Remediation is the process of cleaning the mold and eliminating the moisture problem. This process is determined by the size of the remediation and whether occupants are experiencing any adverse symptoms that may be related to the mold. Since mold, destroys the surface materials it is on, remediation can preserve the structural integrity of the building. Failure to address a mold problem, ultimately can result in high replacement and rebuild costs.
Mold growth indoors may not always be in plain view. If a building smells moldy but you cannot see the source, or if you know there as been water damage and building occupants are reporting health problems, there may be hidden mold.

While elimiating all mold spores in the indoor environment is not realistic, it can be controlled indoors by controlling the moisture levels and removing already present mold. Mold has been an ever increasing concern to the public as they have become aware of the variety of health effects and symptoms that can result from mold exposure. There are many types of molds and all of the types have a distinct potential to cause health problems. Molds can produce allergens which can trigger allergic reactions or asthma attackers in people who are allergic to them. Other molds can produce toxins and irritants. One of the major reasons to prevent mold growth, remediate(clean up) mold, and prevent recurrence is to avoid the potential health problems.
Molds can be found virtually anywhere because they can grow on almost any organic surface as long as moisture and oxygen are present. Molds can grow on wood, paper, carpet, food, insulation, and more! Mold growth often occurs because there is excessive moisture in a building-a leak or an unaddressed moisture problem. How do molds spread? Mold reproduces by creating spores that cannot be seen without the aid of a microscope. The spores can float through the air until the spore lands on a moist location and begins to grow and devour the surface,destroying it.
Some moisture problems have been linked to changes in building construction practices in the 70s, 80s, and 90s. Some of these changes have resulted in buildings that are tightly sealed but lack adequate ventilation. This can lead to moisture buildup. Drywall often does not allow moisture to escape easily. Moisture problems may also include roof leaks, landscaping or gutters that direct water into or under the building and unvented combustion appliances. These cause mold buildup which then requires remediation.
