What are the different types of mold?

Which types of mold are the most dangerous?
Stachybotrys, aspergillus, and acremonium are the most dangerous and should be handled immediately.
What are the most common causes of mold?
Mold grows in damp environments, so it’s no surprise that much of the mold we see is from past or current leaks under sinks or in basements. If there is a history of leaks, moisture can get behind walls and cause more damage.
Does a mold inspection include remediation, removal or treatment?
A mold inspection is the process of assessing, testing and analyzing lab results to determine the type of mold and the severity.
Mold remediation and removal is a separate process that can range from a couple hundred dollars into the thousands, depending on the severity and where the mold exists.
