Mold Remediation A&M Waterproofing
Mold growth of any type in a building is unhealthy and can lead to significant damage to the materials it grows on. Let A&M take care of the problem for you.
Mold remediation encompasses identifying and addressing mold issues in a structure. Mold remediation prevents the spread of mold by isolating damaged areas, removing affected material and eliminating moisture sources – the cause of the mold – in order to reestablish a healthy environment.
Building materials and personal belongings in your home can be affected. Since mold is a living organism and deeply ingrains itself into materials to survive, it is best to dispose of anything porous. The safest and most effective way to ensure mold doesn’t return is to remove affected material. Nonporous materials can be cleaned with antimicrobial cleaners and sealants may be used to make treated areas more resistant to water and mold. You may need to have your heating and air conditioning systems professionally cleaned as well.
The reconstruction process will begin after all mold-contaminated materials are removed. Clean, mold-free materials will replace what was previously contaminated.
Crawl Space Mold Remediation
Mold grows quickly in dark, damp places such as basements, attics, and crawl spaces. Under the right conditions in these ares mold can grow very quickly, causing health risks and potential structural damage.
Health Risks of Mold
Due to the health risks associated with mold exposure, it is best to have mold remediation conducted as soon as possible. Though the type of reaction depends upon the mold present, according to both the EPA and CDC all molds have the potential to cause health issues such as:
Persistent cough or cold symptoms
Burning or irritation of the eyes, nose, throat or lungs
Opportunistic infections in immune-compromised individuals
