Mold growth of any type inside a building is unhealthy. Even when molds spores do not contain hazardous mycotoxins, they will contain chemicals that cause and agitate allergies.
It's not uncommon for a lawsuit involving mold litigation to award $50,000, $200,000, or more per settlement. In 2005, there were an estimated 10,000 mold-related cases pending in United States courts.
In addition to the health risks, mold also leads to significant damage to everything it grows on, and can even lead to serious structural damage.

Unlike other hazardous materials such as asbestos, there are no clear regulations for "clearance levels" when conducting mold removal and remediation in California. However, the EPA has provided these goals for contractors seeking to perform successful mold remediation:
Beware of "boutique contractors" who lack the necessary experience and training.
Many inexperienced mold remediators fail to identify all sources of moisture and humidity while performing mold remediation. This enables the mold to regrow, and need to be removed again.
Mold damage is a complicated building problem that requires a trained, professional contractor. Different species of mold may require different safety requirements and remediation methods, and in some cases, unaided visual examination may not be enough to tell if a stain is mold growth or another issue.
Our Certified Mold Remediators (CMR) have been trained to remove existing mold in your structure, using a variety of equipment and mold cleanup methods. Work areas are typically contained to limit the release of contaminants.
HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Air) vacuums are used for final cleanup of remediation areas after materials have been thoroughly dried and contaminated materials removed. HEPA vacuums are also used for cleanup of dust that may have settled on surfaces outside the remediation area.
