Mold is common in most places across the United States, but for wet areas like here in Columbus Ohio it has increasingly become a problem. In recent years a lot of home projects have moved to Do It Yourself projects.

What Is Mold?
Mold is a type of fungus that thrives in moist, dark places. It reproduces through spores that travel through the air. Everyday we are exposed to mold, and as long as It is in small amounts, it is completely harmless. Mold can grow on anything as long as it has constant moisture to grow. With cold wet weather like Columbus Ohio has mold issues have become common. Exposure to mold for a long time can cause coughing, wheezing, or other upper respiratory tract symptoms.
What Is Mold Remediation?
Mold remediation is the process of focusing on mold heavy areas of the house. In Columbus Ohio, a well trained mold remediation specialist will go through a multitude of steps to eradicate your mold issue. This starts with a common inspection of the problem. Then the mold is contained to top the spread. The Air is filtered to remove any spores that could be present. Then the existing mold is cleaned up and finally, there is a complete sanitization of the area.
