Mold can be found almost anywhere; it can grow on virtually any organic substance, as long as moisture and oxygen are present. There is mold that can grow on wood, paper, carpet, foods,andinsulation. Mold removalshould be done immediately when detected, since it is bad for your health. When excessive moisture accumulates in buildings or on building materials, moldgrowth will often occur, particularly if the moisture problem remains undiscovered or unaddressed. It is impossible to eliminate all mold and mold spores in the indoor environment. However, mold growth can be controlled indoors by controllingmoisture indoors.
Sincemold requires water to grow, it is important to prevent moisture problems in buildings. Moisture problems can have many causes, including uncontrolledhumidity. Some moisture problems in buildings have been linked to changes in building construction practices during the 1970s, 80s, and 90s. Some of these changes have resulted in buildings that are tightly sealed, but may lack adequate ventilation, potentially leading tomoisture buildup. Building materials, such as drywall, may not allow moisture to escape easily. Moisture problems may includeroof leaks, landscaping or gutters that direct water into or under the building, and unvented combustion appliances. Delayed maintenance or insufficient maintenance are also associated withmoisture problems in schools and large buildings. Moisture problems in portable classrooms and other temporary structures have frequently been associated withmoldproblems. Let us inspect your home so we can implement our mold removal techniques now.

Why is mold growing in my home? Molds are part of the natural environment
Why Test for Mold? Mold, the hitchhiker, is being aggressively spread throughout the world by humans' traveling and living patterns. We have created millions of square feet of pristine living conditions for molds and we pick up mold spores and bring them home with us every day. All houses will harbor molds and some houses are friendlier to molds than others. All houses need to be monitored for mold growth as part of the maintenance procedures for the house. When any mold or mildew is present, more will come. Only through inspection and testing can it be determined if molds are present and if the subject property is showing signs of mold and mildew friendliness.
Inspecting for Mold Allergies and sickness due to indoor air quality issues are increasing dramatically. More than 5% of all construction lumber manufactured each year in the United States is used to replace wood that has decayed in service. Allergies and sickness due to indoor air quality, damage to wood-frame buildings by mildew, mold, staining fungi, and decay fungi is entirely preventable. The first step in prevention is inspection and testing.
Mold is Here to Stay
Mold is a competitive species for real estate, molds live and prosper
in the same environment as we do. The houses we live in are wonderful
environments for mold. All houses need regular inspections for mold
along with other periodic preventative maintenance inspections. Before
fungi can colonize, four requirements must be met: air, livable
temperature, moisture, and food. Humidity and water leaks are the cause
of most mold infestations. Leaks being the easiest to spot are the first
indications that mold may be present, however unusual activities may
upset the humidity averages in the house and mechanical spaces and allow
mold to establish itself.
