A Largo condo owner contacted I Destroy Mold in regards to a black mold removal project in their Largo condo. The Largo condo experienced a small water leak on their water heater. Over time this water seeped over the pan and into the walls surrounding the water heater. The owner of this Largo condo lives up North for most of the year, and migrates to Florida once winter hits in their primary home. Upon arriving in their Largo condo, they were greeted by a large amount of black mold.
Black mold and other types of mold can be toxic to the human body depending on the level of mold as well as the sensitivity of the person exposed to it. The elderly, the very young and those with immune system issues are most affected by mold and high amounts of mold spores. If you see mold in your home, we recommend contacting a professional in order to have it removed. After the effects of a water leak or water damage, mold can begin to grow or form in just 24-48 hours of a water damage or water leak issue.
