Liptak Mold Cleanup – Mold Remediation
Mold is natural occurring organism, and is present almost everywhere. In an indoor environment hundreds of different kinds of mold are able to grow wherever there is moisture and an organic substrate (food source). Mold can grow on building and other materials including: the paper on gypsum wallboard (drywall), ceiling tiles, wood products, paint, wallpaper, carpeting, furnishings, books, papers, clothes and other fabrics. Mold can also grow on moist, dirty surfaces such as concrete, fiberglass insulation, and ceramic tiles.
Water accumulation in indoor environments can lead to mold growth. Removing mold growth and correcting the underlying cause of water accumulation can help reduce mold exposure. The presence of mold growth, or water damage should be addressed quickly. Water damaged materials should be removed and the structure of the home should dried and treated for mold. The underlying moisture problem must be corrected to prevent recurring mold growth.
We have the right training and the right tools to identify and remediate mold.
A visual inspection will be done in to identify a possible mold problem, and determine remedial strategies. Crawlspaces, attics and behind wall board will be checked. Carpet, carpet backing and padding, wallpaper, moldings, and baseboards, and will also be inspected. We utilize infared cameras which detect moisture, moisture meters, and borescope to view behind walls. The extent of mold growth will be assessed and affected building materials identified. At this time a scope of work will be written up and remediation can begin.
