what is mold?

  Mold is a microscopic fungi. There are thousands of different kinds of mold, and can be found indoors and outdoors. They spread by producing spores and grow in damp, humid, and warm conditions. Colonies of mold can begin to form as quickly as 24 hours after water intrusion. Indoors, it is found in areas where levels of humidity are high, such as: an attic, basement, bathroom, outside in a crawl space, or around other areas that contain plumbing. Once mold begins to spread, spores can survive harsh conditions. If mold is left unattended for long periods of time it can damage walls, ceilings, floors, furniture, framing and other foundational elements in a building. Indoor mold growing on a surface can look fuzzy, have a slimy texture, or look like a stain. It can be black, brown, white, green, yellow and other colors. Since mold needs moisture to thrive, fixing the moisture issues you may have can prevent mold from growing. If you’ve had a mold problem in the past it is important to note any porous material that was previously infected with mold (such as: carpet, curtains, drywall, tile, or clothing) that was not discarded will be more susceptible to mold growth in the future.

air test for mold?

If mold is detected, or even suspected, in your home you should plan for its removal immediately no matter the type.
