What is Mold?

Before we begin, let's get one thing straight: mold is a natural part of our environment and therefore impossible to completely eliminate. It can enter your home through almost any opening—doors, windows, HVAC systems—and even on you or your pet! Thus it becomes imperative that homeowners take pre-emptive action in order to control the spread of mold and protect their family’s health. When exposed to moisture, these minuscule spores quickly multiply and cause a real issue within days. If you detect an overpowering musty scent, that's the time to take action in order to prevent further damage. Before commencing the mold remediation process, it is essential to locate and correct the water source of your indoor mold infestation. Doing so will help prevent its return in future. To further control any existing growth, make sure to keep humidity levels between 30% - 50%.
