The experts at WorkDog® Property Solutions are happy to provide the New England community with mold removal and remediation services.
Our goal of mold removal is to physically remove the contamination, not to just “treat” it. There is a popular misconception that certain chemicals (i.e. bleach) will kill mold and solve the problem. The reality is that even dead mold spores can be allergenic if left on a surface. It’s not recommended to use bleach or harsh chemicals as they tend to create an even more toxic environment and potentially mask the issue.
Therefore, WorkDog® Property Solutions focuses on safely removing the materials that host the mold. When physical removal is not possible, treating the surfaces in such a way that little or no spores are left behind, such as HEPA vacuuming and encapsulation (sealing) the area are taken.
Additionally we use only EPA-approved anti-microbial products and follow the guidelines set forth in the EPA’s Mold Removal for Schools and Commercial Buildings, as well as our current industry standard known as The IICRC S520 Guideline for Professional Mold Remediation.
Causes of Mold
Excessive moisture and delayed property maintenance is the leading cause of mold and water damage. It is not uncommon to see buildings and homes that are fifty + years old with the same plumbing and electrical systems in place as when the structure was built! In addition to outdated plumbing and electrical issues; faulty roofing, window and ventilation systems play a large role in the potential of mold and water damage issues.
The list goes on and on but the result is the same: expensive repairs. We advise that homeowners inspect their properties annually for defects and issues that can become major problems down the road. Often an inspections with little to no cost can save thousands in the long run.
