Helping remove Ecological contaminates from your home or business
You are here because adverse reactions to possible mold infestation where you live or work is exacting a heavy toll. Mold Colonies appear as ugly fuzzy patches of black, brown, yellow, pink, green, stinky growth on walls, basements, bathrooms… wherever moisture gathers. Mold could also be hidden in heating/cooling ducts, inside wall cavities, wet floors or carpets- all due to an unknown plumbing leak, roof leak, or ground water infiltration. Adverse health effects might include headache, fatigue, inflammation of eyes, throat, or skin and respiratory infections. Mold destroys the material it feeds on, such as dead cell wall particles- primarily what building materials are made of. The dreaded black toxic mold, everyone warns about, produces visions that technicians in hazmat suits will storm the property with sledge hammers to tear the drywall down. Try and let go of your fear- black toxic mold is more common in unoccupied homes where previous flooding occurred, and has stayed soaking wet for a week or more. Black toxic mold colonies are also found hidden inside wall cavities fed by a consistent plumbing or roof leak, but for the most part people living in these homes will realize something is amiss before a black toxic mold colony takes over- though a less dangerous mold colony might be growing. Mold growth, no matter the species, found in homes, businesses, hospitals, and schools should be eliminated for the sake of humans or pets’ health, structural integrity of the dwelling, and quality of life. Mold Remediation doesn’t have to be accomplished with a costly demolition. Technical advances in the last several years have helped developed a special blend of mold killing solutions for the most effective method of mold remediation.

The truth about those mold testing kits that you can buy on-line or in some home stores.
Mold is everywhere existing from the start of the world as one of the fundamental bio decomposers in nature. All homes have small amounts of mold spores floating through the atmosphere and all they require is moisture to grow. Thus, when a “for home use” mold petri dish test shows positive for molds spores it is not telling you anything useful as you already know mold spores are present everywhere. A more useful test would not only test the troubled location but also the immediate non-infected area, either indoors or outdoors, to compare. Both tests can be compared by sending the samples to the company that sold the test for optional further testing. Should the test results show different species of mold in each area, it would confirm a mold problem. Visual inspection by a professional mold inspector trained in building sciences and mold inspections is more likely to find the source of the problem then someone not educated or trained in mold remediation using mold petri dish test kits.
