THE DANGERS OF MOLD
The Environmental Protection Agency states that mold can grow and thrive in nearly all kinds of conditions. As long as moisture, oxygen, and mold spores are present, mold will develop. Because of this, mold can form in areas that easily hold moisture like pipes, wood, drywall, concrete, and underneath carpets. Mold effects building materials by eating away at whatever it grows on and can do serious damage to those materials. Along with varying health conditions that follow a mold infection, mold can destroy the structural integrity of properties over time.
CATEGORIES OF WATER THAT CAUSES MOLD GROWTH
Category 1 is the most mild of the classifications, as it originates from a clean source and does not pose a threat if consumed or exposed.
Ex: Burst water pipes and overflowing sinks.
Ex.: Overflowing water from a toilet bowl.
Ex: Flooding from rivers or seas, and sewage.
