A mold (or mould) is a fungus that grows in the form of multicellular filaments called hyphae. In contrast, fungi that can adopt a single-celled growth habit are called yeasts.
How does mold form: Dampness results from water incursion either from internal sources (e.g. leaking pipes) or external sources (e.g. rainwater). Dampness becomes a problem when various materials in buildings (e.g., rugs, walls, ceiling tiles) become wet for extended periods of time. Excessive moisture in the air (i.e., high relative humidity) that is not properly controlled with air conditioning can also lead to excessive dampness.
We tackle mold the right way: If mold is identified on materials, appropriate remediation guidelines with proper containment should be used to minimize exposure to building occupants. Inappropriate remediation (e.g., painting over water-damaged materials or moldy surfaces) can cause further problems with building degradation and symptoms in occupants.
Please refrain from touching or removing any mold you may find on your premises. If you find any mold please contact us and let us take care of the biohazard for you quickly and discretely.
