Environmental Mold Analysis
|A DBA of T-Square Construction, we are licensed by Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation in mold assessment. This license is now a requirement for anyone performing mold testing. We carry liability and Errors and Omission insurance. We are certified by the American Council for Accredited Certification for Microbial Investigation. Mildew and molds are fungi – simple microscopic organisms that thrive anywhere there is a moist environment. Molds are a necessary part of the environment; without them, leaves would not decay and aspects of soil enrichment could not take place. It is their ability to destroy organic materials that makes mold a problem for people.
Mildew (mold in its early stages) and molds grow on wood products, ceiling tiles, cardboard, wallpaper, carpets, drywall, fabric, plants, foods, insulation, decaying leaves and other organic materials. Mold colonies can start to grow on a damp surface within 24 to 48 hours. They reproduce via spores – tiny, lightweight “seeds???- that travel through the air. Molds digest organic material, eventually destroying the material they grow on, and then spread to destroy adjacent organic material. In addition to the damage molds can cause in your home, they can also cause mild to severe health problems.
