What is Mold?

According to the official CDC.gov website:

“Mold is a fungal growth that forms and spreads on various kinds of damp or decaying organic matter. There are many different mold species that come in many different colors. Molds are sometimes referred to as mildew. They are found both indoors and outdoors in all climates, during all seasons of the year. Outdoors, molds survive by using plants and decaying organic matter such as fallen leaves as a source of nutrition. Indoors, molds need moisture and a carbon source from building materials or building contents to grow.
Excess moisture is generally the cause of indoor mold growth. Molds reproduce by releasing tiny spores that float through the air until landing in other locations. When they settle on wet or moist surfaces, the spores can form new mold colonies. Moderate temperatures and available nutrient sources make most office buildings ideal for mold growth.
An example of how mold reproduces.
Exposure to molds has occurred throughout history. The types of molds found in office buildings are not rare or even unusual. It is important to understand that no indoor space is completely free from mold spores – not even a surgical operating room. Molds are everywhere, making our exposure to molds unavoidable, whether indoors or outdoors, at home or at work.”

What types of mold are harmful?

As you may be able to tell, mold is impossible to escape. However, not all molds are harmful to yourself or others. The CDC later goes on to explain which types of mold are harmful for you, and your loved ones.

“’Toxic Mold‘ & Stachybotrys chartarum
Certain molds are toxigenic, meaning they can produce toxins (mycotoxins). However, the molds themselves are not toxic or poisonous. Hazards presented by molds that may produce mycotoxins, such as Stachybotrys chartarum, should be considered the same as other common molds which can grow in your house or workplace. There is contradicting research on whether toxigenic mold found indoors causes rare health conditions such as bleeding in the lungs. Research is ongoing in this area.
Mold growing in buildings, whether it is Stachybotrys chartarum (Stachybotrys atra) or another mold, indicates that there is a problem with water or moisture. This is the first problem to address.”

What Is Our Mold Removal Process?

AFC specializes in Mold Remediation – Let us do it right! Our process is methodical and includes the following:

  • Visual inspection including inspection cameras that reach into wall cavities
  • A mold spore pre-test to determine concentrations and species present
  • Removal of contaminated materials which cannot be treated (i.e. drywall)
  • Treatment of the affected areas post-removal to eradicate the mold
  • A mold spore post-test to clear the air quality as “safe”

​Mold won’t go away on its own, and will continue to plague people with bad air quality and toxins. It is imperative that you contact a certified mold removal professional, like the pros here at AFC Cleaning & Restoration, LLC. We can have a technician on site promptly to determine your mold problem and begin the remediation process.
