Mold Remediation, Anderson SC
Microscopic mold spores exist almost everywhere; outdoors and indoors, making it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. Some restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all mold, which is a fallacy.
Consider the following mold fact:
- Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
- Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air and may enter your home through windows, doors, AC/Heating System or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothes or on a pet.
- Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water.
- Before mold remediation can begin any sources of water or moisture must be addressed, otherwise the mold may return.
- Mold often produces a strong musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
- Even higher than normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Humidity should be kept below 45%.
Visual growth leads some to think they can safely remove the mold. Mold removal should only be performed by a licensed mold remediation service provider. Due to the health and safety risk; not to mention the liability associated with mold contamination. A licensed professional mold remediation company will use the safest and most effective equipment and procedures.
A disciplined mold remediation process will include containment and cleaning through the use of HEPA vacuuming, HEPA air filtering, antimicrobial wipe down and other specialized processes depending upon the severity of the issues. If this process is not followed exactly, disturbed mold releases airborne spores that will find new places to grow. Mold spores are so tiny that you can fit 50,000 mold spores on the tip of a pen! If proper tools and techniques are not used, any remaining mold spores will cause the mold infestation to return in other areas of the building. For this reason a third party clearance testing should be performed by an expert mold assessment consultant after the remediation project is completed.
