ARC has completed 440,000 hours over 1,200 mildew and mold removal projects in schools, hospitals, hotels, industrial facilities and government buildings. Using negative pressure engineering, we offer natural mold and mildew removal services including controls to prevent further contamination. Using up-to-date, effective and proven solutions, we respond on a 24-hour basis. We also offer mold testing.
Out with the old and in with the new, as it were. ARC Abatement’s Dallas team removed approximately 200,000 square feet of asbestos and 180,000 square feet of mold from a Gainesville, Texas hospital that was renovated into a senior care facility. Under the leadership of GM Steve Chappell, this half-million dollar project was completed in mid-April 2016, for a total of three months start to finish. The exterior of the hospital will be kept, so all interior renovations are done to preserve the shell.
The Building Air Quality, developed by the EPA and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, provides practical suggestions on preventing, identifying, and resolving indoor air quality (IAQ) problems in public and commercial buildings.
According to the EPA, some compounds produced by molds have strong smells and are volatile and quickly released into the air. These compounds are known as microbial volatile organic compounds (mVOCs). Because mVOCs often have strong or unpleasant odors, they can be the source of the “moldy odor” or musty smell frequently associated with mold growth. A moldy odor suggests that mold is growing in the building and should be investigated.
