Did you know that there are multiple, hundreds, and thousands of mold spores floating around outdoors? Knowing the dangers of mold, it is quite frightening to think about. What is more of a concern, would be finding mold inside your own home. Mold is known to belong to the kingdom of fungi. It can appear to be plant-like but cannot create its own food. It absorbs its nutrients from other organic substances. Mold can simply generate with water and something living – or even once living, like wood. Invitations of mold to your own home would consist of poor ventilation, moisture, and water damage which was not assisted immediately. In many areas of your home where water vapor happens to occur, you want to be sure that you have a source of ventilation within that area. The consistent moisture and humidity will eventually cause mold. This is another reason to report any serious water damage right away. You might be able to clean the visible mess but sometimes the affected areas cannot be seen. SERVPRO of Mar Vista is here for you 365 days 24/7.
