Long Island Mold Damage Services
Mold in the home or business is a concern and if it doesn’t get treated by a mold damage company like United Water Restoration Long Island, it can be dangerous. Hazardous mold growth can seriously damage your property and prolonged exposure can cause adverse health effects. Inhaling or touching mold spores can be especially harmful to children and adults with respiratory issues or allergies.
Mold can grow on any indoor surface where there is warmth, excess moisture, and minimal air flow. The longer it goes untreated, the larger the problem it can become. It’s critical to mitigate and repair mold damage as quickly as possible. If you suspect mold or discover it, immediately contact United, your local Long Island mold damage restoration company.
How to Spot Mold Damage
Mold can sometimes be identified with the naked eye and by the musty odor it gives off. Unfortunately, visible surface molds and those detectable odors can be just the tip of the iceberg. More troubling is the mold you can’t see because it’s growing behind the drywall, under wallpaper, or beneath your rugs and flooring.
Flooding, leaky roofs, hidden leaks, and plumbing problems can all lead to mold from water. Even small leaks, if ignored, can become an issue and lead to potential mold damage repairs. Crawl spaces, attics, basements, cellars, and underneath sinks are common areas for microbial growth. HVAC air ducts and air conditioner units are also potential hot spots.
