Mold Remediation and Mold Removal

Don’t let mold ruin your health!

QAC Mold Removal

Mold remediation is a critical element of maintaining a safe and healthy home environment for you and your loved ones.

Mold remediation is important to you and your family! Mold will not only cause musty odors, but may also cause a number of health problems including allergy symptoms and respiratory issues. Besides harming your family’s health, mold ruins the surfaces and structures on which it grows. So, failure to address a mold problem can result in high replacement and rebuild costs.

Our Mold Remediation Products

Quality Air Care (QAC) is an authorized Caltex dealer and trained to use their system. Caltex produces products that are organic, non-toxic, biodegradable, environmentally safe and USDA approved for mold remediation. QAC is always looking for and developing cutting edge technologies.

Our Mold Removal System

Caltex invented and improved the Low Volume Low Pressure (LVLP) technology in 1986. The LVLP system is applied as a fine mist. It penetrates and deep cleans without causing damage to wood surfaces. It will not raise the grain or cause splintering. It does restore wood to its natural honey tone. It restores the roof to its original condition and will bring the luster back to faded siding. This exclusive system will lift failed sealers and stain. This system for mold remediation is very effective.

The Mold Extraction Technology (MET) in mold remediation will pull the mold out of attics and basements. There is no need to paint or encapsulate moldy surfaces. We also offer mold inhibitors recommended by the CDC which inhibit the regrowth of mold and mildew.

Our products are environmentally safe and USDA approved.

They are non-toxic, biodegradable, and organic.

Our mold inhibitors are recommended by the CDC.

QAC uses Low Volume Low Pressure (LVLP) Technology

Our mold remediation approach uses LVLP with an appropriate methodology. Our products do the work and the LVLP System allows for thorough coverage, full soaking into the surface’s pores, with less streaking on the application surface. Low pressure means streaking is minimized. The fine mist application coupled with our product(s) results in a deep and thorough cleaning of the surface to which it is applied. On the other hand, high pressure systems create streaking, streams and runoff. Low pressure avoids these problems.

What is Mold Remediation?

Mold remediation is the process of cleaning the mold and eliminating the moisture problem. The process is determined by the size of the remediation and whether occupants are experiencing any adverse symptoms that may be related to the mold. Since mold, destroys the surface materials it is on, remediation can preserve the structural integrity of the building. Failure to address a mold problem, ultimately can result in high replacement and rebuild costs.

Why Should Mold Be Remediated?

Mold remediation offers the following benefits:

  • Preventing or reducing adverse health problems
  • Preserving the integrity of the structure
  • Avoiding high replacement costs if the problem is addressed early on
  • Retaining the beauty and cosmetic appeal of the structure
  • Utilizing the mold-free room(s) again
  • Enhancing the resale value of the property

Moldy Surfaces Before Caltex Treatment

Mold-Free Surfaces After Caltex Treatment

Do you know where mold is commonly located?

  • In basements near walls that have seepage problems
  • On attic walls, insulation, and ceilings near roof leaks
  • On and around wooden joists near pipe condensation
  • Under or around leaking air conditioning units
  • Near broken windows or broken window frames
  • Underneath wallpaper in poorly insulated/paneled areas
  • Near foundation cracks
  • On and around faulty external vents
  • Under leaky sinks and the linoleum near a sink leak
  • On and around building infestation problems
  • On the underside of moist carpeting
  • Under wall paneling
  • Behind wallboard
  • Near wet papers
  • On anything that contains cellulose, a food source for mold
  • In many more places

Indoors, mold growth may not always be in plain view. If a building smells moldy but you cannot see the source, or if you know there as been water damage and building occupants are reporting health problems, there may be hidden mold.

Here are more Caltex International Before and After Examples

Moldy Surfaces Before Caltex Treatment

Mold-Free Surfaces After Caltex Treatment

Do you know where else mold can hide?

  • On basement walls
  • In the back sides of dry wall, wallpaper or paneling
  • On the tops of ceiling tiles, and the underside of carpets and pads
  • In pie chases and utility tunnels
  • On walls behind furniture
  • In condensate drain pans inside air handling units
  • On porous thermal or acoustic liners inside duct work, or roof materials above ceiling tiles (due to roof leaks or insufficient insulation).
  • In materials such as dry wall with vinyl wallpaper over it
  • On wood paneling that acts as vapor barrier trapping moisture underneath

Do you know the major types of mold?

  • Stachybotrys is one member of a group of molds. These molds produce airborne toxins. These molds can cause breathing difficulties, dizziness, memory and hearing loss, and flulike symptoms.
  • Cladosporium and Penicillium are more commonly found molds but these molds can cause allergic reactions, asthma, breathing problems, sinus infections, headaches, coughing and eye and throat irritation.
  • Memnoniella and Aspergillus versicolor are two types of mold that can produce airborne toxins. They produce mycotoxins and can cause even worse problems. These problems are chronic fatigue, loss of balance and memory, irritability and difficulty speaking.
