At Synergy, we will discuss the estimate and guide you step-by-step through the process of mold remediation so you’ll know exactly what to expect. In the process, we will need to determine the extent of your mold problem by considering the following:

- How long has the area been contaminated?
- Is the mold growth visible?
- How large is the problem?
- Is a mold protocol or air quality test needed?
We will then develop a detailed plan for safe mold removal with as little disruption to your family or business as possible. We will work with your insurance adjuster to approve the work necessary and bill them directly – usually with little or no money out of your pocket.

Properties of Mold
There are three general families of mold
- Allergenic: Which produce and cause allergic reactions.
- Pathogenic: These molds cause health issues in individuals who suffer from acute illnesses.
- Toxigenic: These molds produce toxic microbes.
With the multitude of molds that can be found in structures, having an expert to diagnose and inspect the extent of their spread is crucial to remove it. A Synergy professional will aid with making your house healthy and free from the most insidious molds.
A few common household molds are:
- Penicillium – A mold that most commonly thrives on wallpaper, wallpaper glue, decaying textiles, carpets, and fiberglass insulation. Penicillium causes hay-fever like reactions and induces asthma attacks.
- Aspergillus – This is a warm-weather mold that thrives both outdoors and indoors. It can be discovered in areas that are excessively damp with extensive water damage, as well as organic matter that is breaking down. It is also found in dust and produces mycotoxins.
- Alternaria – This mold is commonly located in textiles, dust, carpet, showers, soil, and window frames. This large spore mold deposits in the respiratory tract, mouth, and nose.
- Cladosporium – Cladosporium is the most commonly identified outdoor mold quickly enters homes. It grows in overtly moist, porous environments such as wood and textiles. Both the indoor and outdoor strains bring about asthma attacks along with inducing hay-fever like reactions.
- Stachybotrys – This particularly horrible mold that produces airborne toxins at a high level, fortunately, is the least common household mold. It requires excessive damp to thrive, and causes breathing issues, symptoms reminiscent of the flu, hearing and memory loss, and bleeding in the lungs.
- Acremonium – This toxic mold thrives in areas of moisture such as cooling coils, humidifiers, drain pans, and window sealants. It’s a powdery mold that grows in an array of colors like pink, white, grey, or orange.
- Aureobasidium – It is typically found growing behind wallpaper and painted wood surfaces. It starts out light brown or pink then deepens to dark brown-black the older it is. This is a highly responsive allergic mold, responsible for skin rashes and eye infections.
- Chaetomium – This mold is found in houses after a flood or leaking and in chronically moist conditions. It has a cottony texture, changes colors from white to grey or brown over time, and has a musty odor. Chaetomium is also known to produce mycotoxins that affect the immune system and cause nail and skin infections.
- Cladosporium – This unique mold grows in both warm and cold environments and migrates quickly on fabric, upholstery, under floorboards, and in carpets. It reacts adversely with wet tissues in eyes, nose, mouth, and throat.
- Fusarium – This mold is commonly located in a home’s soft goods and thrives and migrates in cold temperatures. A reddish strain is found in organic products like food and house plants, and both kinds can move quickly through a home. Symptoms start out as a sore throat, runny eyes, and skin infections then progresses to bone infections and brain abscesses.
- Trichoderma – This is a highly allergic mold with five subspecies. This rapid growth mold has a wool-like texture and is mostly green and white. It grows in consistently damp and moist areas like HVAC systems, textiles, and wood. Along with health symptoms associated with other mycotoxins, Trichoderma also destroys the surfaces it inhabits, causing decay and structures to crumble.
- Ulocladium – This mold is nearly always located in bathrooms and kitchens and is one of the black molds. It contributes to asthma and respiratory illnesses.
