Mold, in a home or business, can have wide ranging effects to both the structure itself, and the people who frequent the building. Due to the health concerns of mold, and the detailed steps necessary to eradicate the mold problem PHD Services stands ready to perform remediation all throughout Beaufort and Jasper County as well as the Savannah area. We are members of both RSA - Restoration Sciences Academy in Cleaning and Restoration and IICRC-Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration.
What are the Health Concerns?
Some molds can produce toxins, which can cause health problems in humans and pets. Particularly vulnerable to illnesses are infants/children, elderly, people with immune-compromised systems, people with respiratory problems, and pregnant women. Adverse health effects reported have included reoccurring nosebleeds, headaches, rashes, extreme fatigue, dizziness, memory loss, asthma, and intestinal distress. Due to the health concerns linked with mold, it is important to remediate all areas that may be affected.
In some cases, the cleaning of a structure will suffice when it comes to mold remediation. Mold does not feed off of non-organic material. In other cases, it is possible that mold growth is enabled by excess dirt and dust within the structure. Our experienced professionals are skilled in determining the cause of mold and removing said causes to effectively eradicate the problem.
Often, there are porous materials with excessive mold growth that need to be discarded. Having the correct type of containment stops spores from spreading throughout a structure, especially during the demolition phase.
Containment of discarded materials is a critical step in the mold remediation process. Our experienced professionals are able to determine the proper procedures to take when removing items so as not to contaminate other areas in the structure. We determine the correct amount and degree of containment for each job to keep your structure, and those that frequent the building, safe.
PHD Services can clean and salvage items such as desks, equipment, and even books affected by mold.
