Mold Remediation

12/30/2020 (Permalink)

Mold growth can cause issues from headaches and nasal congestions to rashes and respiratory problems.

The most common types of mold include aspergillus, cladosporium and stachybotrys atra (also known as black mold). Aspergillus is a fairly allergenic mold that is commonly found on foods and in home air conditioning systems. Mold around windows (or on them) is caused by the combination of moisture, poor ventilation, and residue.

Continuous rain creates wetness that lasts for days. Combine this with the poor ventilation system, and you get a recipe for ideal mold habitat. Poor ventilation also causes moisture to build up inside the window.

At the core of our mold remediation process is not only mold removal, but eliminating the source that is causing the mold. As part of our full assessment, we will put together a comprehensive plan for stopping mold growth, followed by a full cleanup and removal of the existing mold. Typical solutions to a mold problem include increased ventilation, exposure to sunlight, dehumidifiers and general cleanup. Depending on your individual situation, we will employ the method that is most applicable. After we have determined what is causing the mold and taken steps to fix it, we can then begin the cleanup process. In order for a mold remediation to be considered complete, all mold must be completely removed from the affected area. Due to its nature, mold spores can affect humans even when it is dead. Because of this, chemical treatments alone are not enough.
