According to the EPA
"Molds are usually not a problem indoors, unless mold spores land on a wet or damp spot and begin growing. Molds have the potential to cause health problems. Molds produce allergens (substances that can cause allergic reactions) and irritants. Inhaling or touching mold or mold spores may cause allergic reactions in sensitive individuals.
Allergic reactions to mold are common. They can be immediate or delayed. Molds can also cause asthma attacks in people with asthma who are allergic to mold. In addition, mold exposure can irritate the eyes, skin, nose, throat, and lungs of both mold-allergic and non-allergic people."
SUSTAINERGY's THREE P's OF MOLD REMEDIATION
Preperation: Diagnosing and confirming the cause of the mold problem has be solved. In addition an expert mold specialist will be on site with certification available upon request. And finally quarantining the contaminated area.
Performing Remediation: Setting up the negative air machine (when the job calls for it). Spraying down the contaminated area with mold killing solution and scrubbing the area Repeating as needed (based on amount of contamination). Cleaning entire quarantined area HEPA vacuum.
Prevention: Leaving negative air machine and allowing contaminated area to dry, returning for multiple visits (only necessary for cases extreme contamination). Once the remediation expert confirms the mold has successfully been eradicated techs will apply the formerly contaminated area with a coat of IAQ rated mold prevention paint.
