Mold Remediation: The What, Why, and How


The What, Why, and How

The What


Mold is a fungus that develops in multicellular structures called hyphae. The hyphae will continue to grow and eventually multiply into visible colonies, which experts consider separate living organisms. Mold plays an important role in nature by breaking down organic matter. Although, it can be very dangerous inside a home because it can cause respiratory problems. This is the case for individuals who are already suffering from asthma or similar health issues.


The Why


Mold remediation is essential before more issues occur. Choosing not to seek professional help can be detrimental to your health. Contacting a Mold Remediation professional will help you get rid of all the mold. Multiple issues that mold can cause are respiratory issues to people living in the home and hurting the home structure.



The How


There are a couple ways to identify mold in your home:


  1. Color: Mold can come in any color combinations like gray, tan, brown, red, blue, yellow, and black. Most likely the one inside your home will be black or gray.
  2. Texture: Mold can have so many different textures like fluffy, grainy, slimy, or spongy. 
  3. Smell: Just like color and texture there are a couple of different smells from mold. The typical smells are musty, lingering, and extremely pungent odor. Other smells that mold gives are earthy, meaty smell, or an odor similar to rotten wood.
