Molds produce allergens, irritants, and in some cases, potentially toxic substances. In order for mold to grow indoors there must be mold spores present, a conducive temperature rage, a nutrient source and water. Wet or damp construction cavities, attics and plenums are a major source of mold. GREEN provides full scale mold evaluation and remediation services. GREEN routinely inspects commercial properties for the presence of mold.
Our investigative services include
- source evaluation,
- indoor air quality testing,
- percent moisture measurements of building substrates, and
- surface sampling.
The purpose of mold remediation is to remove the mold to prevent human exposure and damage to building materials and furnishings. GREEN conducts mold remediation in accordance with EPA's Mold Remediation in Schools and Commercial Buildings guidelines and employs various forms of remediation depending upon the type of material affected. These methods often include, wet vacuum, damp wipe, HEPA vacuum and/or removal of building materials.
