We Do Not Test For Mold – We Only Remediate

We Do Not Test For Mold – We Only Remediate

Given that we are a Cleaning and Remediation Company, we have determined that being certified to be an Industrial Hygienist(IH) is veering too far from our profession.  Mold remediation and mold testing require different sets of training, certifications, and professional equipment.  For remediation purposes, the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) offers a course called, Applied Microbial Remediation Technician (AMRT).  In this course technicians learn how to properly remediate mold, but not test for it.  For testing purposes, you must have a 4 year bachelor’s degree in the particular field as well as specific IH courses. Click here for more about becoming an Industrial Hygienist.

Wait... TOXIC? WHAT?

Wait... TOXIC? WHAT?

You may have seen sensational news reports that warn about the dangers of “black mold” or “toxic mold”. These reports can be alarming and confusing so it’s beneficial to get the facts to better understand mold.

Stachybotrys chartarum is the type of mold often called black mold, and it does produce allergens and irritants. However, many types of mold can produce allergens and irritants. Treat any mold with caution – stay out of affected areas and don’t touch or disturb the mold.

Learn more about mold and what to do until help arrives by visiting our page on Mold.

Understanding Mold

Understanding Mold

The Toxic Intruder 

  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
  • Mold spores are microscopic, float along in the air, and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise the mold may return.
  • Mold often produces a strong, musty odor, and that odor can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.

Carpet Delamination

Carpet Delamination

When water damage situations are left unaddressed, affected porous materials will rapidly start to deteriorate. This picture shows what will happen when soaked carpet is left unaddressed.

Call SERVPRO of Metro Pittsburgh East the next time you experience a water damage and we'll help save as much of your property as possible!

Advanced Drying Methods

Advanced Drying Methods

Here at SERVPRO our goal is to always attempt to restore first, and if necessary, replace building materials once decided salvageable. In certain situations however, we use our state-of-the-art drying equipment like the Injectidry System to target hard to dry areas such as wall cavities behind drywall. Instead of cutting costly amounts of affected building material, we insert small hoses into the wall and 'inject' air into the wall cavity. In some cases, this option may prove to be the cost-effective alternative to demolition.
