The Problem of Mold
Mold in your home may cause a variety of problems, from simple odor issues to serious lung infections in the immunocompromised. Even the healthiest person can suffer from mold exposure, which can cause irritation of sensitive areas like the eyes, nose, and throat, and even the lungs or skin.
Problems worsen for infants and children, those with compromised immune systems, and anyone with chronic lung disease. The CDC reports that mold exposure may even increase a child’s risk for developing asthma.
Mold can enter your home through any opening, from an open door to an air vent. It grows best in damp areas. You will be most likely to experience mold growth where there has been flooding, in high moisture areas like bathroom, and leaky areas around pipes or windows.
You may see mold in open areas. It is typically spotty, and can be black, green, or orange. It can even be white or purple. Mold can also hide in hidden places like carpet, drywall, and insulation… even upholstery! A musty smell may also indicate the presence of mold.
It is not necessary to fret and worry about moldthough. It is not even necessary to do routine checks for mold in your home. However, if you see mold or are experiencing health problems that could be a result of mold, call Super Restoration at 800-516-8059 to schedule your free evaluation.

The removal of mold in an indoor environment must be performed professionally by a state licensed mold remediation professional. Super Restoration specializes in remediation of building materials, mechanical systems, ductwork, contents, documents and more.
Mold remediation services can include containment of critically affected and unaffected areas, air filtration for airborne spore removal and cross contamination prevention, mold impacted material removal and detailed micro-cleaning of affected areas or zones.
It is vital to any successful remediation project that a post confirmation/clearance test be performed by an independent mold assessment firm. This independent mold assessment is the reassurance that the project was successfully completed and that a safe indoor space is ready to reoccupy.
Buyer Beware: The State of Florida has passed laws for licensing mold assessment and mold remediation services. These regulations are in place to protect the residents of the State of Florida. The laws include specific requirements, preventing mold remediation companies from providing remediation proposals without an independent assessment report, and preventing remediation contractors from benefiting financially related to their own exaggerated assessments.
