Visible greenish brown, brown or black mold on interior building surfaces and personal items is an obvious sign of a mold problem. A damp, musty odor often associated with mold, is another highly suggestive sign. When a water or high humidity event has occurred and is not immediately addressed by experts in water damage repair, mold is almost always an inevitable consequence.
Safety is the main consideration when there is a mold problem. Immediately remove people and pets from affected areas. Do not handle or attempt to clean up the mold. Avoid disturbing the mold or spraying it with disinfectants or bleach. Turn off heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems as these will disperse mold spores into other locations.

Mold can produce serious allergic symptoms and worsen asthma. People and pets with respiratory problems, children and the elderly are more at risk from mold exposure. Common associated systems include shortness of breath, wheezing, coughing, eye irritation, nose and throat irritation, and headaches.
Black mold is a toxic mold that is associated with allergens, irritants and worsening asthma. Regardless of the color, only a qualified mold remediation professional can determine if you have black mold or another type. Any mold in your living areas should be treated with caution, evaluated and tested by a certified mold inspection company.
Mold becomes dangerous when it multiples into colonies from a substantial or persistent source of moisture – a roof leak, plumbing leak, flood, or high humidity event can rapidly produce a serious mold problem. Mold remediation is a process that addresses and eliminates the source, prevents mold from spreading, decontaminates affected building structures and personal property, removes the mold and restores the property to its pre-loss condition.
