Types Of Mold
All homes have some degree of mold contamination, whether its a mild mildew problem, or the serious black mold. This is due to many rooms in the house offering ideal growing conditions for mold colonies. Basements, bathrooms, and kitchens all have moisture and dark, cool spaces, which is exactly what mold needs to thrive.
However, there are thousands of species of mold, and not all of them are dangerous. Others release spores that cause immediate discomfort and illness. Molds are divided into three hazard classes:
- Hazard Class A: Extremely dangerous molds that can cause immediate health side effects. This class includes black mold.
- Hazard Class B: Molds that may cause an allergic reaction if people are exposed to them for an extended period of time.
- Hazard Class C: Fungi that cause no known health side effects. They still can damage structures and should be removed if spotted.

Mold Removal & Remediation Process
Although the exact means of eradicating mold will differ from case to case, the basic process remains the same. When addressing mold contamination, we utilize the following steps:
In our inspection phase we will send out one of our mold removal & remediation specialists to observe and assess the extent of the mold in your home or business.
Once we have recorded our observations and assessments of your property, we will immediately begin communicating with your insurance company to ensure that we are all on the same page.
Establishing the extent of the contamination will help us set up proper containment in order to safely begin addressing the mold damage in your property.
Every mold removal and remediation job is different, so it is our job to establish what makes this job unique. This step will include testing for mold types and quantities, as well as preparing a wrtten remediation plan.
Once we’ve established the specifics, we can begin to implement our remediation plan to remove the mold and protect against spore spreading.
Mold spores can grow anywhere in the world, and in most cases, these spores are completely harmless. The spores are microscopic and completely invisible to the naked eye, entering your property in a handful of ways. However, most do not pose an immediate threat until exposed to elevated humidity or excess moisture and organic material.
Once the spores have access to moisture and food, visible mold can begin within the following 24-hours. After the mold has started to grow, the colonies can emit allergens and different irritants that can cause various health effects, such as itchy eyes or watery, congestion, fever, etc. The mold colonies may also emit musty odors which is a big warning sign that mold has infested the property.
