Mold Removal FAQ's
What is mold?
Mold is a fungus that grows in moist environments. It thrives on materials made of cellulose and water, such as paper, drywall, carpeting, and other things. Molds have been linked to medical issues including allergic responses and respiratory problems.
How does mold affect my health?
Mold, like mildew, is a fungus that may be dangerous if it grows in your home. Mold spores and other mold components are present if mold grows within your house. The kind of mold determines the degree of health problems you might experience. Molds produce allergens (substances that can induce allergies), irritants, and some cases, potentially toxic substances (mycotoxins). Most common health complaints include: allergies and other respiratory problems like bronchitis, pneumonia, and asthma.
The mold type influences the health consequences. Mold allergy is typical after exposure. Sneezing, runny nose, red eyes, and skin rash are all common responses (dermatitis). People who are allergic to mold will experience symptoms that are mold-specific, which means they will only have negative reactions to the sorts of mold to which they are allergic.
Should I remove mold or call a mold remediation company?
Mold removal experts generally advocate that mold be eradicated by a professional mold removal company. Mold removals professionals are educated in the application of mold treatment procedures such as enclosure and air cleaning. The majority of mold growth is hidden from view behind walls or above ceilings, making it difficult to detect and assess the extent of the problem.
What mold test kit can I use to test my home for mold?
Swab a surface with one of these mold kits, then submit the mold samples in the provided container. The lab tests the mold samples and sends back a mold analysis.

How much mold does it take to make someone sick?
The quantity of mold required for an allergic reaction is very tiny, about the size of an eraser on a pencil. Mold that makes you sick has to be small, and the mold needed to create someone else sick is equally as tiny. Nausea, diarrhea, headaches, coughing, and eye irritation are all symptoms of mold poisoning.
How does mold cause property damage?
Mold spores are released into the air that may be inhaled by people, allowing mold to grow on materials such as wood studs or paper. Some mold is able to establish itself and expand unchecked. This mold can cause damage to the building materials or household goods it is attacking.
How moldy is my house?
The best way to know if your property is infested with mold is to either test it or clear all mold growth.

A physical inspection is the best way to know if your home has a mold issue.
How do mold spores get into the air?
Mold spores are not always visible to the naked eye. Mold colonies continuously release hundreds of mold spores into the indoor environment, and the mold spores may be found floating in the air, on shelves, and molding.
What are mold spores?
Mold spores are single-celled microorganisms that allow mold to reproduce. Mold generates millions of mold spores from each mold colony throughout the Mold’s life cycle. The mold spore is completely alive until it comes into touch with a surface where mold growth is not feasible. Once the mold spore makes contact with a suitable condition, either an infested material or a warm damp environment, mold starts growing.
How do I know if my home has mold?
Mold cannot be detected unless it has developed to a significant extent. You might suspect mold if you detect any of the following: mold odors, unexplained respiratory health issues, or persistent mold-related allergy symptoms such as allergies, asthma, or sinusitis. Mold growth on surfaces, mold development in appliances or items, and/or deteriorating building materials are other factors to consider.
How does mold get in a house?
Mold may develop in a home’s structure if there is water seepage from roofs, siding, or plumbing.

The mold formation might be obscured by drywall or wood molding.
How many types of mold are there?
Mold is a worldwide problem that is difficult to eliminate. Mold exists in millions of different species, and it evolves and changes on a regular basis. Mold spores develop as filaments inside a mold colony. Mold mycelium, on the other hand, comprises at least two mold types: mold spores and mold mycelium.
What is the difference between mold and mildew?
Mold and mildew are two types of mold, although they belong to different genera. Mildew is not as dangerous as mold. Mildew does not create mycotoxins, one of the poisons produced by mold. Mold has a fuzzy appearance and forms colonies, but mildew is single and does not form colonies.
