Mold growth is a common problem, a leak or water intrusion can easily result in a mold issue.
Mold can be the cause of numerous respiratory diseases, as well as cause expensive property damage. Some home owners may not even be aware of any water damage, but suspect mold growth due to the musty odor that mold gives off. If you have recently experienced any form of water damage or suspect mold, you need to have mold testing and mold inspection completed by a professional testing group like Pure Air Indoor Solutions as a first step to determine if remediation and removal is necessary. Our mold inspections and mold test will give you ample information, such as the species of mold found, and the amounts of spores that were found during the test. Knowing the kind of mold is important in planning ahead for a remediation, or removal. Different chemicals affect different species of mold differently, therefore this information is vital to a successful remediation.

People with serious allergies to mold, may have more severe reactions.

Other recent studies have suggested a potential link of early mold exposure to development of asthma in some children. Mold has a very serious effect on human health, therefore you should only hire certified professionals to deal with the problem.
