On the news almost every day we see homes and business structures destroyed. Some fall to flames, others to floods.
At Green Clean Restoration LLC, we often encounter homes destroyed from the inside out due to mold. While mold does not pull the building down, its spores and the dangerous health effects it causes can make buildings uninhabitable.
We practice ecologically safe mold cleanup techniques to ensure that the mold problem does not grow into either a problem in the building or for the general environment.
Where Does Mold Come From?
Mold most often comes from water damage. Many associate mold growth with floodwaters rising into a home and saturating wood, drywall, and other materials. Flooding does introduce mold and other contaminants into structures, but other problems can be even more insidious.
Unseen leaks can also cause problems. Whether water come from leaky pipes, rainwater seeping into the structure, or standing water in contact with the building, mold can develop and grow unchecked.
Additionally, the Chesapeake Bay area experiences sufficient moisture and humidity to boost mold growth once it starts.
Why Is Mold Dangerous?
While all molds can spark allergic and other reactions, experts say that structural owners should stay extra wary of Stachybotrys chartarum. Known commonly as black mold, it releases dangerous spores in the air as it consumes organic materials in building materials.
These spores can provoke a number of allergic and respiratory responses. Mycotoxins released in the air can cause coughing, choking, chronic fatigue, and even more serious conditions.
All molds produce a distinct and unpleasant odor that by itself can adversely affect the value of a building. Blooms left unchecked can ruin walls, ceilings, flooring, and more.
How Do We Remove Mold From Your Home Or Business?
First, we locate the source of the problem. In most cases, owners detect the odor before actually finding the source. Mold prefers to grow in dark recesses in poorly ventilated areas, often far from areas where people normally go in a building.
Once we locate the source of mold, we work on removing it before it poses further dangers to the structure or its inhabitants and workers. We may also recommend that structure owners have the water source eliminated, if one has caused the mold issue.
Finally, we remove mold using the Caltex system. This USDA-approved method uses environmentally sensitive, organic, non-toxic, and biodegradable substances to remove mold. We selected the Caltex system because is provided the safest way to remove mold without using substances that can harm people and animals or adversely affect the environment
