Molds are fungi that can be found both indoors and outdoors. Estimates range from tens of thousands to perhaps three-hundred-thousand or more types of mold. Exposure to molds can cause symptoms such as nasal stuffiness, eye irritation, wheezing or skin irritation, or more serious allergies. Severe reactions may occur among workers in occupational settings exposed to large amounts of molds. These reactions may include fever and shortness of breath. Some people with chronic lung illnesses, such as obstructive lung disease, may develop mold infections in their lungs. Though the type of reaction depends upon the mold present, both the EPA and CDC state that all molds have the potential to cause health issues.
ARC’s team of trained mold abatement technicians utilize proven methods to eradicate mold and help prevent the recurrence of growth. Typical remediation can include the removal and packaging of mold-contaminated material, application of biocides, and sealing-off affected areas. Our services have been utilized by medical facilities, schools, apartments, and commercial buildings. ARC is highly respected for its ability to provide mold removal services while protecting the integrity of your facility.
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 exterior and overall structure.
The Building Air Quality, regulations developed by the EPA and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, provides practical recommendations and solutions 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. ARC can provide an assessment to determine if your facility has mold issues.
