Superior Cleaning & Restoration provides professional mold abatement, mold remediation and removal services for the Central Wisconsin communities. Mold abatement of mold-contaminated areas require extensive training and experience. The removal, remediation and cleanup of mold should only be performed by a Certified Mold Remediation Technician. Mold clean up work is time consuming and tedious, and must be performed in a self contained clean room. We follow these extensive mold abatement precautions to prevent mold spores from spreading from the mold contaminated areas to the non-contaminated areas. We properly remove mold and determine the underlying cause of the mold growth - to prevent reoccurrence of the mold.
Mold is nature's way of decaying organic waste matter (leaves, sticks, etc). When a structure or area becomes wet and does not dry properly, the result is mold growth. Most molds do not harm healthy people, but people who have allergies or asthma may be more sensitive to molds. A small number of molds produce toxins called mycotoxins. Sensitive people may experience skin rash, running nose, eye irritation, cough, nasal congestion, aggravation of asthma or difficulty breathing. People with an immune suppression or underlying lung disease, may be at increased risk for infections from molds. If you or your family members have health problems that you suspect are caused by exposure to mold, you should consult with your physician.
Molds may be found in damp areas of your home, such as the basement, around leaky pipes, and in carpets, walls or ceilings that have sustained water damage. You may see it or smell it. Once mold has colonized, they can cause serious health issues for humans. Black mold and mildew are some of the molds that we have abatement experience with. Moisture is essential to the growth of black mold, and when it is wet, it is shiny in appearance. If you were to physically touch a spot of black mold, it would feel slimy and would smear on the area. Areas and substances where black mold can be found include water soaked wood, ceiling tiles, wall paneling, cardboard, even items made of cotton. Black mold can grow on drywall and insulation and can infest areas in the floors, walls and ceilings.
