In nature, mold and mildew are found virtually everywhere on this planet. In your home, they’re mostly found in damp, dark places, and can be found in water-damaged basements, storage areas, wood, insulation, and even carpets, as well as malfunctioning air conditioning units.
Mold is a fungus, and it gradually destroys the very material on which it grows and feeds, In addition, certain species of mold (such as black mold) produce harmful spores and/or secretions, some of which can actually be deadly.
The presence of mold in the home is a serious safety and health concern. Prolonged, daily exposure can be particularly harmful.
Significant mold growth usually requires professional mold remediation and removal of affected building materials. A conservation strategy is to discard any building materials saturated by the water intrusion and/or having visible mold growth.
The goal of mold remediation is to remove or clean contaminated materials in a manner which prevents the emission of both fungal spores and dust that has been contaminated with fungi from escaping the project area and entering an occupied or non-abatement area. Our technicians have a vast amount of experience in proper containment and air scrubbing measures.
CRG follows “by-the-book” procedures for mold remediation, and we back our work by calling for post-remediation clearance testing.
Once the mold has been identified and the extent of contamination is determined and explained to you, our experts utilize state-of-the art technology including portable air scrubbers, digital measurement devices, and HEPA vacuums to ensure complete mold remediation.
