Mold Remediation

Air Quality Matters

During a flood clean-up, the air quality in your home or office may appear to be the least of your problems. However, it should be addressed. Professional mold remediation requires the use of the latest technology in air scrubbing and disinfection. Below – are some comments about moisture intrusion situations that may be symptomatic of a future mold problem.


Remarkably, twenty years ago there were few mold-related lawsuits. Today, however, associated mold claims are filing through the court system with emphasis on construction defect, personal injury and toxic tort. Toxic Mold Litigation has come into the public view as one of the most controversial areas of litigation. The primary basis for Mold claims are the numerous instances of bad faith, public health problems, poor maintenance practices, and the transfer of real property. Faced with a rising number problems – property owners, insurers, lenders, investors, and developers are looking for ways to more fully understand the nature of the problem.

Health Risk

Due to their prolific nature, toxic molds can secrete chemicals called mycotoxins, which are highly mobile and can lodge in the lungs, brain and digestive tract. It is believed by many health care professionals that once lodged in the body they may cause headaches, nosebleeds, respiratory problems and even death.

Check for Previous Water Intrusion

Any structure with water leaks, sewage backflows, water damage or a history of unwanted moisture intrusion is at risk of developing toxic mold. High humidity increases the risk of mold growth. Poor housekeeping practices can increase the risk of mold. According to USEPA, building owners and property managers should ask some questions to determine if toxic mold could be a problem in their buildings.

Questions To Ask:

  • Are there existing moisture problems associated with the building?
  • Have building materials, including new lumber, sheetrock or any other porous building material, including carpets, been wet for more than 48 hours?
  • Are there hidden sources of water, or is the humidity, naturally occurring or man-made high enough to cause condensation?
  • Are building occupants reporting musty or moldy odors?
  • Are building occupants reporting health problems?
  • Are building materials or furnishings visibly damaged by moisture?
  • Has routine maintenance been delayed, or has the maintenance plan been altered?
  • Has the building recently been remodeled, or has the building’s zone use changed?See

Professional Advice

If any of those questions are answered yes – or if you suspect that it may be possible that any recent alteration may have compromised the buildings moisture barriers, property managers or building owners should seek the advice of water damage and mold remediation professionals.
