Water damage, poor ventilation, warm temperatures and high humidity are all circumstances that can lead to a mold damage disaster. Mold can be found growing in any residential or commercial buildings, particularly in buildings that are older and are at a higher risk for water damage. Mold thrives off of damp, poor ventilated areas and can easily spread throughout the building if left unchecked.
No property is immune to mold damage. While older buildings may be more susceptible to water leaks or condensation forming on cold, poorly insulated walls, newer buildings that are tightly sealed can also have mold damage due to poor ventilation and trapped moisture. Once visible mold growth is present, removing it and ensuring that it will not return can be difficult if the proper procedures are not followed. At Regional Property Group/Raines Restoration, our team is specially trained to contain the mold growth, safely remove it, and address any conditions that may be causing the mold to grow in the first place.
Most buildings provide the ideal growing environment for mold. There are plenty of food sources, have low circulation levels, and are the ideal temperature for mold to thrive. Often, the only thing missing is moisture, which is why mold will almost always return if the mold is simply removed without first addressing the moisture problem. Moisture from a recent water damage, a hidden leaking pipe, condensation, or water seeping into your foundation can all contribute to mold growth. The moisture source may not always be obvious or visible, and our team has advanced tools and training to identify the source.
Mold spores are microscopic and are easily sent airborne with the slightest disturbance. If the conditions are right, mold growth can spread to other areas of the property. When mold is removed, precautions must be taken to contain the contamination, reducing the risk of mold spreading to other areas. Some mold spores can be toxic, and many people have allergic reactions to mold, so limiting exposure to the mold is essential for safe removal.
Regional Property Group/Raines Restoration has professional training and experience to handle any size mold removal. We will identify and remedy the source of the moisture, and will safely and effectively remove mold, giving you peace of mind.
