Bio Clean of Utah, based in Centerville, Utah, has revealed that they have recently finished a mold removal job for a Holladay Utah home. The Holladay Utah mold removal project for the company came about when a homeowner hired a handyman to get rid of some mold they had discovered in the home. The homeowner then thought of calling Bio Clean of Utah to conduct a mold inspection and they found several locations where mold was still present. They got rid of the mold but found that there was still an odor in the home. Further inspection revealed several leaks in the foundation of the home and that there was a severe case of mold in the home’s crawl space. They removed the mold, had the leaks fixed and the moldy soil was removed and replaced. The total cost of repairs amounted to $4,000.
Daryl Olsen, president of Bio Clean of Utah, says, “If you have mold or believe you have mold, an inspection is a beginning point. For a nominal fee we can come on site and perform an inspection, taking into consideration the history of the property, current dampness, the moisture source, affected materials, and suspected affected areas. We have a variety of moisture detection meters and devices, and experience in looking for and detecting mold. Call us for a mold inspection if you have concerns about your property.”
Molds produce allergens and irritants that cause some people to suffer from symptoms of hay fever, such as runny nose, sneezing, irritated eyes, skin rashes, and throat and lung diseases. Many molds, such as black mold, produce toxic substances known as mycotoxins. These can disrupt cellular processes and cell structures, and can result into serious health issues. Studies have shown that mycotoxins were present indoors with victims suffering from various kinds of diseases like pulmonary hemosiderosis or pulmonary hemorrhage (mostly in infants), headaches, nose bleeds, other flu-like symptoms, hair loss, immune system suppression, psychological depression, chronic fatigue, dermatitis, sore throat, and diarrhea. Other symptoms that have been linked to molds include blurred vision, burning eyes, chest pains, respiratory illness, shortness of breath, chest tightness, nasal congestion, cognitive disorder, and aggravated asthma.
Aside from mold inspection, Bio Clean of Utah can conduct mold testing. This can be used to measure and document the quantity of mold in the air and the varieties that are present. The information can be helpful in determining the scope of the mold removal job that will have to be done. This can also be performed after mold removal to ensure that all molds have been eliminated.
For their mold cleanup process, Bio Clean of Utah takes a number of steps. The first step is containment. This means they need to isolate the area to avoid the possibility of the mold spreading to other parts of the home. To do this, they make use of negative pressure machines in combination with temporary plastic walls. The second step is the removal of the contaminated materials and their proper disposal. This step is carefully performed because there should be no shortcuts to the physical elimination of mold colonies and mold spores.
The next step is the neutralization of the mold using fungicides and cleaning of the contaminated areas. They may suggest the application of an anti-microbial coating on the surfaces to prevent mold recolonization on the remediated areas. They advise homeowners and other property owners who notice the presence of molds to contact them right away so that the mold can be removed quickly. They longer people wait, the greater the mold damage and the greater the risk of family members and friends getting sick due to the mold.
