The Survival Story of Mold
You may have a problem area on your property where mold growth seems to be a constant problem, and you've probably tried time after time to get rid of it. Unfortunately, mold is a truly persistent intruder, even if you've tried multiple ways to get rid of it. It can be especially problematic where you've had water damage. Bleach won't solve the problem, and you can't just paint over it.
An Insistent Intruder
Why does it keep coming back?
- It thrives in areas of high humidity.
- It establishes a firm foundation before you notice it's there.
- Spores are ejected and spread over great distances to ensure survival.
- There are plenty of dark corners to host new colonies.
Mold isn't like other stains that can be wiped up. It can't be mended like a hole in the wall. Even though the results of mold growth include stains and damage to walls and other parts of the property, mold itself is a living organism. The proper treatment of this intruder requires a different approach.
Microscopic spores can be carried through the air, hitch a ride on clothing, or travel through heating and air conditioning systems. This means the spores can find suitable environments in places where you aren't likely to look and in spaces you can't reach. This is one of the primary reasons that mold returns after you've cleaned it. You've probably only treated a small portion of the problem. Once your soap or cleansers have worn off, new growth can make itself at home.
The best way to avoid treating the same problem over and over again is to hire mold cleanup and remediation professionals to tackle the problem. These technicians have the training, equipment, and chemicals necessary to completely remove existing mold and prevent future outbreaks.
