Mold Testing, Mold Cleanup and Mold Abatement
Moisture is the key to controlling mold. Regardless of the efforts used to remove mold, it will return if the source of moisture is not eliminated. After a cold winter in Johnson County and Wyandotte County, Kansas and in the Kansas City, Missouri metro area, and the hot, wet summers which are typical, the perfect storm of conditions are present to encourage mold growth. Apex mold testing and abatement service coverage extends, over the Kansas City, Kansas and Missouri metro areas, including, Lawrence, Leawood, Overland Park, Lenexa, Louisburg, Raytown, Harrisonville, Belton, Lee's Summit, and Gladstone.
Concern in the media about indoor exposure to mold has been increasing as the
public becomes aware that exposure to mold can cause health effects and symptoms, including allergic reactions.
To be clear, in most cases mold is not a health risk to normal healthy people. Exposure can be a problem to infants, older people, and those with compromised immune systems and allergies to mold. Long term exposure can cause problems as well. Molds can be found almost anywhere; they can grow on virtually any organic substance, as long as moisture and oxygen are present.
Molds reproduce by releasing spores that cannot be seen by the naked eye. Mold spores move with the air flow through the indoor and outdoor air continually. When mold spores land indoors under the right conditions, they may begin growing and digesting whatever they are growing on in order to grow and reproduce.
