Water can do a lot of harm to building interiors and their contents, but drying the affected area doesn't always stop the damage. Lingering moisture forms the ideal environment for mold and mildew growth. Many different molds can be present in a home or business, but a few strains of mold like Stachybotryschartarum and Stachybotryschlorohalonata – black mold – can cause serious, lasting health issues.
When black mold grows, it consumes the organic material it finds. Targets include wood flooring and trim, sub-flooring, studs, joists and rafters. It can also affect plaster, drywall, carpeting, insulation and furniture. As the mold feeds, it releases spores into the air. Airborne spores can lodge in duct work, which distributes the spores around the interior space.
