Mold growth should not be allowed to proliferate in Building materials it will cause structural damage, furnishings with cushions can become breeding grounds for mold, all this can cause serious health problems to people living or working in the space. Some dead molds are still allergenic, and some dead molds are potentially toxic. Just because it’s dead doesn’t mean your problems are solved.
According to: ACGIH (American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists) guidelines states that the indoor air quality is compromised if the individual mold spore count is ten times or greater indoors than outdoors. Reference: ACGIH Bioaerosol Assessment and Control pages 14-6 and 14-7 and IESO 2210 5.1.2
4) The way you respond to a mold damage & the procedures used can directly affect the outcome of the project. Our team of experts are well trained in containment setup & establishing negative air. Containment can be setup in a wide variety of ways, sealing off one or two areas, making a clean room to store furniture and belongings to insure no cross contamination, or containing the whole home, etc..., these are just a few ways containments can be used to limit exposure or cross contamination,
please see Mold Remediation Procedures for more information
1) Identify the extent of mold damage and moisture intrusion, Humidity issues, or condensation problems. Plan and implement Remediation Procedures that limit exposure and cross contamination potentials.
3) Eliminate moisture intrusion sources, drying the affected materials, and decontaminating or removing any mold damaged materials that cannot be salvaged during the Mold cleanup process. When dealing with mold damages the most important part is to make sure the source of water or moisture intrusion has been eliminated, to insure the problem doesn’t reoccur.
