Have you ever had the unfortunate experience of remembering a fruit or vegetable you bought two weeks ago and deciding that you’re excited to put it to use, only to find that you’ve forgotten about it for too long and it now is teeming with mold? It’s such a bummer. Not only do you have to clean it up, but you live with the almost guilty, regretful feeling of knowing that you paid for it during your last grocery store run. The only thing that is certainly worse is finding out that there’s mold in your Bella Vista home. If there’s one word that makes every homeowner shudder, it’s probably “mold.” Whether it’s on your groceries or (heaven forbid) even in the very structure of your home, mold can be expensive, smelly, inconvenient, and unsafe.
We at Courtesy Care would like to introduce three reasons why you should take care of mold issues the second you suspect them:
- Mold can put you and your loved ones in danger. Unchecked airborne mold can cause serious health problems, particularly to young or old people, people with allergies, or those with compromised immune systems. It can also be damaging to pets. Calling an expert about mold and having your home checked out is an investment in your health.
- Mold can damage the very structure of your home and everything inside. It will grow anywhere and destroy everything it touches; carpet, drywall, furnishings, and insulation are common targets. When it comes down to it, some expense now can save you from disastrous expenses later.
- Mold is a living organism and will not get better with time. You want to attack that beast before it gets any stronger. Because mold will worsen over time if corrective measures are not taken, so do costs to fix the problem the longer you wait. To minimize the impact on your wallet, act fast and nip the problem in the bud.
If you suspect mold problems in your home, you likely need several services; obviously, you want thorough mold testing. In addition, if you find mold, you’ll want to hire a good mold removal team. And, lastly, don’t make the mistake of ignoring the underlying causes of mold. Most cases are caused by water damage that will also need to be addressed. If mold is simply cleaned up and the causes of your mold problem are not addressed, it will almost surely return.
