Understanding Mold Damage In RI

Mold is the resulting effect of letting water damage or any type of water leak sit for too long in one spot. In some cases, mold can be easily detected, but you never know what is going on inside of your walls. The main issue with mold damage in RI is that it can grow and spread to other areas of your home, causing more damage and more money out of your pocket.

Types of Mold Damage

Mold can enter the home in many ways; through the air from open windows or vents, or even attaching itself to your clothing or your pet’s fur. There are three types of mold:

  • Allergenic mold that produces allergies and allergic reactions like asthma attacks.
  • Pathogenic Mold causes health problems for those with acute illnesses.
  • Toxigenic mold produces toxic substances that can be extremely dangerous and even deadly. This mold is also known as “toxic mold” or “black mold.”
