Mold is part of the natural environment. Outdoors, molds play a part in nature by breaking down dead organic matter such as fallen leaves and dead trees; indoors, however, mold growth should be avoided. Although winter is generally dry and cold in New Jersey, mold in the home is still a threat during these months. Freezing and thawing pipes, moisture buildup in heating systems, and flooding from snowmelt can all cause mold growth.
There are many types of mold, but all require moisture for growth. Molds reproduce by means of tiny spores. The spores are invisible to the naked eye and float through the air, so entrance to your home is relatively easy. Spores get through open doorways and windows and can be sucked in through HVAC systems. Mold spores can begin growing indoors when the microscopic spores land on moist surfaces.
Pathogend of New Jersey: Trained, Trusted Professional Experts in Mold Remediation
The Pathogend of New Jersey team understands the science behind mold and mold growth. Since mold spores thrive on water, the source of the water needs to be completely repaired prior to starting the remediation process. Time is of the essence; it takes as little as 48 hours before the mold spores form colonies. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants that can potentially create havoc on the health of you and your family. Additionally, mold damage can be detrimental to the foundation of your home. If not addressed quickly, home repair costs can easily skyrocket. With the flooding we’ve had in New Jersey this fall, it is especially important to stay on top of the potential mold problem looming in your office or home.
Mold can and will return unless the moisture source is resolved. Once the source of the mold has been removed, the Pathogend of New Jersey team will come in and complete your mold remediation. Dangerous mold spores need to be effectively killed in order for your home to be safe.
