How We Remove Your Mold
The very first thing we do when we are dealing with mold is to find out, and locate what is the cause. After we have found, and located the cause we correct it. The only reason excessive mold forms is due to excessive dampness. Once the cause of moisture is located we work to correct that problem, and then we go about removing and sanitizing all mold contaminated services with the following methods.
Mold Spot Repair is utilized for minor mold disturbances. This is usually solved once the water issue is eliminated, the mold is removed, and the surfaces are appropriately sanitized and lock down.
Full Removal of Mold is a more tenuous process of removing all contaminated objects, and surfaces of mold. This is a much more complicated procedure due to the gross contamination of multiple surfaces, and locations throughout a facility. Upon mold remediation a visual inspection, and a final air clearance test is performed to confirm that all mold, and spores are within acceptable state and federal regulations.
Molds can be found almost anywhere; they can grow on virtually any organic substance, as long as moisture and oxygen are present. There are molds that can grow on wood, paper, carpet, foods, and insulation. When excessive moisture accumulates in buildings or on building materials, mold growth will often occur, particularly if the moisture problem remains undiscovered or unaddressed. It is impossible to eliminate all mold and mold spores in the indoor environment. However, mold growth can be controlled indoors by controlling moisture indoors.
Many types of molds exist. All molds have the potential to cause health effects. Molds can produce allergens that can trigger allergic reactions or even asthma attacks in people allergic to mold. Others are known to produce potent toxins and/or irritants. Potential health concerns are an important reason to prevent mold growth and to remediate/clean up any existing indoor mold growth.
Since mold requires water to grow, it is important to prevent moisture problems in buildings. Moisture problems can have many causes, including uncontrolled humidity. Some moisture problems in buildings have been linked to changes in building construction practices during the 1970s, 80s, and 90s. Some of these changes have resulted in buildings that are tightly sealed, but may lack adequate ventilation, potentially leading to moisture buildup. Building materials, such as drywall, may not allow moisture to escape easily. Moisture problems may include roof leaks, landscaping or gutters that direct water into or under the building, and unvented combustion appliances
