From aspergillus to black mold, we've seen it all. Mold is a fungus that loves dark, damp, enclosed areas like wall cavities and air ducts. They usually affect basements, crawl spaces, bathrooms, and attics. Exposure to mold spores can lead to some serious symptoms, such as shortness of breath, throat irritation, and even memory loss. Black mold in particular can even destroy neurons, resulting in mental impairment. This is why it's recommended to use a licensed mold removal expert.
Starting with a Mold Inspection
If you're at the stage where you don't know if mold is present in your home or business, request a mold inspection. Our technicians will come over and determine what mold levels are like. We'll note any areas with a high concentration of it. For the best results, we can take air samples and have them analyzed.
You may have noticed some mysterious spots around your property. Let us check and see if they're really mold or not. Black mold, for example, has a slimy appearance that we'll instantly recognize. In many cases, though, spots can be just a sign of discoloration.
We want customers to know beforehand that a 100% mold removal is impossible because this fungus can never leave the atmosphere. However, mold removal is good for those areas where you see a lot of the fungus. Our team will put on all the necessary safety gear, vacuum up the mold using HEPA-filtered vacuums, damp wipe the surfaces with a non-toxic antimicrobial chemical, and set up an air scrubber to catch the airborne spores.
Surfaces that retain traces of mold can be encapsulated so that the spores don't spread. As for structures that have suffered from extensive dry rot, we'll recommend that they be replaced.
from growing in those problem areas like the basement. After a mold removal job, we can present you with several preventative measures. We can waterproof your basement walls with a concrete sealant and encapsulate your crawl space with a thick plastic membrane called a vapor barrier. You might also consider getting a dehumidifier.
Because of our membership in the Mold Inspection Consulting and Remediation Organization (MICRO), we have access to top-notch mold remediation equipment, so whether you're faced with black mold, yellow mold, or botrytis, we'll know how to address your situation.
