Many Mold Removal Companies prefer chemical based products such as "Anabec Chemicals" to kill mold. But let me explain why American Mold Solutions do NOT add these caustic chemicals to your living environment. In the case of Anabec and many other chemical based products have their own information guides state that it is not for use on clothing. . .long time exposure to off gassing has not been studied, and the effects on humans is unknown. Also, the person(s) using these chemicals are supposed to be fully trained on the proper use and safety to the occupants, so the home owner has to "trust" that the person using these products are experts. But there is more than just the live growing mold, the mold spores are microscopic and spore normally that's how they reproduce, but they spore like crazy when touched or disturbed, plus the microscopic dead spores in the air, as well as all this occurring in an enclosed area would give anyone pause to think, "is this the best for my family and my home"?
Most chemical based products and bleach are just surface cleaners; mold embeds itself into the pores of the wood or other materials in order to "break down"; molds job is to breakdown dead plant matter back to dirt. So it has to be removed from the pores as well.
Sanding of wood materials is often recommended but you can't keep sanding without compromising the framing/wood member at some point. Also there is no way to know if you have gotten below the contamination. It is microscopic and can't be seen by the human eye, just because you can't see it anymore doesn't mean you have removed it all. And when sanding you are blowing out lots of live microbial growth and wood fragments which makes the clean up inside very hard and these fragments become airborne and spread throughout the home cross contaminating all areas.
American Mold Solutions utilize an all natural approach to kill and remove the microbial growth, while at the same time cleaning and sanitizing the air to remove any spores from migrating all over your home. And most importantly, tracking down the exact cause of the mold in the first place. Our goal is to keep you and your family safe, remove the source, remove the damage, and clean the air and surfaces for the best results.
So if for your own safety if someone recommends a particular chemical based product, get the name and go to the manufacturers instructions and educate yourself, this will also open up many questions you can confirm with the potential remediation company.
Why American Mold Solutions is the Only One to Use. . .
Hello, my name is Dr. Paul Bass and I want to thank Sharon Lampley and the entire American Mold Solution's remediation crew for saving my home.
After hiring two other companies and several years of attempting to eliminate the mold, there was still toxic mold in most every room in my home. The local company I hired just used ozone, air sanitizers and filter equipment. They vented my crawlspace but did not remove or clean anything. The second company was from out of state. They systematically guessed at what was causing the problems, sprayed chemicals on everything in the home about 3 times, removed some drywall, and pulled out all of the carpet. They replaced the subflooring and installed hardwood throughout the home. Everything they recommended I did to try to help eliminate our problems. Meanwhile I was watching my beautiful wife's health continue to deteriorate. Finally I called American Mold Solutions. Sharon Lampley came in and inspected our home, analyzed all of the problems, created a scope of work, and they methodically got the job done paying close attention to the smallest of details.
I have been totally pleased with the honest determined commitment to uncovering every last contaminant in my home and eliminating it in an environmentally safe manner. Please don't wait, I highly recommend American Mold Solutions for their diligence, green, non carcinogenic approach to removing all aspects of mold and contaminants from my home. Job very well done, they are the best.
