 Chemically speaking, chlorine bleach is a water solution of sodium hypochlorite. Common household laundry bleach,  used to whiten and disinfect laundry, is typically either 5.25 percent (“regular strength”). OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) was one of the first federal agencies to STOP recommending the use of liquid bleach for mold remediation. The EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) has since edited their “A brief guide to mold and moisture and your home” to exclude their once suggested use of bleach as a means to kill mold. So what actually is mold? Let’s go over the basics to get a better understanding of how it works and how it should be properly treated.     NO ONE KNOWS HOW MANY SPECIES OF FUNGI EXIST BUT ESTIMATES RANGE FROM TENS OF THOUSANDS TO THREE HUNDR...

 Got Mold? Musty odor? Water leaks? Getting sick inside the living space?A Mold inspection/screening is a non-invasive examination of the building to identify and report on conditions that have led to moisture intrusion, water damaged and conditions conducive to microbial growth (MOLD) or actual existence of microbial growth. If such conditions are present, sampling is recommended. Sampling may also be recommended in the absence of visible conducive conditions as a precautionary measure; such as a carpet sample, as such conditions may be concealed. A mold inspection is valid only for the date of such inspection and cannot predict future microbial growth. A mold inspection is a picture in time. The data results of the organic microbial (Mold) testing should be used to aid the course of a...

Most lawsuits allege that mold problems could have been avoided, so commercial real estate owners need to show due diligence by investigating any suspected mold problem. We can document your due diligence in investigating mold issues and determine whether they exist at all. We also can provide expert witness testimony.Toxic molds, commonly referred to as black mold, are more dangerous than ordinary molds because their spores contain poisonous mycotoxins. In concentrated amounts, mycotoxins can cause skin blistering, nosebleeds, asthma symptoms, or chest pains, among other things. In extreme situations, they can even cause shock and death.Unfortunately, there is no cure for a mold allergy, but there are ways to reduce the symptoms. While a change in diet and simple over the counter drugs...
