The Dangers of Mold

A simple pipe leak can create catastrophic damage in your home not to mention mold growth.

Leaking pipes, large or small, can cause a whole host of problems, including the development of mildew and mold from water damage. Undetected leaks and standing water are a primary cause of moisture build up behind walls, ceilings, windows and flooring, leading to product deterioration and mold infestation.

The Dangers of Mold

Molds, while very dangerous, are very common in buildings and homes. Mold will grow in a high moisture environment especially around leaks in roofs, pipes especially hidden or low traffic areas, windows and specifically where there has been flooding and can grow just about anywhere including dust, drywall, tiles and paint. Unbeknownst to a homeowner, many building materials provide perfect nutrients that encourage mold to grow. Wet cellulose materials like paper and wood products create a perfect home and breeding ground for mold. And something as seemingly minor as a drop leak in a window sill, if left unattended, can create a mold infestation.

So, a basic fact of a mold infestation is that it can be seen and smelled. If your home has water stains, discoloration on support surfaces like walls, floors and ceilings, bubbling paint or wallpaper, then you are likely dealing with a leak, and in turn, a mold problem. Mold will have a very musty and damp smell. Anywhere with old, sitting water will create a similar odor. If you are experiencing an odor that you are not used to, this is the time to have a plumber check it out.

Exposure to damp or moldy environments can cause a variety of health dangers. While some individuals can be asymptomatic, a vast majority of people will have a reaction such as sneezing, itchy watery eyes and as extreme as asthma and there is sufficient evidence that takes these health conditions much further. So, now that you have a fairly good idea that you have a mold problem, what do you do?

Timing is crucial with leak detection and mold. Immediate action is needed. The faster you act, the faster your leak and resulting mold infestation can be identified and fixed. This is a problem that will not ever fix itself, high quality, expert technicians are your greatest resource.
