Signs of Mold Growth and Risk Factors
Mold spores are present throughout the world. Following leaks or periods of high humidity, fungal spores can spring to life and cause catastrophic structural damage. Additionally, some species, such as Stachybotrys chartarum, also called black mold, are linked to chronic health concerns, including headache, breathing difficulties, and flu-like symptoms.
Storm damage, condensation, poor drainage, malfunctioning gutters, and plumbing leaks are some of the most common causes of mold damage affecting carpets, drywall, wallpaper, and upholstered surfaces. Due to the risks involved and the high probability of cross contamination, The Environmental Protection Agency recommends professional mold remediation services for mold growth covering more than 10 square feet. Our experts are prepared to handle building-wide contamination that has affected multiple structural systems.
What to Expect During the Mold Remediation Process

Our disaster restoration technicians are here to assist you every step of the way from the initial inspection through completion.
