Toxic mold can develop and bloom within 48 hours of exposure to moisture, often in locations where you can’t see it. Mold will literally grow on any damp surface it can find; walls, carpets, ceiling tiles, and insulation are all common locations. It doesn’t matter where the water comes from; burst or leaking pipes, blocked gutters, inadequate roof ventilation, and even ductwork condensation can all be the source of a mold problem.
A mold infestation poses a risk to your health, your employees, and anyone who spends time in your building. Mold spores circulating in the air cause headaches, respiratory issues, skin irritations, and even memory loss. Buildings also suffer since mold can cause structural elements to corrode.
Removal vs. Remediation
Every building contains a “natural” amount of non-toxic mold. Because mold spores are everywhere, it’s impossible to remove 100% of the mold from any building. The problem occurs when levels of toxic mold get out of hand. When this happens, it’s important to remove all contaminated surfaces and then remediate the moisture’s origins that contributed to mold growth. If the moisture source is not effectively remediated or all the contaminated surfaces are not removed, the mold will return.
