Molds are various species of fungi (simple, microscopic organisms) that are present everywhere both indoors and outdoors. For molds to grow and reproduce, they need only a source of organic material for food, such as leaves, wood, paper and moisture.
While molds are needed to break down debris in the environment, mold and other fungi contamination can pose serious problems in your home or building. Mold and fungus can grow in any area where moisture is present. Molds and fungi are typically found in damp areas such as wall cavities, closed attics, unvented bathrooms, sink cabinets, and other areas where leaks and/or condensation occur. Noticeable indicators of mold or fungal growth include black spots or speckles, often along with a musty or mildewy odor. Mold is damaging to personal property, and also may affect the health of people exposed to it, especially those with asthma or allergies.
When extensive amounts of mold exist within a building, properly trained professionals should always perform the removal. Even in cases of small scale mold infestations, don’ t take any chances. Call Superior Abatement Services today for testing and inspection.
