A full home inspection will be performed and a written estimate will be given. This service can become involved based on the full extent of damage and additional factors. We are capable of correcting small isolated issues to full floor to ceiling growth situations.
Our belief is that any mold growth should be removed from any living and working environment. There has been lots of research, but unfortunately much of it is inconclusive and may vary from person to person. Just because I may have a reaction to mold may not mean that my neighbor will. Given this information we believe that removal and treatment of any situation involving mold growth is the only remedy to insure a healthy living environment for all. After a full inspection of the property we can determine what conditions allowed the mold to grow. This is the first step to correct the issue. Once corrected we are able to remove and kill existing growth and any discoloration caused by it. This process can vary depending on location and a plan will be developed to solve your particular situation. We then apply a treatment to prohibit further growth in the future.This can be a very involved process depending if the growth is in wall cavities or other hidden areas. We will give you a complete overview of what steps need to be taken to remedy this potentially dangerous situation along with a detailed estimate.

Below is educational information regarding health concerns and effects of mold from mold-help.org.
“Mold has certainly made its way into people’s homes as well as the headlines recently. Many people still don’t fully understand the health hazards of fungal exposure. The term toxic mold is somewhat misleading as it exudes an idea that certain molds are toxic, when actually certain types of molds produce secondary metabolites that produce toxins. The correct term is mycotoxins. Airborne mycotoxins can definitely destroy one’s health. Sometimes, people are unaware that they are breathing mold spores and mycotoxins until they are very sick. Certain people have a minor allergic reactions to the some molds, but once you leave the affected area they most likely recover with few serious side effects. However, if they have been exposed to the dangerous molds such as Stachybotrys or Chaetomium, they could suffer from a myriad of serious symptoms and illnesses such as chronic bronchitis, learning disabilities, mental deficiencies, heart problems, cancer, multiple sclerosis, chronic fatigue, lupus, fibromyalgiarheumatoid arthritis, multiple chemical sensitivity, bleeding lungs, and much more.
Molds can be found wherever there is moisture, oxygen, and something to feed on. In the fall, they grow on rotting logs and fallen leaves, especially in moist, shady areas. In gardens, they can be found in compost piles and on certain grasses and weeds. Molds grow in our homes in moist warm areas like damp basements, closets, and bathrooms, even after the moisture has dried up. Also, molds can grow in places where fresh food is stored, refrigerator drip trays, house plants, humidifiers, garbage pails, mattresses, upholstered furniture, or foam rubber pillows. The worst place that molds can grow, however, is inside wall cavities and flooring of our homes, wherever there may be cellulose materials they can feed on, such as wood, ceiling tiles, or plasterboard, even if they are not visible, and they have sustained water damage at one time or another. This is very common if there has been a plumbing leak or an inadequate roof. Actually, any type of water damage can cause a mold problem. Mold and cellulose eating insects are often partners in crime in water damaged portions of your home. Due to similar conditions required for each to thrive, the presence of one may indicate the other.”
