Frequently Asked Questions about the mold removal and remediation services.

General Questions

How do I know if I have mold?

Essentially, mold removal can be thought of as a more superficial process – removing the mold from your buildings surfaces. Whereas remediation, involves both the removal of the mold as well as the identification and rectification of the source.

What is the difference between mold removal and mold remediation?

Mold can grow just about anywhere, but it typically thrives in warm, humid or moist environments It can also sometimes be found in drier environments that have poor ventilation or air flow.

How much does mold removal cost?

Since every mold infestation is unique, it inherently makes each job different. This means, of course, that the cost of both mold testing and mold cleanup will also be different from job to job.

San Diego Mold Removal

Where does mold grow in San Diego?

Even though we live in one of the drier areas of the nation, mold still grows and even thrives here. We have seen it just as often in large oceanfront homes, as in apartment complexes throughout the inland region. Nowhere in San Diego is safe from mold growth.

Is there black mold in San Diego?

The short answer is yes, there is black mold in San Diego. However, not all mold that is black in color is the toxic form that we refer to as “black mold”. The only way to know if you have toxic black mold is to have mold inspection and possibly mold testing performed by an experienced professional.

Los Angeles Mold Removal

Where does mold grow in Los Angeles?

Mold can grow anywhere given the right conditions. Which, unfortunately, because of our climate, means most homes are prone to mold damage if not treated correctly. It will often start growing in bathrooms and other damp places around the house. If left untreated, it will spread into the walls, foundation, and subfloors.

Is there black mold in Los Angeles?

When you hear the term ‘Black Mold’, it typically refers to a group of molds that can produce toxins (mycotoxins). However, not all Black Mold is toxic, and toxic mold does not necessarily have to be black. Dangerous mold can present itself in nearly any color / shape / location. This means that a visual inspection is not the best or most accurate way to identify the type of mold you have.

Houston Mold Removal

Where does mold grow in Houston?

Unfortunately, mold can grow just about anywhere. This is due mostly to the fact that, thanks to our warm & humid climate, mold spreads rapidly here. That means it can quickly get into the structural elements of your home (i.e. behind walls and under subfloors) faster than you might expect, which can exponentially increase the cost of eradicating the infestation and restoring the structure.

Is there black mold in Houston?

Houston is prone to black mold simply because we are prone to mold in general. There is insufficient information as to why black mold develops in the first place – as opposed to any other variety of mold (just the luck of the draw I guess). While we are still learning about toxic mold, thankfully, we do know what some of the physical manifestations of prolonged exposure to mold are.
