MOLD REMOVAL AND REPAIR

Titan offers mold removal and repair services. Mold is composed of microscopic fungi which grow together with tiny filaments to create a single organism called a mold cluster.  Tiny microscopic mold spores invisible to the naked eye can float through the air and get breathed in. Mold can be extremely toxic to your health (and your children and pets), especially certain types of mold, called mycotoxins, which can lead to death.  A musty odor is one of the best indicators that mold may be present in your home. Mold removal and repair is best left to trained professionals, as doing it yourself can actually make it worse in some cases.
