Are you suffering from allergies, asthma, respiratory issues or other toxin illnesses that are treated by a medical professional? We understand that unless your home is healthy ecologically, you will not get fully well.
When we work with you and your medical professional, we take a three-step approach to ensure your home will be free of airborne mold contaminants that could adversely affect your health.
Home Visit and Consultation
The first thing we do is visit you in your home so that we can discuss any water events that may have taken place and give your home a visual inspection. We thoroughly examine all areas, including attics, crawlspaces, basements, and any interior areas where water could be.
There are many issues that can cause mold to grow. Most of these are due to improper venting in an attic and/or leaks in basements and crawlspaces. Mold can grow at 40% relative humidity or higher, and it is not hard to reach 40% RH in our service area.
Further, basements and crawlspaces are prone to leaks, broken pipes, and high humidity. Over the years, we have found many sources of mold growth in homes – basement hoarding, homes built with molded wood, lack of a crawlspace vapor barrier, inadequate attic venting, and poor foundation grading are all examples of how water can enter a home and cause mold growth.
Much of our work is done either in basements, crawlspaces, and attics. Being a licensed builder, with over 25 years of experience, we review the home’s history with patients and thoroughly discuss any known water events, and can, therefore, ascertain the original cause of excess moisture in the home.
Your safety and health are very important to us. MoldPro provides total peace of mind that your remediation has been done correctly, and we can back up that claim with independent lab air testing. With independent mold clearance testing, you can be assured that your home has been returned to a normal, healthy, ecological condition.
We can do four types of mold testing – mold spore air testing, lift-tape sampling, ERMI and HERTSMI testing.
Mold spore air testing is usually used to test the air on a floor of the home (basement, first floor, second floor, etc.) or in a given area of the home. It helps to define where the mold concentrations are highest in the home and identify where to focus the remediation.
Lift-tape samples are used to take a small portion from a solid surface, like wood, to determine exactly what type of mold is on that surface.
ERMI and HERTSMI testing are favored by some medical professionals. These tests help to provide a mold historical record for the home.
Chemical-Free Mold Remediation
After the air tests have been performed and analyzed, we will then work with you on a mold remediation strategy that will return your home to an ecologically healthy condition, without using any chemicals.
Most companies who offer mold remediation services typically use chemical-based solutions. Not only are these chemicals potentially harmful to you, but they are sometimes ineffective in efficiently removing mold at its root. It goes without saying that if the mold isn’t removed completely, with enough humidity, your mold could come back again, and you could still be exposed to harmful mold-emitted gases.
MoldPro understands that for those suffering from mold toxin illnesses, being exposed to chemicals can cause harmful health effects. We set the standard for chemical-free mold remediation, and it is something we take very seriously.
The experts at MoldPro offer the safest, healthiest, and most advanced method of chemical-free mold remediation for your home.
Dry Ice Blasting
The main benefit of dry ice blasting is that there are no chemicals used; there are no long-term chemical effects. It is clean and approved for use, even in the food industry. With dry ice blasting, the mold is actually removed from the home, whereas other processes leave the mold intact and free to regrow. Please note that the dry ice pellet changes from a solid to a gas almost instantaneously upon impact. It is the safest, most thorough and advanced method of mold remediation today.
Small Particle Cleaning
If you’re experiencing health challenges due to mold in your home or place of business, MoldPro offers a treatment with an ethanol/water solution that will help to remove mold spores. All hard surfaces, including walls, floors and ceilings, are wiped with this solution. In addition, cabinets and hard-surface furniture can be wiped clean. Wiping and cleaning helps to rid the home of historical dust that can hold mold spores in the home. This treatment is commonly referred to as small particle cleaning.
Fogging helps to remove mold contaminants and further clean the air of airborne particles. This process takes the Aerosolver Pure solution and atomizes it into the air. This procedure shoots a significant amount of the solution into the air in a short amount of time. It also helps to further clean the air of airborne particles.
Using a HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) vacuum removes 99.97% of all contaminants, down to .03 microns. After the dry ice blasting process is complete, the entire area is vacuumed to pull up mold spores and other contaminants. This further aids in the remediation process.
Treating the air with Ozone is another extensive service that we offer if you are having health challenges due to contaminated air. Ozone is a naturally occurring gas and is the second most powerful sterilant in the world that can be sued to destroy bacteria, viruses, and odors. This treatment replicates what happens in the air during a lightning strike. When contaminants, such as odors, bacteria or viruses, make contact with ozone, they are destroyed completely by the oxidation. This is performed only on the advice of a medical professional.
Insulation Install and Removal
Removing insulation can rid the home of potentially harmful chemicals, animal feces, and other contaminants. Your compromised insulation will be removed, and new, formaldehyde-free insulation will be installed. Whether you have rolled or blown-in insulation, removal is done in a manner to keep contaminants from entering the living area. MoldPro removes most attic insulation with a specialized vacuum.
Air inside the home is filtered through a three-stage HEPA filter. Exhaust air is sometimes vented outside the home to aid in cleaning the indoor air. All air is filtered down to .03 microns and is 99.97% clean on contaminants.
