Flood properties need to be dewatered as soon as possible after significant storm events. Almost all of us are aware of that. But few among us pay attention to the mold issues associated with high moisture levels left behind when the flood waters recede, and the ill-effects of mold on health.

Consider mold removal and remediation to safeguard your property, increase your home’s value, and keep family members away from more than a dozen health risks.

Mold Growth Jeopardizes Family Member’s Health

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services link mold growth with poor indoor air quality and several illnesses:

  • Nasal stiffness
  • Runny nose
  • Cough
  • Wheezing
  • Eye irritation
  • Nose irritation
  • Throat irritation
  • Skin irritation
  • Upper respiratory irritation
  • Headaches
  • Serious lung infections
  • Strong symptoms of asthma
  • Fatigue

New Jersey’s climate encourages the growth of several types of molds in your home and office. Some molds are more dangerous than others. The most toxic mold is Stachybotrys, more popular by its other name, Black Mold.

Black mold can grow from barely visible to a health hazard in three days. Do not jeopardize your family members’ health after water damage. Call professionals for rapid mold clean-up.

I didn’t know that mold growth could cause several illnesses, and that some mold was more dangerous than others. I have noticed that there is some mold in my bathroom, and I have been wondering what to do. I will have to make sure that I call professionals to come clean it up before my family can get sick. Thank you for the information!

I’ve noticed some mold in my home and I need to get rid of it. It looks like the last picture you have here and I really don’t want to be breathing that stuff in. I’ll have to go with a professional as I don’t know the proper method for removing the mold.
