You probably don’t think too much about mold until you see a news story or are directly affected by it. The school that was condemned, the reason your neighbor wasn’t able to sell his home, and the mysterious sickness that your kid just can’t seem to shake could all have been caused by a seemingly innocent fungus.
Mold is a serious health hazard that should be taken seriously. It can grow almost anywhere that has seen moisture in your Aurora, CO, home or business. Drywall, ceiling tiles, roofing, ductwork, carpets, and under flooring or sinks; when the conditions are right, mold takes hold and grows very quickly. Mold is tough to remove, and it is invasive. Don’t waste time or money on home remedies; they don’t work well and the mold will come back, creating an even bigger liability for you.
Why has mold awareness become so pervasive? Why has mold been viewed as a certified public health issue over the past twenty years? There are several reasons:
- Modern homes and new construction structures were built to be energy efficient, so less air gets into the building.
- Asthma and allergic reactions are much better understood these days, and some of these are worsened by mold.
- New construction utilizes many more organic materials than in previous years and organic material is more likely to house and harbor mold.
