What is Mold and Do I Have It?

Mold strains – Candida, Cladosporium, Stachybotrys, Aspergillus,—it goes by many different names, but it is one hazardous problem…MOLD! Whether the unwelcome mold is the result of a Water Damage such as a hidden leak, flood, broken pipes, or high indoor humidity, mold forms in as little as 48 hours when excessive moisture and poor air circulation are present indoors. Mold has been identified as a major cause of allergies and poor indoor air quality. In Chicago and its suburbs, the ServiceMaster Restoration By Simons technicians are mold remediation and removal experts.

Is Mold Growth Common?

Yes.  Despite the rapidly growing body of knowledge about mold, it remains the subject of a lot of confusion. Whether in the shower, on a stale piece of bread, or wet drywall, we have all encountered mold at one time or another.

According to the Center For Disease Control And Prevention (CDC), Mold is very common.  Found both outdoors and indoors, no one knows exactly how many species of Mold species exist, but it is estimated to exceed over 300,000 strains.  That sounds common enough!  We live around mold all the time.  It becomes unsafe when it grows inside of the structures we occupy, especially when it grows to unhealthy proportions, as to affect our health and well-being.
