Mold growth can occur in both residential and commercial buildings. It's usually the orange film you spot on your kitchen drain or the fluffy white substance you see on your basement floor. The main reason for mold growth is moisture, either water or even humid air, that hangs around. Unfortunately, when there's a water damage emergency in your place, mold can grow in as little as 24 hours. This can easily result in damage to your home's structure.
Excess moisture and dampness are the common causes of mold. High dampness in basements or ground floors, leaking pipes, and rain seeping in due to damage on the roof or around window frames can cause too much moisture to accumulate in buildings.

It can thrive anywhere as long as it can get the conditions it needs to thrive. To detect mold in your house, our mold inspectors think outside the box and will check for it in the following areas:
