Mold is a type of fungus that consists of small organisms found almost everywhere. They can be black, white, orange, green or purple. Outdoors, mold plays an important role in nature, breaking down dead leaves, plants and trees. Molds thrive on moisture and reproduce using tiny, lightweight spores that travel through the air. You are exposed to mold every day. If you are concerned about mold problems with your Alpharetta home, do not hesitate to call the experts at Alpha Pressure Washing to come out for a free mold consultation.
Mold-allergy symptoms can be intensified by a high concentration of mold spores, and even non-prolonged exposure can induce severe symptoms when the amount present is above a certain range. This elevated spore count is determined by an inspector when the indoor mold-spore levels are higher than those naturally present outside.
While there certainly are pollen seasons, mold can be a problem any time of year. That is because moisture is everywhere. Outdoor mold grows on rotting logs and fallen leaves, in compost piles and on grasses and grains. Unlike pollens, molds do not die with the first frost in late fall or early winter. They just stop growing and lay dormant during this time.
Whether it is the slimy black spots on your outdoor deck or the green patina that grows across siding or other outdoor surfaces, household mold is more than unsightly. In some cases, mold around your home can make you sick, especially if you have allergies or asthma.
