What is Mold?
According to the EPA, molds are part of the natural environment, and can be found everywhere, indoors and outdoors (including dry climates). Mold is not usually a problem, unless it begins growing indoors. Growth is usually triggered by the presence of water (through floods, leaks or rising humidity) and of food (organic building materials) and can occur in as little as 72 hours.
Molds have the potential to cause health problems and can produce allergens (substances that can cause allergic reactions) and irritants. Inhaling or touching mold or mold spores may cause allergic reactions in sensitive individuals. Allergic responses include hay fever-type symptoms, such as sneezing, runny nose, red eyes, and skin rash. These reactions are common.
CAUSES OF MOLD
- Untreated water damage
- Hidden moisture trapped in building materials (roofs, insulation, building foundation, walls, ceilings, windows)
- Items which have been wet for an extended period of time (rugs, floor coverings)
- Excessive humidity in the air
- Roof leaks
Expert Mold Recovery Required
Mold can grow where the eye can’t see. Improper mold removal can cause the spreading of mold spores, making your mold problem worse. Safe mold removal requires an expert team that solves the problem at its source.
What We Do
What does Professional Mold Remediation Involve?
Helpers is a Certified Mold Remediation firm that understands the science behind mold and mold growth. We are professionals, with training and expertise, to get your mold levels black to normal, natural, and safe levels.
Every mold damage scenario is different and requires a unique solution. Complete mold remediation procedures are necessary to insure that mold does not return. These steps may include:
• Locating the Source
Mold feeds on natural building materials (drywall, wood) and water sources are often hidden. There are various technologies used to detect mold and hidden water sources during an inspection.
• Mold Containment
Containment is constructed around mold along with air moving and filtration systems to prevent the spread of mold spores to other locations in your home or business.
• Air Filtration
Specialized filtration equipment allows the capture of microscopic mold spores out of the air. Powerful “air scrubbers” and HEPA vacuums are utilized to prevent the spread of these mold spores while the mold remediation is in process.
• Removing Mold-Infested Materials
The extent of mold growth will determine the nature of the remediation process. Anti-fungal and antimicrobial treatments may be used to help eliminate mold colonies. Removing and disposing of mold-infested materials, like drywall and carpeting, may be necessary to remediate heavy mold growth.
• Cleaning Contents and Belongings
The process may require cleaning your furniture, decorative items, curtains, clothing, and other restorable items affected by mold.
Depending upon the level of mold damage, drywall, flooring, and other building materials may be removed. Restoration may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall, painting, and installing new carpet; or it may entail major repairs such as the reconstruction of various areas or rooms in a home or business.
