Whenever your property suffers water damage, there is a change of mold developing, especially if the water damage wasn’t addressed immediately. Mold requires only water, a comfortable temperature, and organic material to grow, and oftentimes water or increased humidity is the only missing piece of the puzzle.
It doesn’t matter whether the source of the water is clean or contaminated, mold growth is always a risk when dealing with water damage. If your property suffers water damage, call a trained professional as soon as possible to not only mitigate the water damage, but also to prevent possible mold growth.
Specifics about Mold
Types of Mold
There are more than 60,000 species of mold, and at any given moment there are mold spores in the air around us. Some common indoor molds include Cladosporium, Penicillium, Alternaria and Aspergillus, but it doesn’t really matter what type of mold you have – if mold is growing inside your commercial property, it needs to be treated and removed.
Mold Exposure and Effects
Mold exposure can be harmful, especially for sensitive populations or those experiencing prolonged exposure to mold. If you suspect mold growth in your property – either you recently had a water damage, you have visible mold growth, or you can smell mold growth – call a mold removal specialist that can locate and remove the mold safely.
ALERT Mold Solution
Identifying the mold types and quantity of mold spores is done by certified inspectors and then analyzed in the lab. A variety of inspection options are available.
Mold Remediation & Restoration
The contaminated area is first contained to prevent the spread of mold spores to “clean zones” and the mold is removed according to IICRC and AIQ standards. Then air filtration devices are used to eliminate airborne spores and ALERT reconstructs if needed.
Re-Inspection of Mold Removal
Following the restoration process, ALERT verifies a job well done through third party re-inspection
