Mold spores can be found everywhere and can almost instantaneously infest a home or business with a susceptible environment such as warm, damp, and humid conditions. Mold can amplify throughout a property within 48 hours and introduce allergens & irritants that can cause adverse health effects. Our mold decontamination and restoration process include accessing the facility to identify the possible root causes of the mold infestation. This is followed by a detailed process of remediation to eliminate and restore the environment to be free from mold.

Health Effects of Mold Growth
We learn from CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) that exposure to damp and moldy environments may cause a variety of health effects, or none at all. Some people are sensitive to molds. For these people, exposure to molds can lead to symptoms such as stuffy nose, wheezing, and red or itchy eyes, or skin. Some people, such as those with allergies to molds or with asthma, may have more intense reactions.
In 2004 the Institute of Medicine (IOM) found there was sufficient evidence to link indoor exposure to mold with upper respiratory tract symptoms, cough, and wheeze in otherwise healthy people; with asthma symptoms in people with asthma; and with hypersensitivity pneumonitis in individuals susceptible to that immune-mediated condition.
Factors Causing Mold Infestation
- High relative humidity (RH) within building space
- Invasion of rainwater to the internal building environment
- Temperature differential within the building environment
- Fresh air intake issue into the AHU System
- Low air movement within the building environment
