 Mold Remediation Procedures - Mold Removal Equipment


 
Mold Remediation Procedures ::
1) We set-up a proper containment area to prevent the spread of mold spores from the contaminated work area. Then, a hepa air scrubbing machine is installed to remove air-born mold spores during the mold removal procedures. 
2) Removing the Mold Contaminated Materials:  We then remove and dispose of all porous, contaminated materials.
 
3) Killing and Cleaning the Mold:  Then, our Mold Remediation Technology is applied by trained, professional technicians. We'll apply a moldicide/cleaner/sanitizer/ disinfectant specifically formulated for mold remediation that will kill all surface molds. We'll then apply a stain remover that will remove the mold staining on the remaining surfaces. We then perform an additional step that most mold remediation companies skip -  We treat the wall and or ceiling materials with a long lasting, odorless fungicide that is designed to penetrate deeper into the wood to kill the mold roots (hyphae) and prevent mold re-growth. 
                    
           4) A anti-microbial encapsulant sealant can also be applied.  We use different types for various areas. 
Note: We also offer CO2 dry-ice blast cleaning for mold removal from mold contaminated attic ceilings and for fire damage restoration. See - Dry-Ice Blasting Page

Note: Mold remediation is very case specific. Our treatments are tailored to the unique situation of each property. Sometimes elderly or sick people can't leave the premises. Some basements have flooding or moisture problems. Some attics have ventilation problems or ice dams. All these conditions will need to be considered before a proper mold remediation plan can be written.


Mold Abatement Equipment ::
We have the latest in Dry-Ice Blasting Machines, High Capacity Air Compressors, Air Scrubbing Machines, Negative Air Pressure Machines, High Capacity Dehumidifiers, Air Moving Equipment
, Power Foggers, Powered Air-less Sprayers

Mold Remediation Certification ::
 
                   

Post-Testing ::
Is it gone?   How do I know?   After a mold remediation job has been completed, our company can perform additional mold testing to the treated areas in the environment where the risks were identified and a mold removal procedure was performed. These can be either indoor air testing or direct sample re-testing. Data analysis from these new culture surveys is made available to the client on a confidential basis. At that point we can provide a scientific-based before and after evaluation of our work to demonstrate and to provide assurance that the building is safe.

Prevention ::
How can I stop mold from returning after I have had a mold remediation treatment performed?   Find the water intrusion source(s) and correct them.
          
          If the mold problem was in the basement:
 
Make sure gutters take roof water at least 10 ft. away from exterior foundation
        Seal any foundation or basement floor cracks
Cover dirt crawlspaces with poly
        Run a de-humidifier
 
If the mold problem was in the attic:

          Check the attic roof for leaks after a heavy rain
        Prevent winter ice dams on roof
        Make sure upstairs bathroom is venting outside - not inside attic
        Check attic soffit vents - make sure they are not covered with insulation
        Homes should have roof ridge vents in the attic peak
        If no ridge vents are installed - side vents and 1 or more roof vents are needed
 

Health Effects of Mold - Mold Symptoms

 


What mold symptoms are commonly seen with mold exposure?

• Exposure to mold can produce adverse health effects through inflammation, allergy, or infection. Allergic reactions (often referred to as hay fever) are most common following mold exposure. Typical symptoms that mold-exposed persons report (alone or in combination) include: Respiratory problems, such as wheezing, difficulty breathing, and shortness of breath Nasal and sinus congestion • Eye irritation (burning, watery, or reddened eyes) • Post nasal drip, dry hacking cough • Nose or throat irritation • Skin rashes or irritation Headaches, memory problems, mood swings, nosebleeds, body aches and pains, and fevers are occasionally reported in mold cases.

How much mold can make me sick?

It depends. For some people, a relatively small number of mold spores can trigger an asthma attack or lead to other health problems. For other persons, symptoms may occur only when exposure levels are much higher. Nonetheless, indoor mold growth is unsanitary and undesirable. Basically, if you can see or smell mold inside your home, take steps to identify and eliminate the excess moisture , cleanup and remove the mold immediately.

Are some molds more hazardous than others?

Allergic persons vary in their sensitivities to mold, both as to the amount and the types to which they react. In addition to their allergic properties, certain types of molds, such as Stachybotris chartarum, may produce compounds that have toxic properties, which are called mycotoxins. Mycotoxins are not always produced, and whether a mold produces mycotoxins depends on what the mold is growing on. Conditions such as temperature, pH, humidity or other unknown factors play an important role. When mycotoxins are present, they occur in both living and dead mold spores and may be present in materials that have become contaminated with molds. While Stachybotrys is growing, a wet slime layer covers its spores, preventing them from becoming airborne. However, when the mold dies and dries up, air currents or physical handling can cause spores to become airborne. At present there is no environmental test to determine whether Stachybotrys growth found in buildings is producing toxins. There is also no blood or urine test that can establish if an individual has been exposed to Stachybotrys chartarum spores or its toxins.

Who is at greater risk when exposed to mold?

Exposure to mold is not healthy for anyone inside buildings. Therefore, it is always best to identify and correct high moisture conditions quickly before mold grows and health problems develop. Some people may have more severe symptoms or become ill more rapidly than others: • Individuals with existing respiratory conditions, such as allergies, chemical sensitivities, or asthma. • Persons with weakened immune systems (such as people with HIV infection, cancer chemotherapy patients, and so forth) • Infants and young children • The elderly, anyone with health problems they believe are due to molds should consult a medical professional. Additional fact sheets on Mold and Health Effects are available from CDHS: • Health Effects of Toxin-Producing Molds  • Stachybotrys chartarum (atra) ‹ a mold that may be found in water damage homes. • Fungi and Indoor Air Quality • Misinterpretation of Stachybotrys Serology
