  • Why Do I Have a Mold Problem in my Property?

    Outdoors mold helps break down organic matter such as leaves, grass, and dead branches. This is an essential part of the growth/death cycle in nature. However, indoors mold is unhealthy. Spores are only visible under a microscope and float through a building. When the spores land on a moist area, they start to grow. Mold starts to grow in the presence of moisture within 24-48 hours. If your property has a moisture problem, it is essential to know where the moisture is coming from and to take the proper steps to solve the problem. Remember mold can destroy a property because it devours cellulose based materials such as wood, cloth, and paper. Eventually, mold can compromise the basic structure of a property; the joists.

  • Does Mold Cause Health Problems?

    Mold produces substances called allergens. Some types of molds produce mycotoxins (poisons) which can cause serious diseases such as cancer. Molds can cause reactions such as:

    • Asthma Attacks
    • Sneezing
    • Runny Nose
    • Red Eyes
    • Skin Rashes
    • Organic Dust Toxic Syndrome
    • Immune System Suppression
    • High Fever
    • Flu Like Symptoms
    • Gastrointestinal Illness
    • Memory Loss
    • Nausea
    • Dizziness
    • Organ Damage

  • How Can I Eliminate Mold?

    Mold is a moisture problem. The inspection will include locating the source of the moisture problem. Moisture problems can be caused by high humidity, poor ventilation systems, failed basement systems, or structural problems allowing water to enter. Structural problems could be a plumbing leak, failed roof, or other related issues. Mold can grow in over 60% relative humidity in a building. It is absolutely necessary to fix the source of the moisture problem. This may involve fixing the roof or other part of the structure, adding the proper ventilation system(s), foundation repairs, or other types of repairs that prevent moisture/water from entering the building. Mold can only start growing in the presence of water. Some mold spores will always be found in homes or in dust but they will not grow without water.
