Mold Abatement

About Mold
Mold needs only a damp, moist environment and organic material to establish itself and thrive. Roof and foundation leaks, high interior humidity, overflowing washing machines and more severe forms of flooding are common sources of moisture. Drywall backing, wallpaper, carpet backing, household dust and wood products are commonly attacked organicmaterials and eventually destroyed by it. The source of moisture must be identified and eliminated.


 

Some of the thousands of varieties of mold have been found to be toxic or give off toxic byproducts.People with low immune systems and newborn babies are more susceptible to possible health and respiratory problems from prolonged exposure to household mold. 

Removal (Abatement)
Abatement is the process of removing or restoring all contaminated building materials.  The level of remedial effort necessary is based on the extent and type of contamination present, especially if some of the more hazardous common mold types are predominant, such as stachybotrys. For cases involving hypersensitive responses (allergies), the level of abatement can be dependent on the degree of sensitivity exhibited by the exposed individuals. Medical and health related questions should be referred to a medical practicioner. 

Our work is done with the use of poly containment and negative pressure high volume HEPA air filtration devices that capture airborne mold and spores released during abatement work. Non-toxic chemicals are used to kill mold and spores while cleaning surfaces. Air testing may be conducted after abatement is completed.
