What is Remediation?
Remediation is the process of cleaning the mold and eliminating the moisture problem. This process is determined by the size of the remediation and whether occupants are experiencing any adverse symptoms that may be related to the mold. Since mold, destroys the surface materials it is on, remediation can preserve the structural integrity of the building. Failure to address a mold problem, ultimately can result in high replacement and rebuild costs.
Why Does Mold Need to Be Remediated?
To reduce or prevent adverse health problems
To preserve the integrity of the structure
To avoid high replacement costs if addressed early on
To retain the beauty and cosmetic appeal of the structure
To be able to utilize the room(s) once again
To preserve resale value of the property
Where is Mold Commonly Located?
Basements near walls that have seepage problems
On attic walls, insulation, and ceilings near rook leaks
On and around wooden joists near pipe condensation
Under or around leaking air conditioning units
Near broken windows or broken window frames
Underneath wallpaper in poorly insulated/paneled areas
Near foundation cracks
On and around faulty external vents
Under linoleum near a sink leak
Under leaky sinks
On and around building infestation problems
On the underside of moist carpeting
Under wall paneling
On anything that contains cellulose, a food source for mold
Many more sources
Mold growth indoors may not always be in plain view. If a building smells moldy but you cannot see the source, or if you know there as been water leakage and building occupants are reporting health problems, there may be hidden mold.
What Are the Major Types of Mold?
Stachybotrys is one member of a group of molds. These molds produce airborne toxins. These molds can cause breathing difficulties, dizziness, memory and hearing loss, and flulike symptoms.
Cladosporium and Penicillium are more commonly found molds but these molds can cause allergic reactions, asthma, breathing problems, sinus infections, headaches, coughing and eye and throat irritation.
Memnoniella and Aspergillus versicolor are two types of mold that can produce airborne toxins. They produce mycotoxins and can cause even worse problems. These problems are chronic fatigue, loss of balance and memory, irritability and difficulty speaking.
