Especially during the summer months, Florida is rainy, humid, and muggy. Even areas that aren’t swampland are incredibly moist, and during hurricane season water can get everywhere. Mold loves to grow in dark, humid environments which makes Florida a prime spot for out-of-control mold growth. You may think that just because you can’t smell mold or see it growing, you’re good. But that’s not the case! If you live in Orlando, even if you can’t see an infestation, there’s a good chance you need mold remediation!
Mold loves to grow in air vents, behind baseboards, in between walls, air ducts, on top of or behind large appliances like refrigerators, and other places. Just because you can’t see the mold growing, or smell it in a room, doesn’t mean it’s not there. Remember, mold loves to grow in damp and dark places, which often means the places in your house that you can’t see.
What happens when mold is growing rapidly but you can’t see it?
Even though you can’t see it, rapidly growing mold becomes airborne and releases spores into your air. Especially if the infestation is in your air vents, these spores get circulated throughout your house. Not only does this increase the chances of more mold growth elsewhere, but it also endangers your health.
Mold can seriously increase allergies, exacerbate asthma or other pulmonary diseases, and decrease your overall health. Many people report feeling overall more sick with a mold infestation. It’s not good!
Thankfully, there’s a simple way we can help. We can conduct an Air Quality Test to determine whether your air is filled with mold spores or other toxins. From there, we’ll know if you have a mold infestation and can take steps to find it and begin remediation work.
We follow all relevant EPA protocols and prioritize safety. We’ll treat your mold infestation at the source and do our best to completely eliminate it from your environment. Often mold remediation jobs are large and complex, so we work closely with your insurance company to find the most cost-effective solution. Sometimes they require tear-outs of parts of the wall, baseboards, or appliances. In cases like that, we work extremely carefully to ensure that your house looks as good as new once we’re done.
