Mold is a fungus that grows from tiny airborne spores and flourishes in warm, moist conditions. Breaking down and decomposing dead organic matter, mold serves a vital function in our planet’s ecosystem.
However, when mold thrives indoors, it can be a severe health concern. Many people are sensitive to mold exposure and can quickly develop allergic or asthmatic reactions. Others can develop symptoms such as a stuffy nose, wheeziness, fever, rash, and itchy eyes. Long-term mold exposure can even trigger upper respiratory tract infections, hypersensitivity pneumonitis, and, in some cases, even fatal health conditions.

The latter aims to physically remove all the spores they can, rather than aiming for a naturally balanced level. If someone claims to remove mold completely, this is simply not true. The term mold removal is a generalized phrase for professionals working with mold, but remediation is the true aim of what we do. They mean similar things, but it is good to know the difference.read more
