MOLD REMEDIATION

Mold is a naturally occuring fungus that develops as a result of three limiting factors: moisture, temperature, and a source of growth.  Mold has always been present in households and offices, indoors and out.  But, today it has been identified that mold spores can worsen allergies, increase respiratory problems, and cause headaches by means of inhalation or ingestion.  Although the extent of health effects is medically unproven it has been a hot topic over the last decade.  Removing hazardous mold from households and work environments is something that needs to be taken care of immediately. Unlike the other hazardous elements that GEC handles, mold spreads and grows over time making it actively dangerous.  With similar procedures as other types of abatement, mold remediation is another environmental hazard that GEC specializes in removing.​
