Molds destroy their food source. Often times this means destroying our homes or workplace.
Different types of mold cause different health related issues. Anything from respiratory issues to confusion and depression.
Through our 3 step process we can determine the type of mold, where the moisture is coming from and remediate the damage. Leaving you with a safe and healthy environment!
Step 1. Through air testing we can determine what types of mold spores are in the air and if their levels are too high and the danger they pose.
Step 2. Once a mold problem is determined, we can perform an I.A.Q. inspection and using our moisture detection service and equipment we can find the source of the mold problems.
Step 3. Once the moisture problem is solved, then with our mold remediation service the mold can be killed and removed from the affected surfaces. We will then perform clearance testing to make sure issues are resolved.

Does UV radiation from UV lamps kill mold? Typical UVGI cleaners used in homes have limited effectiveness in killing bacteria and molds. Effective destruction of some viruses and most mold and bacterial spores usually requires much higher UV exposure than is provided in a typical home unit. Furthermore, dead mold spores can still produce allergic reactions, so UVGI cleaners may not be effective in reducing allergy and asthma symptoms. (EPA) (Environmental Protection Agency)
