Mold Remediation

Mold can be found anywhere and can grow on almost any substance when moisture is present. In Singapore, conditions like humidity and dampness, flooding and water damage create an ideal environment for the growth of mold, especially in indoor environments.

As molds produce allergens, mold can cause allergic reactions and irritate the eyes, skin, nose, throat and lungs of anyone, leading to symptoms such as sneezing, runny nose, red eyes and skin rash.

The most important measure that needs to be taken for mold removal is to reduce moisture levels. Remediation practice includes an assessment of the location and extent of the mold contamination in a building or home, which is vital to identify the source and ensure that the re-occurrence of mold is minimized. Detection and removal of mold affected materials is also necessary.

Harmful Effects of Mold

Molds produce allergens that can cause allergic reactions and irritate the eyes, skin, nose, throat and lungs of anyone. Sick Building Syndrome is a condition that occurs when several occupants in the building show symptoms like headache, dizziness, nausea, eye, nose or throat irritation, dry cough, dry or itching skin, hoarseness of voice, allergies, cold, flu-like symptoms and increased incidence of asthma attacks. These can have detrimental consequences for health and workplace productivity.

Scientific studies have attributed the causes of these symptoms and the Sick Building Syndrome to the presence of microbiological contaminants like mould and fungus in indoor environments. These fungi, like Aspergillus, Penicillium, Geotrichum, Alternaria, Cladosporium, Mucor, Rhizopus, Trichoderma and Fusarium produces volatile organic compounds that are toxic in nature and create symptoms like the Sick Building Syndrome.
