If there’s one thing you don’t want to see in your Ellicott City laundry room, it’s mold. With a little bit of moisture and some spores, you can have a colony growing in the dark and moist areas of your home.
What’s worse, is after suffering a flood or another natural disaster, you don’t only have to deal with restoring the damage from the flood, but you also need to work fast and be vigilant to prevent toxic black mold from overrunning your home and sickening your pets and loved ones.
If you spot mold in your home, or you’ve had past water damage and are looking to protect your family from the toxic effects of mold exposure, call Hatch & Son Contracting LLC today. We’re not only one of Maryland’s top natural disaster restoration companies, but we also are a full-spectrum professional mold remediation company.
What is Mold? Can Mold Exposure Make Me Sick?
Mold is the visible part of a fungal organism. It is the growth of small ‘hairy’ shoots on top of a ‘root’ system, called the mycelia.
Mold spores are everywhere—on food, in the soil, and in the air we breathe. But without the right conditions, mold doesn’t grow. So when you see it in your home, it means the following two things:
- Mold spores are rapidly reproducing in many areas of your home you cannot see
- The mold you can see is just the visible part of a much wider infestation (the mycelia)
So why is this such an issue? Well, it’s the purpose of your home to keep you protected from the elements. Almost every type of mold (and there are thousands that we know about) produces poisons called mycotoxins. And the entire history of human food preservation (canning, pickling, refrigeration) was developed in an attempt to keep food free of these dangerous poisons.
So imagine what those toxins might do when you breathe them in multiple times per day, every single day.
Mold overgrowth worsens asthma, triggers allergies, and can seriously sicken people with compromised immune systems or chronic health conditions. That’s why you need to call a mold remediation company at the first sign of mold infestation in your home!
