Protecting Your Home From Mold - Why Are Molds A Concern?
It is common to find mold spores in the air inside your home, and on most surfaces
including clothes, walls and furniture. Most of the time mold spores found inside come
from outside sources. Routine cleaning of your home helps keep these levels low.
The level of concern greatly increases when there are large amounts
of mold in your home. Mold problems most likely will occur if there has been
an on-going water leak, a flood, or very high levels of humidity in the home. Unchecked
mold growth can cause damage to the structural elements in your home. There is no
practical way to eliminate all mold and mold spores indoors, keeping your home clean
and dry can prevent extensive mold growth and its damage.
