Mold Removal & Remediation
What is Mold?
Mold is a common fungus found inside and outside, almost everywhere, year round. Mold grows best in warm, damp environments and multiplies as microscopic spores. It travels through the air, attaching to structures like drywall, flooring and other materials in a home. Once it takes hold, mold in a house can multiply quickly in high humidity surroundings like basements, bathrooms and crawlspaces.
According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), if you see or smell mold, there is potential health risk and you should hire a professional mold detection company, like AdvantaClean, for cleanup and removal.

Moisture Problems Can Lead to Mold, Mildew, or Other Biological Growth
It can potentially cause a variety of health problems for susceptible individuals. In addition, moisture issues can lead to rot and structural damage. When addressing any interior mold issue, the moisture source must be addressed to provide a long term solution.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, mold spores are always present, and there is no way to eliminate all mold indoors. However, the key to keeping the spores from growing into an unsightly problem is to implement moisture control. Mold will grow at a rapid rate on many surfaces, including wood, paper, carpets, and clothing. By reducing moisture in environments with air flow or ventilation problems, the chances of developing mold that will need to be killed and removed is greatly reduced, saving money and a big headache.
