What Causes Mold?
Mold is a common fungus discovered inside and outside, almost everywhere, year-round. Mold grows in mild, damp environments and moves through the air. Once it takes hold, it can increase quickly in high moisture surroundings like basements, bathrooms, and crawlspaces.
Mold removal projects can also be complicated; therefore hire a professional is the best option. Mold removal and remediation permanently stop the source of moisture that allows mold to grow, so it stops it’s further spread.
Where Is Mold Found?
Mold can be found almost anywhere; it can grow on virtually any organic substance, as long as moisture and oxygen are present. When excessive moisture accumulates in buildings or on building materials, mold growth will often occur, particularly if the moisture problem remains undiscovered or unaddressed.
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, which if left unsolved can lead to mold growth. Other moisture problems may occur from
roof leaks, landscaping or gutters that direct water into or under the building, and unvented combustion appliances.
How We Remediate Your Mold?
The first thing we do when we are dealing with mold is to find out, and locate what is causing the mold growth. Typically, the main reason for mold growth is due to excessive and untreated moisture sources. We always recommend our clients to use dehumidifying units in areas that are known to be damp, especially basements.
Once the issue is located, the next step is to work on correcting this problem. After the source of moisture is fixed, we then perform the remediation and sanitization of all contaminated surfaces utilizing the following methods:
Mold Spot Repairs are 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 locked down.
Full Mold Remediation is required on large-scale projects where a vast majority of materials are affected and cannot be salvaged (specifically porous items/building materials). This type of remediation often deals with the gross decontamination of multiple surfaces (and sometimes locations) throughout a facility. During this process, clients can expect the following:
What Are The Dangers Of Mold?
Mold is not usually a problem indoors — unless mold spores land on a wet or damp spot and begin growing. As molds grow they digest whatever they are growing on. Unchecked mold growth can:
Damage buildings and furnishings
Cause structural damage to buildings
Cause cosmetic damage, such as stains, to furnishings
The potential human health effects of mold are also a concern. Mold can produce allergens that can trigger allergic reactions or even asthma attacks in people allergic to mold. Others are known to produce toxins and/or irritants. It is important, therefore, to prevent mold from growing indoors.
Interior demolition to access all affected areas
Thorough cleaning utilizing antimicrobial agents to destroy active mold-spores
Encapsulation to prevent future mold-growth
