Mold Assessment is the process of identifying the location and extent of the mold hazard in a structure.
Mold Remediation is the process of removal and/or cleanup of mold from an indoor environment.
Molds reproduce by spores, which can be carried by air currents. When these spores land on a moist surface that is suitable for life, they begin to grow. Substantial mold growth occurs where there is a source of water (including invisible humidity), a source of food, and a substrate capable of sustaining growth. Common building materials, such as plywood, drywall, carpets, and carpet padding are food for molds.
Flooding, leaky roofs, indoor plumbing problems, cracked foundations, insufficient bathroom exhaust vents, and simply not having "rain leaders" installed on your down spouts can lead to mold growth inside. Good maintenance schedules and simple precautions can go a long way to prevent water damage to your property.
Mold exposures have a variety of health effects depending on the person. Some people are more sensitive to mold than others. Prolonged exposure to mold can cause a number of health issues such as: nasal and sinus congestion, eye irritation, respiratory problems, cough and/or throat irritation, skin irritation, headache and sneezing. Some molds also produce mycotoxins that can pose serious health risks to humans and animals.
