Professional Mold Remediation in Dallas, Texas
What is mold?
Mold is a general fungus found inside and outside, almost everywhere, throughout the year. An ideal condition for a mold to breed and colonize is warm, damp environments and multiplies as microscopic spores.
It travels dynamically through the air, connecting to surfaces like drywall, flooring, and other materials in a home. Once it establishes itself, mold in a house can proliferate quickly in high humidity surroundings like basements, bathrooms, and crawl spaces.
What causes mold?
When tiny mold spores travel aero-dynamically and settle under the ideal conditions, mold or mildew can proliferate quickly, often going undiscovered, and become a nuisance inside your home. Mold can grow invariably almost anywhere when moisture is present for a prolonged period.
Where does mold grow?
Mold can snowball on most porous surfaces where there is damp and stagnant air. While it needs temperatures above 60 degrees, it can also grow in cold temperatures, which is why it can be found in the vicinity of the refrigerator.
Most often, however, it is found in the following places:
- Wallpaper and drywall
- Ductwork and ceiling tiles
- Carpet, drapes, and furniture
- Attics, basements, and crawlspaces
- Books and magazines (anything made of paper or organic material)
The effects of mold not only include the potential for structural damage to your home. If you are in the market to sell, undetected mold can exponentially lower the worth of your home.

Mold is part of the natural environment. Molds reproduce using tiny spores. Symptoms of mold exposure may include nasal and sinus congestion, runny nose, eye irritation, and itchy, red, watery eyes. Respiratory problems, such as wheezing and difficulty breathing, chest tightness, cough, throat irritation, skin irritation like a rash, headaches, or sneezing.
The first step in assessment is to determine if mold is present by visually examining the premises; visible mold helps determine the level of remediation necessary and take the appropriate action. The best way to control mold growth is to control moisture.
