When moving forward with mold remediation, it is important to understand some basic facts about mold in general:
- Mold is present almost everywhere: indoors and outdoors. There is no such thing as completely eliminating mold: mold remediation simply reduces the amount of mold spores present within a structure to a safe level.
- Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.
- Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
- Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
