One of the primary issues affecting property owners after a flood and also one of the most underestimated issues if leaks and floods are not dried properly, the moisture in the air can lead to mould infestation.
If mould spores are present in abnormally high quantities, they can present a health hazard to humans, potentially causing allergic reactions, producing mycotoxins or causing fungal infection (mycosis).
The active ingredient in the product we treat affected surfaces with is a Bioflavonoid Complex and is a plant extract.It is highly efficient at killing bacteria, mould and mould spores. As opposed to chlorine which is toxic and corrosive and does a poor job on eliminating mould spores. Bioflavonoids are found in all plants and are in very high concentrations in the coating around the plant seeds. The product we use is non-toxic, non‐corrosive is extremely effective and does not bleach. It kills mould and mould spores instead of simply bleaching them. The dead carcasses of the mould can be easily removed by wiping the surface with a damp cloth. As opposed to the old fashioned way of bleaching them to falsely believe that the spores have been neutralized and removed, when they have not, they have just been turned white.
After our work is complete we provide Sanitation and Moisture Certification.
When moisture intrudes, whether a result of natural disaster, water leak, construction defect or prolonged exposure in a humid environment mould can occur, causing serious surface and sometimes structural damage as well as some health concerns.
