What You Need to Know About Mold Remediation

It’s never a fun experience to find mold hidden in your home. There is always stress about where it came from and if you will be able to get it entirely removed without the risk of some being left behind. Our team at Atlantic Bay Contracting is here to help you by offering you a mold remediation service. 


But first, here is some information about mold and why it is crucial to take care of it as soon as it is spotted. 


What is mold? 

Mold is a type of fungus that grows in the forms of multicellular filaments, also known as hyphae. The hyphae produce the mold spores that we are familiar with and can be found outside and inside your home. Mold can be found in any spot that moisture and air meet, as these are the only two elements required for growth.


Why is mold considered dangerous?

Mold is considered to be dangerous for a variety of different reasons. Mold growth around your home can result in costly damage. If left untreated, the structure of your home can start to deteriorate, leading to irreversible damage. In addition, there are thousands of types of mold. While some are considered safe, others forms can be hazardous to you, family members, and pets.

Mold releases spores throughout the air of your home. Once the spores spread, they can lodge inside of air ducts. If this happens, not only will you need mold remediation, but you will also need a duct scrubbing to ensure the mold does not continue to harm your home. 


What is mold remediation?

Mold remediation is the process of ridding mold from your home. However, this process is different from a standard mold removal service from another company. Mold removal won’t eliminate all the problem as it only works with the source. On the other hand, Mold remediation is a multi-step process that will address the problem and allow for locating the source of the problem. In addition to this, remediation helps stop the mold from never appearing again.
