Mold Damage in the Hampton Roads are can spread through a home in as little as 48 hours. 

Microscopic mold spores naturally occur almost everywhere, both outdoors and indoors. This makes it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. Therefore, mold remediation reduces the mold spore count back to it natural or baseline level. Some restoration business advertise "mold removal"and even guarantee to remove all mold, which is a fallacy. Consider the following mold 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 window, doors or AC/Heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet. 
  • 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 area. 
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.
