Frequently Asked Questions

Q. What’ s the big deal with mold? Isn’t it everywhere?

A. Some types of mold, fungi and other contaminants – referred to collectively as “microbial growth” – are toxic. They emit dangerous mycotoxins. These contaminants can cause respiratory distress, allergies, skin rash and irritations, eye and mucous membrane discomfort and may exacerbate symptom of asthma and other life-threatening conditions.

Q. How do I recognize a mold problem?

A. In your home or office you can see or smell mold that is growing. Mold, which usually appears as black or green “speckled” discoloration, grows on damp walls, floors and porous surfaces, like carpet. A musty smell is also often present when mold is a problem. Mold can smell strong, unpleasant, or just faintly “old.”

Q. Can’t I just get out the bleach and scrub moldy spots?

A. Chlorine bleach is not recommended for cleaning mold and other microbial groth. First, it is not possible to thoroughly sterilize any indoor area because mold spores will be present in the air. Spores spread quickly when surface mold is disturbed. If you manage to kill mold with bleach, you may still have a problem – many people are allergic to dead mold.
