Mold can be a tricky problem because it is always a threat to appear in any home or building if it finds the right conditions and it has the potential to cause significant structural damage and health problems. There is a level of mold spores present in the air that will form into mold growth once it finds a food source and a source of moisture, making it most likely to happen as a result of water damage. Once mold starts growing, it will spread to cause more extensive damage and increase the risk of related health effects. Mold contaminations that cover an area beyond 10 square feet must be handled by a certified professional according to the guidelines of the EPA and IICRC. ServiceMaster NCR provides mold remediation services in Chevy Chase, MD to completely remove mold from homes and buildings. Our InstaScope testing equipment and innovative Trifect mold remediation method allow us to accurately test for and remove all mold growth for much less than the cost of traditional methods.
If given enough time, mold can cause devastating damage to your property and jeopardize your health. The spores tend to use cellulose as its food source, which is found in wood and drywall, and it will gradually devour the affected surfaces until they become irreversibly damaged. Exposure to mold spores is also known to cause a range of health issues such as eye and skin irritation, stuffy nose, and other allergic reactions as well as more serious respiratory issues. Our technicians will quickly contain the mold growth and we stay safe using personal protective equipment (PPE) which includes waterproof gloves and masks.
Trifect Mold Remediation and InstaScope Testing
Effective mold remediation requires accurate testing to ensure that all mold growth, including hidden mold, is uncovered and removed. We thoroughly test the home or building using the InstaScope testing system which accurately measures the concentration of mold spores in the air. The InstaScope testing is completed in these steps:
- – We start by measuring the mold level in the air outside the home or building to use as a baseline measurement.
- – The mold levels in each room are tested and compared to the baseline measurement.
- – We retest rooms with elevated mold levels to find the mold growth.
After the complete extent of the mold growth has been discovered, we begin the remediation process with the Trifect mold removal method. This new method of mold removal is designed to be less invasive and more cost effective than traditional methods as it can completely remove mold without having to remove any drywall. The Trifect mold removal method includes the following steps:
- – Surface Application: We apply a proprietary topical solution to surfaces with visible mold growth.
- – MAG 50: Submicron aerosol decontamination is used to remove hidden mold.
- – Testing: After the mold removal us complete, we will retest your home with InstaScope to make sure all the mold has been removed.
Mold contaminations may start out small but they can quickly spread and result in extensive property damage while increasing your risk for mold related health issues.
