Tip: Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.

Why is containment of mold so important during the removal/mitigation process? 


There are many different types of mold. Most are not harmful to the human body however some types of mold can be very toxic. The toxins within the mold are called mycotoxins. There are various factors, for each individual, as to how much exposure is considered safe. Finding and removing or encapsulating these mold spores before they continue to grow or spread is critical; especially if children, elderly or persons with a critical/immune illness inhabits the area where mold was found. 

Containment of these mold spores during the mitigation/removal process, by a professional, is extremely important in avoiding any mold spores that detach from the surface during cleaning from becoming airborne and spreading to other areas throughout the building that were not affected. These minuscule particles can quickly spread throughout previously unaffected areas of your home, including air ducts, bedrooms, etc.
