Mold is a serious problem when it appears in a home or building, even if it only covers a small area. Any amount of mold growth can lead to serious property damage and exposure to mold causes a range of health issues from allergic reactions to more serious infections. Mold growth typically starts when there is excess water in the home or building and it affects common building materials like drywall and wood. If the mold is not contained and removed, it will spread to new areas and cause permanent damage to the affected surfaces.
At RestorationMaster, we provide complete mold testing and remediation services to remove all levels of mold growth from homes and commercial buildings in Doral, FL. We use the highly accurate InstaScope testing system to find all mold growth and we use advanced remediation techniques to remove it.
Damage from Mold
Mold is very damaging to building materials and objects in homes and buildings because it uses these materials as a food source. Wood, drywall, and insulation contain cellulose which feeds mold colonies, and as the mold devours more of the affected surface, the damage will continue to get worse. It is possible for mold to cause structural and irreversible damage. Mold spores are already a natural presence in the air so mold growth can occur any time the spores find a combination of moisture and materials that contain cellulose.
The other major concern with mold growth is the potential for negative health effects. Exposure to mold spores in the air leads to a number of allergic reactions including itchy eyes and throat, coughing, skin irritation, headaches, nasal congestion, and other similar allergies. People who are exposed to mold for an extended period are at risk for more serious health effects such as respiratory infections and asthma.
Mold Testing and Removal
The mold growth that you see in your home or building might not be the only mold growth. Mold can form behind walls and ceilings and cause significant damage without being discovered. At RestorationMaster, we use the InstaScope testing system to test the entire home or building and uncover all traces of mold growth. InstaScope is the most accurate mold testing equipment available. Once we have determined the full scope of the mold problem, we will create a mold remediation plan.
The InstaScope testing process consists of the following steps:
- Testing outside the home or building to establish a baseline measurement
- Testing of each room in the building to measure airborne mold levels
- Recalibration and testing in areas with high airborne mold levels
- Report of the results within 24 hours
- Removal of the mold growth and restoration of the damaged areas
Once the mold remediation is complete, we will retest your property with InstaScope to ensure that the mold has been removed.
