Mold Damage FAQs
Is mold dangerous?
- Yes! According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), all molds have the potential to cause serious health effects. Molds can produce allergens that can trigger allergic reactions or even asthma attacks in people allergic to mold. Others are known to produce potent toxins and/or irritants. Stachybotrys (black mold), Aspergillus, and Penicillium are three of the most dangerous and commonly found indoor toxic molds. Mold can even grow inside your lungs!
- Mycotoxins are cytotoxic, meaning they have the capacity to pass through the human cellular wall and disrupt certain cellular processes-potentially causing serious health damage to workers and customers.
- Only licensed and experienced mold removal personnel like Ace should be handling these types of sensitive problems!
How can I tell if I have a mold problem?
- Mold can be fuzzy or slimy and comes in a variety of colors (black, green, orange, red, or purple). Mold can also appear to be a powdery substance. Another indication of mold growth is an odor that smells like mildew. Mold needs moisture and warmth to grow. The most common places mold can be found are in the bathroom, laundry room, and basement.
If I clean the area where I suspect mold, will it stop the growth?
- Cleaning will not stop mold growth. The source of the moisture causing the mold growth must be identified and repaired. Bleach does NOT kill mold, contrary to popular belief.
