Molds, which are found in almost 100% of buildings, survive and propagate by collecting on damp surfaces and thriving on the water. The key to mold growth is the presence of moisture. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that humidity levels in houses remain below 50%, maintain adequate ventilation in all areas especially kitchens and bathrooms, use mold inhibiting paint in humid rooms, clean with mold killing products, and do not have carpet in bathrooms.

Mold can be any color and can be spotted in appearance or be pervasive over an entire surface. When you see mold growing in your house, call ACT and we will come out and evaluate the extent of your problem. Our mold abatement procedures include: preliminary assessments, site investigations, risk assessments, and remediation of the Site. Remediation includes industrial style cleaning and scrubbing of the infected area, and the application of mold inhibiting paint over the surface so that there cannot be a recurrence of mold. Mold can be found in dirty air conditioning units, humidifiers, and heaters, un-vented kitchens, bathrooms, laundry rooms, and attic spaces, dirty refrigerators drip pans, carpet on damp floors, and water damaged windows, roofs, and basements.
