Mold is a visible plaque formed by microscopic fungi. They are ubiquitous: they can grow on any materials and in any condition. Mold appears not only on the surface of objects but also penetrates the threads of the mycelium inside them, so it will not always be easy to get rid of it.

Most often, mold you can face in an apartment is of the following types:

  • White mold loves flowerpots, wood, bread, and other foods.
  • Green mold prefers food.
  • Blue. It appears on wooden surfaces, giving them a blue hue. It may affect furniture, parquet, or window frames.
  • Black mold. The most vicious type of fungus thrives everywhere, from paper wallpaper in the bedroom to tile in the bathroom.

Why does mold appear?

Mold begins to multiply when it gets into a suitable environment:

  • Humidity. The ideal level for humidity is 60-80%.
  • Temperature. Mold survives at both low and high temperatures. The most favorable interval is from 40°F to 70°F.
  • Ventilation. Closed windows, piles of furniture, and scattered things - it is difficult for the air to circulate in the room. It becomes more accessible for the fungus to multiply.

How can you understand that mold has already appeared? Our Arlington, TX specialists in mold removal have expertise and experience that state: first, you can detect mold by sharp, damp, and specific odor. In the future, the fungus gives itself out with the corresponding plaque spots.

Why do you need to call a mold remediation company to get rid of mold?

Unfortunately, many do not realize the extent of the harm that mold can cause, believing that it spoils only the aesthetic appearance of the room. It is fundamentally wrong - mold is hazardous for building materials and, most importantly, human health. Inhalation of spores can be dangerous to health. Therefore, if you touch or approach the mold, you can inhale the fungus spores into the lungs.

Professionals take safety precautions with mold removal:

  • Professionals will ask you to leave the room during processing and they will even put on personal protective equipment. Before processing the room, they will wear special glasses, gloves, a respirator, and a protective suit.
  • When working with affected objects, they will be cautious not to spread mold spores throughout the house.
  • To destroy the mold fungi that have already appeared from the surfaces, they use various disinfectants suitable for your conditions and the existing mold. All these tools have a set of documents, including approved instructions for use, certificates, and a safety declaration.

When carrying out professional treatment, you will need to leave the house, after it - to ventilate. You can stay indoors after the treated surfaces have completely dried. The technician will give you specific instructions.

Indoor Mold Endangers Your Health

The experts from our mold removal team are constantly alerting customers in Arlington that mold adapts to many conditions. It grows much deeper than visible surfaces, and simple cleaning will not be enough. That is why it is necessary to understand why mold appeared on the walls. In almost all cases, it is because there is excess moisture indoors feeding the mold, and this will need to be eliminated.

In addition to aesthetic inconveniences and damage to things, it can be dangerous to health: fungal spores are so tiny that they easily enter the body through the lungs when inhaled and then produce toxins. As a result, a person and even an animal can develop asthma or pneumonia.
