Mold Services

Posted by ARC Insulation June 10th, 2024

Mold can be found anywhere in the world, in every climate, at any time of the year. It has been around for millions of years and it’s not unusual to find mold throughout a building. However, discovering mold in your Chicagoland home requires immediate action for mold removal or mold remediation because there are numerous species—some of which can be harmful to your health.

When mold gets into the unseen areas of your home—like your attic or basement—it can affect your insulation, making it less effective and creating indoor air quality issues. At ARC Insulation, we offer the convenience of working with one contractor for both mold solutions and insulation services. Call us at the first sign of mold and we can inspect the severity of the issue in your home and provide a clear path to a long-lasting resolution. Some common signs of mold intrusion are:

  • Visible mold on surfaces

  • Musty smells in enclosed spaces

  • Wet insulation

  • Water leaks

The Dangers of Mold

Mold thrives in moisture, which makes it easy to grow in underinsulated areas of your home—like behind drywall or in attics and basements. These areas are the most susceptible to mold growth in Naperville because the wide range of temperatures between indoors and outdoors causes increased condensation levels. Moldy insulation increases indoor air quality issues and will almost always require insulation removal.

Mold can be especially dangerous because certain species can release harmful allergens and irritants causing health problems, including:

  • Increased asthma symptoms
  • Throat irritation
  • Lung inflammation

Mold growth can also create structural issues in your home if it reaches anywhere in its support system—like the foundation or ceiling joists. Mold can grow on any organic material and is common in Chicagoland homes, especially older ones with vermiculite insulation. If you suspect mold growth in your home, it’s important to schedule a mold inspection as soon as possible. Additionally, if your home or building experiences a flood or severe water leak, it’s always a good idea to check for mold growth before it becomes a serious issue that requires intensive and costly repairs.
