Mold growing inside a building is a serious situation that requires immediate action by professional company. It is a common problem for home and business owners to have because it can occur any time there has been a water leak, flooding, condensation, or poor ventilation. Once alive and growing, microbial growth can cause chronic respiratory and sinus illness in building occupants.

What Is Mold & Where Does It Come From?

Mold is a fungal microorganism that can grow almost anywhere. These microscopic spores occur naturally in the environment and move through the air, where they can enter homes and other buildings through openings, ventilation systems, and even on people and their belongings. When mold growth is very heavy, it can appear in the form of black, green, and brown stains or splotches.

What attracts mold most is excessive moisture. Areas of your property that are damp or humid can be prime spaces for mold to thrive. The mold spores attach to wet surfaces and feed on the proteins and nutrients found on material like drywall and wood
