There are several ways you can become exposed to Mold:


  • Breathing in the spores from the air.Tiny spores reproduce and are invisible to the naked eye and float through indoor and outdoor air (these fungi are called fruiting bodies).
  • Skin contact from handling or rubbing an object with mold on it.
  • Neglecting to do something about mold whether it is seen or unseen (musty odors).
  • Molds feed off water, moisture, dampness, organic food source, and amiable temperatures.


Mold can cause Health Problems


Molds have the potential to cause health problems and even make a home become uninhabitable. Each person is affected differently when they come in contact with mold. Molds produce allergens (substances that can cause allergic reactions), irritants, and in some cases (mycotoxins: potentially toxic chemical substances). Removing drywall, wallboard with excess spores and carelessly can cause spores to spread.

 Inhaling or touching mold or mold spores may cause allergic reactions in sensitive individuals.


Mold Exposure even in small amounts may cause


  • Itching or irritation of the nose, eyes, skin, or throat
  • Mysterious skin rashes
  • Sinus infections or congestion / sinusitis (runny nose)
  • Respiratory problems (sneezing & coughing) upper or lower infections
  • Frequent headaches, fatigue, chronic aches and pains
  • Trouble concentrating, memory lapses, confusion
  • Mood swings, anxiety, depression vomiting


Mold can be found in the Home, Office, Business, Medical, Gymnasiums
Basements, crawlspaces, attics, interior walls caused by water leaks, ice dams.
There are currently no governmental standards TLV's for mold testing.


Examples include:


  • Basements, crawl spaces, kitchens (bottom of fridge), bathrooms, laundry wash/dryer area
  • Underneath carpets and pads, tiles, flooring, sub floors ,  floor joists
  • Drywall (front & backside), hidden mold, wallpaper, paneling, studs
  • Ceilings, attics, floor joist(especially prior or existing roof leaks)
  • HVAC systems & duct work, vents-registers, cooling coils 
  • Anywhere there is preexisting or current flood moisture situations.
  • Modern, tightly sealed homes can increase the likelihood of mold due to moisture and lack of air flow between wall cavities.
  • Gyms and Workout areas for mold, bacteria pools, steam rooms, saunas, exercise equipment, floor mats etc. Unkempt locker rooms, showers.
