Excess moisture of water is the single most important factor for microbial amplification (mold, bacteria and dust mites). This can lead to potential health problems and the destruction of building materials. To assess and monitor the moisture load in your building, we utilize state of the art instrumentation to measure humidity levels in the air, the moisture load in building materials (drywall, concrete, ceilings, wooden framing, carpet) and to identify problems areas.
Scientific research has shown that microbial contamination is a significant source for poor indoor air quality and associated health problems. Mold spores can act as allergens and irritants. Toxic chemical compounds can be produced by some microorganisms. Molds can produce mycotoxins and bacteria endotoxins.
Source identification and evaluating the extent of contamination are the important factors for development of a successful remediation protocol. Our highly experienced and educated microbiology and industrial hygiene team can identify problems areas, quantify the different organisms, and provide you with the right answers to solve your microbial problem.
Disaster Restorations can:
Identify sources of moisture that allow mold to grow
Remedy moisture sources that cause mold growth
Dehumidify and dry structures to limit new mold growth
Remove mold growth and spores, (mold remediation) from structure and contents and furnace duct systems
Remediate for mold contamination where spores are discovered and mold growth is not evident
