Common Causes of Mold in Mankato, MN Homes

ServiceMaster of Mankato/Waseca provides mold removal services throughout the Mankato-area.

“Where did all of that mold come from?” It’s not an uncommon question. Most people realize they have some level of mold in their home. They can smell the mildew or musty odor. Yet, many are surprised at the extent of the problem, and few have an idea of where it all started. The sources of mold can range from simple humidity – excess water vapor in enclosed spaces – to an outright and obvious flood. The result is a spore that lands on material it can consume. It turns into a colony of mold that might appear as a black smudge or stain on a section of wallpaper, baseboard, or wood. More often than not, you don’t see it. It’s hidden behind the walls or in dark corners of your basement or crawlspace. Still, it’s there, and it’s growing. To get rid of it, you need a professional mold remediation service to find it, remove it, and restore the area to a clean and safe environment. For residential mold removal and remediation, call ServiceMaster of Mankato and Waseca.

To get back to our original question, the sources of mold are almost endless. Moisture can come from a single source: A tiny water leak or major pipe break, or from a sewer backup or washing machine overflow. The cause may include moisture over time. During humid summer months, trapped air may be enough to dampen wallboard and other surfaces in basements and rooms that are normally cool to the touch. If your air conditioning goes offline for a few days, it may be enough to cause this kind of condensation. Water can also condense on overhead pipes in areas with contrasting temperatures. The water can then drip for days or weeks onto ceiling tile or drywall. Moisture can also develop in interior walls due to ice jams on your roof in winter. Water can be trapped at the edge of the roof and seep down into the insulation.

It takes expertise and experience in mold removal to locate all the mold colonies and repair the damage. ServiceMaster of Mankato and Waseca is your best choice to ensure your home is free and safe from mold. For fast and efficient mold remediation, call us today.
