Most people think mold is just something in your house that looks nasty in the bathroom. But before you know the dangers of mold you should have an idea of what exactly mold is.

Mold belongs to the fungi family.  This nasty element can thrive almost anywhere. Studies performed have shown that over 50 percent of homes and businesses have moisture present which is a prime harvesting spot for mold.  Mold spores reproduce rapidly when moisture is present.  Excessive dampness indoors encourages the growth of molds and other organisms, potentially causing health problems.

Intrusion of water into your home or place of business can result in mold growth.  This can be from storm damage, plumbing or equipment failures, long-standing leaks and poor humidity control.  When these water issues are not addressed right away, the resulting damage can present increased risk of harmful mold growth. 

As the season’s change and rain mixes with colder temperatures, there is an excess of moisture. This extra amount of moisture can open the door to fungal growth which thrives in damp areas.

The professionals at SERVPRO of Vacaville/Fairfield/Dixon handle water damages every day and know that prompt action is required to prevent and eradicate mold growth before it becomes worse.
