Professional Budget-Friendly Mold Testing

You can’t tell what species of mold is growing in your home or business just by looking at it or because it smells a certain way. Mold’s characteristics are determined to some extent by the substance it’s feeding on. Mold that is seen gives one the certainty that it needs to be removed regardless of species. No further tests need to be done, in most cases, because it will not affect any decisions about how the mold is removed. However, sometimes more information is needed to aid in several situations such as:

A real estate sale requires proof of successful mold treatment to your home or business before a closing can occur.

Tenants dealing with mold sickness within their rental homes or apartments and with a Landlord that refuses to act could engage a Professional Mold tester to investigate and provide proof (or not) of a sickening mold infestation which could further encourage a Landlord to act. However, these cases are very complex and we suggest you seek a lawyer’s counsel to understand full ramifications of any action you may take to clean up the mold.

When a family member is seriously ill with symptoms that resemble mold sickness, Doctors may want the Species of mold identified to improve or design a medical treatment plan.

Pre- mold removal versus Post- removal conditions are done to prove successful mold remediation.

We are resolved to stay budget friendly to provide expert help well within the financial reach of families.

Rocky Mount, NC Affordable Mold Removal Services

Mold an ancient fungus, present since primordial times, in our ecosystem devours dead biological matter (plant and animal based) and reduces it to its elementary components.  Mold acquires energy to spread into new territory through Decomposition while leaving the excess nutrients to be released into the soil where it feeds new plant life. Mold is an important action in our environment that acts to cleanup waste and provide plants the energy to grow.   Mold, however, inside a home or business is dangerous to the health of humans and their companion pets. Plus, mold slowly devours building material and personal property within a home to decompose to their most elementary of forms.

Mold can always find its need for warmth (between 70- and 90-degrees Fahrenheit) and food within most homes but it also needs excessive moisture (no water; no life) which then becomes the focus of a mold inspectors search.

Wherever excessive moisture collects, Mold Colonies are likely to be found. Mold looks like fuzzy patches of black, brown, yellow, pink or green growth spreading out on walls, basements, bathrooms… Mold could also be hidden within heating/cooling ducts, inside wall cavities and beneath flooring. In these cases of hidden mold, we use moisture scanning tools to help find it.

Mold spores will never be totally eradicated inside homes or business regardless of species because they will readily float back in through an open door or window, be carried back by you or a pet and quite probably may be hidden in a dormant form within original building materials.  The most successful way to defeat mold in the home or office is remove the moisture leaks, scrub away mold remnants and filter the air of its overwhelming numbers of mold spores.

Black Toxic Mold: Blast from the Past

Undoubtedly, toxic molds have been occasionally growing in our homes since we moved indoors. However, it wasn’t until the 1990s that people begin to understand its effect upon our health.  One of the most toxic species of mold- Stachybotrys chartarum, in the early 1990s, caused 30 Ohio babies to become ill with deadly lung disease. A Terrified public looked to investigators to understand why. The resulting medical investigation showed that each infant presided in a previously flooded home where black toxic mold was growing. In the preceding years, more instances of life-altering illness attributed to Black Toxic Mold has become notorious enough to alarmed many homeowners, today, at just the thought that it might be growing in their homes.

What Black Toxic Mold Looks Like

Stachybotrys chartarum mold is a deep darkish green color, heavy in form and looks gelatinous with moisture. This mold is heavy with moisture which means, unless disturbed, it is less likely to release dangerous spores into the atmosphere. This species of mold is not found in company with other types of mold because its toxicity kills them. Dry Black Toxic mold will appear like a thick layer of a black powder that is easily disturbed to swirl about the atmosphere.

Black Toxic Mold Worries

The thought that toxic black mold (Stachybotrys chartarum) has infested your home is just about devastating for several reasons.

Worry that a serious or even deadly illness could strike loved ones.

The probable high cost to remove or remediate it.

The knowledge that any potential buyer of the house will have to be informed about the deadly mold suggesting that any future sale will be difficult and at a far lower cost than expectations. This is a lot to cope with before you contact someone for help. Hero Mold Company is discrete we do not inform anyone that you may have mold in your home.

