The Truth and Some Myths About Mold

Unfortunately, those of us in the mold remediation business spend as much time clearing up misconceptions about mold as we do protecting the public from the harm that can be caused by these multicellular fungi. That is because the truth about mold is more complicated and fascinating than the public, including the media, realizes. At Conejo Restoration, we believe that education is one of the most powerful tools that can be used to protect the public from black mold in Thousand Oaks.


  • Mold is nearly everywhere: There is more mold around us than most people know. According to experts, there are more than 100,000 species of mold in existence.
  • Not all mold is bad: Because of what is propagated in the media, many people believe that all mold is bad. In fact, this is not the case. Penicillin and even cheese are made from mold. However, when it comes to safety why take the risk that the mold around your house is one of the harmless kinds?
  • Bleach is all that is needed to kill mold: Mold remediation is much more complicated than simply spraying bleach on mold. In fact, neither the EPA nor OSHA recommends the use of bleach to remove mold. Effective remediation involves removing drywall, carpet, carpet padding and whatever else cannot be cleaned. Afterwards, these materials must be bagged up and disposed of properly.
  • “Toxic Black Mold” can cause several health issues: These health issues can range from headaches, vomiting, nausea, fatigue, rashes, lymphoid disorders, damaged organs, flu-like symptoms or worse. Our company does mold cleanup in Thousand Oaks than can protect your family from mold that may cause such health problems.
  • Mold removal and/or remediation can be a DIY project: This depends on whether or not you want the job done thoroughly. While the average homeowner may be able to remove some mold, only experts can remove all That is because we use commercial sized HEPA air filtration units, protective gear, HEPA vacuums, specialized cleaning agents, and can do a wet extraction to keep mold spores from spreading. The general public does not usually have knowledge of or access to such equipment.
  • Mold is voracious: Mold is known to eat nearly anything including wood, fabrics, plastics, concrete, and even metals.


Finally, one way we help our customers, apart from removing and remediating mold is to educate them in ways to prevent mold from becoming a problem in the future. Thus, knowledge protects families and makes our job easier.
