3 Reasons Household Mold Remediation Is Important, St. Augustine, Florida

Are your family members experiencing chronic coughing, increased allergies, or skin rashes? Tiny spores of brown, black, or dark green mold may be residing in your home. Thankfully, if you find this fast-growing fungus in or around your walls and ceilings, household mold remediation can eliminate dangerous levels of toxins and restore your home’s environment to a healthy state.

SERVPRO of Greater St. Augustine / St. Augustine Beach is the Old City’s most reliable provider of residential restoration services. As the area’s mold remediation experts, they explain the top reasons why it is important to control spore outbreaks. 

3 Reasons Home Mold Remediation Is Essential

1. Protect Your Family’s Health 

Mold will make your family sick. Children and seniors are particularly vulnerable to headaches, fatigue, high body temperature, trouble breathing, and sinus congestion. People with asthma and other respiratory illnesses are also at risk for developing breathing complications when mold sets in. Keep every member of the household safe by remediating spores as soon as you find them. 

2. Keep Your Structure Sound 

mold remediationThe humid Florida weather is a prime breeding ground for mold, which is often found in vents, HVAC systems, and around windows. The black variety can creep into porous walls and ceilings and live on wood and insulation. Over time, it can damage your house’s structural supports. Mold remediation is affordable and can save you from paying for costly home repairs. 

3. Prevent the Spread of Fungus 

The CDC says mold is a quick-spreading fungus. This means mold living in your kitchen, bathroom, or bedroom can pass to your wallpaper, carpet, upholstery, and furniture faster than you might think. Calling for mold remediation at the first sign of spores is the best way to protect your interior investments.
