ROOF REPAIRS PREVENT MOLD
Mold in South Florida is a serious issue. Roof repairs can go a long way in preventing the spread of mold in your home or business. Damaged or clogged gutters can trap water, sending it in search of other ways out. Even the tiniest crack or hole can be an area of concern as one tiny drop of water can begin a process that can spread rapidly throughout any building. At the first sign of a water spot or leak, necessary steps such as roof repairs must be taken, to prevent the growth and spreading of mold. This can be as simple as cleaning your gutters and checking them and your roof tiles for damage. If roof repairs are needed, they should be performed as soon as possible.
WHAT IS MOLD?
Mold is a type of fungi that digests (eats) the material it is growing on. Indoors, mold can be found on carpet, wood, paper, insulation, clothes, leather, drywall, and food. Most of all, mold must have moisture to develop and thrive. A leaky roof can be its best friend because wherever there is standing water, mold can grow. That is why it is so vital to perform roof repairs as soon as possible. Mold is responsible for many health conditions, some of which can be extremely toxic. The longer this condition goes untreated, the more difficult it will be to eradicate. Simple roof repairs can protect the health of your family.
