Mold and Mildew
Mold and Mildew are both moisture thriving fungi that can be toxic if inhaled. Both are born, amplify and grow in moist environments.
Like mildew, mold grows from some sort of water source which includes building materials with a high moisture content due to rain water absorption during construction. Mold spores will attach themselves to these building materials and use them as a food source. If you do not act quickly in removing this mold it will rapidly produce a natural defense called myotoxins. Once the mold creates this defense system it is now considered Toxic Mold which can cause harmful if not fatal health issues. A lot of times basement and house mold grows in older construction because of high humidity. During inspections an inspector will always focus on high humidity areas to find the source of the mold. The challenge after finding the source of the fungi is in cleaning and removing it correctly.
Our Ozone Advantage
