Many Arizona homeowners mistakenly believe that mold will never become an issue for them because of the state’s consistently dry climate and low humidity. But under the right conditions, the presence of mold can develop and create health hazards for all residents of the house, not to mention damage to the structure of the building. There are two ways that mold damage in Arizona can affect residential buildings.
Hidden Mold Growth
Mold and fungal spores are present in the air even in the dry, desert climate of the American southwest. Although homeowners can’t see them, their presence can aggravate allergies, sinus conditions and respiratory ailments, making the home a toxic place for every member of the family.
The second way that mold can adversely affect a home even when humidity levels are consistently low is undetected leaks of water after a rainfall that can cause mold spores in attics, basements and other hidden places to grow and thrive over a long period of time. Even the smallest roof leak that saturates roofing insulation can become a ticking time bomb that causes mold to grow undetected for years. And if the homeowner doesn’t have a mold damage rider on his homeowner’s insurance policy, any and all damage to the home’s structure or property contents won’t be covered.
