Mold & Hanta Virus Abatement
Mold is a problem endemic in the Southwest US.
New Mexico, Arizona, Texas and other areas in the southwest US are so arid that when it rains many parched roofs leak. This can cause mold in carpets, drywall and even structural areas. Molds are ubiquitous in nature, and mold spores are a common component of household and workplace dust. However, when spores are present in large quantities, they are a health hazard to humans, potentially causing neurological problems, allergic reactions and respiratory problems and in some cases death. Some molds also produce mycotoxins that can pose serious health risks to humans and animals. Mold assessment and remediation can be tricky and an attention to detail is required; a partial job can still render premises unfit for occupation.
We employ innovative and cost efficient remediation techniques.
We provide a comprehensive range of fungal remediation services in a cost effective manner, with considerations for critical time paths and time constraints realized. Our specialists are trained to assess both the presence of microbial contamination and the source of any underlying moisture intrusion, in detailing remediation procedures and restoration recommendations. They are adept at isolating, removing and/or cleaning materials that have microbial contamination, both for contents (furniture, rugs, etc.) and structural remediation (drywalls, frame, etc.), and perform all procedures in accordance with standard industry practices.
Our Hantavirus remediation services mitigate a potentially fatal virus.
Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome (HPS) is caused by a potentially fatal virus hosted by rodents. The virus can be shed in the rodent’s urine, dropping and saliva. The potential for human exposure can occur when simple actions such as sweeping or cleaning can result in air-borne particles being inhaled. Other avenues of human exposure can be ingesting food contaminated with the virus or touching an infected surface and then touching the nose or mouth. The Southwest has areas of high rodent activity and requires expert, safe and reliable and professional assessment and remediation. We provide a comprehensive range of abatement services to commercial, residential and governmental facilities to meet their abatement and regulatory obligations in a cost effective manner.
