Mold Control

One of the worst effects of water damage is mold growth. Mold can begin growing within 24 hours of excess moisture resulting from flooding or a plumbing emergency.  Mold can cause a number of health problems and structural damage to your home. If you have found mold on your property, contact a representative from Shine Student Services immediately for useful tips on how to remove it or to request a free quote for the treatment. The sooner you can rid your home of mold and minimize or avoid the following effects of indoor mold:

Negative Health Effects
The biggest threat of mold growing on siding or near aeration areas is the potential side effects of mold exposure. Prolonged exposure to mold can result in many negative side effects, including nausea, dizziness, breathing difficulties and even immune disorder. If you think there could be mold in your home, you owe it to yourself and your family to schedule immediate mold removal services from Shine.

Structural Damage 
In addition to the negative health effects, mold can also put your family at risk by affecting the structural integrity of your home. Wooden structural materials can deteriorate easily when surrounded by mold, which means important support beams and studs behind the walls and above the ceiling can eventually crumble if mold growth goes undetected. Requesting a quote from Shine will help you get informed on the possible threats surrounding your home.

Selling Difficulties 
If you’re thinking about selling your home and have an unaddressed mold problem, think again. Homebuyers routinely have mold inspections performed on properties they intend to purchase before signing anything or putting any money down. If mold is discovered in your home, it can either scare away the buyers or significantly lower your asking price. Either way, mold in your home will eventually cost you a lot of money. For that reason, Shine recommends having a complete inspection done by one of our specialist to assure that no surprises are found throughout the buying process.
