mOLD IN GENERAL

Molds are part of the natural environment and are simple, mircoscopic organisms whose purpose is to break down dead materials. Molds can be found on plants, dry leaves, and about every other organic material. Mold spores are lightweight and are spread by air currents. If spores land on a suitable surface, they will begin to grow. In order for mold to thrive, Mold requires four things to grow. They are: Water, Organic materials, Oxygen, and an Optimum temperature (between 40 and 90 degrees F). Mold growth is often seen as a discoloration and can grow in several different colors. The most common are white, orange, pink, blue, green, black or brown. CDC recommends keeping humidity levels as low as you can-no higher than 50%. 

HEALTH EFFECTS FROM MOLD

For some people, mold can cause a stuffy nose, sore throat, coughing or wheezing, burning eyes, or skin rash. People with asthma or who are allergic to mold may have severe reactions. Immune-compromised people and people with chronic lung disease may get infections in their lungs from mold. 

What is a mold Assessment ?

 An assessment, or a mold remediation plan, is a document prepared by a mold professional. It identifies mold and serves as a guide for the cleanup project. It says what must be done, how it is to be done, and how you will be able to tell if all the mold has been removed. The specific requirements are listed in Section 945 of the Labor Law.
