Mold Prevention Is Preferable to Mold Removal – Be Proactive in the Wake of a Flood or Plumbing Leak

If a homeowner discovers that a plumbing leak or a refrigerator malfunction has saturated a wall or floor with water, she or he will probably immediately accept the need to repair the problem or hire a professional to do so in order to avoid wood rot and other potential damage to the home. However, in many cases, that’s only the first step toward preventing a costly repair job. In fact, anytime that a home’s construction materials have been soaked or even exposed to prolonged moisture from condensation, mold prevention should be a top priority.

Yet many homeowners will wait until fungus spores take root and establish a colony before taking action to combat mold. This can lead to the need for expensive removal and replacement of a home’s construction materials to eradicate the mold. And, unfortunately, most mold remediation companies don’t guarantee their methods for prevention of mold regrowth.

The Adverse Effects of Mold in Your Home

There are many reasons to be proactive about mold prevention in your home. If mold is visible, it will probably detract from the appearance of your living spaces. Even more important than that, however, are the potential human health effects caused by mold, including:

  • Nasal congestion
  • Scratchy throat and coughing
  • Wheezing and shortness of breath
  • Eye irritation

In fact, some people, including those with asthma or lung disease, can develop serious respiratory infections when they are exposed to mold.
