Frequently Asked Questions

What is mold?

Molds produce tiny spores to reproduce. Mold spores waft through the indoor and outdoor air continually. When mold spores land on damp spots indoors, they may begin growing and digesting whatever they are growing on in order to survive. There are molds that can grow on wood, paper, carpet and foods. When excessive moisture or water accumulates indoors, mold growth will often occur, particularly if the moisture problem remains undiscovered or unaddressed. If mold is discovered or suspected of being present contact us immediately for inspection and possible removal.

What do I do if I discover water flooding my home?

If water is discovered from a pipe or line failure in your home you should shut off the main water valve to your home (Valve is generally outside of home on the side) stopping the flow of water and preventing the damage from becoming more excessive. Call a licensed local professional (SWAT 24 LLC) immediately to remove any water that is still in the home. At this point the water should be removed and the proper procedures and equipment should be put in place to properly dry the home and its building materials helping prevent mold growth from beginning or getting worse.

Can mold cause health problems?

Molds have the potential to cause health problems. Molds produce allergens, irritants, and in some cases potentially toxic substances (mycotoxins). Inhaling or touching mold or mold spores may cause allergic reactions in sensitive individuals. Allergic responses include hay fever type symtoms, such as sneezing, runny nose, red eyes and skin rash (dermatitis). Allergic reactions to molds are common. They can be immediate or delayed. Molds can also cause asthma attacks in people with asthma who are allergic to mold. In addition, mold exposure can irritate the eyes, skin, nose, throat and lungs of both mold-allergic and non-allergic people. For more (personal) detailed information consult your health professional/doctor.
