Mold & You In Elkhart County

1/3/2019 (Permalink)

Health concerns may arise when excessive mold grows indoors. Molds are found in every environment, and mold spores reproduce rapidly when moisture is present. An Institute of Medicine study found excessive dampness indoors encourages the growth of molds and other organisms, causing a public health problem. The EPA advised that the potential health concerns from molds are an important reason to prevent moisture problems leading to mold growth. It is especially important to clean up existing indoor mold growth to increase property appeal and retain its value. If a property has experienced a water intrusion, your SERVPRO Franchise Professional can inspect the damage to see whether moisture has penetrate materials or is allowing mold growth. However, anyone may experience health problems associated with exposure to mold in damp buildings. 

If you feel that you have an issue with mold, feel free to give SERVPRO of South Elkhart County a call and we can come take a look.
