    About Mold Contamination

    Indoor mold is caused by too much moisture in the air for too long of a time period. It may be a pipe that has leaked over a long period of time or a sudden pipe burst – the underlying cause is the same: moisture.

    With the majority of health issues tied with the mold being allergy-related, visiting the general doctor is your first step if you think you have been impacted. That said, mold contamination should never be ignored – as soon as it has been detected, prompt remediation is essential.

    Homes and workplaces with mold have been tied to a number of health issues, mostly allergies. However, in the worst cases, people can experience detrimental respiratory problems. The key to mold is early detection and swift removal to control the impact to health and property.

    Responding to Indoor Mold

    While it’s tempting to getting a structure tested for mold, all mold is addressed the same and a simple cotton swab test can help you differentiate between mold and dust. To determine whether you have a mold infestation, dip a cotton swab in a mixture of 1 part bleach with 16 parts water. Apply the swab to the affected area and look for lightening or recurring spots – these are signs of mold.

    Once you have identified the source and halted the moisture, mold removal by certified experts would be your next step. The important thing to remember in a mold situation is not to panic. If you are a home or business owner concerned about violating mold regulations, check out these resources by the Texas Department of State Health Services.
