Living in Florida especially in the hot humid months is prefect conditions for mold spores to grow into colonies. High levels of moisture or humidity is one of 2 elements for mold spores to grow.
Mold spores and mold are part of our Eco-system, and they have been around for a very long time. Some people confuse mold for mildew, or they say I have mold & mildew. Mold & mildew are both from the fungi family, but they are different species. A good balance of indoor air mold spores is the same levels as outdoors.
If you smell an odor or see mold growing you have a moisture problem caused possibly by one of these most common sources:
- high humidity
- leaking pipes
- water coming in from the outside
- a wet building
Once mold starts to grow and matures, they release spores, the process continues growing & multiplying wherever there are moisture or nutrients and if left for too long you will have a contamination problem. These spores are everywhere there is air. They land on your carpets, drapes, ac/heating units duct work, etc. It is no secret that mold will damage your residence or business interior structure, and it puts your health at risk. Delaying professional cleanup will only make it more costly and require more time to remove the mold contamination that is damaging your property.
The odor you smell could be caused by microbial contamination and the mycotoxins produced by molds. These mold mycotoxins can cause health problems, if the building occupants suspect a mold problem contact Excelaron for a consultation and building examination.
Starting the Process:
We start the process by gathering information of the building, indoor air quality, occupant’s health issues to mention a few of the items we talk about.
Then we will hire a 3rd party Indoor Environmental company that will take air and surface samples to send to a lab for testing and identification of the mold or mildew. The indoor environmental company after analyzing the lab information will provide a written report to Excelaron and the building owner. There are different procedures & systems that our professional technicians need to follow when completing a mold remediation project. The report will be a guide for selecting the proper methods for the remediation project. When the work is completed, we have the inspector come back to complete a clearance test to verify that the remediated area is no longer contaminated, and the indoor air quality is no longer a health issue.
