Although New Mexico has a fairly dry climate, homeowners and business owners in Albuquerque, Santa Fe, Las Cruces, and other New Mexico cities may encounter mold in their property. Mold is considered a toxic substance, and exposure to mold should be avoided as much as possible. Unfortunately, mold can thrive in almost any environment where moisture and oxygen are present, and it can grow on any organic surface.
Through concentrated research, the Center for Disease Control and the Institute of Medicine believes there is a connection between the presence of mold and many illnesses, ranging from lung problems in healthy people to severe respiratory issues in immunocompromised individuals. Mold has also been linked to the development of asthma in some young children. Prolonged exposure to mold can be extremely dangerous, and potentially fatal.
It is important to understand the symptoms and health effects of mold exposure. It can help you quickly identify these indicators and take immediate action to protect your health, your family, and your home.
If you have recently had flooding or water damage in your home or business or you believe mold is developing, call the professionals at Asbestos Experts™ immediately. Our experts are trained to identify mold quickly and get it removed from your property safely.

You may not know it’s there until the health effects become noticeable. That’s why it’s so important to contact American Restoration for thorough water extraction after a flooding event.
