This winter has been a whirlwind of differing temperatures. One week our temperatures are extremely warm, and the next, it is freezing. With these drastic changes, it is no surprise we are seeing rapid mold growth. Mold growth generally stays more dormant during the winter months because of less warmth and humidity, but mold has been growing rapidly with the ups and downs in weather.

Do You Have Mold Growth?

Mold growth can occur for a variety of reasons, but the main reason is usually water damage. Water damage that was not removed properly always results in mold growth. Other reasons for mold growth are lack of ventilation and higher humidity in the home. If you have noticed stains on your walls and ceilings, it is most likely from mold growth. Water stains usually are a precursor to mold growth. If you see any sign of stains on your walls or ceilings, it is important to contact a company like Restoration 1 Conroe.

What Should I Do?

Once mold stains are present on your property, it means you have an infestation of mold growing. Mold can breed very rapidly under the right circumstances. Once this occurs, it causes damages to walls, the structure of your home, ceilings, and even insulation. In order to remove the mold, mold remediation is complete. This process requires special equipment, as all mold-damaged materials must be removed, and the areas must be cleaned to ensure all mold and mold spores are killed. This process should be handled by a professional. If the mold is not completely removed and mold spores are left, the cycle will start again, resulting in more mold growth on the property.
