Got Mold?

When you think of mold, you probably envision dark and moist conditions, like those found in an old cellar. The reality is, however, that mold is a fungi and can be found both indoors and outdoors.  It thrives in damp environments, often as a result of flooding, humidity and poor ventilation.  And can grow on just about any surface, including paper, cardboard, ceiling tiles, wood products, paints, wallpaper, insulation, drywall, carpet, cloth, and upholstery.When you think of mold, you probably envision dark and moist conditions, like those found in an old cellar.

When mold is growing on a surface, spores can be released into the air where they can be easily inhaled.  Elevated concentrations of mold spores may cause health problems, including:

  • Allergic Reactions (Eye Irritation, Sneezing, Itching, Skin Redness or Rash)
  • Asthma Attacks
  • Lung Inflammation
  • Headaches
  • Breathing Disorders
  • Chronic Sinusitis and/or Bronchitis

Mold Remediation:

Mold remediation is a multi-step process that gets out-of-control fungi back to natural levels. Remediation also addresses the causes of a mold outbreak to help stop it from happening all over again. The remediation process requires specialized equipment and products to ensure the complete and safe removal of these dangerous spores while also taking measures to prevent new mold growth.  Dehumidifiers and blowers reduce the moisture content in the air of a specific area.  Antimicrobial chemicals are used to eliminate the mold and mold stains. Sealers or encapsulants make the treated areas more resistant to future water damage and mold growth.  Generally speaking, the steps to remediate mold involve:

  • Moisture source identification and repair – The first part of preventing mold growth is identifying the causes and eradicating them!
  • Containment of the area, set up of proper ventilation and personal protective equipment
  • Remove and replace any damaged porous materials (wood, sheetrock etc.)
  • Antimicrobial disinfection & cleaning of any remaining mold and mold stains
  • Application of a sealer or encapsulant to make the treated areas more resistant to mold and water damage
