in a roof, window, or pipe. Mold likes to build on places like cardboard, paper products, ceiling tiles, and wood. Growth can also take place in wallpaper, paint, dust, insulation, drywall, carpet, fabric, and upholstery.
Fixing the leak, cleaning, and eliminating mold growth is not just difficult to do on your own, but also dangerous. A-1’s professionals will bring the latest equipment to collect mold spores and filter out the air. The team of professionals will be careful to ensure that cross-contamination doesn’t occur during the removal of materials like woodwork, flooring, walls, insulation, and structural beams. After the mold removal, the team will then begin the restoration process by replacing the materials that were contaminated. The installation includes new lumber, sheetrock, and insulation. The job is finished up with a paint job and new trim.
It is possible to remove mold with bleach, but it will take several treatments and time to eliminate it from your home or business. The chemicals it involves can cause illnesses to those who are using it. Without the proper equipment, you won’t honestly know if you’ve removed it all from the contaminated area. You also take a chance on corrupting the new materials while installing them. A-1 Cleaning sends a team of professionals that are specially trained to do the job. They come with the latest equipment to ensure that every bit of mold is removed from your home or business safely and they install the new materials while being careful not to contaminate them.
