Meet Our Partner in Damage Repair – The Industrial Hygienist

February 9, 2018 | Blog

At Dry Patrol, our goal is not merely to provide homeowners with swift, water and mold remediation services. Those are merely our methods. Our objective is to return homes to livable conditions and upended lives to normal.

Mold can destroy whatever it grows on if left untreated, this includes housing structures. Mold also can cause very serious health problems. According to the EPA, molds produce allergens, irritants, and in some cases, potentially toxic substances (mycotoxins). Inhaling or touching mold or mold spores may cause allergic reactions in sensitive individuals. Allergic responses include hay fever-type symptoms, such as sneezing, runny nose, red eyes, and skin rash. Allergic reactions to mold are common and may be immediate or delayed. Molds can also cause asthma attacks in people with asthma who are allergic to mold. In addition, mold exposure can irritate the eyes, skin, nose, throat, and lungs of both mold allergic and non-allergic people.

TRANSCRIPT:

Hi I’m Rachel Adams. I am with Indoor Environmental Management, Inc. I am here today to help Dry Patrol inspect a home that has incurred water damage and has been impacted by mold.

My role as an Industrial Hygienist is to come in and inspect the home, potentially collect indoor air quality samples and provide a written report, or protocol, that will help them ensure that they understand all the steps that are needed to get this house back to livable condition. Once this job has been completed, I will return to collect indoor air quality samples to verify that the process that they completed were successful.
