Mold is a serious problem when it appears in homes and buildings because it can cause property damage and negatively affect your health. The main causes of mold growth include flooding, water damage, and excess humidity as mold spores need a source of moisture to survive. Once mold takes hold, it can cause serious damage to the affected surfaces and spread to new areas of your property. It is important to call a professional as soon as you find mold growth to limit its spread and repair the damage.

Mold Remediation in the State of Texas
In 2003, the Texas legislature passed House Bill 329, granting the Texas DSHS regulator power over Mold Testing and Remediation services. This was done to protect consumers from unethical practices and unqualified service providers that had taken advantage of the public concern over the dangers of mold. Under this law, only mold remediation companies licensed by the State of Texas are allowed to provide mold remediation services.
ServiceMaster Restoration and Cleaning is licensed by the Texas DSHS to provide effective mold remediation services. Our services are done according to the standards passed by the Texas state legislature.
Damage Caused by Mold
Mold growth is dangerous because of the amount of property damage it can cause, and the effect it can have on your health. The reason mold can cause immense damage is because it feeds on cellulose, which is an organic material found in wood, drywall, and other common building materials. When mold takes hold on a surface, it is eating away at the materials which can lead to structural damage. The ability for mold to spread can also increase the amount of damage on your property.
The health effects of mold should be a major concern as well. Those exposed to mold are likely to experience allergic reactions that include headaches, coughing, trouble breathing, nasal congestion, skin irritation, and itchy eyes and throat. If you are exposed to mold for a long period of time, more serious conditions like asthma and respiratory infections are possible.

Mold Removal FAQ
It is not advised that homeowners attempt to clean a household space contaminated by a larger sized mold infestation. An effective mold remediation plan requires experience, skill, and safety equipment – most of which the average homeowner lacks. The following are reasons to avoid DIY mold removal.
While everyone breathes in airborne mold spores, only a few people will experience allergies. The immune systems of people allergic to mold are highly sensitive and respond to spores with an allergic reaction. Plus, among the innumerable mold species, only some cause allergic reactions.
Mold is not a problem you should let linger on your property. The longer you allow mold to grow and spread, the higher the risk for serious structural damage and health issues. You should never try to clean up significant mold growth yourself either because you can make the problem worse. Improper cleaning methods will aggravate the mold and cause it to disperse its spores which will spread the growth and increase the risk of related health effects. It is crucial that you call a mold removal professional such as ServiceMaster Restoration and Cleaning right away.
