Mold Remediation Facts & Information

Mold is a fungus that grows virtually everywhere, especially in damp states like Michigan. Scientists aren’t sure how many mold species there are, but estimates range anywhere between tens of thousands to hundreds of thousands. Some types of mold aren’t dangerous, while others lead to chronic and severe health conditions for humans.

Guardian Recovery Services, based in Madison Heights, uses the most scientific methods to determine the degree and type of mold infestation, then devises and carries out the proper mold remediation protocol. This includes third party mold testing to ensure your property is healthy and safe. Visit the following pages to learn more about mold, mold testing, and mold remediation.

Mold Testing

Common Areas for Mold Infestations

Mold flourishes in moist environments, and it can rapidly grow into a harmful infestation. Anywhere excess moisture can accumulate can harbor mold. Therefore, the sources of any moisture must be mitigated before effective mold remediation can begin. Mold outbreaks can be frustrating, especially in the long, wet seasons of Michigan.

Black Mold Removal

Black mold, or Stachybotrys chartarum, feeds on common organic materials found in carpet, drywall, insulation, paper, or wood that have gotten wet.
