Call Lighthouse Disaster Services for Mold Damage Cleanup
You will often hear mildew and mold used interchangeably, as they are both organisms known to thrive in moist conditions. However, when either impacts your home, it can drastically differ in how it appears and propagates. The good news is that Lighthouse Disaster Services is the number one team in the Baton Rouge area for all your mold damage remediation needs.
What is Mold?
Mold is a broad term describing microscopic fungi species known to grow in hyphae (multicellular filaments).
- Microbial growth thrives on organic matter; paper, fabric, drywall, wood, and cardboard are some standard hosts. It will likely appear in bathrooms, basements, and other spaces with untreated water damage.
- There are over 100k mold species that vary in appearance. Some varieties appear gray, green, or black with a slimy, raised, or fuzzy look.
- Known as burrowing fungi, it can grow inside many porous materials, making elimination difficult. Hiring professionals for remediation is best to get the desired results.
- The musty odor stemming from mold is MVOCs or microbial volatile organic compounds. Molds will emit these musty odors, while mildew does not.
