Keeping mold out of your home or building is a difficult task because moisture will cause mold to form and once it appears, it is a constant threat to spread to new areas. A moisture source is needed for mold growth to appear and it causes extensive property damage because it uses the affected materials as a food source. The potential health effects of mold are also a major concern because exposure to the spores can cause allergic reactions as well as more serious issues like respiratory infections. RestorationMaster provides mold removal services to eliminate mold growth from homes and businesses in The Islands and Mt. Pleasant, SC as well as repair or replace the damaged surfaces. We can safely contain and remove the mold growth and our InstaScope testing system helps us uncover all hidden mold.
The main food source for mold indoors is cellulose which is an organic substance found in drywall, wood, and other common building materials. Mold colonies slowly devour the surfaces they grow on and if given enough time, this can lead to serious structural issues and permanent damage. Mold growth can spread very easily by dispersing its spores and it is exposure to the spores that causes allergies like coughing, nasal congestion, itchy eyes and throat, and skin irritation. If someone is exposed to the mold spores for too long, they may experience more serious issues like respiratory infections or asthma.
If there is significant mold growth in your home or business, it must be contained and removed immediately to prevent serious structural damage or health effects. Our technicians will contain the mold growth to protect your property and remove it using the best cleaning products and equipment available. Hidden mold is often an issue as well and we use the highly accurate InstaScope testing system to uncover hidden mold and make sure it is removed. The InstaScope testing system includes the following steps:
- Baseline Measurement: We measure the level of mold spores in the air outside the home or building to use as a baseline measurement.
- Comparative Testing: The airborne mold levels are tested in every room of the home or building and compared to the baseline measurement to find areas that may have hidden mold.
- Confirmation: When the mold removal process is finished, we do one more round of testing to make sure the mold has been effectively removed.
You should never hesitate to act if there is mold growth in your home or business because this will only give it more time to cause serious damage and health issues.
