Fungi affect indoor air quality, and, unfortunately, can grow very fast. Molds can begin to grow at home with more than 60% humidity under 48 hours. Mold can even grow and develop in cold rooms, like refrigerators, as long as temperatures are above 40 degrees Fahrenheit. Even though you may not be able to see the actual decay, it does not mean that it is not there and causes damage to your home and health.
The presence of mold at home has many negative effects. People can be exposed through direct skin contact, breathing or swallowing. Exposure to fungi can cause many health problems, including breathing difficulties, asthma, and topical skin rashes.
Mold growth can also have a serious impact on your wallet for two reasons: 1) if it is allowed to enter, the fungus will continue to grow and become increasingly expensive to remove; and 2) due to the increasing number of lawsuits related to decay, many home insurance companies now do not include printed insurance from homeowner's policies.
Experts know that Mold must have two things to survive and develop: moisture and moisture. A fungus removal specialist in Houston, TX can visit your home to identify places where mushrooms grow or have grown before.
Such specialists can then thoroughly seal your home so that it is fully waterproof and protected from future fungal growth. If necessary and applicable, a mold removal specialist may also want to install a crawling vapor barrier system to protect your home and your health.
