No matter what type of home you live in, chances are there is mold or mildew in the building. Mold growth can be caused by humidity, poor air circulation, or moisture in your home. Breathing in mold can lead to many health problems, such as chronic inflammatory illness, nasal issues, internal bleeding, breathing troubles, and it has even been linked to asthma development in children which is why Mold Testing and Remediation is important at the first sign of problems!
Air Quality is Important!
Your home’s indoor air quality can have a positive or negative impact on your health. We spend 90% of our time indoors, breathing the trapped air in our homes. Unfortunately, most people don’t know that this air can be making them sick. Pollutants, like mold, are found in that air, and we breathe it in daily.
Because today’s more modern homes are tightly sealed for energy efficiency, it is easy for water to be trapped inside. This extra moisture helps increase mold growth.

Building materials such as wood, drywall, wallpaper and fabric are great food sources for mold, too. And synthetic stucco can leak and trap moisture inside. Even your appliances generate moistures. The dishwasher, the dryer, all of these create water vapor which puts moisture into your home, and creates an environment that mold can thrive in.
This is all in your air, and your family is breathing it in daily.
Mold Testing and Remediation
Mold could be in your home, and in your air if your home has a history of water damage or leaks. Signs of a mold problem include an increase in allergy symptoms (a runny nose, stuffy head, sneezing, watery eyes) only when you’re in the house. These symptoms often get better when you go outside. Or, if you notice a musty odor in your home, or see visible mold growth, these are definitely signs of a mold problem.
