Right here, you can see photos of many of the places mold might grow in your home, and how our Caltex International mold removal system will set things right.
Mold Loves Crumbly Old Blown Insulation
What you might not know is that old blown insulation in your home is a perfect place for mold to grow. It only takes three things for mold to get a foothold in there. If you have the right temperature, some moisture, and something nutritious for mold to eat, it will grow. Mold grows in the same temperature range that you and l like, and our East End weather makes moist conditions almost a certainty, so that leaves nutrients. Your old blown insulation contains just the sort of food that mold enjoys… dust, dirt, and similar contaminants that make a terrific meal for mold. If that blown insulation was added years ago when Urea-Formaldehyde insulation was popular, it is probably crumbly, and makes a great place for mold to grow. It also means that the insulation is no longer insulating. Its work life has ended. Well, I guess that was the bad news.
