What is Mold?

 

 

Mold serves an important role in nature by breaking down dead organic matter like leaves and trees. Mold exists both indoors and outdoors, especially in humid climates such as South Florida. Most mold types are non toxic and pose no threat to your health. However, some molds can be extremely harmful. If you think you have mold, it is always recommended to get your air tested by a certified professional. They will be able to tell you the the type of mold you have and how it should be treated.

 

In order to spread, mold spores need contact with moisture or humidity. Unfortunately, we live in an extremely humid climate which allows for mold growth. For controlling humidity, be sure to use air conditioning, dehumidifiers, and increased ventilation. If you’ve had recent flood damage, or suspect you may have a mold problem, give us a call.
