Mold Remediation & Mold Removal Services
Finding mold in your home or your place of business can be a scary situation.
Molds are microscopic organisms that thrive in places where sufficient moisture is available, both indoors and outdoors. They also tend to have negative health effects, which makes their immediate removal a necessity. Molds can occur almost anywhere, especially beneath surfaces that have been subjected to water damage like floors, walls and ceilings. Mold is a type of fungus, and there are over 100,000 species of fungus that have been identified
Mold needs three things to grow: darkness, moisture and food. Two of that trio already exists in your home: darkness and food. When a water intrusion occurs, the trio is complete. Water damage to your home or office building can result in the formation of mold growth within 24 hours. Prolonged exposure to persistent moisture enables microbes to flourish.
Mold is dangerous and can cause serious health problems. Molds produce allergens which cause allergic reactions, and in some cases toxic substances that can cause death especially in children and individuals with weak immune systems. In the event you discover mold in your home, you should act quickly. If left untreated, these microbes will grow quickly to dangerous levels, eventually contaminating the indoor air and create health risks for those who live and work there.
