Minneapolis Mold Mitigation


Mold is the result of flooding, roof leaks, sewage backups, damp basements, plumbing leaks, wet sink overflows, high humidity, and neglected dryer vents. Basically, it occurs anywhere moisture may fuel it. Mold makes it necessary for you to assess your home on a regular basis, including materials made of paper and wood due to the fact that mold is attracted to organic materials.

For some individuals, mold is a recurring problem. This means that it keeps coming back no matter what they do. Even if you wipe it away or apply bleach to it, the spores may still be present and that means the mold is going to grow back from those spores. Only a professional mold remediation service is going to be able to ensure that this mold does not come back.

The Problem With Mold

There are different types of mold that exists in our everyday lives, but there are some forms of mold that are harmful. To determine how harmful mold is, each type is placed into a class. Those classes include:

  • Hazard Class A – This is the class of harmful molds that puts people at risk for infections and can potentially become toxic. If found, these molds need to be removed immediately. There are some forms of gray, brown, yellow, green, white, and black molds that reside in this category.
  • Hazard Class B – These molds tend to cause allergic reactions. The longer a person is exposed, the more likely an allergic reaction is to occur. Molds in this category can be green, brown, gray, white, black, or blue.
  • Hazard Class C – These molds tend to not be hazardous to health. These molds tend to cause structural damage, so they destroy whatever they are growing on. These molds can be blue, green, white, green, brown, gray, or black.Moldy cabinets

Basically, it is hard to tell one type of mold from another based upon its color. Even if it is a mold that is not hazardous to your health, it is one that is going to be harmful to whatever it is growing on. This means you need the intervention of a Minneapolis mold mitigation professional as soon as possible.

Cleaning And Removal Of Mold

It is best to not try and address mold issues on your own and here is why: Wiping dry mold can result in the spores becoming airborne and this causes a health risk. Plus, before mold is ever cleaned the reason for the problem needs to be eliminated. If moisture is a problem within the home, dehumidifiers can help and so can good ventilation.
