Mold Removal and Remediation in your Home or Business
Molds are fungi that can be found both indoors and outdoors. No one knows how many species of fungi exist but estimates range from tens of thousands to perhaps three hundred thousand or more. They can grow on virtually any organic substance, as long as moisture and oxygen are present. There are molds that can grow on wood, paper, carpet, foods, and insulation.
When excessive moisture accumulates in buildings or on building materials, mold growth can occur, particularly if the moisture problem goes unaddressed for some time. It is impossible to eliminate mold and mold spores outdoors. But indoor mold can be effectively controlled. By deploying proven mold removal and prevention strategies, indoor mold can be managed. To fully assess your mold situation, it is best to hire highly trained restoration specialists like SERVPRO that can conduct mold tests to determine the exact type of mold you are dealing with.
