Any type of mold, mildew, or fungus should be treated immediately. The health risks are serious and some types of mold can be fatal. Most molds grow in areas where it is easy to become airborne. Sometimes the air duct system can even be harboring harmful mold. Your lungs are exposed to the mold and sooner or later your health will suffer. The health effects are a risk for you, your staff, and even your customers or clients. Mold can spread quickly and leaving it ignored will make it costlier to fix. Always keep an eye in humid areas such as bathrooms, kitchens, and wet basements. Pay special attention to anywhere that previously had water damage. Make an effort to dry and clean the affected area. However, if the growth is irremovable you will need to seek help via a professional mold remediation service.

Is All Mold Dangerous?

Not all types of mold are dangerous. The vast majority will have real implications to the health of you, your family, and your pets. You likely know that black mold (“stachybotrys”) has serious health risks. However, many other types of mold are dangerous to humans. Another type of mold (“chaetomium”) usually grows in wet areas, such as in drywall after a bathroom flood. It looks like black mold and has similar serious health effects. If you notice blue, green, or white mold it could be “penicillium” which can give allergy and asthma-like symptoms. However, there are literally more than 100,000 types of mold that exist. Many are dangerous to your health which is why it is important to remediate the mold as quickly as possible.

Is Mold Testing Necessary?

In most cases, no testing is required. You are better off paying for remediation alone instead of wasting money on testing the mold. If you catch it early, simply book a remediation service with a professional mold removal company. Mold testing is more important if the growth is old and health issues exist. Check with your insurance policy as mold testing and remediation might be included.
