MOLD is a nasty little bugger. It’s been around since the beginning of time and it will be here long after we are all gone. In nature, mold is a good thing. It has only one purpose…”Decompose Organic Matter”, it’s nature’s way of cleaning up the planet. Mold in your home or your work place, however, is a very different matter… Mold can cause a lot of expensive damage and is the source of many medical illnesses in people and pets. Young children, elderly people or people that have illnesses are at a greater risk of being affected by mold.
Mold is usually the result of water damage or very high levels of moisture in a building. Mold thrives in moist and warm conditions and feeds quickly on things like wood and paper, or any other organic source of food.
Knowing the correct way to handle mold is important to us. The IICRC is the international authority on how to properly deal with mold mitigation. They have developed the best known mitigation practices and cleaning standards for removing mold in a set of standards known as the “S520”, we call it the “MOLD BIBLE”. We at Madison Property Restoration strictly follow the guidelines set down by the IICRC for the protection of our clients and our staff. Every Mold Mitigation project that we do is overseen by a technician that is certified by the IICRC as a Applied Microbial Restoration Technician.
If you think you have mold in your property, don’t try to clean it up by spraying some off-the-shelf cleaner or bleach on it, they don’t work and usually just spread the mold throughout your property. Mold spores are very small (2-20 microns) and can’t be seen by the human eye. Improper mold cleaning tactics can do more harm by spreading the mold throughout your entire property by getting in your HVAC system. Breathing dead mold spores has the same affect on your lungs as live mold. Call us, we know how to contain and remove the mold properly.
