Mold Removal and Remediation
Commercial – Residential – Industrial Mold Remediation Services
Mold spores are everywhere, floating all around. At low levels, mold doesn’t pose a problem for most people or property. It’s when the spores are exposed to water that a dangerous mold outbreak can happen and mold removal and remediation is necessary to avoid health problems and property damage.
Mold and mildew can grow on hidden surfaces behind drywall or wallpaper, within insulation, under wallpaper and carpeting, inside cabinets and behind appliances. Unless these hidden areas and the source of the water are found, the mold will continue to grow.
