Mold, Dangerous and definitely unwanted but highly prevalent. Mold in Tampa Bay is about as common as sunlight. And although we may not like it and do all we can to prevent it, mold can be found in almost any home – especially in our warm, damp climate.
To really understand the dangers of mold and signs, we must first understand that the one of the best treatments for mold is making sure your home is well ventilated and whenever possible, using cleaners that can kill mold. Although this may work for most homes, there are exceptions which can be very dangerous and even fatal – including black mold.
Before we get too worried, it’s also important to know that mold is very hard, if not impossible, to completely eliminate from a home. We’re not so much concerned with slight amounts of mold but rather with large areas of mold or mold that can cause people to become sick.
The most common mold in our area grows in damp, warm places – often near windows, in or near bathrooms and in kitchens. These areas offer ideal environments for many types of mold although it can be found elsewhere in the home. Many times it can be spotted rather easily but in some cases, a small sign of mold can be found to be far worse than expected once someone uncovers the actual source of the growth. Such things as leaky pipes, improper seals and even damaged appliances can cause mold growth not only on the outsides of walls but deeper in the walls – often unseen and undetected.
It goes without saying that undetected mold can not just cause some discomfort but can be highly dangerous to those sensitive to it such as young children and the elderly.
