What is Mold?
Mold is a common, natural fungus found in many outdoor and indoor spaces – though, of course, it’s not a problem until it begins growing in your home! Since this pesky fungus can have a hugely negative impact on your overall air quality and health, it’s important to take steps towards mold removal.
Where Does Mold Grow?
Mold can develop and grow in any environment where moisture is found – this can include the dark corners of your basement, but also in other areas, as well. For example, mold is typically found in:
- Wallpaper and drywall
- Laundry facilities
- Attics and crawlspaces
- Books and magazines (anything made of organic material!)

Results of Unchecked Mold Growth
Continued exposure to mold can causes a litany of unpleasant symptoms and illnesses, including headaches, upper respiratory infections, and nose & throat irritations. Not only this, but mold can virtually destroy insulation, drywall, carpet, and other porous materials – leaving you with costly damage and home repairs on your hands.
