A mold infestation is much more than a fungus. Sure, it’s a nuisance, but beyond than that, it’s a health hazard that also indicates a larger issue with moisture in your home. Mold often accompanies water damage, whether large-scale or localized, and is not something to underestimate or shrug off, as doing so could mean extensive damage to your property. Mold can be hidden behind walls and underneath floorboards, so it’s important to take charge of mold at the first sign of an infestation before it causes permanent damage to your Denver home.

Mold Deteriorates Possessions

Mold “feeds” on organic materials, and when combined with water, the natural result is the deterioration of your home and personal property. Water can break down floors, walls, furniture, carpeting, or anything else that has been exposed to moisture. While water on its own has the capability to deteriorate home materials, mold only hastens that process. But, mold can take things a step further by destroying items beyond repair the longer it remains on their surfaces. This can be especially distressing when it comes to items of value or extensive areas of your home.

Mold Can Linger in HVAC Systems

Mold spores are always present in the air, but when a mold outbreak begins and the danger is present, your HVAC system is the next thing you have to worry about. Not only do the spores find their way into the ducts and stay there, they are also spread throughout the property at a rapid rate, increasing your chances for another outbreak somewhere else in the home.
