Signs You Need to Call KW Restoration for Mold Remediation

Besides structural damage, mold contamination can also lead to health issues for occupants. If we can list them, the list will look just like the below:

There are several reasons why mold grows and keeps on growing. Mold thrives in damp, humid conditions. Common causes include: water leaks, high humidity, poor ventilation, flooding

Can Water Leak Mold Lead to Health Issues?

Floodwaters and excess moisture can create serious health risks. Bacteria and viruses thrive in wet environments, and mold from water damage can quickly become an airborne problem. Mold exposure can lead to respiratory infections like bronchitis and fungal infections like athlete's foot and thrush.
Late symptoms might include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and weight loss. It is important to act quickly after water damage, as the first 24-48 hours are critical for effective water removal and drying. Contact a professional mold removal expert like us if you or your family members have health problems after mold exposure.

How to Prevent Mold Growth After Water Damage

Mold growth after water damage can be frustrating, but effective ways exist to prevent it. Here are some steps you can take:
Remove or Drain the Water: After a flood or leak, promptly remove excess moisture to assess the damage. Plastic buckets or wet-dry vacuums can help with this.
Remove Damp Carpet or Flooring: Remove water-damaged flooring or carpeting to prevent mold, especially on grooved floors where moisture can get trapped.
Control Moisture Levels: Keep humidity in check to discourage mold growth. Use dehumidifiers and open windows for airflow.
Act Quickly: Address water damage within 48 hours to prevent mold. Mold spores thrive in moisture, so drying affected areas promptly is crucial.

In the midst of all this not to forget about black mold. Can black mold be a problem? With proper inquiry and preparation, it can also be prevented.

Black Mold
When you talk about mold, the discussion is incomplete with referring to black mold. Black mold also is a type of fungus that thrives in warm, humid conditions with moisture levels above 70%. 

Causes: The most common cause of black mold is water damage. When water seeps into your home and remains stagnant for extended periods, it creates an ideal environment for black mold growth. Poor ventilation can also contribute to its development.
Appearance: Black mold appears dark green or black and commonly emerges in damp or water-damaged areas of your home, such as basements, showers, and windows.
Health Impact: Black mold can trigger allergies like sneezing and coughing, but serious illness or death is rare. However, those with weakened immune systems may develop fungal infections from exposure. 
Prevention: Preventing black mold involves controlling moisture levels in your home by fixing leaks and ensuring proper ventilation. Regularly inspecting and cleaning areas prone to dampness can also help keep mold at bay.
