Molds occur in nature, and are always present in the air at various levels. Although airborne levels vary according to locale and environmental conditions, most individuals do not suffer adverse health effects from exposure to everyday levels. Occasionally, conditions indoors can be favorable for fungal growth resulting in increased levels of airborne spores, which can overwhelm the body’s natural defenses. Inhalation of such concentrations can result in allergic or toxic responses. Infection can occur in an otherwise healthy individual, but those most susceptible include infants, children, elderly, and immune compromised individuals such as those undergoing chemotherapy or suffering from liver disease. The health effects from molds depend on the length and level of exposure (chronic vs. acute) and on individual sensitivity. Health effects from exposure to molds can be divided into four general categories: infection, toxicosis, allergy and irritation.
Mold Removal is not a job for the average person, being that professionals are required not only to remove all mold that has infiltrated a house, business, or other entity, but to also prevent mold from returning to a structure. Professional mold remediation is recommended when harmful mold is present, because of the great risk that comes with removing toxic mold, the use of professional chemicals, training, and specialty equipment needed. If one uses chemicals such as bleach or other household items in order to eliminate mold, it often has the opposite effect and actually causes mold to spread. At EPS, our employees are certified and are some of the most experienced technicians in the field of mold removal where we will determine the type of mold present and also choose the best course of action to eradicate your home of mold.

What Separates EPS from the Competition?
Our Advanced Cleaner is 99.99% effective on MRSA, as well as affecting both gram-positive (Bacillus, Listeria, Staphylococcus, Streptococcus, Enterococcus, Clostridium) and gram-negative (Escherichia coli, Salmonella, Pseudomonas, Moraxella, Helicobacter,) bacteria. We apply our Advanced Cleaner to safely and effectively eradicate fungal growth from raw and finished building materials. Our cleaner penetrates fibers, crevices and voids found in raw and finished materials while it subsequently breaks down the cellular structure of the fungus and agglomerates the biofilm where it lives. For small areas, Spot Spray offers a cost-effective fungal contamination treatment solution. Once affected areas are cleaned, our Shield is applied to certain surfaces, which acts as a guardian against future contamination.
Our unique approach to mold and bacteria abatement utilizes a system which:
- Is Cost Effective
- Is Environmentally Friendly
- Minimizes Customer Disruption
- Is Minimally Invasive
