Yes. Toxic black mold releases dangerous spores and mycotoxins into the air which are responsible for the adverse health effects described above. All Island Cleaning Corp. professionals will do initial air quality testing and air filtration to assure that toxic spores and mycotoxins are no longer present in your home or business.
Mold can be prevented by minimizing the moisture in your home or business. Mold relies on excessive moisture or a water source to grow and live. Purchasing dehumidifiers and regularly inspecting troublesome areas for mold growth will greatly reduce your chances of having a problem.
