MOLD

CAUSES OF MOLD

  • Untreated water damage
  • Hidden moisture trapped in building materials (roofs, insulation, building foundation, walls, ceilings, windows)
  • Items which have retained moisture for an extended period of time (rugs, floor coverings)
  • Excessive humidity in the air
  • Roof leaks
  • Flooding

When there is moisture, there is a possibility for mold. If you happen to come across a spot you think might be moldy, leave it and call us immediately to come and assess the damage. A small amount of mold can pose a serious threat to people who suffer from asthma, allergies, or weaker immune systems.

WHAT WE DO

  • Assess the location, source, and extent of the mold
  • Report what can be restored and what must be replaced
  • Create an airtight seal of the affected area to contain the mold
  • Re-mediate all visible mold from the affected area
  • Remove mold spores from building with HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) air filters
  • Trap and remove mold with a HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) vacuum
  • Remove affected building materials
  • Use third-party testing to be sure all mold has been safely removed (known as “clearance testing”)
  • Use chemical sealants on the restored area to prevent mold regrowth
  • Ensure that the moisture problem has been resolved to prevent re-contamination
  • Replace building materials, when appropriate
