Major causes of mold growth and microbial permeation are caused by undetected and untreated moisture in the environment. Mold can grow on any surface as long as moisture and a food source is present. water leaks, high humidity often detected in basements and attics. Mold growth can cause property deterioration and serious health issues that can affect the respiratory system and skin. In fact, more than 65 million mold spores can exist in an area the size of a postage stamp, making mold a difficult problem for home, property, and business owners to treat. Often, home, property, and business owners attempt to remove mold themselves; this leads to further issues.

It does not penetrate porous materials such as wood, drywall, and ceiling tile, and therefore literally does not get to the root of the problem. Properly removing mold can help you save on future replacement costs and other damages and repairs.
