Microbial Decontamination

Mold and mildew can be problems in any structure.

Carpet, wallpaper, and drywall must often be removed because trapped humidity causes mold and mildew to grow on the back surfaces. Mold and mildew are forms of fungus whose growth and reproduction create the familiar odor we smell in damp rooms.

Fungus growth may be eliminated by removing its water (humidity). Removing excessive moisture from materials is the most practical and effective means of stopping mold and mildew. Air humidity must be controlled below 60% relative humidity (RH) to avoid the growth of mold and mildew.

After discovering the presence of mold in your building, you must call a professional. Firewater Response’s mold remediation service begins with a thorough assessment to see where the source of the moisture is. Only by finding the source of the moisture and stopping it can we truly be sure that the mold problem will be abated. Once the source has been dealt with and there is not potential for new mold growth, we can begin to remove the existing mold. Firewater Response works with microbiologists to determine the type of microbial so the proper steps can be taken to eradicate all traces. ¬†Mold may appear to be gone, but if it is not dealt with properly and totally removed, it can re-occur. We use only the most appropriate antimicrobial and most effective methods for mold removal.
