Most Common Types of Mold

Mold remediation involves the removing, cleaning, and sanitizing of mold that is not supposed to be in a given location. Mold remediation also involves preventive measures taken to keep the mold from coming back once it is removed. In contrast, mold inspection involves looking for evidence of mold in a building and testing to see what kind it is. Mold inspectors search for mold inside walls and in other areas where mold is commonly found but not visible to the naked eye.

Mold is a minute fungus that grows in areas that are warm and moist, particularly in areas where there is a large supply or oxygen and organic matter. Since these conditions are quite common, mold can be found almost anywhere. Raleigh, North Carolina is one area that provides the right conditions for mold spores to thrive. Outdoor mold is essential to most ecosystems because the break down leaves and dead plants and fertilize the soil, but indoor mold is mostly just a nuisance. It smells bad, looks unsightly, and some varieties can cause health problems. Mold enters a building as mold spores in the air, but these spores eventually settle onto a surface and establish a colony. Basements, kitchens, and bathrooms are the most common places to find mold because these areas tend to have the most moisture.

The important thing to consider is that it is often preferable to keep the mold test and remediation separate. Mold remediation specialists have a built-in bias when they act as mold inspectors because they will make more money on the job if they identify mold. There is a chance that they will say there is harmful mold when there isn’t, or they will exaggerate on how bad the mold is. Since the job of a mold inspector is just to identify whether or not there is mold, they have no reason to lie or exaggerate. In fact, some states like Texas, New York, and Florida have laws in place to prevent the professional who performs the mold inspection to also perform the mold removal. For example, in Florida, they prohibit the task of remediation and the task of mold inspection from being done by the same company because they consider it a conflict of interest.

I had a great experience with AWA Environmental. The mold inspection was very professional. I had allergies driving me crazy for a few months and I suspected my home had mold. AWA was able to get out to my house very fast. They found black mold underneath my two of my sinks that I never noticed! Thank you AWA!!!
