Mold spores are everywhere. In the air and on surfaces. When their environment becomes warm and humid, they flourish. The most common events that promote mold growth are pipe leaks, sewer back-ups, and water damage. Mold lives and thrives on organic materials such as wood, paper, cotton, wool, and many others. The digestive by-product of mold produces a musty odor. The majority of molds most of us encounter don’t pose health hazards to healthy people, but overexposure can trigger or worsen problems like hay fever and allergies. Overexposure may lead to respiratory and sinus problems including coughing, congestion, runny nose, eye irritation, and increased asthma troubles. Encounters with toxic molds, which can cause life-threatening illnesses, are fairly rare.
Mold spores are equally harmful whether dead or alive. Spores must be removed to ensure a safe environment. Isolating the contaminated area is critical to minimize further contamination. Ventilation systems must be turned off and sealed. Decontamination areas are carefully planned and established. Special air control and filtration systems are in place at all times during the cleaning and removal process. Tests are conducted before and after every remediation job to insure success.
Mold is a type of fungus. In normal situations, it can be completely harmless. In excessive amounts and conditions, however, mold can cause structural damage to buildings and serious health problems for humans.
Containment, reduction, or elimination of moisture levels to prevent further mold growth. Plus, the removal of materials that have mold and fungi growth on them.
