The cleanup and/or removal of mold from an indoor environment are known as mold remediation. A professional mold removal company comes in and makes a mold assessment by first identifying the extent and location of the mold hazard. Molds are present everywhere and are common in most workplace and household dust. They reproduce by spores, and when the spores are in large quantities, they become health problems to humans because they have the potential for causing respiratory problems and allergic reactions. Some molds pose serious health risks to both humans and animals when they produce a toxin called mycotoxins. High-level exposure to this toxic mold can lead to neurological problems and even death in some cases. Exposure to some molds can lead to symptoms such as:
Sinus and nasal congestion, runny nose, difficulty breathing, watery eyes, rash, eye irritations, sneezing, headache, throat irritation, cough, chest tightness and asthma.
It is very important to call on the help of mold remediation experts at the first notice of mold in either your workplace or home.

If mold is visible and present, they will decide on the right remediation level that is necessary to solve your problem.
