While most homeowners know that mold is an unsightly problem, making even the nicest home look dirty, it’s more hazardous than most people believe. The mold remediation team at FloodCo have helped homeowners across Flathead Valley and northwest Montana restore their home with timely water damage repairs. Their staff explains why mold remediation is important and how leaving mold unaddressed can impact your family’s health and your home’s value.
How Does Mold Affect Your Health?
As mold grows, it releases spores into the air that you and your family breathe in anytime you’re inside. While some people may not be affected by the spores, others can experience severe throat irritation, allergies, rashes, and even autoimmune diseases that can change how you live your life. When allowed to grow unchecked, these health problems can worsen and the mold can spread throughout your home, leaving you without a safe place to escape the spores.
Does Mold Affect Your Home’s Value?
Once the mold starts growing, it doesn’t take long for it to spread, especially if it’s is caused by a slow leak or excessive moisture buildup inside your home. Mold is often a side effect of a larger problem and can indicate worse damage to your underlying structure. Because of concerns about the health risks and possible structural damage, an infestation can severely impact your home’s property value and requires professional mold remediation to fix.
Eliminating the mold is only the first step in restoring your home’s property value. At FloodCo, their water damage experts will perform a full assessment of your property, identifying the cause of the mold infestation. Once the problem is found, their team will work with you to fix the water damage and get rid of mold so you can go back to enjoying your home.
