How Fast Does Mold Grow

 

 

water-damage-flood

Mold is something that grows extremely quickly and starts in places where it is hard to find. Places such as ceilings, under floors, under cabinets, or in the basement. The longer it goes unnoticed, the more quickly it can spread to other areas of the home. The temperature of your home is the best climate for mold growth and you will notice that it can appear in under 24 hours.

Causes of Mold

There are a few things that determine how quickly mold will grow. Rooms without air flow will allow mold to grow fast because there is no where for the spores to go except in the same room. The humidity and temperature of the room will matter because mold grows more quickly in a warm and humid environment. The last factor is the presence of wet organic material is inside of the room. The mold can grow up to a square inch per day if there are optimal conditions and can expand to several feet in just a week’s time.

Spread of Mold

Within a short period of time mold can grow from a small spot into a whole colony. Even if the mold is removed from the space it can still return. Mold spores are aggressive and if you don’t treat them correctly they will keep returning. Certain disasters make homes more susceptible to mold. These disasters are fires, floods, leaks, and water damage. The ability for mold to regrow is specifically why you should contact mold restoration professionals to inspect and treat the area.

Mold is Dangerous to Your Health

Remember that mold is toxic and will continue to damage your health as long as it is present. Mold causes symptoms such as coughing, headaches, watery eyes, fatigue, congestion, throat irritation, skin irritation, nosebleeds, dizziness, memory loss, and fevers. If you experience any of these symptoms and believe that mold is the cause you should see your doctor and set up an appointment with a local mold restoration company. Mold should be dealt with as quickly as possible to ensure that it doesn’t spread to other areas of the home or cause health problems to complicate.

Michaels Recalls 2 Products Due to Mold

The well-known arts & crafts store, Michaels, has recently recalled two products due to the possibility that they may contain mold. Both of these products were exclusively sold for the 2015 holiday season and the company is now offering a full refund for their return. By sharing this information and refunding customers, companies like Michaels help prevent consumers from being harmed.

Ashland® Holiday Paper Boxes

The first product that Michaels has recalled for the 2015 season is Ashland® holiday paper boxes. These boxes were found to possibly contain mold that causes respiratory infections. This mold was found to be especially harmful to consumers who already have severe allergies, weakened lungs, or an otherwise compromised immune system. If you or someone you know owns any of these boxes immediately stop using them and return them to Michaels for a full refund.

Ashland® Artificial Poinsettia Flower

The second product being recalled by Michaels from the 2015 holiday season is the Ashland® artificial poinsettia flower. Some of these flowers were found to be harboring mold spores. They have green stems and red leaves with gold accents on them. If you or anyone you know has this product, stop using it immediately and return it for a full refund.

Mold Spores

Mold spores have the ability to travel easily and affect the health of anyone in their vicinity. If you see mold on any product that you have bought from a store, you should report it. By reporting products that contain mold it helps alert other consumers to potential health dangers. Also, this ensures that companies do something to prevent the spread of mold, which eventually will damage homes and the inhabitants’ health.

We Use Eco Friendly Products

Water Damage Zone uses eco friendly products that will restore your home without harming you or your pets. Many other restoration companies use products that aren’t eco friendly and can cause health problems for your family. By choosing Water Damage Zone you will ensure that your family will be safe from dangerous chemicals. These are some of the reasons that we use eco friendly products.

Cleaning Products Are Unregulated

Did you know that many cleaning products aren’t even approved by the EPA? This means that these products have the potential to be extremely harmful to you and the environment. When products don’t have to be regulated it allows for some pretty toxic chemicals to make their way into your home. Often these products can easily be purchased over the counter in many home improvement stores

Poisoning the Environment

When non ecofriendly cleaning products are used and then flushed down drains in your home, they find their way into nearby bodies of water. Here they are allowed into the environment by way of the water cycle. When this happens the chemicals recirculate and damage wildlife populations and even poison our own water supply. By never using these products in the first place, we can help to create a better environment.

Clean Air Inside the Home

By only using eco friendly products you will prevent chemicals from seeping into the air in your home. Spray and aerosol products allow volatile compounds to come into contact with people and cause short and long-term health effects. These effects usually have to do with damage to the central nervous system, liver, or kidneys. Sprays can leave chemicals in the air long after they have been used. This is why they should never be used in the first place.

Don’t use a company that doesn’t put the health of you and your family first. Water Damage Zone works to restore your home without cutting any corners. We use products that will be safe around your family and pets. By choosing to work with us you will protect yourself and the environment from the devastating effects of the harsh chemicals found in unregulated cleaning products.
