What is Mold?
Mold is often spread when a surface or area is especially damp. The microorganism does occur in various forms and some of these forms prove to be helpful to the environment. One of its functions is to break down dead plant and animal organisms. Other forms of the fungi however, can be a threat to your family's health. How can you tell the difference?
Symptoms of Mold Presence
Because mold is a naturally occurring environmental agent, it is not possible to remove all mold from a structure or quickly tell if it is harmful. However, the following signs of mold growth can help you tell whether it may have an impact on your health:
- A noticeably musty odor
- Water stained and especially saturated surfaces over a long period
- Warped flooring and/or rotting wood
Our Mold Remediation Process
Each mold occurrence varies in its form and areas it has spread. Thus, our skilled technicians individually assess each situation in order to properly treat and remediate the spread of it. Based on the amount of coverage, specially designed equipment may be placed to halt its spreading while a contained cleaning process takes place.
