Mold has been present almost everywhere on Earth for millions of years. Any place with organic material and moisture can support mold growth. Modern medicine has learned much about the health hazards associated with mold and the danger of inhaling air containing many types of mold spores.
Mold can find organic material to feed upon anywhere. The key factor involved in controlling mold growth and infestation inside buildings is managing moisture and humidity to avoid creating suitable environments for mold to feed and reproduce.
Exposure to moldy and moist environments can cause a variety of adverse health effects in many people. Children, allergy sufferers, and the elderly, are particularly subject to adverse reactions to mold spores. People with chronic illness or immune system deficiencies should be particularly aware of the risks associated with mold. Symptoms can range from congestion and coughing to severe allergic reactions or respiratory infections.
When there are concerns about a home or business’s mold conditions or air quality, consultation with an expert and experienced mold remediation company is the best course of action.

There are many occasions where home or business owners need professional mold consultation. Almost all contracts for the sale of residential real estate require disclosures from prospective sellers regarding property conditions. Known mold infestation is among the topics that require disclosure. People who are selling commercial or residential rental property are likely to need professional consultation to ensure that all mold-related conditions have been addressed and disclosed to protect against possible legal liability.
Prospective purchasers of residential or commercial property also are likely to desire consultation before closing a sale. Contract provisions typically provide a purchaser the right to inspect the property before becoming fully committed to purchasing. Even completely honest and forthcoming sellers may not know of a mold infestation or suitable conditions for mold growth on the property they are selling. Significant investments call for a thorough inspection before a sale is closed.
Third-party professionals, lenders, and governmental regulators also need mold consultation services during other construction or remediation projects or regarding due diligence and regulatory responsibilities. With the prevalence of mold-related contractual disputes and litigation in recent years, expert analysis of mold conditions is often needed for many reasons.
When selecting a professional company to assist with mold consultation, it is important to examine a company’s reputation, experience, and contract terms.
