Humidity and moisture causing mold growthHidden dangers in commercial and residential properties

It’s easy to tell when something mechanical breaks down at a property but there are many hidden problems that residential and commercial properties can experience and one of the more hazardous situations is humidity and mold growth. Mold is a fungus that can grow silently in inaccessible parts of the property. If not detected and removed, mold can easily spread to other parts of the structure and while mold appearance is unsightly, removal of the fungus is essential for health-related reasons.

Airflow, humidity and mold growth

Mold needs very little to grow and take hold of drywall and other parts of the building. Dark spaces with little air flow are prime areas for moisture and humidity buildup which is the perfect scenario for mold infestation. In residential homes, appliances such as washers, dryers, and refrigerators are also excellent areas where mold can fester on adjacent walls. Commercial properties are even more susceptible to mold infestations as these buildings sometimes have complex air flow needs that are not maintained, varying humidity levels in different areas of the business and many low traffic areas with little to no ventilation.

Mold is not just an appearance problem

Mold itself can have different appearances including blackish smears, green bubbling and large swaths of yellowing. The fungus ruins the appearance of walls and fixtures it infests but the results are not just visual. Humidity and mold growth can drastically affect the air quality at the property as the fungus releases a steady stream of harmful airborne spores and bacteria. Larger areas of mold will release even more harmful toxins into the air flow which could create short and long-term negative health effects to anyone residing or working inside the property. Symptoms of lower quality air could indicate a mold infestation problem which should be corrected immediately. 

Testing and removing mold from the property

Air quality testing is usually the first step in managing a potentially hazardous mold infestation. Mold can easily take over walls and areas and removal of the fungus must be undertaken by professionals with extensive experience with humidity and mold growth. Premium contractors such as Matrix Remediation use the latest equipment to test air quality and detect the presence of mold. Experts in both residential and commercial properties will be able to inspect and detect key areas for mold growth and fully remove the fungus with the latest environmentally friendly yet powerful chemicals.

Humidity and mold growth calls for the experts at Matrix Remediation

Thanks for the professional work. We were going to deal with the mold removal ourselves and realized it was a bad idea. Your crew really knows what they are doing. Our place is spotless – and they even gave us some good household tips. I have no problem in recommending Matrix.


Robert Lee

Thank you for coming to the rescue. I didn’t quite know how dangerous asbestos could be, but I knew it had to be removed completely and properly. Thanks for the professional touch – I feel much better now that the house is clean and safe. I hope I never have to use this service again.



Ensuring Proper Asbestos Abatement & Removal2019-12-19

If the samples show the presence of asbestos, a removal procedure should ensue. Optimal removal procedure is selected based on the type of asbestos that is in question, its location and amount.

Signs of Asbestos Contamination in the Home2019-12-09

What makes asbestos harmful to health are its toxic fibrous crystals. Due to normal wear and tear, and abrasion of materials that contain asbestos, microscopic fibers are released into the air, causing serious lung issues when inhaled.
