What you should know about mold. 

   

  • Mold is mold: While some strains of mold are more toxic than others, none are healthy, and all mold is remediated the same way.
  • Moisture is the problem: If your house is moldy, the real problem is water infiltration and/or prolonged humidity levels over 60%. Unless you correct the water and humidity problems, you are never going to get rid of the mold.
  • Do more than kill mold: Mold should be removed by scrubbing away the mold growth, replacing wet materials, and fixing moisture problems.
  • Repairs can be expensive: Mold growth can point to larger problems such as leaks, poor drainage, or foundation problems. Have FamilyGuard conduct a mold test and analyze air and surface samples in your home today.