Yes, there is a lot to fear about Stachybotrys chartarum should it be found in your home. However, be assured that although this mold is common in our outdoor environment thriving on dead animal and plant debris it is a rare occurrence in an occupied house. This slimy dense black toxic mold is more fragile than other species. It doesn’t like air currents, requires a lot of water and a substantial amount of time to develop 8 to 12 days instead of the 24 to 48 hours it takes for other common mold species. Mostly it’s found in previously flooded homes that continue to contain a very high rate of humidity that keeps the mold alive- no water no life.

Where Does Toxic Black Mold Hide or Grow?

Black Mold Underneath Wallpaper

Usually, Stachybotrys chartarum will thrive somewhere hidden- it doesn’t do well in direct sunlight or in places disturbed by ruffling breezes. Most often Stachybotrys chartarum is found in places with a very active leak that has been there awhile. Unnoticed plumbing Leaks under sinks, behind walls, beneath floors, and within ceilings, are the normal places it’s found.

Black Toxic Mold and Your Health Risks

We know Stachybotrys chartarum mold produces a higher concentration of mycotoxins than other mold species and is even a strong enough poison to stop competing mold species. Regrettably, it is sadly responsible for the debilitation illness of many people and worse yet several deaths throughout the last decades.

Black Mold Beneath Flooring

Mycotoxin, a poison spread through the air and by touch, is produced by fungi that can cause severe illness leading sometimes to a miserable death in exposed animals and humans. Awful possible health effects of toxic mold sickness include headache, fatigue, respiratory infections, damage to internal organs, nausea, hemorrhage in lungs, hallucinations, and inflammation of eyes, throat, or skin.

Safe Professional Black Mold Removal Steps

The species of Mold will not change the steps of mold removal, cleanup or remediation. We follow Industry accepted procedures they are:

Water is life to Mold. End the moisture source feeding the mold colony and end the colony.

Infected areas will be placed in containment with the use of walls made of plastic sheeting sealed with tape.  All Doors, windows, and vents will be sealed while leaving a controlled entrance in one doorway for the mold removal technicians. This treatment cage, when properly built, keeps stirred up mold spores from drifting to new areas.

Negative air pressure (industrial Vacuum with output sent outdoors) is set up in the containment chamber to stop the flow of air currents within the room from moving to other areas in the house.

Technicians use industrial HEPA Vacuums to suck up the mold off its surface to remove and entrap within the HEPA filter the mold spores stirred up.

Building material that acts as a wick (soaks up moisture) that can’t be salvaged from serious decomposition will be sealed in bags and taken to the Dump. Permeable building material deemed salvageable will be cleaned and repaired.  Non- permeable building material such as steel, glass, tile and stone building material will be scoured with a mold killing solution.

Containment areas that are wet from cleaning solutions will be dried with industrial heaters, scoured of all dust and debris, left ready for repairs, remodeling and then stress-free residency.

Be aware that during Mold Removal technicians will use protective masks and clothing to keep from inhaling mold spores, they are safety precautions and not meant to heighten concerns.

Insurance Covered Costs of Mold Removal

The following is not intended as legal advice, just as a potential helpful step to take.  Homeowners insurance will generally cover mold damage if it was caused by a “covered peril”.  For example, sudden unexpected flows of water from plumbing (burst pipe), HVAC systems, indoor fire-retardant sprinkler system and appliances. Before you contact the agent, make sure you’ve stopped the leak to prevent further property damage. Insurance Agents will not look kindly on clients who’ve made no effort at repairs. To be sure, contact your Homeowners Insurance Agent.

However, if the damage is due to poor maintenance such as:

The 30-year-old roofs broken shingles should have been fixed or the entire roof replaced.

Black mold has been growing for some time in your shower until one day you notice its really bloomed across a wall and now have concerns over mold sickness.

You knew about a leaky pipe under the house yet failed to fix it.

Construction mistakes usually cause gradual damage and are not considered “sudden and accidental”.

Flood water damage, unless you purchased separate flood insurance.

First, a conversation; we’ll talk about why you called. This is the time for clients to provide any suspicions of where the mold is located.

The Buildings History, meaning previous storm damage, recent repairs, groundwater flooding, roof leaks, and plumbing leaks will be discussed.

