CGCI Management specializes in mold removal and mold remediation across the US. Our mold removal process focuses on identifying the cause of the problem and providing recommendations to find a permanent solution for our customers.
One of the biggest post-flood dangers to the health of a property and its inhabitants is mold growth. A flood in a domestic or commercial property grants molds ideal conditions in which to thrive, with the risk to human health being proportional to the exposure time experienced and the species and the density of airborne spores. Most properties have mold in some form or other – often hidden behind surface finishes, in voids, and within stud partitions. Whether your mold infestation comes as the result of flooding or just general damp and moisture in your home.
Our team offers a professional service and years of experience to ensure you get the best possible results.
An independent analytics laboratory performs all post job testing, we outsource this service to avoid any conflict of interest and to provide independent results. This provides assurance for all parties involved that the job has been completed and the mold has been removed.
Air quality statistics are collected and collated and then referenced against a cross-section of published standards and guidelines. Results are analyzed and reviewed by a molecular scientist to provide you with an affordable high-quality report, instantly.
Pre-job testing is not recommended if you have visible mold growth but can also be arranged if required. Many of our competitors will charge for expensive testing which will only confirm the presence of mold.
Mold affected contents need to be identified to the technician during the initial mold inspection. Most mold-affected items can be restored to there original condition. As mold often follows a water source some items may be water damaged and may not be able to be restored and this will be outlined in the inspection report.
Common contents we restore include:
Generally we can remediate any of your contents, make contact with us if you want to discuss particular items
As with any restoration if some detailed items are more expensive to restore then replace then this will be outlined in the inspection report and those items should be removed before the mould removal process can take place.
Molds are present virtually everywhere, indoors and outdoors and can grow in and on materials such as food, furniture, fabrics, carpets, walls, paper, timber and plumbing.
Mold growth occurs when there is a water source or moisture present in an environment with limited or no sunlight. Moisture on drywall, wood, carpet and other material in an indoor environment provide an ideal place for mold growth to occur.
Common water source issues can be a lack of bathroom ventilation, roof leaks, rising damp, plumbing leaks and condensation. CGCI Management can offer onsite inspection to help you identify the issue.
When there is a water leak in a property there is likely visual signs of mold growth and water damage at the actual source of the water leak. Sometimes there is there is no water leak where the mold is growing, often mold will grow along external walls and sometimes even patterns on the ceiling where temperature differences occur on the surface. This is because elevated humidity levels will condensate on different thermal areas of a room.
Mold produces air born mold spores which can increase particles in an indoor environment. Whenever particles are increased in an indoor environment such as smoke, pollen and dust, health affects can occur and you should seek advice from a medical professional.
“The term “toxic mold" is not accurate. While certain molds are toxigenic, meaning they can produce toxins (specifically mycotoxins), the molds themselves are not toxic, or poisonous. Hazards presented by molds that may produce mycotoxins should be considered the same as other common molds which can grow in your house. There is always a little mold everywhere – in the air and on many surfaces. There are very few reports that toxigenic molds found inside homes can cause unique or rare health conditions such as pulmonary haemorrhage or memory loss. These case reports are rare, and a causal link between the presence of the toxigenic mold and these conditions has not been proven.” (reference https://www.cdc.gov/mold/stachy.htm)
