Why Mold Must Be Removed Quickly
Mold develops in moist environments. Often it can begin to grow without us seeing it, either behind fixtures (walls and furniture for example), or even within them. While most of us are not concerned about a little mold, it is important to consider the environmental and health impacts that this can have on your home and family. Mold develops spores that travel through the air and are breathed in by whoever is in the building.
Why Time is Important
Like any organism, over time mold grows. This creates a wider problem of allergens and irritants within your home and it is important to act quickly because your health is priority number one. It is easy to clean mold yourself within the bathrooms, when mold is on tiled surfaces, however when it is in porous items, such as wood or drywall, a simple surface clean may not be enough to remove all the mold. This means that it will continue to grow back.
If you suspect mold growing in your Parkersburg home or business, SERVPRO of Wood, Ritchie & Pleasants Counties can help answer your concerns through a simple inspection, assessment and remediation, if deemed important to do so.

Some restoration companies advertise “mold removal” and may even guarantee to remove all mold. This is a fallacy because removing all mold from a house or business is impossible; microscopic mold spores exist almost everywhere, both indoors and outdoors. Here are the facts:
- Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
- Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.
- Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
- Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
- Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
- Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.
