Facts About Mold Contamination & Removal
Mold can become a serious problem in homes, office buildings, healthcare facilities, residential housing buildings, daycares, schools, commercial buildings, and industrial buildings where there are high levels of humidity or water leaks. Mold can grow on nearly any surface including in unseen places including inside walls, ceilings, or flooring. If you believe that you may have a mold problem in your building, it is important to contact a professional mold remediation company to learn more about removing mold safely and effectively.

Health Effects of Mold
There are a variety of species of mold that exist both indoors and out. While the type of mold commonly referred to as Black Mold is the only toxic type of mold, all of the common types of mold have the potential to cause health complications in both children and adults. Common health problems caused by the exposure to and inhalation of mold range from cold and flu-like symptoms to more serious pneumonia-like symptoms. Individuals who have a weakened immune system or who suffer from allergies or asthma are likely to develop more severe symptoms from exposure to mold.
