Los Angeles, CA – November 24, 2010 (via — Toxic mold in homes and offices is increasingly being recognized as a serious health issue. Mold spores are an unfortunate part of household and workplace dust. However, when mold spores are present in sufficient quantities, they can be a health hazard to humans.

According to the World Health Organization’s 2009 Guidelines for Indoor Air Quality: Dampness and Mold, “Exposure to microbial contaminants is clinically associated with respiratory symptoms, allergies, asthma and immunological [immune system] reactions.”

If a building exhibits one or more of the following, there may be a mold contamination problem:

 * Musty smell
 * Black, gray or green stains (mold stains) in the form of colonies growing on walls, floors and ceilings
 * Recent or ongoing water / plumbing leaks, water damage or flooding
 * Old water damage marks or stains over walls, floors, shower, or ceilings
 * Moisture or condensation due to inadequate ventilation
 * Unexplained, unusual or off-season allergy symptoms (especially if accompanied by the above)

Locating the source of the moisture is of paramount importance. If the source of the moisture is not located, it is almost certain that the mold will return within a short period of time.

Mold is commonly found on walls, floors, ceilings, counter tops, and in carpets – basically almost anything exposed to moisture. ( ) These microscopic spores can be hidden inside a wall, behind a tub surround, or under a kitchen sink.

Whenever a home or building has been exposed to excessive moisture, it is important to first have the property inspected and tested for mold. A mold inspection company can determine the seriousness of the contamination.  It’s best to hire an inspection company that doesn’t also do the removal, to prevent any potential conflict of interest.

Building Cleaning Services removes the mold; they do not perform testing.
