Mold Removal/Remediation

As a 3rd generation contractor, our experience gives us the understanding of how buildings work and where and why they leak. Our trained Certified Mold Remediation Inspectors have an understanding of mold itself, in finding hidden mold problems, and in specifying the cleanup work ("remediation") needed. We examine entire structures, inside and out. This gives us confidence that we understand the building, how it works, and where the risks and problems lie.

Why investigate your house for mold?

Here are a few reasons to consider a on-site investigation for toxic or allergenic mold:

  1. At-Risk Residents: People in the building are at particular health risk elderly, infant, immune-impaired, asthmatic, history of respiratory illness or other medical complaints which might be caused or aggravated by mold, allergens, or other aioaerosols.
  2. Symptoms Observed: People in the building are sick and there is reason to suspect that the building is causing or contributing to health or air quality.
  3. Water Damage Found: The building has or is suspected of having had a history of leak events or even a single event which flooded some areas and caused plumbing leaks, roof leaks, ice dam leaks, basement water entry, sewer backup, ventilation problems, air conditioning problems, or forced air central heating/cooling concerns. If hidden building cavities are wet, the mold you see may be the tip of a "mold iceberg" that needs an expert to find the extent and cause of the mold and to remove it.

Symptoms that are caused by mold can include allergies, asthma, respiratory problems, nasal congestion, skin rash, muscle cramps, fatigue, nausea, sinus infection, dizziness, brain damage, nose bleeding, headaches, memory loss, chronic fatigue, and difficulty breathing.

Why is mold such a problem now?

Compared to just 20 years ago, the number of mold claims being filed has jumped significantly. Why? One reason is that the public is more knowledgeable. 20 years ago, not as much was known about mold, including the health risks, or that it could be prevented. The public is also now aware that, if left untreated, there is negligence that can be claimed against another party.

Also, people are spending more time indoors, either working or relaxing at home. It's not every day that a new legitimate industry comes on the coattails of new medical discoveries such as mold contaminating causing illness in humans

What causes mold?

Mold is more common than people realize. Mold spores are present in every home and every building. It is impractical to eliminate all mold spores in the air, but it is possible to prevent them from growing. Moisture is the number one cause of mold. Moisture related damage is common, and many states deal with humidity problems every year. In addition, it is common to see damage because of leaks.
