MOLD INSPECTION & REMEDIATION TECHNICIAN

  • Molds are microscopic organisms that play an important role in the breakdown of plant and animal matter.
  •  Outdoors, molds can be found in shady, damp areas, or places where leaves or other vegetation is decomposing. Indoor molds can grow on virtually any surface, as long as moisture, oxygen, and organic material are present.
  •  When molds are disturbed, they release tiny cells called spores into the surrounding air.

What are the most common forms of mold?

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the most common indoor molds are:

Symptoms stemming from mold spore exposure may include:

Nasal and sinus congestion
