Professional, expert mold remediation is your only solution.
Water damage caused by burst hoses and pipes, sump pump failure, sewage backup, overflowing toilets and bathtubs, water heater leaks, and faulty appliances is costly, and more importantly, it can cause health risks because of mold growth.
Molds are a fungus that develops in the structure of multicellular filaments called hyphal fragments. The perfect conditions for mold growth are damp, humid, and warm environments. Molds reproduce and spread by making spores. Mold is a derelict. It can survive dry conditions that do not typically support mold growth.
What do you do when you see mold on food? You throw it into the garbage can. Why? Because you know that mold can cause you to become sick. However, do you know how unhealthy it can make you?
Some people are highly sensitive to molds. Exposure to molds can result in a stuffy nose, red or itchy eyes or skin, irregular blood pressure, urinary problems, and wheezing symptoms, caused by water damage. Others with allergies to mold often experience more severe conditions, such as the development of and increased asthma attacks, fever, shortness of breath, respiratory infections, and coughing.
People with suppressed immune systems like cancer patients, those who received stem cell or organ transplants, and others taking medications that compromise the immune system are more likely to get mold infections.
Beyond the health risks, you may be at risk of property damage and tremendous financial losses, due to mold’s cousin – rot. In your home or building, rot can occur almost anywhere. The most commons places where rot develops is girders, sill plates, floor joists; basically, the entire structural system beneath your home.
Throughout your property, mold remediation is an intensive, exhaustive, and time-consuming process:
- Find the Source
- Contaminant Control
- Establish Negative Air Pressure
- Remove & Clean
- Air Duct & HVAC System Cleaning
- Post-Remediation Testing
The “DIY” (Do-It-Yourself) method is not useful, practical, or the correct treatment for mold remediation. Unless you have the technical expertise, education, knowledge, and leading-edge tools, equipment, and ability to perform post-remediation testing, it is unlikely that you will solve the problem.
