Knowledge Base

Mold is everywhere. However, too much mold in your home can cause many health effects for different people, like allergies, asthma, and even lung infections. The best ways to control mold in your home are to prevent it from growing, and to clean or remove it if it is found. Testing for mold is generally not recommended because there are no standards established for what the safe quantities of mold are for the various types of mold. Therefore, no matter what type of mold is found growing in your home, you should arrange for its removal.

For more information about the health effects from mold in your environment, click here to visit the U.S. Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) website.
