Method of Mold Removal
Mold can grow on a variety of building materials, and Titanium Laboratories is equipped to handle your mold removal project whether the mold growth is on your walls, flooring, ceiling, in your house or building. Generally, non-porous materials are cleaned and disinfected. Contingent upon the structural integrity, semi-porous materials, for example, concrete, can also be cleaned and disinfected to remove mold growth. Therefore, mold removal does not always demand total demolition and can often be accomplished in a relatively affordable and straight-forward manner.
When porous materials are affected by water damage and / or mold growth, likely they will need to be discarded and are evaluated by your mold removal professional on a case-by-case basis. In discarding the mold infested materials, specialized care is taken to contain the area and prevent mold spores from dispersing throughout your house or building’s indoor air environment. In commercial mold removal situations, communication is clear and concise to protect all occupants during mold removal.
Why Mold Removal is Important
There is a lot of conflicting information on various websites and news sources about mold and mold removal. In all cases, the presence of mold growth is cause for mold removal. Usually, if the total affected area is minor, then mold removal does not require the use of a professional, although the use of a professional is always wise as they are trained to identify the cause for the mold growth and the possibility for future mold growth. When mold growth is not addressed, it can cause several problems which can exacerbate over time.
Mold growth can reduce the structural integrity of building materials on which it grows.
In our natural environment, mold serves a very important purpose by decomposing organic matter such as leaves and plant debris, redistributing the nutrients back into the earth. Sadly, this can also happen when mold begins to grow on wallboard, ceiling tiles, wood, and other building substrates, weakening the structural integrity of the material on which it grows. Hence, it is always best to tackle mold removal sooner than later to maintain a structurally sound property.
Black mold is not apparent, so it must not be “toxic black mold”
Contrary to popular belief, black mold is not the only species of mold requiring mold remediation. All species of mold call for mold removal as they are known to cause potential allergens as well as decay the building materials on which they grow. Mold growth, any species, has the potential for releasing allergen-causing spores throughout the indoor air environment. It is true that a few select species of mold create mycotoxins (toxic substances), releasing them into the indoor air environment, placing the occupants of the building at various health risks. An example of a mycotoxin causing mold is the well-known “black mold”, also known as “toxic black mold”, formerly identified as “Stachybotrys chartarum”. Toxic black mold is indeed black in color, but when mold growth is spotted that is black in color, it is not always considered to be stachybotrys chartarum. Mold growth cannot be identified simply by a visual mold inspection; nevertheless, if mold growth exists, mold removal is generally recommended. Understanding the species of mold that exist is important in certain mold removal cases; the presence of toxic black mold or any mycotoxin producing mold will definitely be taken under consideration in your specific mold remediation plan.
Basement Mold Removal
House mold is commonly found in the basement. Basement mold is generally a result of excessive humidity, high temperatures, and inadequate ventilation. An unfinished basement with concrete walls presents a a very straightforward solution to remove mold from the affected area.

As in all mold removal strategies, resolving the underlying cause of your basement mold is the first and most important step in your mold remediation plan. Titanium Laboratories Certified Mold Inspection will help you implement the best plan of action to remove mold and prevent future mold from recurring in your home’s basement.
