Mold

What is Mold

Mold is a multi-cellular fungus, similar to mushrooms and yeast. Mold can be different colors, and look fuzzy, slimy, or powdery. It often has a musty odor when present in large amounts.

Mold requires three things to grow:

  • water/moisture,

  • organic food source (paper, fabric, sheetrock, etc.), and

  • proper temperature.

The presence of mold means there is too much moisture. Moisture problems can be caused by: 

  • plumbing leaks

  • leaking roofs or windows

  • high humidity

  • flooding

  • condensation due to poor ventilation or insulation

Touching or inhaling mold spores can cause allergy-type symptoms such as:

  • runny nose and congestion.

  • eye irritation.

  • sneezing.

  • coughing.

  • sore throat.

  • skin rash.

  • headache.

  • lung irritation.

 

Mold Assessment

Committed to Quality

An assessment, or a mold remediation plan, is a document prepared by a mold professional. It identifies mold and serves as a guide for the cleanup project. It says what must be done, how it is to be done, and how you will be able to tell if all the mold has been removed. The specific requirements are listed in Section 945 of the Labor Law.


Before any work starts, you should have a clear understanding of the scope of work and the services the contractor will provide. You should understand and agree with the mold assessor’s remediation plan for acceptable work scope and job clearance. This may include sampling, recommended use of biocides or other chemicals, replacement of materials, and criteria to demonstrate clearance after the cleanup.

Exceeding Expectations

What does the Mold Remediation Contractor do? The remediation contractor does the actual cleanup work. They must give you a mold remediation work plan. The work plan must fulfill all the requirements of the mold remediation plan developed through the assessment.



Disaster Recovery

When disaster strikes, the path to recovery begins with disinfecting contaminated materials and eliminating offensive odors. As a mold remediation solution, our HaloFogger attacks pathogens left behind by mold, mildew, and decaying plant and animal material, eliminating the odors they produce.


Contaminant Elimination

The threat to human well-being is not gone once a disaster ends. Instead, pathogens fester, creating environments that are hazardous to human health. As an EPA registered fungicide, HaloMist serves as a highly effective post-disaster remediation agent, killing the pathogens and harmful spores that are left behind.
