Mold Damage Mitigation Services and Mold Removal Specialist.
How can you detect mold in your home?
If you notice musty odor or see visible black or white specks along damp or moist walls or surfaces, you may have mold. Some mold may be invisible behind walls, but can still be active and cause house mold damage as well as health problems. Moreover, even dry or dead mold can release toxins and cause health issues. If you had previous water damage issues from leaks and floods, you may not be aware that mold may be growing in your house. Any home components or furnishings damaged by previous leaks or plumbing accidents could be growing mold.

The Problem with Mold
Mildew (mold in its early stages) and molds grow on wood products, ceiling tiles, cardboard, wallpaper, carpets, drywall, fabric, plants, food, insulation, and other organic material. Mold colonies can start to grow on a damp surface within 24 to 48 hours. They reproduce via spores that travel through the air. Molds digest organic material, eventually destroying the material they grow on and then spread to destroy adjacent organic material.
According to Environmental Protection Agency, “During a flood cleanup, the indoor air quality in your home or office may appear to be the least of your problems. However, failure to move contaminated material and to reduce moisture and humidity can present serious long-term health risks. Standing water and wet material are a breeding ground for micro-organisms, such as viruses, bacteria, and mold.”
