What is Mould?
Mould is a living organism which is found all over the planet. Most moulds are harmless. Some moulds can be harmful; in particular, moulds associated with water damaged buildings.
These types of mould can be toxic and prolonged exposure to these organisms can severely impact the health of building occupants. Health organisations such as the Institute of Medicine (IOM) and the World Health Organisation (WHO) discovered connections between certain mould types and chronic health conditions.
Remediation of mould impacted buildings is essential to providing a clean and healthy indoor environment.
