We spend the majority of our time inside so it is important that the air quality indoors is as healthy as it can be. Condensation within a structure is a major concern because it increases the likelihood of mold being present. Common varieties of household mold are Alternaria, Aspergillus, Cladosporium, Penicillium, and Stachybotrys chartarum (also known as “black mold”) which is thankfully less common than the other types of mold but is much more dangerous. Stachybotrys grows on surfaces that have high cellulose content, such as dust, lint, paper, wood, fiberboard, and gypsum board.

Our experienced technicians use advanced equipment (which includes infrared cameras and humidity moisture meters) to detect mold and moisture in carpet, wallpaper, insulation, drywall, sheetrock, wood, and other materials mold can live in. In one-hour, our free mold inspection can provide you with a complete analysis of what was found, where it was found, what treatment(s) are needed, and what can be done going forward so that mold is a thing of the past.

The inspection includes taking samples and sending them off to a third-party laboratory. Once the results are back, we will walk you through the results and inform you and about the types of mold that are present, how they are affecting you and your home or office, and how much mold is present. Lastly, our certified mold remediators will offer options in regards to mold removal, repair and/or rebuild the affected structure.

If black mold is present, a containment system is installed and mold and bacteria killing chemicals are used to eliminate its presence in your home or office. A musty odor is another indication of mold. Mold spores contain bacteria, allergens, and other airborne pathogens that while they can’t be seen, they can surely be smelled. Antibacterial sprays and cleaners are band-aids and do not offer a permanent solution. A proper Mold Inspection and Mold Remediation Services Albuquerque NM will use an environmentally friendly, multi-purpose product such as CIO2, an oxidizing agent that when in gas form, seeps into mold’s cell walls, killing it and the bacteria that produces it. This means that not only will ClO2 kill the bacteria that produces a musty odor, but other odors associated with cooking, fungus, fire, tobacco, and pet odors as well.

Clo2 is approved by the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) and the WHO (World Health Organization) and is used by water treatment plants throughout the United States and Europe. CIO2 isn’t available over the counter and training is required in order to properly use it. Our trained professionals use it as a treatment and a deterrent because it can penetrate walls and floors and kills the spores that help spread bacteria, odor and algae. Most importantly, this method is safe for humans, pets, and plants.

Following treatment, the air is cleaned of any remaining mold spores and particles and anything porous that has been affected by mold is removed to assure that mold can not continue to thrive. Nonporous materials are treated with antimicrobial cleaners and sealants and any affected areas are properly dried and moisture management strategies are shared to prevent further occurrences. Structures that can be rebuilt with mold-free materials are repaired and follow-up testing is conducted to make sure that the applied remedies are effective.

Those in dry areas mistakenly think that mold is more of a problem in humid areas, but the reality is mold growth has very little to do with climate and everything to do with moisture. If you are living or working in an energy efficient atmosphere that improved efficiency means that moisture has nowhere to go and is a breeding ground for mold and bacteria.
