Microscopic mold spores exist nearly everywhere, both outdoors and indoors. It is impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. There is little you can do to eliminate mold spores, as they are an essential part of nature. But when mold growth occurs where it shouldn’t–mold growth in your basement, kitchen, bathroom or anywhere else inside your home–you should be concerned and take action to remove the mold.
Any Minneapolis home or business can easily become infested with mold with the introduction of a water source such as a plumbing leak. Mold can spread throughout a home or business in as little as 48-72 hours, and can produce allergens and irritants that have the potential to cause other health effects.

Of course, sinusitis is just one of many dangers if you have black mold in your home. Untreated mold will only continue to grow, as will health problems that may include:
In the most severe cases, black mold can even be fatal for those with weakened immune systems, as well as children and the elderly.
