Mold Removal and Remediation
Mold is a troubling issue in homes and buildings for several reasons. Mold colonies can cause considerable damage, including structural damage, and its presence puts the health of those exposed to it in danger. Mold only needs water and a food source to form, with water being the main catalyst of mold growth. In as little as 48 hours, mold can appear in moist or water damaged areas and it will continue to spread until it is removed.

Once the mold is removed, we will repair or replace the damaged materials and address the moisture source that caused the mold to prevent future mold issues.
Problems Caused by Mold
Mold can lead to a range of issues within your property from extensive property damage to health issues. Mold spores are a constant presence in the air which is why mold growth can always form if it finds the right conditions. The main food source for mold is cellulose which is an organic substance found in most building materials including wood and drywall. This means that mold eats away at the surfaces it affects which can cause significant structural damage in time. Mold growth is also likely to spread as mold colonies disperse their spores.
The potential health problems caused by mold are just as troubling. Those exposed to mold may experience allergic reactions such as nasal congestion, coughing, trouble breathing, headaches, skin irritation, and itchy eyes and throat. Prolonged exposure leads to more serious symptoms like respiratory infection and asthma. Those most vulnerable to these health issues include children, seniors, and those with compromised immune systems.
