Orange County Mold Removal & Remediation

Mold is part of the fungi family and has been around way before humans. Mold spores are microscopic which means they are invisible to the eye. Most of us have been unknowingly ingesting mold into our bodies since the day we were born by means of inhalation. It generally will affect older individuals, younger infants or the immune compromised first. The question many may ask is what type of mold do we have here and what is the concentration of it in the air. There are several standards and guidelines that should be followed when removing mold from a home or business structure. We seal off and create a negatively pressurized containment in which we work inside while mold removal tasks are conducted. Once properly contained and removed we sterilize the salvageable building materials and properly dispose of unsalvageable items. When we feel the mold has been removed accordingly a third party inspector can conduct air sample clearance testing for home owners and occupants to have peace of mind.
