Worcester MA Mold Remediation

Worcester MA Mold Remediation

Everyone wants and strives for a clean, safe home and office. But what happens when a silent and possibly invisible intruder threatens that? That intruder can be mold, naturally occurring fungi that can seep their way into cracks and crevices, then multiple and spread in moist environments. Thousands of different mold species exist and wreak havoc on human health, particularly if a person has mold allergies or asthma. A professional air quality company like MicroZyme Technologies is your best resource for Worcester mold remediation.

Do I Have Mold?

There are a few warning signs of mold that you should always be on alert for. First, you may notice the odor among all other signs. The musty smell will be stronger in a more confined space like a small bathroom. Bathrooms are also a good place to look for mold, especially in the shower. The tiny brown or black spots can initially appear like typical soap scum on tiles and in corners. A quick clean should determine if it’s soap scum or mold. Since mold likes to hunker down where it’s nice and moist, cellars, attics, kitchens and window sills are other popular places for mold to start. The mold spores can then travel anywhere in your home, land and grow in other damp areas.

While not everyone experiences health symptoms with mold exposure, the allergy-like reactions can certainly be an indication of mold. Sinus congestion, itchy or watery eyes, coughing and even difficulty taking deep breaths can be an indication of mold. People with asthma are more likely to experience upper respiratory issues from mold exposure.

What’s the Difference Between Removal and Remediation?

Once you determine you do have mold in your home or office, you want to get rid of it as soon as possible, and keep it from coming back. Since mold is a naturally occurring biological organism that is virtually everywhere, you can’t really remove it. You have a mold problem when mold levels are above safe, normal levels. So mold remediation refers to the process of getting the high mold levels back down to normal.

At MicroZyme Technologies, our mold remediation protocol is straightforward and efficient. After air quality testing throughout the building, we separate the contaminated areas from the non-contaminated areas to prevent cross-contamination while we remediate. We’ll pack and seal up any contaminated building materials that cannot be cleaned and salvaged, then clean the air with an air scrubber or negative air machine. We treat contaminated areas with our own EC-34 technology, an organic enzyme that cleans mold while also preventing it from returning. Then we vacuum with a HEPA vacuum and re-test the air quality to make sure it’s back to safe levels.
