Mold Inspection

We offer exceptional mold remediation services. Certified Mold Treatment and removal will come into your building and inspect it for any visible mold and all areas where mold can grow. This mold inspection includes A/C ducts, building foundations, overhead areas (i.e.) attics, hanging ceiling tiles, and all open areas and carpeting. You will be asked to fill out an agreement for mold test and sampling. We send these samples to a certified lab to analyze what kind of mold is growing in your building.

Where is the mold?

— It could be airborne. And it could be Toxic Mold. If you are sensitive to mold, the mold does not have to be toxic to make you feel bad. There are very few options that you can do about mold because mold spores are everywhere. Excess mold is not good, even for a healthy person who is not sensitive. So how do you find out? Test the air you breathe. If high mold counts are detected, there is something you can do. We do both viable and non-viable testing.

During the mold inspection spore, trap air samples are collected. The samples are collected using air-sampling pumps spore trap test results are reported as the number of spores found per cubic meter of air. This is a non-viable test, but it does not tell us if it is a dangerous or harmless mold. When air samples are collected indoors, at least one air sample is taken outdoors. The outdoors sample establishes a baseline for comparative evaluation of the indoor samples. Because there are no Federal standards for mold spore count levels in residences, schools, or other buildings, the Industry guidelines are derived from ACGIH (American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists).

The indoor air quality will be degraded if the mold measured in indoor air is substantially greater than the mold measured in outdoor air. If the indoor air samples show elevated levels of mold spores, such samples are considered positive for mold.

The next type of mold inspection is a viable sample. This is normally done with a Petri dish in which an Agar solution is poured into the dish to “activate” it. This solution is like “Apple Pie and Steroids for mold growth” The dish is in a sealed and airtight sterile container and is activated by unsealing and pouring the reactive food source on site. By doing this, the only mold that grows in the dish is a representative sample of the type of mold in your home.

In four days, the mold will become apparent to the naked eye, and we can send it to a lab for a definitive analysis that will positively identify the species. If it is a dangerous or harmful mold, we will immediately inform you to take corrective measures.

Remember this, 24,000 mold spores can fit on a US postage stamp! If the spores are of a dangerous species, they will travel all over the entire building, and this will only get worse if left untreated.

Mold Removal

The Procedure for Ozonating a Structure for mold removal are as follows:

  • Isolate the building envelope for mold removal (seal exits and leak points).
  • Configure the ventilation system to run in full recirculation mode.
  • Spray and clean all visible mold with a germicide.
  • Place the ozone feed gas hose inside the ductwork.
  • Engage the Ozone Generator and monitor building levels using a high-end Ozone Sensor.
  • Operate the system until effective levels of Ozone gas are achieved throughout the building.
  • Upon completion, run negative air machine to create negative pressure to capture and vent outside 99.97% of particles .3 microns in size and larger.
  • Verify no residual ozone is left in the building before entering.
  • Fog the entire building with an antimicrobial agent to ensure no future mold growth.
  • Mold Removal using ozone The ventilation system is run in full recirculation mode.

Figure #1 illustrates the setup of an ozone mold removal remediation system. The outside air intakes must be closed, as well as the doors and windows. The ozone generator could inject ozone directly into the duct or air-handling unit. Ozone sensors should be distributed around the building to ensure that sufficient levels of ozone are reached.

Monitoring of the ozone levels does require high-end sensors. CMT uses those with accuracy and sensitivity in the range of 1-10 PPM, such as the one shown here.

Why Ozone Mold Removal

Mold Removal with Ozone as well as, fungus and viruses.

Ozone is a form of oxygen that can sterilize MOLD spores in a matter of hours. Mold Removal with Ozone can be used at higher levels inside enclosed rooms or buildings for Anthrax or other DEADLY FORMS OF PATHOGENIC MATERIAL.

Ozone tends to break down rapidly in air, especially in sunlight or in high humidity. It rapidly converts back into oxygen from whence it was made.

Ozone can be generated fairly easily with various types of ozone generators like the one shown. Some of these units, like those used for industrial water disinfection, can produce over 1500 ppm.

Ozone is a naturally occurring gas created from oxygen. The oxygen molecule is made up of 2 oxygen atoms. These oxygen molecules are broken into atoms by the Corona Discharge o3 Generator. Single oxygen atoms cannot exist alone without regrouping back into diatomic oxygen molecules. During this recombination stage, some atoms will regroup into loosely bonded tri-atomic oxygen. This new molecule is called Ozone or O3

Ozone for mold removal

Due to the loose bond in this oxygen molecule – 03 is a very strong oxidant and an ideal chemical-free purification and disinfecting agent. The most effective way to produce ozone commercially is through the use of pulse injected corona discharge. Disinfection by tri-atomic oxygen occurs through the rupture of the cell wall.

Mold removal with O3 is a more efficient method than Chlorine, which depends upon diffusion into the cell protoplasm and inactivation of the enzymes. An O3 level of 0.4 PPM for 4 minutes has been shown to remove any bacteria, virus, mold, and fungus. 1 part per million is equivalent to: 8.345 pounds per million gallons (US). At high levels, the sanitizing effect increases dramatically. For complete disinfection, a surplus or residual O3 has to be maintained in the air to assure that every living microorganism has been contacted.

O3 is very effective in attacking mold, mildew, and mold spores. At high levels, O3 deteriorates the cell structure of these microorganisms and breaks down their ability to reproduce. As the generator fills the entire space with ozone, every interior surface, including floors, ceilings, closets, furniture, and clothing, gets sanitized. While O3 is unable to pass through solid walls, it goes where normal air can go, even down into cracks and crevices.

If the area smells musty, there’s a good chance that live mold spores are in the air. These spores can reproduce by the millions creating health issues and damaging the building and its contents. Shock treatment remediation is required to remove mold odor because mold and mildew thrive in damp environments and those areas with poor air circulation.
