Mold is not an issue to be taken lightly. Not only is it unsightly, but if it gets into your home or business, it can affect the long-term health of you, your family and your pets.

The presence of mold in a property can cause a range of unpleasant side effects and conditions, including headaches, all sorts of respiratory illnesses, cold and flu-like symptoms, and even depression and memory impairment. What’s more, those with asthma or allergies can see their symptoms worsen.

Mold can also cause serious structural damage to a building. That’s because mold weakens the structural integrity of materials such as wood, drywall and insulation by consuming the organic material they’re made of. This can cause walls, floors and ceilings to become soft and spongy, and therefore more susceptible to damage or collapse.

Likewise, it’s bad news when mold starts to grow on personal belongings and furniture. Wooden furniture, upholstery, photographs, documents, carpets, rugs and other soft furnishings are all very difficult or impossible to clean once mold has settled on them. If this mold is left unchecked, eventually they will break down and deteriorate.

Oftentimes, these materials have to be destroyed because the spores cannot be fully removed. Attempting to clean them is less cost-effective than buying replacements.

Of course, prevention is better than cure. Mold thrives in moist conditions, and colonies can begin to form in as little as 24 hours.

Therefore, if you’ve got moisture in your St Louis home, or you’ve experienced water damage due to a burst pipe, a roof leak or a bad thunderstorm, you’ll need to call a mold remediation contractor to protect yourself and your belongings from these hazards.
