Asbestos was widely used in a variety of building components through the late 1970’s. By the late 70’s, undeniable evidence proved that inhaling small asbestos fibers could lead to a variety of health issues. The use of most asbestos building materials was banned but not before it was fitted in nearly every home built before 1978. If your property was built prior to 1978 and the damaged areas require demolition, it will need to be tested for asbestos before full demolition can get underway. If the tests come back hot, full asbestos remediation will need to be performed first.

Mold spores may germinate after 12 hours and can start to grow within 24 to 48 hours. How quickly molds colonize depends on the relative humidity and the type of mold it is. Mold can begin to germinate for a wild variety of reasons, from roof leaks, to pipe bursts, to gaps within window and door seals. Mold can not only come from a variety of water sources, but come in a variety of kinds. They're potentially-harmful when introduced into any property, especially homes. There are five categories of toxic mold:
Stachybotrys – The toxin produced by Stachybotrys chartarum is the most deadly. It has been tied to diseases as minor as hay fever, to those as serious as liver damage, pulmonary edema, and in the most severe cases, brain or nerve damage and even death.
Cladosporium, Fusarium and Penicillium – Have all been connected to illnesses such as nail fungus, asthma, and also infections of the lungs, liver and kidneys.
Aspergillus – The least serious of the toxic mold groups, the aspergillus mold family consists of over 160 species. Only 16 of those cause illness in humans, none of which are fatal if treated.
Toxic molds are all very dangerous if allowed to grow inside the home. Proper precautions should be taken to prevent and eliminate their growth. This is why it is essential to act immediately in the event of water damage!
