Mold Testing & Removal

When an indoor environment becomes wet and is left unattended for an extended amount of time (sometimes as little as 48 hours) mold growth can occur. And the longer that materials and belongings remain wet, the bigger the mold problem becomes. Every minute that mold growth on building materials remains in a home or office the risks to the occupants health and safety increases.

And here’s why: Mold spores are very tiny and lightweight which allows them to become airborne and travel through the air very easily. And because the spores are so very, very small they can overwhelm the human body’s natural defenses and leave the lungs and the respiratory system at risk of allergies, asthma and infections. The most susceptible individuals to health risks include infants, children, the elderly, and immune compromised individuals such as those undergoing chemotherapy or suffering from liver disease.
