Many people don’t realize that there might be unseen elements in their home causing their family to get sick. This problem can lurk in the least suspecting locations: the basement, bathroom, and even the kitchen. Mold is the culprit, and it can begin to grow whenever there is leaking water or damp conditions. The best solution is to talk with a San Diego mold removal company to clean up the mess.

What Causes Mold Damage?

Mold damage can occur in any situation where there is water or dampness. When a leak or flood occurs, it is possible for mold to start growing within 48 hours, so it is important that you immediately take action to avoid bigger problems in the future.

Common causes of mold growth include:

  • Leaky pipes
  • Spilled water
  • Flooding
  • Bad carpet cleaning
  • Faulty appliances
  • Frozen pipes
  • Fish tanks
  • Waterbeds
  • Damp bathrooms or basements

If you notice that an area of your home is constantly damp or there is a leak, make sure that you clean up the problem as quickly as possible. Drying out the area can prevent mold growth.

Health Problems from Mold Contamination

Even though mold might seem like a small problem, it is possible that mold contamination can lead to major health problems. Ongoing exposure can cause serious issues such as joint and muscle pain, respiratory issues, depression, anxiety, headaches, visual problems, fatigue, digestive problems, and fertility issues.

In many situations, these symptoms are confused with other health problems and the doctors don’t realize that the symptoms are caused by mold exposure.

Talking with a Professional Mold Restoration Company

Mold growth causes unseen spores to be released into the air, and these problems are completely invisible to the naked eye. So, don’t make the mistake of trying to clean up mold problems on your own, because you don’t have the tools or skills that are needed to properly clean up the area and prevent future problems.
