ServiceMaster by ARTec also provides Black Mold Remediation in West Chester and Media, PA
We’ve had a wet and wild summer here in Pennsylvania, particularly within the communities of Delaware County, Chester County, Montgomery County, Philadelphia County and, of course, all the surrounding areas. Rain has descended upon us from front after front, and it seems like this trend is just going to continue.
With incessant rain comes the increasing prevalence of high humidity, particularly during the intervals when rain is interrupted by oppressive heat.
While there’s nothing ominous about humidity itself—beyond the annoyance of sweating through your shirt 30 seconds after you step outside—the combination of humidity and heat does carry with it the risk of a nasty lover of high humidity: creeping black mold.
Black mold thrives in environments that are simultaneously damp and relatively warm. Throw into the mix a little bit of darkness, and black mold is more than willing to set up shop. If you have a somewhat leaky roof with less-than-stellar ventilation to disperse heat, your attic or the cavity between your roof and ceiling can become party central for black mold.
Black mold, once established, grows quickly and invasively, and once it releases its reproductive spores, that’s when the health concerns can start knocking at your door—or creeping down through your ceiling, in this case.
Black mold spores don’t affect everyone equally, but they do negatively impact those who have existing respiratory conditions such as asthma, emphysema, or just plain compromised breathing. Black mold symptoms can include sustained cold-like symptoms, perpetual coughing, fever, and just a plain miserable sick existence. If black mold maintains its hold on a household, even worse health conditions can appear.
If you suspect people in your home are suffering from black mold exposure, you should obtain professional black mold removal, remediation and cleaning services as quickly as possible.
