Mold / Air Quality

                             

As a member of the IAQA since 2004 C&B Services are a leader in mold inspection, testing, abatement, and decontamination; black mold inspection, testing, and remediation; and sick building contamination remediation. We provide testing for Stachybotrys mold, as well as mold abatement and decontamination and toxic mold decontamination remediation abatement.

Board certified microbial inspectors perform our mold investigation and assessment of residential and commercial buildings following the American Indoor Air Counsel methods for investigating sick building syndrome contamination to identify sources of mold and airborne mold contamination. We collect air and surface samples,  send them to be analyze at an independent Lab and do a damage and contamination assessment. If contamination is critical, we do an emergency recommendation.

C&B Services  provides a comprehensive report and will give you results in three workdays.

TEN THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT MOLD
 

  1. Potential health effects and symptoms associated with mold exposures include allergic reactions, asthma, and other respiratory complaints.  

  2. There is no practical way to eliminate all mold and mold spores in the indoor environment; the way to control indoor mold growth is to control moisture.

  3. If mold is a problem in your home or school, you must clean up the mold and eliminate sources of moisture.

  4. Fix the source of the water problem or leak to prevent mold growth.

  5. Reduce indoor humidity (to 30-60% ) to decrease mold growth by: venting bathrooms, dryers, and other moisture-generating sources to the outside; using air conditioners and de-humidifiers; increasing ventilation; and using exhaust fans whenever cooking, dishwashing, and cleaning.

  6. Clean and dry any damp or wet building materials and furnishings within 24-48 hours to prevent mold growth.

  7. Clean mold off hard surfaces with water and detergent, and dry completely. Absorbent materials such as ceiling tiles, that are moldy, may need to be replaced.

  8. Prevent condensation: Reduce the potential for condensation on cold surfaces (i.e., windows, piping, exterior walls, roof, or floors) by adding insulation.

  9. In areas where there is a perpetual moisture problem, do not install carpeting (i.e., by drinking fountains, by classroom sinks, or on concrete floors with leaks or frequent condensation).

  10. Molds can be found almost anywhere; they can grow on virtually any substance, providing moisture is present. There are molds that can grow on wood, paper, carpet, and foods.
