Mold (Mould) Remediation – Dubai, UAE
Mold or mould is found everywhere inside and outside, and can grow on almost any substance when moisture is present. Molds reproduce by spores, which can be carried by air currents or people.
When these mold spores land on a moist organic surface, that is suitable for life, they begin to grow. For significant mold growth to occur there must be a source of moisture (which could be high humidity), a source of food, and a surface capable of sustaining growth.
When mold spores are present in large quantities, they are a health hazard to humans, potentially causing allergic reactions and respiratory problems. These adverse respiratory health effects are associated with occupancy in buildings with moisture and mold damage.
Allergies and sinus infections, skin rashes and irritation, asthma attacks and worst is even death.
Mold can grow on wood, paper, carpet mats, foods, as a result of moisture and improper ventilation. Unless problems are fixed, molds will continue to grow. The only way to deal with mold is to eliminate the reason for having it in the first place.
Swab Testing – A sterile swab is rolled back and forth to the mold area, and then the swab is sealed and submitted to the laboratory where the sample will be cultured and the type of mold will be identified.
Tape Slide Testing – A piece of tape is placed on the mold are to be tested is then lifted on to a glass slide. Same as swab testing, it is then sealed and sent to laboratory for analysis.
We will take every client through a process of Mold Inspection to determine the extent of mold growth and to diagnose moisture entry; erection of engineering controls to ensure that non contaminated areas are isolated; mold remediation of the contaminated area and post project reporting all as per NADCA ACR 2013 standards.
Mold remediation is the removal of mold from home or office to make it safe and livable. The process is costly because the materials contaminated by molds need to be replaced. The cost of mold remediation will depend on the areas which are affected by mold and the material used.
Common building materials, such as gypsum, plywood, drywall, furring strips, carpets, and carpet padding are food for molds. In carpet, invisible dust and cellulose are the food sources.
