Remediation of mold and fungus

Mold is a natural mechanism due to the decomposition of dead organic materials that were once alive, such as trees, leaves, cotton, wool, leather, etc., they are called mold spoilage and can often be found in buildings. Molds are part of the natural environment and are found everywhere, both inside and outside. Molds and fungi play a very important role in maintaining the balance of nature, but these actions created by Mother Nature can cause a dangerous reaction to human health when inhaled.

Mold needs moisture to grow. Although mold spores and mold fragments are found everywhere in our environment, they can’t be activated or grow without water. Since we built most of our structures with sustainable building materials like wood, which is an organic material that used to be alive, these buildings are actually potential producers of mold. One simply needs to add water.

Molds grow in a very humid environment, such as basements, inside kitchen cupboards and bathrooms, in between the walls, for example if there’s a leak in the plumbing or a faulty drain, sometimes this process can take months and years can go by before you realize that a contamination has moved in, without your permission, that can weaken your immune system or even sicken one or more members of your family such as those suffering from asthma, there is evidence that mold can affect those who have weak immune systems and infants, so in this case remediation is really urgent.

Fungi or better known as mushrooms, for example: serpula lacrymans, are organisms that are bad for the health, which can be very dangerous when inhaled and can destruct building structures if they are neglected, it takes less than 20% moisture and a bit of shade to grow a fungus. Ideal locations for these beings are crawl spaces, basements, attics … and they may damage your materials and your structure without you knowing it. Immediate action is required before it’s too late.

Our technicians, who are specialized in this field, will inform you from beginning to end on the project that you have to realize. We are certified by the IICRC (Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification) a certification institution for technicians in the field of inspection, cleaning and restoration after a disaster in North America. A globally recognized organization. And also by the RSA (Restoration Sciences Academy) Academy of scientific restoration and organization recognized in North America.
