Mold isn't only a health concern; it may also severely damage the structure of a house, office, or other building. Mold is a type of fungi which thrives in moist, warm environments. It can grow on almost any type of surface, including wood, paper, carpet, food, and insulation. When mold spores land on a wet or damp surface, they begin to grow. Mold can cause a musty or mildewy smell. It can also cause health problems, such as allergies and respiratory infections.

What are Mold Damage Services?

Mold damage services include inspection, testing, and removal of mold-infested materials. Mold damage services may also include repairs to the structure of the house or building, as well as HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) system cleaning.

How Do I Remove Mold?

While removing visible mold from a hard surface with a bleach solution is easy, mold growing in porous materials, such as wood or drywall, is much more difficult to remove. Mold-infested porous materials should be removed and disposed of by a professional.

If mold growth is suspected in your home or another property, contact us for a free consultation. We will inspect the premises, and if mold is found, we will develop a remediation plan tailored to your specific needs.

Is Mold Harmful?

Mold can cause various health problems, such as allergies, respiratory infections, and skin irritation. Some of the different strains of mold, which cause health problems, are Stachybotrys chartarum (black mold), Aspergillus, Penicillium, Cladosporium, Fusarium, and Alternaria. Anyone experiencing health problems caused by mold should see a doctor immediately and have the mold professionally tested.

What are Common Signs of Mold?

While it may not always be visible, here are some of the signs of a mold problem:

  • Musty or mildewy smell
  • Visible mold growth
  • Health problems, such as allergies, respiratory infections, and skin irritation
  • Walls and ceilings with black, green, or brown stains
