Causes of Mold
Mold is pervasive in nature. It occurs where flooding or dampness exists or water was not thoroughly removed and dried from an area in your home where some water event occurred, such as a basement flood from a storm, a burst pipe, or water leftover from putting out a fire. If water was not completely extracted and the affected area dried, mold and fungus can appear. And, if not properly treated, it becomes hazardous to human health, causing respiratory problems and allergic reactions. Some fungi produce mycotoxins which put both humans and animals at risk, as constant exposure to high levels of these toxins may result in serious neurological problems.
Fungi is the main cause of mold and can be found anywhere dampness is present in your home. They reproduce by means of airborne spores, and vary according to air temperature, the level of dampness, and the amount of concentration of impurities present. When mold spores come into contact with a damp or wet surface, they grow. At this point, unless there is professional intervention, the atmosphere becomes dangerously saturated.
Mold can also be caused as a result of water damage from leaky roofs; flooding and storms; indoor plumbing issues such as overflowing sinks, tubs, or toilets; or improper or insufficient ventilation of concrete materials. Mildew grows in basements where vapor barriers are not present. Even dirt floors encourage fungus growth.
How to fight mold?
The Water Removal Pros follow a three-step process in remediating mold infestations.
Given mold’s pervasive nature, mold eruptions are common in homes where dampness and moisture occurs for any reason—even from humidity. The first step in the Water Removal Pros mold assessment and remediation process is to ascertain the extent of the mold infestation and the potential for mold to spread to other parts of your home. Our professionals are trained to locate fungus growth and determine the best solution to the problem.
An efficient mold inspection is critical to the remediation process. Our mold remediation professionals perform a thorough onsite examination to test for the presence of mold, targeting areas with moisture problems and also those with some amount of humidity or dampness. In the course of their inspection our inspectors will: move furniture; check window panes, ventilation ducts, and wall cavities for fungus growth; and even check behind wall paper for hidden mold. If mold is detected, they next decide the best type and level of mold remediation that is needed. By correctly identifying the contagion level (identified as levels I-IV), we are able to plan the most effective course of remediation and protective steps.
The first step in solving a mold problem is to go right to the source of dampness or humidity and eliminate it. Our Pros take whatever step is necessary to most effectively stop the growth of additional mold, including allowing sunlight to permeate the affected area, providing suitable ventilation to the affected room(s), insulating the walls, and placing dehumidifiers to extract dampness.
After fixing humidity problems, our technicians work on cleaning affected areas. Our professional mold remediation includes the use of dry fog in combination with an EPA-approved chemical to kill mildew and protect the atmosphere. These steps help eliminate associated odors and prevent further mold growth.
