Mold and mold spores can be found just about anywhere, both indoors and outdoors. Mold spores are microscopic and float along on the breeze through doors, windows, air conditioning systems, on clothing or pets. They can easily enter your home or business without knocking.
Low levels of mold rarely cause problems, but if left untreated mold can cause structural damage to a building and health issues for your and your family. Common symptoms of mold exposure are often similar to outdoor allergies: coughing, sneezing, watery eyes, congestion, headaches and more. Mold has the propensity to spread quickly, especially where there is moisture.
If done improperly, mold remediation activities can cause the spread of spores and expand the affected area. This is why it is important to hire experienced and trained professionals like ALM Abatements to address your mold concerns.
