Mold can damage and destabilize property by attacking the structure itself, and following a flood or fire damage mold can quickly become a problem if the moisture is not removed from the affected area.
There are many ways that mold can enter an environment. Mold spores surround us every day, they are an important part of nature’s recycling system, and mostly harmless. They enter your property through doors and windows, on clothing and skin—they are carried in by pets and people alike. Mold spores are looking for a hospitable environment, and they prefer moist locations where they are unlikely to be disturbed. Any place where the humidity has risen above 45% is a possible mold hazard, and the aftermath of a flood or fire is just the opportunity they have been waiting for. Water can drip down between floorboards, seep into walls and supporting structures, and saturate insulation. Most of the time, mold forms in the places you don’t see, and by the time it spreads into a visible area, you’ve got a real problem on your hands. Basically, if you see mold, it’s already too late. You’re going to need a trained professional to help locate, assess, and eradicate the mold on your property before it gets any worse. Mold can colonize a hospitable area in as little as 48 hours after the introduction of moisture, and it can spread rapidly from the areas directly affected by flooding or fire into other areas. Before long, the entire property has been infiltrated by mold, and the spores can have devastating consequences for anyone unfortunate enough to spend time inside its walls.
Not all types of mold are harmful to humans, but some of them are. “Black mold” strains can be toxic, causing serious symptoms including breathing problems, mental impairment, and damage to internal organs. There are compounds produced by

Mold has a distinctive musty odor that can be difficult to remedy, even after the mold in your home or business has been located. It can be tempting to try to remove the mold yourself, using over the counter sprays or bleach. Unfortunately, some molds can withstand even direct contact with bleach, and often times the materials that have grown moldy have done so because they are porous. Porous surfaces often harbor mold deep under the surface, and without access to professional grade cleaning solutions, the residue left behind can spark a new colony within days of your initial removal attempt. Some companies that offer mold removal services will only cover up the musty mold odor with stinky chemical sprays—masking the problem, never fully eliminating it. At Sky Disaster Restoration Inc. we know better than that. Covering an odor is not the same as eliminating it at its source, and at Sky Disaster Restoration Inc. we guarantee that we will never simply cover the smell of mold with another one. We use only biologically safe cleaning materials, never harsh chemicals. We take your health and safety very seriously at Sky Disaster Restoration Inc., and that commitment to service is reflected in our methods when taking on a mold problem. We guarantee complete mold removal services, every time.
