Negative Health Effects Associated with Mold

When moisture problems occur and mold growth results, building occupants may begin to report odors and a variety of health problems, such as headaches, breathing difficulties, skin irritation, allergic reactions, and aggravation of asthma symptoms; all of these symptoms could potentially be associated with mold exposure.

All molds have the potential to cause health effects. Molds produce allergens, irritants, and in some cases, toxins that may cause reactions in humans. The types and severity of symptoms depend, in part, on the types of mold present, the extent of an individual’s exposure, the ages of the individuals, and their existing sensitivities or allergies.

What needs to be done some materials will need to be disposed of, such as ceiling tiles, insulation, wallboards, carpet, soft furnishings, clothes, papers and books. Non-porous metals, glass and hard plastics may be cleaned and reused. Depending on the degree of mold damage, semi porous wood may be cleaned up by drying, sanding and treating with anti-microbial solvent before reusing.

Moisture Control

The EPA reports that molds can be found almost anywhere; they can grow on virtually any organic substance, as long as moisture and oxygen are present. There are molds that can grow on wood, paper, carpet, foods, and insulation. When excessive moisture accumulates in buildings or on building materials, mold growth will often occur, particularly if the moisture problem remains undiscovered or unaddressed.

First the contaminated area is sealed off using plastic sheeting, then we create negative air pressure to direct the mold to prevent mold spores from spreading to other parts of the house, directing the mold away from indoor space.m

Mold Testing

 Mold testing is a key determining factor in how contaminated an area may be. First and foremost it is import to be able to identify the specific type of mold as there are countless types. Some are more common for indoor environments and some to outdoor environments. Specific molds can contain mycotoxin, which can release harmful mold spores into the air and could later be inhaled.

Mold is caused by above average moisture levels usually caused from flooding or poor ventilation. Molds occur almost anywhere, especially beneath surfaces that have been subjected to water damage like walls, floors and ceilings.

Our mold testing specialist are professional and will arrive at your home to test the air and materials to determine if there are any harmful molds present. If mold is detected, our staff will take the necessary steps to determine its cause and origin. Upper Restoration’s professional mold testing team uses special equipment, and tools to collect air samples, swab samples, conduct visual inspections, test moisture readings, thermal imaging, relative humidity, and complete a building analysis to determine if the mold is a concern. The collected samples are then brought to our certified lab to discover which kinds of molds are present, and their threat level. Certified indoor air quality tests will be an asset in filing insurance claims if covered in your policy.

The next step would be to proceed with Upper Restoration’s mold removal service to eradicate the contaminated areas and restore them to their original state. Our certified removal specialist will remove visible and hidden mildew. Upper Restoration will clean the air with specialized ventilation equipment, clean surfaces, and apply antimicrobial substances to contaminated areas.. Post completion of the mold removal process, our remediation team will conduct a clearance test to confirm that the mold has been fully eradicated.
