What are the different types of mold, and how toxic are they?

There are a range of different species that fall under the mold category, but they can be typically categorised under

1. Allergenic

These are not harmful, but they cause mild allergic reactions

2. Pathogenic

These types of mold can be harmful if you have a compromised immune system or underlying health issues.

3. Toxigenic

These are extremely harmful and require expert attention. Professionals at JM Environmental are well-equipped to conduct mold abatement in Sacramento in case you discover such molds growing.

The growth of mold can pose a serious threat to your health. Among them, allergy and irritation are the most common, followed by nose congestion, eye irritation, breathing difficulty, headache and skin irritation. While these health issues may seem harmless initially, they can have long-term health effects.

When does mold start growing after flood damage?

Once the water has completely receded, you are on the clock to prevent mold from developing. However, that’s an extremely difficult job since mold spores are constantly flying around, which, upon coming in contact with oxygen and organic components, threatens mold growth. Some potential harbors of mold are wood, paper products, tiles, cardboard, drywall, wallpaper, carpet, and others.

What are some DIYs that can help prevent mold growth?

In most cases, you might not need to contact professionals to prevent mold growth. Let's explore the possible ways you can do so:

1.Airing the room: After the flood is over and the sun is out, it is time to open the rooms and air them out to release the trapped moisture. Proper ventilation is the most important step toward preventing mold growth.

2.Discarding possible breeding grounds: Get rid of porous or absorbent substances such as sponges, ceiling tiles, and papers.JM Environmental offers excellent asbestos abatement services to ensure the restoration of your house’s sanctity.

3.Wash and disinfect exposed surfaces: Do not forget to clean, disinfect and dry them as soon as possible to prevent bacteria and mold from growing.

4.Use Humidifier: If you live in a flood-prone zone or a cyclone-affected region, you probably already know about a dehumidifier. Use a dehumidifier or fans for proper air circulation. We suggest using a dehumidifier since it balances the humid level around you to ensure mold doesn’t grow.

5.Inspecting drainage and water sources: Check the drainage system, roof leaks, and indoor plumbing. Additionally, do not forget to check the water storage, water source, and filtration system, especially pipes, to prevent mold from growing inside.
