What is Mold?

Mold is a type of fungus that is made up of small organisms. They can be black, white, orange, green, or purple.  Mold thrives on moisture and reproduces by means of tiny, lightweight spores traveling through the air. You are actually exposed to mold everyday in very small amounts which are usually harmless. When mold is growing on in or on your walls, mold spores are released into the air where and can be inhaled by anyone around them. Breathing in too much mold can lead to serious health problems.

Action Levels for Mold and Health Concerns

Mold is a serious health risk. If mold is discovered in your home we will put together a action plan for you to have the mold removed as soon as possible and get you back to normal. Continuing to live with mold in your home can cause serious health issues including asthma and lung cancer especially with young ones.

What Types of Mold Tests Do We Perform?

2.       Mold Sampling

Air samples will be gathered.  We may also sampling the inner walls which collects air from behind the walls.  We use the best equipment on the mark to provide expert results.  We may also take surface samples, large samples etc for further testing.

How Does Mold Grow in Homes?

Molds reproduce by tiny spores in the air. These spores are invisible to humans and are in the outdoor and indoor air. Mold can begin growing indoors when mold spores land on surfaces that are moist and wet. They begin to thrive in high humidity situations such as basements and sometimes garages that arent air controlled. Without moisture mold can not grow.
