Not only does mold cause health problems if left untreated, but can severely damage the structure of your property as well. Nature’s primary mode of decomposition, mold’s number one goal is breakdown all types of organic material; much of it found within common building materials.
Mold occurs with the presence of untreated moisture sources within the property and can include leaking pipes, poor ventilation, and other sources of high moisture.

What Causes Mold? Factors that Contribute to Mold Growth
Presence of Moisture – Moisture is the number one factor that contributes to mold growth. Without moisture, mold cannot colonize and spread. It is quite common for property owners to have moisture issues without knowing. This can be quite dangerous since mold can grow quite rapidly.
If you notice mold growth on a nearby wall, ceiling or floor, chances are you have a water damage problem which is causing the mold. At Emergency Response, we will be able to fully assess the situation and identify any hidden leaks or sources of water intrusion. Not only will we be able to remediate the mold, but will be able to address the water source of the problem quickly and effectively.
Poor Ventilation – Mold thrives in dark, stagnant areas. Properties with poor ventilation have a high chance of experiencing mold growth- especially if a moisture source is present. Ventilation issues can be addressed by re-directing your HVAC lines or installing exhaust fans in appropriate areas. However, if you have a ventilation issue that has caused mold growth, Emergency Response can be the professional you need to remediate the problem as well as provide solutions to increase ventilation on your property.
Presence of Organic Material – Building materials such as sheetrock and wood are prime sources of food for mold. In addition, interior finishes such as carpet, wallpaper and other textiles are ideal for mold colonization and growth. Combine the ideal food source of building materials with any amount of moisture and a dark area, and your property could quickly have a mold problem.
At Emergency Response, we have an extensive track record of success handling all kinds of mold remediation projects. If you detect mold on your property, we have the experience it takes to successfully remediate any mold issues you encounter.
