What are Molds?
What are molds?
One of the most common questions we receive at SERVPRO® is: what exactly is mold. What kind of mold do I have? How do I keep it from spreading?
Molds are fungi that can be found both indoors and outdoors. No one knows how many species of fungi exist but estimates range from tens of thousands to perhaps three hundred thousand or more. Molds grow best in warm, damp, and humid conditions, and spread and reproduce by making spores. In addition, mold spores can survive harsh environmental conditions, such as dry conditions, that do not support normal mold growth.
What are some of the common indoor molds?
SERVPRO® can help to remediate the mold in your home. In addition, SERVPRO® will bring in air scrubbers that will help to remove the mold spores in the air in order to prevent any additional mold from forming. In most cases, the contaminated area will be sealed off in order to contain the mold spores in the air while the air is being "scrubbed" by the air scrubbers.
In many cases, the mold can simply be remediated. Please give us a call to schedule an appointment.
