A mold issue in your home or office can be dangerous to your health as well as endanger the structural stability of your property. It will require mold remediation services to eliminate the problem. However, the first step in the remediation process must be mold testing by an industrial hygienist to identify the type of mold. Our crews do not perform mold testing. But when you suspect mold and request mold inspection services at your property by Burke's technicians, we can recommend an industrial hygienist to do further testing in order for us to handle your mold remediation needs.
For years, our mold remediation experts at Burke's have understood all types of mold and the required remediation steps for each. That is crucial when dealing with toxic molds like black mold or Stachybotrys.

How dangerous are the various types of mold that can be found in a home or office? It depends on which of these three types is growing at your property.
Allergenic Mold: This type of mold affects people with asthma or allergies. If you are allergic to mold and exposed to it, then you will have a hypersensitive reaction. During that time, a lot of mast cells are activated, which results in an excessive inflammatory response in your respiratory system.
Pathogenic Mold: Pathogenic mold is capable of causing specific diseases or infections. Most healthy people who have good immune systems are capable of fighting off pathogens. However, pathogenic molds are harmful to individuals who have weakened or compromised immune systems.
Toxic Mold: This type of mold produces mycotoxins, deadly chemicals that are harmful to humans. Unlike other molds, toxic mold deliberately harms other living things instead of the harm being only a side effect.
