Below is a list of the most commonly asked questions concerning mold in my home or commercial building.
What is mold?
Mold is a fungus that thrives in areas where there is oxygen, moisture and organic matter. The appearance of mold is usually irregularly shaped spots which can be fuzzy or slimy. Mold spots can be several colors such as brown, gray, black, white, yellow or green. Mold can be found both indoors and outdoors. If mold is found indoors it can cause health issues, as well as structural problems to your home or building.

Can I treat the mold issues myself?
While there are some products that you can use to try and eliminate the mold in your home, the areas that you would treat would most likely only be areas where mold is visible.
