Last week we finished this mold remediation project in a garage in Tewksbury, MA.
Mold can be found all over the house. Weather it is indoor or outdoor mold, it puts you, your family, and your home at risk for bigger problems. Many people don’t treat outdoor mold as seriously, but it is just as important to have it properly removed. In this garage, the wetness and mold could have spread and caused property damage and health issues. The garage is a common place to find mold as well as basements, attics, and around the foundation. Be aware of your risks and check for signs of mold. If you this you have a mold problem, you should contact a professional. At AirPro Environmental we will do an on site evaluation of your problem for free. We will then go through the process of mold testings, and deciding which combination of remediation techniques is appropriate for your situation.
Mold is recognized as a common problem plaguing many households in New England, the US, and beyond. Mold spores are a cause of a variety of health conditions and if inhaled or ingested can cause serious allergic reactions and bacterial infections. Professional action needs to be taken quickly when you find mold to remove it thoroughly and prevent it from coming back. Molds that can be found in your house are common, but can become extremely dangerous.
“Researchers led by Montana State University have found a surprising condition that occurs in the lungs after an invasion of a common mold that can cause deadly infections in humans” – Science Daily
If the mold gets to the lungs, it can cause infection. Invasive aspergillosis is the most deadly of infections caused by mold which can kill 30 – 90% of its victims. Molds can be found in common places such as hay, soils, and compost piles. People with compromised immune systems are more at risk than others including those who have had organ transplants, HIV, chemotherapy or other medical treatments which lower a person’s ability to fight off infections.
At AirPro Environmental, we understand that the best way to remove mold and protect against future growth is to remove the source. We do a full inspection of the site of your mold to determine where the wetness is coming from, and which mold treatment is most appropriate for your case.
