Services – Mold Remediation

Concern about indoor exposure to mold has been increasing as the public becomes aware that exposure to mold can cause a variety of health effects and symptoms, including allergic reactions.

Mold can be found almost anywhere; it can grow on virtually any organic substance, as long as moisture and oxygen are present. Mold 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. However, mold growth can be controlled indoors by controlling moisture indoors. Since mold requires water to grow, it is important t prevent moisture problems in buildings: *Moisture problems can have many causes, including uncontrolled humidity.

Building materials, such as drywall, may not allow moisture to escape easily. Moisture problems may include roof leaks, landscaping or gutters that direct water into or under the building, and invented combustion appliances. Delayed maintenance or insufficient maintenance is also associated with moisture problems in schools and large buildings. Moisture problems in portable classrooms and other temporal 7 structures have frequently been associated with mold problems.

Prevention
Fix leaky plumbing and leaks in the building envelope as soon as possible. Watch for condensation and wet spots. Fix source(s) of moisture problem(s) as soon as possible. Prevent moisture due to condensation by increasing surface temperature or reducing the moisture level in air (humidity). To increase surface temperature, insulate or increase air circulation. To reduce the moisture level M air, repair leaks, increase ventilation (if outside air is cold and dry), or dehumidify (if outdoor air is warm and humid). Keep heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) drip pans clean, flowing properly, and unobstructed. Vent moisture-generating appliances, such as dryers, to the outside where possible. Maintain low indoor humidity, below 60% relative humidity (RH), ideally 30-50%, if possible. Perform regular building/HVAC inspections and maintenance as scheduled. Clean and dry wet or damp spots within 48 hours. Don't 10 foundations stay wet. Provide drainage and slope the ground away from the foundation The General Moisture Solutions is using only non-toxic solvent for mold remediation.
