What's Your Favorite Cheese?

8/16/2022 (Permalink)

Variety of Cheese Some cheese contains mold.

If you are anything like me, you could not imagine life without cheese. Swiss, provolone, sharp cheddar and, maybe my favorite, bleu cheese. Making a salad? Don’t forget the banana peppers and bleu cheese. Having a cheeseburger? You’d better get some bleu cheese crumbles on there. Yes, cheese is incredible and bleu cheese amongst the top tiers of the cheese hierarchy.

I still remember the day I learned that bleu (and numerous other cheeses) are primarily mold. Some scars you feel forever.

While some molds are useful, some are rather dangerous. Out of the thousands of different types of molds people come into regular contact with, some should be avoided at all costs. For instance, have you ever heard of the Stachybotrys family of mold? No? How about it’s more commonly used name, black mold?

Black mold is one of the more common types of mold that grows in residential and business properties when unchecked moisture is allowed to grow in specific conditions. It is toxic and can lead to some serious health consequences. What’s worse is that it can never truly be removed entirely.

SERVPRO of Walnut specializes in mold remediation. This is essentially just making sure the amount of materials that lead to mold formation are kept in check to make sure black mold does not grow. We do this by using proprietary products and methods we have developed in our 50+ years of being in business.
