Mold Removal and Mitigation

Mold can be a very dangerous and deadly problem in your homeMolds are very common in buildings and homes.  Mold will grow in places with a lot of moisture, such as around leaks in roofs, windows, pipes, or where there has been flooding.  Mold grows well on paper products, cardboard, wood products, ceilings tiles, carpet, and pad.  Mold can also grow in dust, paints, wallpaper, insulation, drywall, fabric, and upholstery.

Mold is found both indoors and outdoors.  Mold can enter your home through open doorways, windows, vents, heating, and air conditioning systems.  Mold in the air outside can also attach itself to clothing, shoes, and pets can carry indoors.  When mold spores drop on places where there is excessive moisture, such as where leakage may have occurred in roofs, pipes, walls, plant pots, or where there has been flooding, mold will grow.

Exposure to damp and moldy environments may cause a variety of health effects, or non at all.  Some people are sensitive to molds.  For these people, exposure to molds can lead to symptoms such as stuffy nose, wheezing, and red or itchy eyes and skin.  People with allergies to molds or with asthma may have more intense reactions.
