Mold has become one of the most talked about and misunderstood parts of our industry. The media as well as the Internet is responsible for a lot of the fear and misconceptions of mold. Mold is everywhere and has been forever. The problems occur when a moisture intrusion is not dealt with in a proper manner and allows for mold to get out of control. People with respiratory problems, compromised immune systems, or those who are elderly as well as infants are most susceptible to the effects of mold.
Any home or commercial property can quickly become infested with mold if the right conditions (moisture, heat, lack of airflow) are present. Mold can begin to grow throughout your Charleston and Teays Valley area property in as little as 48-72 hours. However, visible mold isn’t seen until after this period. Mold can produce allergens and irritants, so you should call us to inspect your home if you suspect you have a mold issue. Our professional technicians have the training and expertise to track down potential issues that may be a concern. We also have the right equipment and training to address and remediate any mold that may be found.

Some restoration companies advertise “mold removal” and may even guarantee to remove all mold. This is a fallacy because removing all mold from a house or business is impossible; microscopic mold spores exist almost everywhere, both indoors and outdoors. Here are the facts:
- Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
- Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.
- Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
- Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
- Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
- Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.
