Mold is a natural substance that, when growing outdoors, is a vital element in our ecosystem. Exposure to mold outdoors is not harmful; however, when mold grows indoors, it can lead to health issues for building occupants, as well as cause structural damage. It’s important to properly remove mold if it’s growing inside.
Common Problem Areas
Do You Have a Mold Problem?
Sometimes mold is visibly growing on surfaces where it’s obvious. Other times, it can be hidden behind drywall, flooring, and inside ceilings. A musty smell or the peeling, bubbling, or discoloration of drywall and wallpaper all serve as warning signs. If you have allergies that have flared up (frequent sneezing, coughing, congestion, or itchy eyes), that can also be a sign of mold growing.
Since mold needs moisture to grow, areas of the home that are damp or have flooded in the past are highly susceptible to mold growth.
- Crawl spaces
- Around windows
- Under sinks
- Behind walls

All fans and heating and cooling systems will be turned off to prevent the spread of mold. We utilize powerful “air scrubbers” and HEPA vacuums to prevent the spread of these mold spores while the mold remediation is in process.
The length of the mold remediation process depends on the extent of the mold remediation required. PureOne Services St. Louis uses antifungal and antimicrobial treatments to eliminate mold and to help prevent new mold from forming.
