Mold and Mildew are problematic for homes and structures. Both can cause serious physical reactions in people, but of the two, Mold is considered to be the more serious problem because it usually covers a larger area of the structure, and in addition to causing severe symptoms in some people it can cause damage to the structure of the home or building.
Mold is caused when moisture is trapped in an area that doesn’t get proper ventilation. After a fire, for example, when the fire department has indiscriminately drenched your home in water, it is very easy for mold to start to appear, especially in areas that are not readily accessible. Another common cause of mold is a pipe bursting. The nature of these sources means that you don’t always see it when mold starts to grow in your house after an event such as a fire.
Mold in a home or business can affect both the structure and the people in it in a variety of ways. The most common reactions to mold are those resembling allergic reactions, like red eyes, runny nose, or even asthma attacks, and irritation of the throat. For those who have existing respiratory problems these symptoms can include even more serious conditions such as difficulty breathing. Also, mold can compromise the integrity of the structure that it is on because it feeds off of the wood, wall, or insulation. It can also damage property such as carpet, dressers, and cabinets.
