To help determine how dangerous the molds found in your home or commercial properties are, we classify molds based on hazard classes or their health risks. We use three categories to tell how dangerous they are, which include:
- Hazard Class A – Categorizes molds and their metabolic by-products that pose extreme danger to human health, indicating the need to remove them as soon as possible.
- Hazard Class B – Categorizes molds that once inhaled or contracted can cause allergic reactions. While not as dangerous as Class A, it is vital to eliminate Class B molds for family members or building occupants with delicate health.
- Hazard Class C – Categorizes fungi that pose less danger to health but have a detrimental economic impact, making it vital to eliminate them before they cause serious damage to your home or building.
