Mold Removal: Why Waiting Is Never A Good Idea

Mold is very common in both indoor and outdoor environments. While we can’t control the outdoors, our team always recommends mold removal for indoor spaces. By ignoring mold growth, even in the smallest amounts, you could face adverse health concerns and structural damages.

As experts in the industry, our team far too often sees the presence of mold taken lightly. So, we’re here to let you know why you should call in a team of experienced, trusted professionals at the first signs of mold.


Exposure can lead to various adverse health issues.

With thousands of mold species, it’s nearly impossible to list the myriad of adverse health issues that come with an onset of mold growth. However, below are some of the most common ailments:


  • Coughing, wheezing, and sneezing
  • Throat irritation
  • Allergies
  • Asthma
  • Weakened immune system
  • Stomach pain
  • Muscle cramping
  • Toxic mold disease that is associated with long-term exposure to black mold.


Ignored, you may face costly structural repair needs.

Whether water enters your home through the attic or foundation, left unattended, you could face costly repairs. For instance,  if you compare the structure’s foundation to your backbone, you can imagine the potential dangers to its integrity once compromised. Likewise, watering entering from the roof can travel down walls, into windows and even the foundation – wreaking havoc along the way.



No matter the age of your home or commercial spaces, there is always a chance that mold can exist. This is especially true for environments that have experienced flood damage or water seepage. Remember, the smallest introduction of water can result in an infestation.


While many species of molds are harmless, some may lead to various health issues. Thus, mold removal by a team of professionals is always the safest path.
