Mold ? The Silent Destroyer

Posted by steve7876 on April 24th, 2017

A mold infestation is every homeowner’s nightmare – it is a silent monster, one that spreads through your home without you ever knowing about it. The worst mold problems are often the ones you cannot see. They happen inside floors, ceilings, ducts, and crawl spaces. Airborne mold spores are invisible to the eye. They are so light they are almost undetectable and they are easily carried in air current movements. Your heating/cooling system carries these spores from room to room, contaminating each room in your house from just one spot.

Mold needs moisture to grow. It will multiply as its eats your home building materials and personal possessions. This moisture will come from roof leaks, siding leaks, and plumbing leaks – even out of control humidifiers. You would think that if mold spores colonies run out of moisture they would die, but they don’t. Mold growth colonies without moisture lie dormant, they can wait millions of years for access to a water intrusion for the humidity that they need. Even dormant mold can make mold-sensitive people very ill.

Mold grows everywhere indoors and in wet and damp areas, including wallpaper, ceiling tiles, carpets, insulation, wood and drywall. A Calgary mold removal service like Phoenix Restoration can help keep your family healthy and increase your home value.

At Phoenix we are able to test the air from each room in your home, as well as the outward air flow from your heating/cooling registers for the possible presence of elevated levels of airborne mold.

Have your home checked for mold if you have ever had:

  • Roof leak
  • Plumbing leak
  • Flood
  • Sewer Back-flow
  • Musty or moldy Odors
  • Over-watering Plants
  • Dripping Sink
  • Shower/Bath Overflow
  • Ceiling fans exhausted in attic

Any of these water intrusions are perfectly capable of breeding mold spores and mold colonies. People tend to think that because we have an arid climate that we are immune from mold infestations in Calgary, but we are not. Something as simple as over watered plants and a dripping sink is enough to cause a costly mold remediation job. Don’t let it get that far! For mold removal in Calgary, call the experienced team from Phoenix Restoration and start with trust.
