What is mold, and
where is it found?
Mold is a fungus that grows where moisture has accumulated. It reproduces by means of tiny spores that travel through the air. There are several different kinds of mold, the most toxic and hazardous of which is black mold.
Since mold requires moisture in order to grow, you’re most likely to find mold in damp places such as bathrooms, kitchens, laundry rooms, basements, and crawl spaces.
Excess moisture may be present due to improper ventilation, anywhere water is present including water fixtures, possible water leaks or flooding. Other places that could be susceptible to mold growth include but are not limited to walls, floors, appliances, carpet, or furniture.
How harmful is mold and how is mold safely removed?
Exposure to mold, especially black mold, can pose serious harm and health risks. Common symptoms include headaches, dizziness, nausea, throat irritation, coughing, wheezing, eye irritation, rashes, asthma, and allergic reactions. No two reactions to mold are the same and the extent of exposure and an individual’s level of sensitivity will determine how you and your body react.
When present in any residential, commercial, industrial, or institutional buildings, mold must be removed. Physically removing mold contamination from your building is the primary form of remediation and mold removal will allow your building to return to normal, safe conditions.
