mold testing the villages: MOLD or MILDEW? Purchasing a home…smell musty? - 04/02/22 01:41 PM
Mold and mildew both are fungi that develop as a result of excessive, unchecked moisture in confined spaces. They grow in a wide range of temperatures, with some strains especially thriving at higher temperatures. Both of these types of fungi can eventually damage the home or cause health concerns. Mildew is always flat. Mold can often look fuzzy or have an almost raised appearance, but mildew does not. Mildew may smell musty, but mold may be much more pungent. In its early stages, mildew appears almost white. It then often shifts to gray or brown. In its final stages, mildew can … (2 comments)

mold testing the villages: Can I use bleach to kill mold at home? - 02/06/22 08:23 AM
Chemically speaking, chlorine bleach is a water solution of sodium hypochlorite. Common household laundry bleach, used to whiten and disinfect laundry, is typically 5.25 percent (“regular strength”). OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) was one of the first federal agencies to STOP recommending the use of liquid bleach for mold remediation. The EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) has since edited their “A brief guide to mold and moisture and your home” to exclude their once suggested use of bleach to kill mold. So, what is mold? Let’s go over the basics to gets a better understanding of how it works and how it should be properly treated.

mold testing the villages: POST REMEDIATION VERIFICATION (PRV) PROCESS (After mold eradication) - 05/20/21 06:23 AM
 
INDOOR MICROBIAL SPECIALIST offers post remediation verification (PRV) inspections and testing. Often referred to as “clearance testing”, this evaluation is performed by a mold or indoor air quality (IAQ) specialist to help determine if the remediation scope-of-work (remediation protocol) was followed and if the recently cleaned environment has returned to a healthy livable space. The IIRCR (Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification) defines this as Condition 1 status – a normal fungal ecology. The post-remediation verification should never be performed by the remediation contractor and is required to be a separate third-party company. However, many times this evaluation is scheduled through … (0 comments)

mold testing the villages: The Dangers of Mold in your home living space. - 03/10/21 02:38 PM
Molds produce allergens, which are substances that can cause allergic reactions, as well as irritants and, in some cases, potentially toxic substances known as mycotoxins.  Inhaling or touching mold or mold spores may cause allergic reactions in sensitive individuals.  Allergic responses include hay fever-type symptoms, such as sneezing, runny nose, red eyes, and skin rash (dermatitis).  Allergic reactions to mold are common.  They can be immediate or delayed.  Molds can also cause asthma attacks in people with asthma who are allergic to mold.  In addition, mold exposure can irritate the eyes, skin, nose, throat and lungs of both mold-allergic and non-allergic people.  … (4 comments)

mold testing the villages: Mold Infestation at home? Respiratory problems? Allergies? - 07/09/20 07:11 AM
The very presence of mold spores is normal in the environment. However, the presence of mold growth indoors is not normal and may pose health and/or comfort risks to some exposed occupants. Mold growth requires spores (“seeds”), favorable temperatures, a food supply, and moisture. Like plants, mold grows by spreading, and the release of spores. Mold easily spreads outward under favorable conditions. However, if conditions are unfavorable for growth, mold will go dormant and release spores into the air so they can find a suitable environment for survival.
 
Moisture, nutrients, and favorable temperatures can lead to mold growth in water-damaged materials in … (0 comments)

Most lawsuits allege that mold problems could have been avoided, so commercial real estate owners need to show due diligence by investigating any suspected mold problem. We can document your due diligence in investigating mold issues and determine whether they exist at all. We also can provide expert witness testimony.
Toxic molds, commonly referred to as black mold, are more dangerous than ordinary molds because their spores contain poisonous mycotoxins. In concentrated amounts, mycotoxins can cause skin blistering, nosebleeds, asthma symptoms, or chest pains, among other things. In extreme situations, they can even cause shock and death.
