Mold is an important part of our ecosystem. It plays a vital role in the decomposition of organic matter. It is responsible for keeping our forests healthy by consuming fallen and dead trees. It is often referred to as “nature’s janitor” for this reason. Mold has also played an important role in medicine. The development of Penicillin has helped millions of people overcome illness and infection.
But, despite the positive role mold plays in the environment and the importance it has had in medical world, it is not desirable in an indoor environment. When mold occurs indoors, there are no benefits. In fact, mold can actually aggravate asthma and trigger allergic reactions in some individuals. If left untreated, mold growth can jeopardize the structural integrity of building materials and in some cases, exacerbate serious health problems. This is why mold remediation is best left to a professional.
There are numerous reasons for why mold growth may occur within a building structure. Some reasons are: roof leaks, leaking pipes, improper window installation, or water intrusion through a foundation. Many people have experienced one or more of these problems, and in fact, some may not be aware of it.
