The Growing Mold Problem: Impact of Climate Change on Mold Damage Restoration

In recent years, climate change has become a significant driver of environmental challenges, impacting various industries, including water, fire, and mold damage restoration. As extreme weather events become more frequent and intense, the potential for mold growth in buildings increases, posing health risks and structural concerns. Elite Restoration, a leading company in the restoration industry, is at the forefront of addressing this growing mold problem. This blog post explores the impact of climate change on mold damage restoration and how Elite Restoration is tackling these challenges.

Climate Change and Mold Growth

Climate change manifests in various ways, such as rising temperatures, increased humidity levels, and more frequent storms. These changes create favorable conditions for mold growth in buildings, particularly in areas with inadequate ventilation, moisture intrusion, or water damage. Mold thrives in damp, dark environments, making buildings susceptible to infestations after water-related incidents like floods, leaks, or high humidity levels.

The Health Implications of Mold Exposure

Mold not only damages buildings but also poses serious health risks to occupants. Exposure to mold spores can trigger respiratory issues, allergies, skin irritation, and other health complications, especially in vulnerable individuals such as children, the elderly, and people with respiratory conditions. As climate change contributes to the proliferation of mold, the importance of prompt mold remediation and restoration cannot be overstated.

Frequently Asked Questions

While some homeowners may attempt DIY installation, professional installation ensures proper coverage and safety compliance, minimizing the risk of issues such as settling or compression.

While some tasks can be DIY, such as cleaning and disinfection, professional remediation is recommended for complex issues or extensive contamination.

There are a few different methods of achieving this, the most common is in part with re-roofing the mobile home after blowing insulation into the attic cavity.

Most homeowner's policies cover most water damages, but not all water damages are created equal. There can be a lot of exceptions to coverage depending on the intricacies of your policy. This is why it's a good idea to be familiar with your policy and call your agent right away when damage occurs.

As with all insurance related questions, the answer is that it depends on your coverage. Usually, though, the answer is yes. While there are some types of water damages that aren't covered by standard policies or reasons your policy might not cover the damage, if the water damage is covered by your policy the drying process will also be covered.

A good portion of water damage can be prevented by proper household maintenance. Routine plumbing maintenance, as well as sump pump and appliance maintenance, are effective ways to avoid preventable damages. If you live in a cold climate, preparing your home for the winter can also help avoid damage. Finally, it's a good idea to regularly check the exterior of your home, particularly your roof, for damage to ensure water isn't unexpectedly leaking into your home.

Seal any potential entry points, such as gaps in the roof or vents, and trim overhanging tree branches.

DIY soot removal is not recommended. Commercially available products can actually cause permanent damage to surfaces. Soot itself is primarily oil-based, but that residue also contains toxic, possibly biohazard contaminants.

Identifying the source of the water damage is one of the first steps in both the insurance claim process and before beginning to dry out and repair the damaged areas. After all, if you replace a sagging, wet ceiling that was caused by a roof leak but don't fix the roof, too, the next rainstorm will start the cycle all over again. The buckling to your hardwood floor could be caused by a leaking pipe. We will pinpoint the exact cause of your water damage and make sure the source is repaired. We make sure your restoration job is done right the first time.

We utilize a state-of-the-art blower door system that depressurizes the home and helps us track down exactly where the leaks are specifically in location. They are not where you usually think they are. Many leaks are present in the crawlspace and the attic (HVAC system included). These are the main focus areas in a weatherization job.
