What’s Lurking Behind and Inside Your Walls?
Without any visible signs, there could be a lot going on behind and inside the walls of your home. Whether its mold, asbestos, or even residual water damage, these are all cause for alarm, mainly because of the potential for property damage and personal harm. In many cases, none of these situations may even be visible, and symptoms may be hard to pin down. The good news is that remediation is possible, with accurate diagnosis and viable options for repairs and restoration.
Old loose-fill asbestos may still be present in attics, lofts, and wall cavities, depending on the age of a home. Regardless of the extent of coverage, material that contains asbestos is dangerous. The most dangerous is when the material is disturbed - it can release harmful fibers that pose health risks when inhaled. Sometimes, asbestos is hard to detect, making for serious hidden dangers.
Mold is sneaky – it can hide practically anywhere, and is especially prevalent in areas that have high moisture levels and concentrations of humidity. A mold infestation has the potential to cause health problems that range from mild to severe. Indeed, when mold is a long-standing issue it can quickly lead to “sick building syndrome”. Mold will require professional remediation.
Residual water damage can impact the structure of a home, and affect the health and well being of residents. When water damage compromises structural materials, it also provides the ideal environment for mold to grow and spread. As it is, the negative effects of mold are well known, so professional remediation is absolutely necessary to clean, repair and restore the affected areas.
