Is All Mold Dangerous in Your St. Petersburg Home?

Every type of disaster that can affect your St. Petersburg home provides its own manner of risk and threats that you can prepare to face. With mold growth, there seems to be a divided camp of homeowners who believe that because mold spores occur naturally that there are no perceived risks to allowing its presence in the house. Unfortunately, this same bad information is causing problems for area residents when their homes and their families face the hazardous effects of mold colonization.

Mold damage in St. Petersburg is something every homeowner should strive to correct immediately. The reason for this is the effect that mold growth can have on structural elements of the house. As mold colonies form and spread, they require organic matter to feed and grow. This food source can get found through the erosion and degradation of affected materials throughout the damaged areas of your house the organism uses to host its colonies.

If caught early enough, our SERVPRO professionals can often protect and preserve structural elements like studs, framing and support beams that make up the skeleton of your home’s construction. Without a fast response, these materials can facilitate mold colonization and can become structurally unstable through prolonged degradation. Protecting the investment in your home means striving to act quickly at the first sign of mold growth.

Many ask if mold is even dangerous to those exposed, but this question requires specifics like the type of mold involved. With thousands of varieties of mold that could grow within your home, it should get known that the majority of these can cause potential health effects to humans and pets who become exposed to the active colonization. Our SERVPRO team can contain these thriving colonies and limit exposure while remediation work gets underway.

Mold growth is nothing that you should wait to determine its threat level. With many of the varieties toxic and harmful to respiratory systems, let our SERVPRO of NE St. Petersburg technicians work safely and efficiently to remove this threat from your home. Give us a call anytime at (727) 522-0000.
