Mold Testing & Remediation in Grand Rapids
Though mold begins as a small spore, it can become an incredibly destructive force and create serious health concerns for those living in close proximity. Whether you live in a house in Grand Rapids prone to humidity or not, your home can still fall victim to mold and the havoc it can wreak.
How Does it Occur?
Mold can occur due to a variety of reasons: a broken pipe, a leak, storm damage, an overly humid bathroom, the aftermath of a fire, a flood and other unavoidable events. Regardless of the cause, all mold needs to grow and thrive is a damp environment, a dark space, and organic material to eat such as drywall, paper, and wood. Mold can live in a variety of climates, but the temperatures of a typical Grand Rapids home makes a comfortable living space for these microorganisms.
What Does it Cause?
Unfortunately, if mold is not completely eradicated, it will continue to grow within your walls and under your floorboards and will eat away at the structures of your home, filling the air with toxins. Though mold can seem harmless, it can actually weaken the structure of your home, causing your home to no longer have the structural integrity that it once had. Also, multiple studies have shown that constant exposure to some molds can lead to allergies and respiratory issues and even serious conditions that can result in death. Mold isn’t a microorganism to mess with!
