Trusted Moisture Remediation for Your Residential or Commercial Property
The quality of your flooring installation depends on the amount of moisture that accumulates on its surface. Before you can install any type of flooring product, a test to identify the amount of moisture and vapor emissions is imperative. If you have a high degree of moisture, it can lead to mold and mildew growth and over time, bubbling and curling, which will eventually require you to rip out the flooring for repairs.
Making Sure You Meet Your Moisture Requirements
Also, installation warranties and product warranties require a certain minimal level of contamination, emission levels, and moisture content before, during, and post-installation. If these requirements are not met, then the flooring warranty will be null and void. Therefore, you must know the moisture content and vapor emissions before investing in installing new flooring, or you could just be throwing money out the window.
Fungi is a natural part of the environment and is necessary for the breakdown of organic material outdoors like dead trees and leaves, but when it’s indoors, it can jeopardize your family’s health and wellbeing. A fungus reproduces via microscopic spores that can become airborne and circulate in your home. Although they’re invisible, they can get trapped in your ductwork and wreak havoc on your indoor air quality and health. Fungi spores are attracted to wet surfaces and land where they reproduce; therefore, without moisture and water, they cannot grow.
Fungi spores only become problematic when they land on wet or damp surfaces around your home where the spores can multiply and grow. Some fungi have the potential to lead to serious health concerns, like causing allergic reactions and irritation, and in extreme cases, they can be toxic. Some symptoms of fungus exposure are consistent with hay fever: sneezing, skin rash, red eyes, and a runny nose.

The following techniques might be necessary to clean up your fungus issue:
- Fix leaky plumbing or other problems and dry it out completely
- Scrub surfaces with water and industry-approved solvents
- If you have porous or absorbent materials, such as carpeting, that have become infected, remove them. Once a fungus gets into the crevices of a porous surface, it is nearly impossible to get rid of
- Do not caulk or paint over fungi. It will most likely peel off
- For valuable items, specific restoration, repair, or cleaning techniques might be necessary
Is Testing or Sampling for Fungi Necessary?
When you see fungi growth, taking a sample is not necessary. The EPA currently has no set guideline or threshold for fungi spores, so sampling will not help with any compliance with federal fungi standards. Sampling surfaces, however, might be a good way to verify if an area has been thoroughly remediated. Only a trained professional should do the sampling because they are familiar with fungus sampling methods, protocol, and interpretation.
