Frequently Asked Questions

  • Where Does Mold Grow?Mold can grow just about anywhere, from your bathroom to wet clothes. Typically, it can be found in places like the kitchen, basement, attic, and other places that are warm, dark, and humid. Many times, it will grow in places where water intrusion has occurred. That said, what really matters is what type of mold is growing-and how much there is.
  • Should I be Concerned About Mold in My Home?Yes. Mold inside a property can cause a range of health issues, such as coughing, sneezing, and shortness of breath-which can be worsened by existing allergies. In addition, mold can potentially cause damage to your property.
