Mould exists everywhere in the environment, but when mould growth becomes extreme it can cause severe health problems.
Mould can become a problem as a result of flooding, a roof leak, sewer backups or leaking plumbing. Because of the dangers that are associated with mould contamination, remediation requires specialized equipment and knowledge. Containment of the existing mould, controlling the air movement, proper disposal and thorough cleaning of the affected areas are all essential steps to properly abate a mould problem.
Every situation is unique. Whether it’s in the initial discovery or the aftermath of a disaster, proper detection is key to help prevent serious health risks. Your local Promus Restoration team will use state-of-the-art technology to determine the scope of mould growth, and conduct a thorough source investigation to determine the cause of the issue and the repairs needed to prevent further growth and possible health issues.
Sometimes, a specific catastrophic event may spawn a secondary problem that can create a health risk. If a structure that has had a fire which was extinguished with water but was not dried properly, mould could develop. It’s clear that clean-up, removal and proper disposal of contaminated materials must be done right the first time.
