In homes or offices mold can cause serious damage to the health of the occupants as well as to the value of the structure.
Mold remediation of black mold can be a costly but necessary task. Black mold can affect us mainly in two ways: health and financial.
The Health Risks of Black Mold
Black mold grows when the conditions are right and it only requires three things to grow: moisture, still warm air and something to grow on. Since most of the building materials which we use in construction are preferred by mold and black mold prefers the temperatures which we prefer usually all that is missing is the moisture. Mold spores exist in most places but they haven’t started to grow yet. When moisture is added these mold spores become fruitful and multiply. Once black mold starts to grow it puts down roots and starts producing spores (think of seeds of a dandelion). When a breeze comes along these little spores get airborne and we breathe them into our lungs. Mold spores in our bodies have a lot of different effects but they mainly produce cold and flu-like symptoms.
The Financial Cost of Black Mold
Most people don’t think about this aspect of mold, but when there is mold in a property or a history of mold in a property then buyers are less likely to purchase your property and, therefore, property values drop. This is why we always think it’s a good idea to do a Post Remediation Verification or a test by a third party to verify that the mold remediation was done completely and properly. This not only gives you the confidence that the mold remediation company that you hired did a good job but it also gives you a legal document that you can use to prove to future buyers of the property that the property is free of black mold.
