Mold Removal in White Plains NY

Mold is a type of fungus that is found naturally occurring both indoors and outside. Mold is incredibly diverse and there are many different types manifesting themselves in many different shapes and colors. The one thing all molds have in common is how they reproduce and spread – through spores. Mold spores are essentially tiny microscopic seeds that can withstand conditions incompatible with mold growth, and travel through the air. These spores can land on surfaces where they will sit dormant until the proper conditions conducive to life come along – namely a food source and moisture. Mold is extremely resourceful and only needs a small amount of water to survive. Paper and wood products are particularly susceptible to mold growth because the mold can feed off of these organic substances by decomposing them. Places that have a relative humidity of over 60% are perfect breeding grounds for mold. Mold grows into multicellular structures called ‘hyphae’ that spread in a thread-like shape, extending the hyphae-like hairs. There are over 60,000 species of mold, but here are a few types that are concerning for homeowners particularly.

  1. Stachybotrys: this type of mold thrives off of wood, paper, and cardboard. This is the mold you have probably heard the most about since it is referred to as ‘black’ or ‘toxic’ mold. Stachybotrys require very damp conditions with poor ventilation to grow. 
  2. Aspergillus: this type of mold is one of the most common forms found in households. It has over 185 different subspecies, 22 of which are known to cause illness upon exposure. 
  3. Cladosporium: this is another common mold found in homes, and is often the cause of skin lesions and lung infections. 

Regardless of which type of mold is found in your home, removal needs to be done quickly, safely, and effectively. While there are many solutions for mold removal you can try on your home, the best and most effective way to ensure proper mold removal is to call in the professionals at Maxons. Proper containment and removal of mold are essential to preventing further spread and contamination of the air in your home.
