How Do I Get Mold In My Home?
Mold becomes a problem inside a home or business when there's excessive humidity or moisture for an extended period of time. The problem can originate from sudden water releases, like a burst pipe or large spill that goes untreated, or from a chronic condition, such as a leaking roof or plumbing. High humidity or warm, moist air condensing on cool surfaces can trigger mold problems.
It's always best to have the mold evaluated and removed by Leak Doctor.
Where Does Mold Grow?
Mold can grow almost anywhere in a home or business if conditions permit. If there is visible growth on painted wall surfaces, property owners should be concerned about what may be growing on the wall's opposite side.
The environment inside the walls of a house often differs drastically from the outside and could create a perfect haven for mold. If the wall remains wet for a prolonged period, it's almost guaranteed that the mold growth on the back side will be worse than on the front.
At that point, containing the work space and removing moldy materials, followed by cleaning of salvageable framing, are the best options.
What Should I Do If I Suspect There is Mold In My Home?
Leak Doctor has the training and experience to: identify moisture sources, evaluate mold growth (visible or suspected), contain damage to the smallest area possible, physically remove contamination, dry materials to ensure that mold will not return, and perform the recommend procedures for returning the property to its pre-loss condition.

Always remember that the elimination of mold at the source of the contamination is extremely essential. Once mold spores spread through the air, it is more difficult to capture. Call our professionals to oversee the proper physical removal of the mold.
