Bristol, Kingsport, and Johnson City, TN
Mold naturally occurs in the environment around us, but when it develops in your home or business, that is a problem. Research clearly indicates that exposure to mold inside the home can have serious health implications such as:
- Sinus infections
- Chronic allergies (sneezing, coughing, watery eyes)
- Difficulty breathing
Household mold can also exacerbate health issues such as asthma, allergies, or chronic lung diseases
The problem with mold is that it can spread within your home, and you may not even see it at first. Even worse, when you go to purchase a new home, it could be lurking under flooring, behind walls, or in the basement or crawlspace. Sometimes, even a thorough home inspection may not detect mold in these unseen areas.
Although mold may be unseen at times, it emits an obvious musty or mildew-like smell that is indistinguishable from anything else. Also, you or others that live in the home may experience some or all of the health conditions listed above. Therefore, if you notice a strong odor indicating there could be mold growing inside your home or you experience any of these health conditions, call the professionals at Spotless Carpet Cleaners.
So, what happens when you do discover you have a mold problem?
If you find mold anywhere inside your home or suspect it is there, it needs to be handled professionally. The first step should be to make a call to your insurance company to determine if the mold damage will be covered or not. It will entirely depend on if it was caused by sudden water damage (like a busted pipe), flood, or something else.
Then, call the experts at Spotless Carpet Cleaners to assess the damage, and devise a plan to get rid of this health hazard and keep you and your family safe from mold damage in the future. Mold will not go away on its own, it will only get worse. You can contact our team of professionals by calling (423) 926-9251.
