Black Mold Facts:
Black mold is thought to be the most toxic mold. The fact is that there are 50 – 60 strains that have been determined by experts to be hazardous to human’s health. A mold infestation, including black mold exposure, can actually cause many health problems, including respiratory problems from mild to failure in young children, elderly, and ones who have suppressed immune systems. This is why we provide mold removal, including black mold removal, services.
As a living organism, all strains of mold needs food to survive. Mold in a residential or commercial structure uses the structure itself as a food source. Especially items like drywall, framing, floorboards, etc. Over time then, your home or office will lose structural integrity, and the black mold removal will ultimately be more timely and costly procedure to complete.
Some companies might recommend bleach or deodorizing to kill the mold and remove the musty smell. However, this is only a temporary fix because this only addresses the mold you see, not the mold roots that have grown into the structure. These roots, if left behind, will grow again. The mold needs to be completely obliterated and killed at the root level to completely remove all health risks to you and your family, or your employees. As your Phoenix Black Mold Removal Experts, Steamy Concepts, follows procedures required by the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) to guarantee a complete mold removal.
Black Mold Removal Procedure
Our first step would be to complete a free Mold Inspection to determine if mold removal would be needed. After the best Black Mold Removal Inspection Phoenix has ever seen is completed, then we ensure the area is contained. Using plastic sheeting and air scrubbers, we create a negative pressure containment area. This allows all biological agents, including mold spores, to be removed. This is particularly important during the next step, which is to remove all materials that are contaminated and that can’t be salvaged. Next we can focus on sanding, cleaning, disinfecting and sealing any remaining framework, flooring, brick, or other unremovable materials that have been contaminated. Then we create a cleanroom by HEPA-Vacing the area and applying an anti-microbial solution to all the surface within the affected area. Lastly we have a third-party indoor environmental professional to inspect the affected area, perform lab tests, and we’ll present you with a copy of the lab report showing that there is no mold detected.
Your assets need protection. In addition to our mold remediation services, we also provide content evaluation as well as packing, moving, and storing contents of the affected area while our services are being rendered.
