What Causes Mold Growth in Athens, GA?
Athens GA has a warm southern environment. The humidity, heat, and rain all make Athens and surrounding areas an easy place for mold to grow and thrive. Mold only needs air, a food source, and moisture to grow. All of these things are conveniently found no matter where you live. This is why it is important to be aware of mold and to know some basic information. Mold can be an array of colors. Just because there looks to be black mold, doesn’t necessarily mean that it is toxic mold.
Mold also comes in a variety of textures ranging from, fluffy and cotton-like to slimy and gooey. This is why it is so hard to identify mold just from looking at it or describing it. It is best to have mold analysis done to see what specific type of mold is found. Another common indicator of mold is smell. Most of the time a musty odor is associated with mold growth. If a lingering, musty odor doesn’t seem to leave your home, it’s very likely there is mold hiding somewhere in your home. If you suspect there is mold hiding in your home call Mold Test USA to find out what can be done to fix your mold problem. Mold Test USA has mold specialists waiting to speak with you about your specific situation and answer any questions you have about mold.

There have been several instances at colleges where mold has been found in dorm rooms. Usually in dormitories, maintenance issues are dealt with by work orders. Unfortunately, the work orders aren’t always dealt with in the timeliest manner. Mold is not only unpleasant to look at, but it also can be harmful to your health. If mold is found, it is important that it is identified to see if it is a dangerous, toxic mold. The college’s maintenance man may not be certified for mold inspection and he may not know exactly what kind of mold they are dealing with. If toxic mold is being cleaned, it needs to be removed properly to avoid making mold spores airborne and potentially spreading the mold to different areas. Being exposed to toxic mold over an extended period of time, can create memory loss, muscle spasms, asthma, watering eyes, irritated skin, and many other symptoms. It is very important that if your college student complains of mold in his or her dorm room, the mold is looked at by a professional mold inspection company. It is better to be safe than sorry in situations dealing with one’s health.
