Excessive amounts of mold occur more frequently in hot and humid weather; as mold is a fungus that needs moisture to survive and thrive and become a real health problem. With enough humidity, mold can grow at temperatures as low as 50F or so. Our biohazard technicians offer mold remediation services across New York State, for residential and commercial properties and anywhere else mold may develop and cause an issue. Most every environment has a small amount of mold, but this isn’t usually considered an issue. The issue usually occurs when a location has excessive amounts of mold that is clearly visible and growing fast; reasons for mold growth are flooding, poor ventilation, high amounts of condensation, water leaks and areas with constant moisture.
What is Mold?
Now that you know small traces of mold are pretty much everywhere, you might be curious as to what mold actually is… and rightfully so. Mold is a naturally occurring fungus that needs three things to develop: Water, Air and Organic Material. These three things combine to make the perfect breeding ground for mold. Mold can be green, gray, black, white, and even orange. When there is a visible presence of mold or you’re experiencing any of the symptoms listed below when in a certain room or building, there’s a good chance the property is experiencing levels of high mold. If this is you, it’s time to call your New York certified mold remediation and removal specialists.

Prevent Mold Infestation
Because mold thrives in moist environments, the first thing to do is to find the source of water. If there are damages, repair them during good weather. If there are holes in pipes be sure to dry all surfaces that experienced moisture, such as drywall, flooring, studs, molding, and ceiling. It is often recommended to put a fan on anything for at least a couple hours after clean up. If the moisture isn’t due to damages, it may due to poor ventilation, usually occurring in bathrooms and laundry rooms. Once a mold breakout happens and you see or feel the effects, contact our New York mold remediation specialists to come out to your location immediately.
