Mold spores are all around us, all of the time. This is more or less normal. It becomes a problem when mold spores in your home land on a damp material, such as a wet carpet or a wet wall.
If you see mold in your house, it means that you have dampness, high humidity, condensation, leaks or other moisture problems in your home. The first thing you should do is to identify the source of the moisture. If you cannot, or if the mold contamination is large, don't hesitate to contact a professional for a complete mold inspection and scope of work assessment.
Mold Busters provides fast and professional mold inspection, testing and remediation services for all Russell residents and business owners.

If you know that you are dealing with black mold (or any other toxic mold species) or if you're already experiencing mold-related symptoms, then definitely limiting your exposure is a good idea. If possible, stay with a friend or relative or rent a hotel room until the mold has been completely removed by a trained professional. This is especially true for parents with small children and/or the elderly since these demographic groups are most sensitive to mold.
Exposure to mold is known to cause a wide range of symptoms and health conditions including asthma, allergies, fatigue, nausea, flu-like symptoms and Sick Building Syndrome.
