If you keep noticing a musty, unpleasant smell in your Tampa, Florida, home, or if you and your family start having unexplained health issues, you might have a mold problem. Mold can grow behind wallpaper, beneath carpeting, on drywall, and on wood furniture. Because mold spores are microscopic, you can’t keep them out of your home completely, but you can get rid of most of them and stop others from spreading. Mold remediation can improve your indoor air quality, prevent health problems, and protect your home.
Improving Your Indoor Air Quality
Mold in your ductwork and the rest of your home’s HVAC system spreads easily, and it can shorten your system’s life and cause inconvenient breakdowns. Improving your indoor air quality with mold remediation will make your home more comfortable and welcoming for visitors. It helps you save on utility bills by keeping your system efficient and also makes the air inside your home smell fresher.
Preventing Health Problems
Mold can cause sinus trouble, headaches, rashes, eye irritation, fatigue, and asthma and allergy symptoms. Problems might start with a runny nose or other minor issues and then worsen as the mold in your home spreads. A mold remediation expert can check your home for mold spores that contain mycotoxins or allergens and remove them with specialized chemicals.
Protecting Your Home
If you let mold spread, you could end up having to remove and replace walls, carpeting, furniture and more. If mold or water damage harms the structural integrity of your home, you could even have to tear parts of it down and rebuild. Stopping mold before it spreads helps your home retain its value and makes mold remediation easier and less expensive.
