Mold Removal and Remediation

Usually we can remove the contamination without the need for you to vacate your home.

Everyone has heard of the danger posed by black mold. In fact, it has become such an item of concern that it has been on the news, home shows, magazines, movies and the cause of many sleepless nights for people fearful of the un-reversible health effects that it may be causing to them and their children. But what is black mold? The truth is that “Black Mold” is a title that has been given to a small group of toxigenic molds that have had a few high profile cases in recent times. The truth is that the color of the mold has little to do with the toxic properties it may or may not have.

Mold can be green, red, white, brown, blue, orange, or any combination of, and all have the potential to be toxic.

Mold is such a hot topic these days that it almost seems to be a recent phenomenon. The truth is mold has been around longer than we have, and it is everywhere. Mold is present almost everywhere on the planet and our homes are no exception. Even when mold is not visibly growing it is still present. Spores, produced by mold colonies, travel through the air until finding a surface to settle upon. If water is present on that surface, the mold will grow.

Some adverse health effects that have been linked to mold range from skin irritation to headaches and respiratory problems. New research is only starting to link the affects mold exposure has on our health. The one thing that is certain, if mold is not dealt with properly and professionally a bad situation can be made worse. With mold we are not only dealing with visible growth but also microscopic spores that become disturbed and aerosolized during removal of the affected material. Universal utilizes cutting edge HEPA filtration technologies, and proven containment and removal methods to remove mold contamination in the safest possible way. In most cases, we can remove the contamination without the need for you to vacate your home.
