Our #1 concern is your health. Mold can be a very serious health concern. Most mold inspectors have never heard of mold illness and have no idea the devastation that is can cause. Mold spores may cause allergic reactions in sensitive individuals. However, it is the dead mold fragments and mycotoxins produced by specific molds that cause mold illness and neurological disorders. These mycotoxins are chemicals that can remain active for many years. You can not “kill” them using the same methods that are used to kill living mold spores. They must be neutralized.
The advantages to knowing the type(s) of mold in your home are:
- It will determine if mycotoxins have been produced
- Aids in locating the source of toxic exposure with no visible mold
- Determines whether possessions should be purged or washed and kept
- Medical treatment proposed by your physician may vary with each mold type

“Forty million people and half the homes in the U.S. have a mold problem.”
~Dr. Andrew Heyman, geneticist and mold researcher.
