Mold growth is always a frustrating sight for homeowners and business owners because of the many problems it can cause. Mold can cause a dangerous amount of damage in a home and exposure to mold can lead to serious health issues. It typically appears as a result of water damage or excess moisture because the mold spores need a source of moisture to grow, and it feeds on building materials including drywall, wallpaper, wood, carpeting, ceiling tiles, and insulation. Materials affected by mold growth will experience discoloration, but eventually the damage will leave these materials structurally unstable. It is important to deal with mold growth quickly to prevent structural damage and reduce the risk to your health.

Our technicians will address the source of the moisture that caused the mold growth in the first place, and uncover all mold growth on your property, including hidden mold. We use advanced remediation techniques to ensure that all mold is removed and that it will not return.
Important Facts About Mold
Mold is a type of fungus that appears indoors in areas that can provide it with a moisture source and organic food source. The reason mold can appear at virtually any time is because the spores are a natural presence in the air, and they will form into mold growth upon finding the right conditions. Mold often uses cellulose, an organic material contained within building materials like wood and drywall, as its food source which is why it can cause serious damage to the surfaces it affects. Mold can eat away at these surfaces enough to cause structural damage, and it can disperse its spores and spread the growth to new areas. When you discover mold, it is also possible that there is hidden mold somewhere on your property.
You must call a professional to deal with the mold removal because mold removal is dangerous if you are not trained or equipped to do it properly. The following facts about mold will help you understand why you should call a mold remediation professional:
- Those exposed to mold may experience allergic reactions including coughing, skin irritation, and headaches among others and more serious symptoms like asthma and respiratory infections. Attempting to remove mold yourself will increase your risk of experiencing these health issues.
