Mold

Mold exists naturally almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors. There is no such thing as a mold-free environment.

Remediation is all about putting the mold level back to normal.

Mold is a fungus that needs water to grow. If you have mold, that means there is a water incursion in either wall interiors, basements, kitchens, bathrooms, crawl spaces, attics. It travels through the air as tiny spores which immediately spread to other areas and may cause allergic reactions and diseases.

BUT… WHAT DOES THAT HAVE TO DO WITH ME?

you will need to find the source of moisture.

IT IS IMPORTANT TO CONSIDER hiring a different company to perform your mold inspection and your mold remediation

ONLY AFTER THE SOURCE of moisture is determined and remediated can the mold be treated and removed
