Mold Remediation Are You Aware that September is Mold Awareness Month? Mold spreads quickly, so a minor mold infestation can quickly escalate into a major problem.

Are You Aware that September is Mold Awareness Month?

Molds are part of our natural environment, and can be found everywhere, indoors and outdoors.  Molds are usually not a problem indoors, unless mold spores land on a wet or damp spot and begin growing. The mold spores will not grow if moisture is not present. Indoor mold growth can and should be prevented or controlled by controlling moisture indoors. 

It only takes a small water leak, or even excess humidity, for mold to form in your Toms River home or business. Then, mold can spread quickly through the property in as little as 48 hours. Mold can produce allergens and irritants, and it has the potential to cause other health effects.

Listed below are a few simple tips if you suspect you may have a mold situation:

  • DO NOT ignore possible signs of mold.  Immediately look for possible sources of moisture without disturbing suspected mold to prevent further spreading.
  • Repair any sources of water as quickly as possible and thoroughly dry the any areas that are wet or damp.
  • Move anything that is not suspected of having mold on it to a safe and dry area.
  • If possible, seal off areas that may be contaminated to prevent further spreading. 

If You See Signs of Mold,
