>Indoor Air Quality - MOLD
There's a Fungus is Among US and has been since the beginning
the Old Testament, Leviticus 14:35-48 describes the concern
and prescribes abatement of microbial growth within ancient
dwellings. Leviticus 14:37 states "And he shall look on the
plague, and, behold, if the plague be in the walls of the
house with hollow strakes, greenish or reddish, which in sight
are lower than the wall".
The professionals at Oasis Environmental are ready to assist
you and your firm with all Indoor Air Quality concerns, from
assessment to abatement. Our trained staff travels throughout
New England assisting residential and commercial property
owners in the delineation, speciation, and quantification
of bio-aerosols (MOLD) as well as the fungal by-products,
namely Microbial Volatile Organic Compounds (MVOC), that are
often the cause of unpleasant odors.
Problem: Mold and mold spores have been on earth since
biblical times. The members of this Kingdom known as "Fungi"
have one purpose, and that is to break down organic (carbon-based)
material. In the process, mold can aggravate health problems
such as allergies or more serious health concerns. Simply
stated, mold spores are present throughout our New England
environment. The spores become a problem when they are allowed
to flourish within our homes and businesses. Generally,
mold grows (or amplifies) when the conditions exist to support
growth such as moisture, high relative humidity, or both.
energy efficient buildings tend to limit the escape of moisture,
and some of the building materials such as gypsum board
(sheetrock) provide a highly digestible food source for
mold. Before you know it, mold can take a foothold.
Solution: Utilize the services of Oasis Environmental,
a qualified Indoor Air Quality Consultant, to conduct Mold
Inspections and Moisture Surveys on the property to determine
if mold is an issue. Oasis
personnel have conducted hundreds of inspections utilizing
state of the art equipment and procedures to evaluate building
environments. With over twenty-nine years of environmental
experience, we turn guesswork into tangible data, which can
be used to assist buyers and sellers in making sensible decisions.
To add to the problem, no recognized agency, such as EPA,
CDC, or other, can tell us what is a safe or acceptable
level of Mold. However, the American Testing Standard Material
Organization is in the process of adding Mold Inspections
to the Environmental Site Assessment (non-scope) protocol.
With the current level of mold related litigation in the
courts, it will not be long before mold inspection and possible
disclosure language starts appearing in real estate agreements
and disclosure forms.
Our Exemplum and Exemplum Plus programs offer comprehensive
residential evaluations while providing the flexibility many
homeowners desire. Our Sanctus program provides our Commercial
clientele with a wide array of available test protocols and
procedures to thoroughly evaluate indoor air quality.
