Moisture is present naturally all around us, but when the temperature drops and the surrounding air becomes colder, condensation can form. Condensation is common in bathrooms and kitchens, for example, when bathing, showering, cooking, and drying clothes. Mildew is something we all see grow from our daily routines at home, but if you suspect you have a mold problem, please contact us right away.

Don’t kill mold – Dead mold is more dangerous to one’s health than live mold. When a mold is killed, the relatively large spore fragments into tiny pieces, often less than 5 microns in size, which are inhaled deep into the lung or alveoli, where blood oxygen transfer occurs. This implies that any allergenic or toxic effect of the mold spore could be carried directly into the bloodstream. These small particles get through all human defenses and enter the lower respiratory system. So, don’t remove or kill mold.
Toxicity – The color of a mold does not indicate its toxicity. White, blue, green, and red molds are all equally dangerous or allergenic. Toxic molds can also produce toxins, but only when they are under attack, which can be caused by drying out, the application of bleach or biocides, or the presence of bacteria.
Brushing off mold – Brushing away mold will almost certainly release hundreds of thousands of spores into the air you breathe.
Swab results are invariably overgrown – The most dominant spore will cultivate the plate, often obscuring the more difficult to grow toxic molds. Culture-based sampling is a complex process that may necessitate the use of several different agars to replicate the required growth conditions.

Airborne release – Mold can be removed by almost anyone who is properly protected, but the airborne release may cause contamination to spread widely and pose a serious inhalation risk.
Professional decontamination to a standard determined to be medically safe is required. This usually entails gutting the property, disposing of porous contents, and meticulously cleaning fine particles. Professional decontamination to a standard determined to be medically safe is required. Mold is a recognized health hazard and must be removed to avoid health impact. Mold removal should follow three-point plan:
The first issue is to identify the why mold has grown and, in all circumstances, it will be because a moisture source is available in Gloucester. The following protocols should be followed.
The first step is to remove the water source. Identifying leaks by staining is usually a simple process. It can sometimes be more difficult than simply looking for a leak and may include a professional and competent investigation involving a variety of procedures that may include any or all of the following:
Meters for dampness
Once the moisture source has been identified, the moisture must be dried or controlled to prevent future mold growth. Everything in the Gloucester home must be completely dry before refinishing and replacing walls and flooring to prevent future mold growth and materials from losing structural integrity. Consider us if you need to hire a mold removal specialist. Our knowledgeable mold removal specialist will conduct a thorough mold inspection to identify the specific types and levels of mold that may be affecting air quality. To determine the source and scope of mold, they will use a combination of visual inspection techniques as well as moisture meters and thermal imaging cameras. To better understand the problem, our professional will conduct a mold test.

On the day of treatment, our mold removal specialist will filter the air, clean mold spores, and remove other airborne impurities in the target area with a high efficiency particulate air filter. They will isolate the affected area to prevent cross-contamination and the spread of spores to other parts of the house. Unlike traditional vacuum cleaners, all contaminated surfaces will be vacuumed with a high efficiency particulate air filter vacuum to trap mold spores while releasing clean air.
Then, using microfiber cleaning cloths, a professional will spray and wipe down the previously contaminated surface. This breaks down the bonds between the surface and the contaminants while also removing any remaining spores. Finally, the area will be treated with an antimicrobial that will be applied evenly and effectively using an electrostatic sprayer.
Because of the risk of spores being released and contaminating previously unaffected parts of the property or contents, the need for critical barriers is recognized. Unfortunately, visible mold removal alone may not remove airborne submicron particulates, chemical allergens, or toxins, and this is where mold busters may be able to help. We will scrub the air to remove spores and bacteria, both alive and dead, as both can pose serious health risks. Our procedure takes a few hours and results in crystal clear air in Gloucester.
