Mold can be incredibly harmful to your health, and with prolonged exposure, black mold can even be fatal. For people who are symptomatic, the side effects of breathing in mold over time include sore throat, rashes, puffy eyes, respiratory infections, and fatigue. Children and seniors can be especially vulnerable to mold. Mold needs the right amount of moisture and food to grow and spread. Food for mold within a structure is wood, textiles, drywall and many other sources within a home or business. Water damage can allow mold to grow out of control which is one of the many reasons it is so important to call a restoration professional at first knowledge of unwanted water in your home or business. We live with mold wherever we are; however, the amount of growth, spore counts, is what is analyzed compared to the outside of the structure to determine the health of the environment. If you suspect you have mold in your home or office, but you are not able to locate it, you can schedule a free evaluation for a trained technician to conduct an inspection.

What is Mold?
Mold is a type of fungi, a living organism that can spread quickly anywhere moisture is present, both indoors and out. There are over 100,000 varieties of mold in the world, and the most common types found in the Charlotte area are Cladosporium, Aspergillus, and Stachybotrys Atra. Visible mold can have a black, brown, green, or grey color and has a distinctive musty smell. Mold can also be found deep inside of walls and ceilings. Living and working in a mold-infested space can bring on nasal congestion, coughing, sneezing, and can develop into serious respiratory infections in both humans and pets. People with allergies, asthma, weakened immune systems, and chronic respiratory diseases are more susceptible to mold’s negative health effects. Most mold can be found in warm, damp, dark places, including crawl spaces, kitchens, laundry rooms, bathrooms, cupboards, window and door frames, air conditioning vents, and inside walls and ceilings. Mold will only grow where there is sufficient moisture, so when the problem begins to spread, the first step is to locate where the moisture is coming from. On residential properties, mold will usually grow in the areas of the house that get wet the most often or have poor air circulation. When mold is present, it is vital to have it professionally identified and removed, and the certified technicians at Contents Restoration Services (CRS) have the experience, chemicals, and tools needed to locate, identify, and remove mold from your property.
Mold Remediation Services
Our trained technicians will evaluate and report on any mold found on your property. We also will help you to determine the source that's allowing the mold to grow. The first step in resolving the microbial growth is to determine the source and stop or repair the source. Once the source has been resolved, our technicians can then remove the microbial growth and return your home or office to a healthy environment. Testing is sometimes required in certain situations. A third-party partner will conduct air and surface swab sampling. It is not recommended for a remediation company to also conduct the testing and writing of protocols, so we partner with expert environmentalists to provide these services to our customers. The mold samples will provide a spore count and a genus breakdown within each affected area. A protocol will direct the scope of work to be completed and the environmentalist will conduct a post-remediation verification to confirm that remediation has been successfully completed.
