Indoor mold contamination has been identified as a potentially significant health hazard for building occupants and a substantial liability for property owners.
What is mold?
Mold can grow in as little as 48 hours. Mold can thrive in moist environments created from floods, burst pipes, or high humidity to name a few examples.
Boardwalk Contractors, Inc. recommends inviting an Industrial Hygienist on any mold loss to determine if there is actual mold present and set a protocol for the work to be performed. Boardwalk Contractors, Inc. will contain the affected area with IICRC standard J J20 containment and provide an air filtration device to reduce the amount of spores in the living area until the evaluation for an Industrial Hygienist can be performed.
Mold growth – In addition to visible mold growth and the detection of moisture in porous materials, an obvious indicator of microbial amplification is an odor that may be described as musty, moldy, or mildew.
Molds are groups of microscopic organisms that are part of the kingdom Fungi. They generally reproduce by means of spores. Growth and dissemination of certain types of mold and their spores in indoor environments as a result of water intrusion on certain building materials can degrade materials and presents certain unique health risks to humans.
