What Is Black Mold?

Mold can be a very scary thing to find in your home or business.  It's important to call in the professionals to remediate the situation when mold is present.  Our first course of action is to do an air quality test to determine the severity of the mold conditions.  Then we work carefully to discover the source and remove and/or clean the surfaces or contents affected.  Our certified technicians know exactly what items must be disposed of properly and which items are able to be safely cleaned.  Once the job is complete the air quality is again tested to be sure all mold spores have been removed properly.

Understanding Mold

When water intrudes into your property, mold growth can start in as little as 48 hours. Consider the following mold facts:

  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
  • Mold spores are microscopic, float along in the air, and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise the mold may return.
  • Mold often produces a strong, musty odor, and that odor can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.
