What Is Mold?

Mold is a living organism that can be found in any environment with oxygen and moisture present. In nature, mold is a very important part of our ecosystem – It breaks down dead or decaying organic material and returns nutrients back into the earth’s soil.

On the other hand, mold becomes a serious threat to your health when it enters your home and contaminates the air you breathe. The most common types of mold found in homes include:

  • Penicillium
  • Aspergillus
  • Stachybotrys Chartarum (commonly known as black mold)

Understanding Mold How Mold Grows In Houston

It’s important to remember that not every type of mold is dangerous – the real danger occurs when mold is left untreated. To help determine if you have active mold growth, we listed the 5 requirements mold needs to grow in your indoor environment.

1. Moisture

Because mold is a living organism just like us, it needs moisture to survive. In a home, excess moisture that results in mold growth can come from many sources including:

  • Leaking pipes or hidden pipe burst
  • Overworked HVAC system
  • Damaged bathtub resulting in water intrusion
  • Water damage from a recent storm or flood

2. Oxygen

Mold needs oxygen to grow. Because oxygen creates the environment we live in, we can’t avoid it. A common mistake homeowners make when insulating their home is blocking too much outside airflow.

Your home needs to breathe. Blocking airflow entirely prevents the humid air inside your home from escaping when it needs to, which can increase humidity levels and the buildup of moisture.

3. Food

Mold can’t grow without water, oxygen, or a food source. Mold colonies can feed on any organic matter. This includes:

  • Wood
  • Wallpaper 
  • Upholstery 
  • And many household fabrics (cotton & wool)

In many cases, mold begins to grow on building materials that have recent water damage or experience frequent levels of high humidity. This allows mold to latch onto the damaged material to grow.

4. Warmth

Lastely, mold needs warmth to grow. Mold requires the same conditions humans do to survive. Most species thrive in environments between 70-90 degrees fahrenheit, making Houston’s warm-humid climate the perfect place for mold to grow.

Our Mold Removal Process

We begin remediation by carefully inspecting the suspected areas and contain the room to stop any further spreading. Our team uses specialized tools like HEPA-filtered air scrubbers, moisture meters, and thermal imaging cameras to get a clear picture of the situation. For protection, our experts gear up with full-face respirators, disposable coveralls, gloves, and protective eyewear. We keep it straightforward, using visual inspections and moisture mapping to pinpoint the areas needing attention. By setting up sturdy containment barriers using heavy-duty polyethylene sheeting, we ensure the mold doesn’t spread any further.

Our next priority is to find and fix the source of moisture. Our expert crew uses dehumidifiers, air movers, and cutting-edge moisture detection tools, to eliminate the source of moisture causing the mold to grow. We may use additional drying methods like structural dehumidification and targeted air circulation to eliminate future contamination.

The contaminated building materials are removed using HEPA vacuum cleaners, scrapers, brushes, and specialized sealable waste disposal bags. We ensure your safety by double-bagging contaminated materials, sealing off HVAC vents, and setting up decontamination chambers. Next we vacuum using HEPA equipment and methodically remove affected materials, following local regulations to dispose of contaminated materials responsibly.

Using HEPA vacuum cleaners, microfiber cloths, sprayers, our team begins cleaning the contaminated areas. We may use EPA-approved disinfectants and antimicrobial solutions to ensure surfaces are properly sanitized and free from any lingering mold spores.

Mold often releases a “musty”, earthy, or smelly odor. It’s hard to describe with words, but It’s the scent commonly associated with dirty socks or smelly boots. This odor is a result of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) produced by mold as it grows and breaks down organic materials. The smell depends on the type of mold and the material it’s growing on. It’s important to note that not all molds produce a smelly odor, especially in the early stages of growth. 

If you detect this unusual, musty smell in your home like the one described above, it could be an indication of mold presence, even if you can’t see any visible mold. Please remember that odor alone may not confirm the growth of mold, but it’s a strong indicator to call a professional mold inspector to take a closer look

Well, this is where it gets complicated. Homeowners insurance coverage for mold damage often depends on your insurance provider and the details of your policy. We recommend you to consult with your insurance provider directly about your coverage.

Insurance companies typically cover mold contamination resulting from sudden and unexpected events, like an active pipe leak, toilet overflow, or a broken A/C unit, assuming you take reasonable steps to prevent the damage.

Examples of mold damage that are likely covered:

  • If a pipe bursts and floods the entire first floor of your home while on vacation
  • In the event of a dishwasher malfunction that leads to a kitchen flood


Additionally, mold resulting from storm-related flooding is typically not covered under standard homeowner’s insurance. You would need a separate flood insurance policy covering these scenarios specifically. 

Examples of mold damage that are often not covered:

  • If your bathtub has been leaking for six months, leading to a mold infestation.
  • In cases where you live in an extra humid climate (like Houston) but fail to use a dehumidifier to manage moisture levels.
  • If immediate action isn’t taken after an accidental flood or overflow and you forget to dry out all affected areas


To legally extract mold in Texas, homeowners need a Certificate of Mold Damage Remediation (CMDR) when filing a mold damage claim through their homeowner’s insurance policy. To obtain this certificate, homeowners must follow a specific process:

Request a Professional Mold Assessment by a Texas-Licensed Inspector:

  • The first step is to schedule your inspection and assessment with Neptune Mold Solutions
  • During this assessment, the inspector will examine the affected areas to determine the extent of the mold problem.
  • The inspector will also provide a written protocol known as a Mold Remediation Protocol, outlining the best methods and strategies for mold remediation.

Find a trustworthy Texas-Licensed Mold Remediation Company:

  • With the written protocol in hand, homeowners should then engage the services of a Texas-licensed mold remediation company.
  • The mold remediation company will follow the protocol provided by the inspector to carry out the required mold remediation work.
  • It is crucial to ensure that the remediation company is licensed in Texas to ensure compliance with state regulations

Get a Post-Remediation Clearance Inspection by a Licensed Mold Consultant:

  • After the mold remediation work is completed, a licensed mold consultant from Neptune Mold Solutions will conduct a post-remediation clearance inspection.
  • This inspection is designed to double check that the mold issue has been effectively addressed and that the affected areas are now completely mold-free and safe to enter. 
  • If the clearance inspection confirms that the remediation was successful, a Certificate of Mold Damage Remediation (CMDR) will be issued.
  • When the mold remediation is complete, the restoration company hired to do the work will sign their portion of the CMDR within 10 days.


Finally, your mold consultant at Neptune Mold Solutions will sign their portion of the certificate, approving the project’s completion and the mitigation of mold damage.

Please note that these procedures apply to mold damage claims in the state of Texas and may differ in other regions. Always consult your specific policy and local regulations for precise requirements.

Exposure to certain species of mold can have serious health risks, ranging from common allergy-like symptoms to more serious, in some rare cases, life-threatening conditions. If you’re experiencing any of the symptoms mentioned below, please call a mold inspector near you (Texas Mold Assessment Consultant) to inspect your home. 

Less-severe symptoms of mold exposure can feel similar to having a common cold:
  • Coughing
  • Sore throat
  • Sneezing
  • Heavy breathing
  • Body aches
  • Skin rash
  • Nasal congestion

It’s important to mention that everyone has a slightly different immune system, so individuals who are more sensitive or less healthy may experience these side effects differently. Long-term exposure to mold can lead to additional medical conditions such as:
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Nausea
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Vertigo
  • Diarrhea
