Mold growth in a home, a commercial building, or a multi-family complex is something no one wants. Mold growth can lead to serious harm to occupants’ health and the given building. Thankfully, North Arundel Contracting can help. Their expert team can safely locate and contain the mold source and restore your building and belongings to good order. If you need mold remediation in Anne Arundel County, North Arundel Contracting makes it easy.
What Is Mold?
To understand what a proper mold remediation service is, one must understand the role of mold. Mold consists of microscopic spores that quicken the decomposition process in nature. These spores thrive on moisture, growing colonies quickly in moist, warm conditions in low light. Mold is everywhere, tracked in by pets, your clothes, or HVAC systems. Therefore, one should not believe that a mold remediation team can eradicate 100% of mold from your home. Mold only becomes a problem when humidity becomes too high.
Signs of Mold
One can usually detect mold by sight or scent. Mold appears in various colors, from red to green to black. The scent will be your strongest indicator, as it often produces a strong, musty smell. Another sign is if one or more occupants is suffering from vertigo, headaches, and nausea. If this is the case, get to a safe environment and deal with the issue as soon as possible.
The Mold Remediation Process
North Arundel Contracting offers mold remediation in Anne Arundel County as well as in Baltimore, Howard, and Queen Anne’s counties. Their mold remediation process is as follows:
First, North Arundel’s team will locate the mold at its source. Because some mold particles may be difficult to see in plain sight, they will use special equipment to detect all instances of mold growth present.
Next, they will create a safe containment of the infected area. They may need to stop the HVAC from running and eliminate excessive moisture. Depending on the size of the contaminated area, the team will need to either use limited containment or full containment methods to block off and create negative air pressure in the area.
If the mold damage is severe, North Arundel will work with an Environmental Hygienist to diagnose and treat the problem. This typically consists of air filtration and the removal of mold-damaged materials.
Air Quality Testing
Preferably 48 hours after treatment, the team will return to conduct air quality testing. This testing is essential to making sure the mold does not return and gives building owners peace of mind.
The last step is restoration. North Arundel Contracting doesn’t just offer mold remediation in Anne Arundel County, but general contracting services as well. They specialize in emergency services, commercial cleaning, construction, and restoration.
