Signs of Mold Issues

Mold can grow in any level of your home if you have excess moisture or humidity issues. Identifying signs of water damage, or problem area early on can minimize your chances for mold growth and thus needing remediation. Here are some of the main area’s inside and outside your home that lead to mold growth:

  • Recurring water leaks from plumbing, HVAC systems, and building defects like roofing and/or foundation leaks.
  • Adverse health effects which include coughing, runny nose, persistent headaches, etc.
  • High levels of humidity in your basement along with musty odors.
  • Water stains in walls, ceilings or floors.

Mold Basics

Molds are part of the natural environment. Molds are fungi that can be found anywhere – inside or outside – throughout the year. About 1,000 species of mold can be found in the United States, with more than 100,000 known species worldwide. Indoors, mold growth should be avoided. Problems may arise when mold starts eating away at materials, affecting the look, smell, and possibly, with the respect to wood-framed buildings, affecting the structural integrity of the buildings. Molds can grow on virtually any substance, as long as moisture or water, oxygen, and an organic source are present.

mold basics

They reproduce by creating tiny spores (viable seeds) that usually cannot be seen without magnification. Spores continually float through the indoor and outdoor air, thus requiring mold remediation .Molds are usually not a problem unless mold spores land on a damp spot and begin growing. They digest whatever they land on in order to survive. There are molds that grow on wood, paper, carpet, foods and insulation, while other molds feast on the everyday dust and dirt that gather in the moist regions of a building. When excessive moisture or water accumulates indoors, mold growth often will occur, particularly if the moisture problem remains uncorrected.

All molds share the characteristic of being able to grow without sunlight; mold needs only a viable seed (spore), a nutrient source, moisture, and the right temperature to proliferate. This explains why mold infestation is often found in damp, dark, hidden spaces; light and air circulation dry areas out, making them less hospitable for mold. Molds gradually damage building materials and furnishings. Since mold requires water to grow, it is important to prevent excessive moisture in buildings. Some moisture problems in buildings have been linked to changes in building construction practices since the 1970s, which resulted in tightly sealed buildings with diminished ventilation, contributing to moisture vapor buildup.

Types of Inspections

Understanding the various types of inspections when dealing with mold will better assist you in coming to a decision on not only which type of inspection to chose, but also the limitations of each that could effect the results. As of today, there aren’t any protocol’s for contractors to follow when doing a Mold Inspection. This is the reason that too many companies in this business will treat a mold inspection more like a paycheck than a service to identify whether or not a home or business has mold growth. So let’s look into some various types of mold inspection services and show their pros and cons.

Air Sampling

Air Sampling is the use of a Bio-Pump which employs forced air to impact spores onto a collection media or cassette. Samples are generally best taken if visual, non-invasive examination reveals apparent mold growth or conditions that could lead to growth, such as moisture intrusion or water damage. Samples are laboratory tested and analyzed and will identify if mold is present, the type of mold and the spore counts against a control. A control is an outdoor sample taken at the inspection to measure the interior air against the outdoor air as a comparison.

  • Collection Medias or Cassettes are laboratory tested from accredited firms
  • High level of accuracy and detailed mold reports.
  • Fairly inexpensive against other forms of mold tests.

  • Limited range or square foot coverage.
  • Multiple samples are needed for detailed analysis.
  • Limited to only collecting spores to which are airborne.

Surface Sampling

Surface sampling is a method of sampling a suspect area directly and then submitting that sample to a laboratory for results. Is can determine and identify molds actually growing on the surface sampled, as opposed to the mere presence of mold spores.



  • Great for sampling visible mold growth
  • Can reveal spores prior to becoming airborne.
  • Fairly inexpensive.


  • Only for visible suspect areas
  • Can not detect mold behind walls

Our Water Restoration Process

Water damage in your home or business can cause a myriad of issues leading to structural problems, damage to building materials and personal content loss if not dealt with in a quick manner. With a proper water restoration plan, those issues can be dramatically reduced, and that’s where we come into play.


Our professional and award winning water damage restoration services can protect your property from secondary damage, giving you peace of mind in knowing that your home or business will be restored with the upmost care and efficiency. Our water damage restoration process is as follows:

  • Source Identification – We will find the source of water and have it stopped.
  • Extraction – This is the process of removing the water using various methods like absorbing, draining, pumping and vacuuming
  • Monitoring – We will take atmospheric and moisture readings to see the drying rate, make any adjustments if needed to expedite the drying process which eliminates excessive moisture and uncontrolled levels of humidity.
  • Assessing the Extent of Damage – We’ll inspect the building, and start the documentation process. This also includes determining the category of water which indicates the level of contamination.
  • Structural Drying – Once the water is removed the drying process can begin. Air movers and dehumidifiers are placed to evaporate and extract all excess moisture from the structure.

Once the water restoration process is finished, we then will create the final documentation which includes, photos, invoicing and drying logs for submittal to you or your insurance company directly, and assist you throughout the entire claims process.

Why Immediate Action Is Needed

  • Within minutes after the blaze is extinguished, acidic soot residue causes discoloration of plastics. Certain materials like marble and alabaster could be marred permanently.
  • It only takes a matter of hours for acidic soot to cause yellowing of bath fixtures, counter tops, & the tarnishing of unprotected metals. Furniture & appliances may also discolor.

  • Within days, acid residues may permanently discolor walls and cause corrosion and rusting of metals. Flooring made of wood or vinyl must be replaced (or at the least refinished), and textiles such as clothing and furniture upholstery becomes irreparably stained.

  • In a matter of weeks, carpet may become unsalvageable due to discoloration. Silver-plated fixtures are irreversibly corroded. Glass, crystal, and china may become severely etched and pitted due to extended exposure to acidic soot residue.

Frequently Asked Question

Mold is a fungal growth that forms and spreads on various kinds of damp or decaying organic matter. Molds are vital in nature to decompose organic material, but when found indoors molds can produce adverse health affects as well as structural deficiencies in buildings.

Excess moisture is generally the cause of indoor mold growth. Molds reproduce by releasing tiny spores and when they settle on wet or moist surfaces, the spores can form new mold colonies. Moderate temperatures and available nutrient sources make most office buildings ideal for mold growth.

Hiring an inexperienced remediation company or just a general contractor can result in cross contamination and more severe health issues. Only a highly trained, certified and properly insured remediation contractor should handle jobs with mold.
