Protecting Your Home and Health
If you’re a homeowner, the thought of mold can be terrifying. Not only is mold unsightly, it can also be a danger to your home and those in it. This type of fungus occurs in the presence of moisture. As it forms, it can weaken your walls, ceilings, floors, and more. In addition, it can cause serious health issues.
The Dangers of Mold
There are many types of mold that can form in your home; its spores can be white, green, black, yellow, or a combination of colors. But no matter the type (or color) of mold, it can compromise the integrity of your home and the health of your family. Did you know that mold spores emit an odorless toxic fume called mycotoxin? This chemical has been linked to diseases and other issues such as brain damage, learning disabilities, respiratory issues, migraine headaches, weak immune systems and sometimes even death.
Mold Removal & Remediation
If your home is susceptible to water leaks or flooding, it is a prime candidate for mold formation. The more mold your home has, the more problems it can cause. At TRU Basement Waterproofing, we can effectively remove mold growth or remediate it to restore your home to its natural state. During a mold remediation or removal appointment, we’ll assess your situation, determine the location of your mold growth, and take the necessary steps to clean and sanitize the affected area.
Before we touch any mold, we’ll set up a negative air containment area to protect mold from escaping into other areas of the home. Mold can contain 21 thousand spores per cubic centimeter and can be spread simply by walking by. Smaller amounts of mold can be remediated and maintained using a material that we paint on. We use an EPA-registered anti-microbial material that we apply to the surface contaminated with mold. This traps (or encapsulates) the mold to keep it from compromising the air quality in your home. It also stifles and prevents its spread and helps to prevent returning spores.
