FAQ About Mold & Mold Removal

What is Mold?

Mold is a fungus that grows both indoors and outdoors. There are numerous species of mold, including several that spread through the air and water. Mold can survive extreme environments.

How Does Mold Grow?

For mold to grow, a food source, oxygen, and environment between 40-100 degrees F is required. Due to this, mold often grows in damp, humid spots. Leaks, overflows, and floods in your property can lead to future mold growth if left untreated. 

Is Mold Dangerous?

Not only is mold harmful to your health, it also has detrimental affects on your property. Health concerns include asthma, rashes, headaches, allergic reactions, and difficulty breathing. On the other hand, mold can destroy your property’s crawl space, foundation, roof, HVAC system, drywall, and other components.

What Causes Mold to Spread?

Organic food sources breed mold. A common source is cellulose, which is often found in wood and drywall. These locations often fall prey to mold. 

How Can I Spot Mold?

Mold announces its presence in a variety of ways. If you notice a musty odor and/or discolored ceilings, floors, and walls, this is generally indicative of a water leak that has sprouted mold. 

Can I Remove Mold Myself?

Due to the health concerns associated with mold, DIY mold remediation is highly discouraged. As a professional mold removal company, E and K restore is uniquely equpped to handle the job. We remove mold without spreading spores.

The skilled team at E&K Restore in McDonough GA tests air quality for high mold levels and can identify various mold species. Mold is a significant concern due to the health risks it poses.

Our Mold Removal & Remediation Process

Air Quality Test

Depending on the type of mold, the mold spores can be hazardous to your health. These hazards include allergies, asthma attacks, infections, nose bleeds or even in some cases cancer. The only way to know exactly what mold you have in your house or business is to hire an industrial hygienist to conduct a test to check your property for the presence of mold.

Mold Containment

Mold spreads very quickly under the right circumstances. Following a water related disaster, mold can take over entire buildings within a matter of days. To prevent this we will begin containing the affected area immediately. Utilizing proper protection equipment (PPE) and advanced containment techniques, our team of mold removal specialists will safely and quickly contain the mold.

Mold Removal

Since we’ve already identified the mold-damaged materials, after containing the mold, we can begin removing those damaged materials. At E & K Restore, once our team of remediation specialists have carefully removed the damaged materials, we will go through your home or business, spraying and cleaning every surface with an antimicrobial wash, to kill any remaining spores.

Clearance Test

Now that the remediation process has been completed, we need to make sure that your air quality is safe before finishing up the repairs and getting your life back to normal. So once again we will need the industrial hygienist to conduct another air quality test. When that test comes back clean, we can move onto the final step of the mold removal process.

Rebuild & Remodel

Getting a clean test on that clearance test means that our team at E & K Restore can begin making the repairs needed to finish the job. As a licensed general contractor, we have the ability to complete any repair, from flooring to drywall to cabinets to entire comprehensive projects.

Thermo-Hygrometer

Moisture Meter

Toxic Black Mold

When a homeowner discovers a greenish-black mold, it’s crucial to address it immediately. This type of mold, known as black mold, is highly toxic and can be dangerous.

Removing black mold is essential due to its potential to cause various health issues, including severe headaches, asthma, urinary tract infections, and more. Health officials report that black mold is linked to over 100 lung conditions.

If homeowners choose to remove black mold themselves, there are important precautions to take.

Avoid scraping the mold, as this can release spores into the air. Before beginning removal, wear protective clothing such as goggles, gloves, and a filter dust mask. Isolate the affected area with plastic and tape. Clean the area thoroughly with soap and water, and seal any contaminated materials in a plastic bag. Disinfect the area where the mold was located, as well as the surrounding areas.

Several products can be used to disinfect after black mold removal, such as vinegar, tea tree oil, and grapefruit seed extract.

Preventing black mold is the best approach. Managing humidity levels in the home is key. Homeowners can use paint with mildewcide to prevent mold and mildew. Additionally, fixing leaks and ensuring proper ventilation can help minimize the risk of black mold growth.
