Mold is a fungal growth that is hard to see in small doses. It aids with the decomposition of leaves, wood and plants. When mold growth is visible, it can appear black, blue or green in color. Spores can become airborne and create a harmful environment.
Serious illness can be caused by the inhalation of mold spores. If left untreated, mold can continue growing inside your body. Ingesting mold can lead to lung damage, brain damage, cancer or even death. Mold can form and grow extremely quickly and can remain undetected for long periods of time. Common trouble spots include basements, bathrooms, garages and anywhere else exposed to moisture.
Our investigative services includes mold screening. Some common causes of mold are due to everyday tasks left unnoticed.
