What is Mold?

Mold is a fungus that grows in the form of multicellular filaments called hyphae. In contrast, fungi that can adopt a single-celled growth habit are called yeasts.

Molds thrive on moisture and reproduce by means of tiny, lightweight spores that travel through the air. You are exposed to mold every day. In small amounts, mold spores are usually harmless, but when they land on a damp spot in your home, they can start to grow.

What to do if you suspect mold in your home or business? Call SERVPRO of South Shasta County for a free inspection. We can inspect the area of concern, detect if there is moisture and provide you with a free estimate to start the mold remediation process.

Mold is not something to mess around with. It is important to detect the area where you identify the mold to stop the moisture source. If mold is not removed it can cause health effects to humans and animals.
