For mold to start growing in a building, it requires these four components:
Unfortunately, mold spores are present everywhere, both outdoors and indoors.
Source of nutrition (organic materials)
Mold has a source of nutrition present in almost every home and commercial building.
Freezing temperatures cause mold to hibernate but don't kill it. It starts growing again as the environment gets warmer. Simply controlling room temperatures won’t eradicate the problem.
Mold starts growing actively when relative humidity reaches 60%. By keeping humidity in a space at less than 60%, you can prevent mold growth.
If you take one of these parameters away, the mold can't grow. The key condition that leads to mold growth in buildings in Boise, Idaho is moisture. Leaks, poor ventilation, and flooding often cause high humidity and mold formation.
If mold isn't noticed and removed timely, it could lead to further damage to the property while putting your health at risk.
What is Mold Remediation?
Mold remediation is much more than simple physical removal. To kill mold, we spray it with biocide – a special chemical agent. After biocide takes effect, our remediation team vacuums the surface with a vacuum equipped with a HEPA filter. After that, our mold specialists dehumidify, dry, and seal appropriate areas as needed.
