Prolonged exposure to certain molds can aggravate allergies and respiratory conditions like asthma and hay fever. Don’t wait until the problem worsens – address it immediately.
At Environmental Management Specialists (EMS), our expert staff is trained and state-certified to safely and professionally handle your mold issue.
Our process begins with resolving the moisture issue, extracting water, and removing damaged materials such as drywall and rusted metals. Often moisture is the primary culprit behind mold growth, often found in damp environments like bathrooms and basements.
To ensure clean and purified air, we utilize air scrubbers and commercial dehumidifiers. Once the removal and cleaning are complete, a final air clearance test is conducted to validate the effectiveness of our remediation.
At this point, you can contact general contractors to handle any necessary repairs and remodeling.

Mold and mildew commonly thrive on exterior wall surfaces, particularly in the corners of heated locations. Corner rooms, being more exposed to cold conditions, create an ideal environment for growth due to higher relative humidity (RH). If mold and mildew are present in a corner room, it suggests that the RH near the room surfaces exceeds 70%.
Determining the cause of high RH involves measuring temperature and RH simultaneously.
In example 1, where RH is low (30%) and temperature is 70°F in the middle of the room, the problem lies with “too cold” surfaces. Control strategies focus on raising the room temperature and eliminating cold surfaces.
In example 2, with higher RH (50%) and the same temperature, the issue stems from “too moist” air, indicating elevated water vapor pressure. Control solutions involve reducing indoor air moisture levels to mitigate the problem.
Discover effective strategies for controlling moisture and preventing mold growth by contacting EMS. Our experienced team can assess your situation and provide expert guidance for a healthier indoor environment.
Remember, mold spores can easily become airborne, posing health risks if handled incorrectly. For smaller black mold issues, take precautions by wearing a face mask rated for black mold spore protection and covering your skin. Mist the affected areas with water before cleaning to minimize the release of airborne spores. Use soap and water for cleaning, and ensure damaged areas are safely removed and replaced.
If you require further assistance or expert guidance, our EMS team is here to help. We understand that resolving moisture problems is crucial to prevent ongoing mold growth.

If you’ve noticed funky odors, persistent health issues, or signs of water damage in your home, it’s possible that mold could be the culprit. While not always dangerous, untreated mold can lead to structural damage and adverse health effects.
To address a suspected mold problem effectively, it’s important to take immediate action. Here are some common signs that may indicate the presence of mold:

The use of biocides or chemicals to eliminate mold is not recommended as a routine practice during cleanup. While there may be situations where their use is warranted, such as when immune-compromised individuals are present, it’s generally not necessary or desirable to sterilize an area completely. A background level of mold spores will typically remain, but these spores will not grow if the underlying moisture problem has been resolved.
If you do decide to use disinfectants or biocides, it’s important to ensure proper ventilation and exhaust the air outdoors. Never mix chlorine bleach with other cleaning solutions or ammonia-containing detergents, as this can result in the production of toxic fumes.

In most cases, sampling for mold is unnecessary if visible mold growth is present. Federal mold standards have not established specific limits for mold or mold spores, so sampling cannot be used to assess compliance with these standards.
However, surface sampling can be helpful to determine if an area has been effectively cleaned or remediated.
It’s important to note that mold sampling should only be conducted by professionals with the appropriate training in sampling protocols, methods, and result interpretation.
The collected samples will undergo analysis using recommended analytical methods from reputable organizations such as the American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA) or the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH). The resulting report will provide you with detailed information about the presence of mold on your property.
Taking proactive measures to discover and address mold issues will safeguard the health of yourself, your family, or your employees.
You can trust the expertise of Environmental Management Specialists to help you effectively manage mold concerns and maintain a healthy environment.
The cost of mold removal can vary greatly depending on the specifics of your situation, ranging from a few hundred to tens of thousands of dollars. However, if you can address the issue through improved housekeeping practices, we can assist you in creating a cost-effective plan.
