Mold spores spread by floating through the air, and are a natural part of the environment. Indoors, mold spores can land on moist surfaces and multiply quickly, causing potentially toxic reactions that can impact the quality of the air we breathe.
Older structures, properties with sub-par ventilation, and homes with a history of water damage are at a higher risk of mold or microbial growth.
Mold thrives in locations where there is access to moisture and warmth. While some chemicals like bleach can kill the surface growth, it does not address the source or further spread of the spores.
Our crew specializes in mold remediation and the restoration of mold damaged properties. Using industry standards set by Industrial Hygenists and highly trained technicians, we remediate the microbial growth and evacuate the spores in the air.
Mold removal is a multi-step process.
1) Discover the damage and locate the source
2) Mold testing to determine strain
3) Work up a remediation protocol
4) Mold removal and damage repair
5) Restore the property to pre-loss condition, and BETTER!
There are over a dozen strains of mold commonly found in homes. The most common types include aspergillus, cladosporium and stachybotrys atra (also known as black mold).
The rooms most commonly effected are kitchens, bathrooms, garages, and attics. Some of the sources we frequently see are water heaters, roof and plumbing leaks and poor shower ventilation.
Mold spreads through spores in the air, which also impacts your air quailty. Using a piece of equipment called an Air Scrubber, we can clear the air of most unwanted debris - and restore your peace of mind.
