While most are quick to assume the black streaks on their roof, siding, deck or patio is dirt or even mold… oftentimes it’s the less threatening wannabe; algae! That’s the good news! The bad news is that mold and mildew are still very prevalent and can wreak expensive havoc on your home. Don’t worry though, all different types of growth on your home are treatable!
So what’s the difference between algae and mold? Well for one, mold is much more dangerous and difficult to remove – mostly because it is often caused by deeper issues in your home. Algae is simply a plant enjoying a life full of sunshine and moisture on your roof. Luckily, algae is much more common than mold. What do they have in common? They are both living organisms that can be treated similarly using a safe soft wash process that kills off all growth in just a day’s work.
Mold generally occurs in damp areas. It is, at best, an unsightly nuisance and, at worst, a health hazard. If you have mold growing on concrete driveways, brick walkways or paving stone patios around your home, the first thing to do is to make sure your children and pets do not have access to the area until you can remove the mold.
Mold spores can cause a variety of physical symptoms, including shortness of breath, aggravated asthma, sinus congestion, coughing, itchy eyes and much more.
Of course, there is a difference between common molds (like we see on food and sometimes on structures) and the toxic black mold that we hear about on the news. If you think you have toxic black mold growing on your paving stones, concrete or bricks, it is best to bring in the professional mold remediation experts here at Suncoast Surface Restoration who can safely remove this potential health hazard.
