The reason why mold and mildew removal is so important is because it can spread very quickly, especially if it is an area in your home that doesn’t get much use, or have stagnant air. Mold and mildew like to grow in areas that are damp and dark as well. This is probably the reason why you most often see it inside of your shower.
Mold and mildew are composed of millions of tiny cells. They are closely related to your typical fungus. The way that it propagates itself is by sending these tiny spores airborne to colonize new areas of your bathroom or your home. Even though there are more than 10,000 species of mold and mildew out there, there are only a few dozen of them that are very dangerous. Unfortunately, you never know which type is growing in your home. So if you do notice that you have mold, it is best to try and take care of it right away. Even the strains of mold that are not toxic, are still mildly toxic.
If you develop symptoms associated with mold problem or you feel like it is making you cough, make sure to call an expert right away to do mold and mildew removal. They have professional equipment which protects them from dangerous types of mold. If you think that the mold you have might be dangerous, you can send it in to have it tested. The books that I have read on mold and mildew suggest that if you have more than 25 ft.² of mold problems, you should consider contacting a professional company, and let them take care of the problem for you.
By improving the ventilation in your home, bathroom, and around your home, you can virtually keep mold from growing. Another idea is to use mold resistant primers. A third idea would be to allow more light into your home. Mold and mildew cannot grow well in full sunlight.