The property’s landscape will be checked for drainage problems which are commonly caused by incorrect landscaping, roofing and/or building maintenance issues.

An extensive visual inspection of the interior will be conducted and if mold is found it will be shown to the client. In the situation of suspected hidden mold, they will use technical calibration tools to aid the search from the crawl space up to the attic. 

Common areas of high moisture such as attics, crawl spaces, bathrooms, seldom-used rooms, and basements will be examined first. Proper house ventilation will also be evaluated to consider if the humidity trapped indoors is causing the problem.

Hidden Mold in Wall Cavity, Ceiling…

Finding Hidden Mold

Following the distinctive odor of mold will many times lead us to the mold outbreak. Mold will often be visible on a lower portion of a wall, beneath wallpaper, under a sink, behind a toilet, under the carpet…  When Mold is out of sight or hidden, calibrated humidity tools are used to find the excessive moisture, a necessary component of mold:

Infrared Technology uses a special camera to show cold spots that may hide a roof or plumbing leak.

Humidity levels can be taken throughout the home to find areas of excessive moisture- Likely a troubled location.

Camera on a Pole:  When mold is suspected behind a wall, a small hole will be opened through the wallboard in which a small camera attached to a thin bendable cable equipped with a strong light. The camera can be pushed through and then around the wall cavity while simultaneously being viewed on a remote screen: Good way to see if mold is growing within the wall cavity without doing a lot of damage to the wall.

Budget Mold Testing in Eden, NC

Mold Testing Lab

Mold Testing is often done for Post Remediation Testing to compare with Pre-Remediation Testing, Real Estate Closing Requirements and Court Ordered Testing for Personal Liability Law Suits brought by tenets of rentals or apartments.

Mold that is visible will in most situations negate any mold testing because all you need to know is where it is to start the removal. Plus, Mold removal regardless of species is accomplished with the same procedures.

Mold testing performed by a novice or careless technician is unreliable which is quite a problem if any decisions are based on it. Mold Samples are considered contaminated if testing materials were carelessly exposed to other locations. Mold spores are all-pervasive throughout our environment and different locations harbor different species. When it’s important to get accurate mold testing, hiring experts will provide accurate results.

Hero Mold Company is certified in mold testing. Our Mold testing technicians obtain samples in a clean catch manner and then, in the client’s presence, seal them in tamper-proof packaging. The samples are then sent to non- affiliated accredited Labs for analysis.

Samples of mold are collected in a few ways:

Clear sticky tape touched to the visible mold then lifted off.

A swab wiped across it then place into tamper-proof packaging.

The Mold samples are examined in a lab by a mold specialist who can determine species and age of colony often needed by insurance investigators to see if the mold was caused by a recent leak or a leak that has been unattended for a while. Don’t ever ignore a leak because the insurance agent might object to something that could have been covered if you didn’t show proper stewardship.

Air samples can be taken throughout the home or business to examine the number of mold spores floating through the air at a specific time and location. For example, air samples taken in a kitchen could be very different from the crawl space- one area could have mold and the other not. The expert comparison of several samples will give information on the quality of air throughout the building.  Caution- a control sample taken outdoors should also be part of the examination to understand what’s in the surrounding environment and highlight any unusual mold in the building.

DIY (Do it Yourself) Mold test Kits

Mold test kit

Home mail order test kits like petri-dishes have a dismal reputation. Mold spores are an ancient fungus that constantly floats throughout our environment so your test kit will probably develop mold because it’s the perfect environment for them.  Just one mold spore drifting through an open door or window and landing on the dish could in 24 to 48 hours grow a colony- in your non-infested home. The expert help of Hero Mold Company Investigators is free and you’ll have better success finding the mold in your home then haphazardly placing petri-dishes about the house.

Mold Test Results that are positive will sadly mean you’ll need mold removal. Hire a professional mold remediation company and get it done right from the start. Caution! Don’t Pay Too Much!

Why Crawl Space Encapsulation?

