Mold Remediation & Inspection
Protecting yours and your family’s health is job # 1
An intrusion of water into your home or place of business can result from either, a sudden event or from long-standing leaks. Under certain conditions, organic materials found inside a building, such as cabinet materials, wood and laminate flooring, baseboards, structural and other wood members, and the paper layers on drywall, provide excellent food sources (also known as substrates), for molds to flourish.
Water damage when left unattended for 72 hours or more, may lead to a mold infestation. Some types of molds can cause a runny nose, eye irritation, coughing, congestion, aggravation of asthma, headache, or fatigue. Concerns are more likely to arise when "at risk" individuals are exposed to mold growth. "At risk" individuals include very young children, the elderly. and those with suppressed immune systems or other health-compromising conditions such as cancer, HIV/AIDS, chronic inflammatory lung diseases, severe asthma, and allergies.
Sparkle handles mold infestation damages every day.
Prompt action is required to prevent excess mold growth. If your property has sustained recent water damage, it is vital to have the water and moisture to be professionally removed from the structure. We will alert you of any signs of mold infestation. In the event one is found, we will provide you with a protocol for proper contamination removal and sanitizing of the affected area.
The key elements that contribute to a mold infestation include:
Type of water (clean, grey or black)
Amount of time since conditions for mold infestation started
Types of materials affected
Temperature, sunlight, and airflow conditions around the affected areas
Extensive mold growth often requires additional assistance.
In the event we identify extensive mold infestation, additional technical assistance may be required to develop an adequate permanent solution to the problem. Some situations require the services of an Indoor Air Quality/Industrial Hygienist professional (CIH). Please ask us about whether your situations warrant engaging the services of a CIH.
