What are The Challenges of Mold?
One of the biggest challenges of mold is that it gains momentum before becoming visible to the human eye. It typically begins in hidden areas — ducts, crawl spaces, behind the wallpaper, etc. Some early warning signs might be blistering paint or plaster that’s growing weaker. The sooner you notice the warning signs and act, the more manageable the mold removal will be.
Cleaning mold presents its own set of challenges. It’s not something that can be wiped off. In fact, if you try, the odds are the problem will get worse. The underlying dampness will still be in place. Furthermore, wiping has the effect of spreading small particles of the mold around, and perhaps embedding them deeper into the surface.

Mold that’s not properly contained can release spores into the air, which then create more mold further down the line. Finally, unless every last mold spore has been removed, they can lie dormant and grow back at a later date. You could end up with another mold problem if the cleaning isn’t done right the first time.
Bleach has been the time-honored method used to kill mold. But bleach and other common household cleaners really don’t finish the job. They might slow the growth of the mold, but they aren’t going to eliminate it at the root.
The Risks of Mold
Mold is risky to your health and home. Even sleeping in a house with a mold presence can be problematic.
Medical problems can start at a low level, including:
- Nasal congestion
- Itchy eyes
- Dry skin
At best, these issues are highly aggravating. At worst, they can lead to more serious problems. The bad air that mold creates can result in fatigue, headaches, and even the loss of memory. Those with pre-existing respiratory conditions are particularly vulnerable.
Mold that’s left untreated spreads quickly. The airflow in your home will transport the spores from room to room. The spores can rest anywhere in the house, from a countertop to a valuable possession. Mold that reaches this level will require a very extensive cleaning process. At worst, mold will leave the home and important items within it irreparably damaged.
How We Can Help
A professional mold contractor will bring the necessary equipment, from air scrubbers to custom-designed vacuums to large-scale dehumidifiers. We’ll know where to look — mold goes well beyond what’s visible and into the nooks and crannies of your property. Mold detection equipment handled by our experienced contractors can find mold that might otherwise be missed.
A thorough mold cleaning must also address the HVAC system. Anything that was circulated around the house quite likely left residue behind — and that can be the breeding ground for a future problem. The same goes for any other ducts or ventilation systems within the structure.
