Is mold turning your indoor spaces into potential health hazards? While everything may seem fine, mold is a problem that becomes more severe with time, hence the need for routine maintenance checks with a professional mold removal service. At the onset, household mold can be difficult to detect but even difficult to contain once it gets out of hand. If you suspect mold in your premises, check dingy and dark areas, such as the attic, basement, or places susceptible to leaks. It only takes 24 hours for mold to grow, so prevention is the best solution.

The Remediation Team leverages cutting-edge tools and equipment to pinpoint the affected area or any potentially failing parts in your plumbing that poses a risk to your well-being. Our technicians have extensive industry experience and skill in checking for the smallest signs of mold and mildew growth before recommending a course of action. Here are some common types of household mold you need to familiarize yourself with to ensure they don’t wreak havoc in your building.

Penicillium

This mold is allergenic and is found practically anywhere the conditions are favorable. Aside from the allergenic factor, Penicillium is also the source of a lifesaving drug, but when it grows in your building, it can lead to severe health complications. It is a bluish-green mold that releases spores into the air, triggering heart inflammation and asthma. If you detect such a substance growing on your premises, you need to have a remediation expert perform mold removal to alleviate the risk of health hazards.

Mucor

Like Penicillium, this type of mold is also allergenic; however, one specific type is toxigenic. Places with sufficient water or moisture content like the soil can be ideal for the growth of this type of mold. We use dehumidifiers and other industry standard equipment to maintain dry surfaces, keeping mold problems at bay. Mucor can also creep up in indoor spaces, so keep watch of areas susceptible to water damage like wet mattresses and carpets.

Aspergillus

Aspergillus is practically one of the commonly found types of mold in households. These pathogenic fungi may not pose an instant threat, but they can be lethal to those with pre-existing conditions affecting their immune system. While the mold usually grows in any area with moisture, it can also be found in HVAC systems. Regular maintenance checks are vital to maintaining a safe indoor space if someone is suffering from a severe health condition.

Stachybotrys

This is commonly referred to as black mold and is among the toxigenic varieties you are advised to avoid. Like most household molds, Stachybotrys thrives if damp and dark conditions, especially in your ventilation systems. It forms black patches on surfaces where they grow and are responsible for the deterioration of air quality in your homes. When you detect black patches on surfaces around your home, the first call should be professional to prevent subsequent damage and safety hazards.

These are some types of mold in homes that you need to look out for if you want a safe and cozy ambiance. Contact us at The Remediation Team and schedule mold removal and remediation services with our team of experts.