Before Crawl Space Encapsulation

Hero Mold Company offers affordable Encapsulation services in crawl space trouble with excessive moisture. Professional encapsulation, when accompanied with a dehumidifier or air exchange system, will control Mold, Rot, and Mildew. Insects, Pests will be mostly sealed out and the lack of moisture will not encourage them to come. Also, a controlled environment in the crawl space improves Energy Efficiency.

Most Houses have Crawl spaces designed with cross-ventilation vents to hopefully remove humidity and recycle the air that travels upwards into the home.  The spring, summer, and fall the vents are left open to the great outdoors to try and condition the air in the crawl space. During winter, the vents are closed to keep out the cold in an attempt to conserve energy.  A cold crawl space will draw heat from the building above because in most situations the insulation placed between the floor joists under the house is insufficient or ill-maintained.

After Crawl Space Encapsulation

Heavy Humidity trapped within a crawl space causes mold, mildew and become a draw for rodents and insects like termites and cockroaches who require moist conditions to survive. The wind and sunlight in the outside environment will eventually disperse humidity but in a crawl space, it tends to get trapped. Pests, like mice, drawn to the moist conditions will most likely get inside the crawl space and move throughout the home within the wall cavities sort of a hidden highway where they chew on wires, pipes and other building materials. Crawl Space Encapsulation is designed to control these problems.

Building Environmental Science teaches that 50% of the air in our homes comes from the crawl space. Crawl space air teeming with mold spores, mildew odors, radon gas and bacteria from pest waste travels upwards bringing foul odors and sometimes sickness to family members. Ask Hero Mold Removal to check the quality of the air in your crawl space. Test it for mold, mildew, insects, excessive moistures and rodents: This is all done at no charge or expectation.

The Best Encapsulation Team in Eden, NC

Environmental Atmosphere Control of the crawl space is accomplished through encapsulation and the installation of a proper-sized dehumidifier and/or air exchange system to combat the following issues:

Soft or rotting floor joists will be repaired during encapsulation.

High Heating and Cooling Costs will go down because heat is no longer being drawn by an unconditioned crawl space.

Wet Insulation will be removed and a new insulation system will be installed.

High Humidity will be removed with the installation of a dehumidifier.

Rodent and Insect Infestations will be repelled with a tightly sealed crawl space.

Whenever you smell mold or mildew odor rising up from the crawl space, enlist the help of a Budget-Friendly Encapsulation Specialist: Hero Mold Company.

Rocky Mount, North Carolina

Rocky Mount NC is a city in Edgecombe and Nash counties located in Northeastern North Carolina conveniently located off the I-95 corridor approximately 50 miles east of Raleigh-Durham. The landscape is that of a Coastal Plain level with agriculture and woodlands. Most residents say summers are hot with frequent rainstorms and Winters are mildly cold with only a few days of below-freezing temperatures, snow, and freezing rain.

History of Rocky Mount NC

Established

The city was established in 1867 at the Falls of the Tar River whose topography contains a large rocky mound and was obviously the inspiration for the city’s name of Rocky Mount. The Fall line refers to the spot where a river becomes impossible to navigate upstream and the water flowing downstream has a strong enough current to power a mill to grind cereal grain into flour- very important to early settlers.

Economy

Agricultural, cotton, and tobacco were its successful beginnings in the economic industry. This is the location of the second cotton mill in North Carolina in 1818 and was named Rocky Mount Mills which was operating with slave labor till the 1950s. It was run by the Battle family who was also involved in bringing the railroad through the town.

Through the 1800s and most of the 1900’s the Tar River powered the cotton mill looms that did the spinning, spooling, carding and warping of yarn inside the 300,000 square-foot complex of buildings. In 1996 the mill shut down sending its machines overseas to find cheaper labor like so many other textile mills across the Southern USA putting 320 people out of work.

Modern times the economy has developed into an area strong in high-tech manufacturing and biomedical pharmaceuticals. The location next to important highways and railway has encouraged a strong manufacturing base that has brought economic success to the city and its residents. Pfizer is one of the largest employers in the city.

Popular Neighborhoods in Rocky Mount

West Haven is a 70-year-old 25 block neighborhood in the city’s center. The neighborhood contains many large historic homes that have been restored to their Colonial Revival- style showing a stately appearance with tree-lined streets and azaleas everywhere on large period landscaped lots.
