Carver Mold Control
Set between Middleboro and Plymouth, the Town of Carver has in many ways been formed by the prevalence of swamplands. Its source of commerce, both historically and in the present day, and its ability to maintain a rural character can be traced to its topography. The Mold Pros cover Caver Mold removal.
Originally settled in 1660 as part of the Town of Plympton, Carver was the site of one of the first ironworks – Pope’s Point Furnace – which opened in 1732. The swamplands of Carver were laden with iron ore which, at the time, was in high demand for its use in making cooking tools. As the demand for iron ore began to wane late in the 1800s, the people of Carver began utilizing the swamps to grow cranberries. The first cranberry farms were started in 1870 and by 1940 Carver was the largest producer of cranberries in the world. The swamps and bogs of Carver are also unable to sustain buildings of any kind, so its population density has remained lower than neighboring towns.
While the town’s swamplands continue to produce tons of the popular and profitable red berries, they also make create high levels of humidity which can lead to unwanted mold.
For many people, mold is simply an unattractive inconvenience which needs nothing more than the occasional cleaning. But for others, living or working in a home or business with mold can lead to a variety of medical concerns. Studies have linked mold exposure to an array of medical issues ranging from sinus pressure and coughing to more severe medical problems such as muscle and joint pain, anxiety, depression, fatigue and memory loss.
It’s not uncommon for mold to thrive unseen; in insulation behind walls, in crawlspaces and attics, and under sinks and carpeting. You also can’t see airborne mold spores. So even if you can’t visually confirm the presence of mold, it’s possible to experience its negative health effects.
The three mold types most commonly found in Carver and the surrounding area are Stachybotrys, Aspergillus and Penicillium. Mold is able to thrive in virtually any home, regardless of its age or design. So what does all this mean to a Carver homeowner?
If a building contains Sheetrock, which is found in virtually every home built since World War II, mold – specifically Stachybotrys – is always a concern. All of the types of mold common in Carver can also grow in fiberglass insulation; the newer the home, the more insulation it has, so the greater potential health hazard. And while a new, draft-free home is more energy-efficient, insufficient circulation can lead to a higher mold level.
If you see mold growing in your home, or if you suspect someone in your home or business is suffering from toxic mold symptoms, even without mold being visually present, we encourage you to schedule an appointment for a mold inspection. We’ll do a thorough mold assessment and, if found, present you with a customized mold remediation plan. Mold Pros offers green options for eradicating mold and financing options are also available.
