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 high powered 3 stage hepa filtered air scrubbing machine is installed to remove air-born mold spores during the mold removal procedures.
  2. Removing the Mold Contaminated Materials: We then carefully 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 kill and clean the mold using an EPA registered moldicide/cleaner/sanitizer/ disinfectant specifically formulated for mold remediation that will kill all types of mold & harmful bacteria. We'll then apply a mold stain remover that will remove the mold staining. We can make most mold stained wood looking like there was never a mold problem. Many companies will just skip this difficult part of the remediation process and leave much of the dark mold staining after cleaning the surfaces. This causes much concern for future buyers when their home inspector points out to them a potential mold problem.
  4. A quality anti-microbial protectant sealer coating can also be applied. We use different types for different conditions. This along with moisture control protects the wood against mold re-growth.

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.

How can I stop mold from returning after I have had a basement mold remediation treatment performed? Find the moisture or water intrusion source(s) and correct them.

If the mold problem was Basement Mold:

  • Make sure gutters take rain water at least 6 ft. away from exterior foundation
  • Seal any seeping basement foundation wall cracks.
  • Cover over dirt floor crawlspaces with poly
  • Run a self-draining de-humidifier from May 1st to November 1st

If the mold problem was Attic Ceiling Mold:

  • Make sure you have an ice-water shield membrane under lower roof shingles
  • Make sure the upstairs bathroom is venting outside - not inside the attic
  • Check attic soffit vents - make sure they are not blocked with insulation
  • Make sure this is a good high air-flow ridge vent installed
  • If no ridge vent is to be installed - multiple roof vents would be needed
  • The level of wintertime moisture in the house and attic could also be a factor
  • Note: We are very experienced in solving the real causes of attic ceiling mold growth

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.
