Fungus Treatments in Chesapeake, Virginia
Termite infestation is one of the possible results of having dampened and rotting wood structures in your home. And while this can lead to more damage and costly repairs, fungus growth is another issue that any home or building owner will likely face when there are high moisture levels in their property. Fungi often thrive in places that are warm and moist, as they grow in humid environments such as Hampton Roads. Oftentimes, mold and fungi reproduce when an area is left unchecked after moisture and water problems occur. Leaking roofs, poor indoor plumbing, broken drainage, damp basements and crawl spaces, and improper ventilation for heating and cooling equipment or appliances can cause fluctuating levels of moisture. Given these, it can be difficult to prevent fungus from growing in the corners of your home. The real problem with fungi spreading in your home is the negative effect it can have on your health.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states that there exists around a million and a half species of fungi on this planet, wherein there are around 300 of these that are harmful to people. While most of the common fungi do not present their selves as health hazards, there are some that can compromise the health of our loved ones.
