Causes of Mold at My Property in NJ & NY

No matter how clean you keep your home, it's always possible it can contain invisible mold spores. These spores are harmless until exposed to moisture. At that point, everything changes. When wet, these spores fulfill a necessary, vital part in the decomposing of organic materials. Unfortunately, most building materials in your home or office are made of organic materials.

Water damage inside your home or office can trigger mold growth at a rapid rate that leads to structural damage to your property and health hazards for humans. Fortunately, our team of mold remediation experts at Consolidated Environmental can get the job done right the first time and eliminate mold-related issues at your property in FairfieldLincoln ParkAndoverGlenwoodWest Orange, and other cities throughout our service area in New Jersey & New York.

What are Mold and Mildew?

Mold is a microscopic organism that’s part of the fungi kingdom. It occurs in warm areas where there’s a moist environment. The exact number of different mold species is unknown, but scientists estimate that over 100,000 different types of mold microorganisms exist. Statistics from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) in Atlanta report that at least 1,000 species of mold are common in the United States. Mildew refers to certain kinds of mold or fungus. The term "mildew" is often used generically to refer to mold growth.
