Asbestos was commonly used in a number of building materials through the 1970s including insulation and flooring and roofing materials. Asbestos fibers, when disturbed, can become airborne and enter the respiratory system, posing a significant health risk to those who are exposed. If you suspect asbestos in your property and it has been damaged, or you have plans to remove the material, it should first be tested to confirm whether asbestos is present so the proper procedures can be followed for abatement or removal.

Keep in mind that we all deal with mold spores daily in both our indoor and outdoor environments. It is never really a question of whether you have mold in your home, but more a question of “is the mold in my home out of control?”.
It is not reasonably possible to rid a structure of all mold spores since they are part of our everyday air. Mold remediation is about reducing elevated mold spore levels to what is considered reasonable or acceptable levels, or standards that would be considered normal.
Mold identification should never be determined by just color. Actual mold species and their toxicity can only be determined through microscopic analysis by a qualified mycologist or an Indoor Environmental Professional. The term “black mold” is usually used to describe a particular type of mold called Stachybotrys, which is known as toxic mold. However, not every mold that is black is Stachybotrys and to add to the complexity, not all toxic molds are black in color.
The key to avoiding a mold problem begins with controlling excess moisture. Respond to water intrusions immediately, repairing the source of excess moisture and completely drying out all affected areas. The standard target for ideal indoor humidity is 30% to 55% RH.
