What is Mold

Mold is natural and exists almost everywhere indoors or out. Mold thrives in damp and humid environments.  Molds are fungi and as they grow they release spores into the air, which when inhaled, can make people sick.  When molds metabolize, they release microbial volatile organic compounds (MVOCs).  MVOCs are gases which are basically the waste product produced by mold as it grows,  which can irritate the eyes, the respiratory system, and cause very unpleasant odors in the basement and in the upper levels of the home.

Mold spores may get into your home through open doorways, windows, heating, and air conditioning systems with outdoor air intakes. Spores in the air outside also attach themselves to clothing, shoes, bags, and pets.  Once a mold spore drops on places where there is excessive moisture, such as many basements, they will grow.  Wet cellulose materials, including paper and paper products, cardboard, ceiling tiles, wood, and wood products encourage many types of mold to grow.  Other materials such as dust, paint, wallpaper, insulation, drywall, carpet, fabric, and upholstery, easily support the growth of mold.

Testimonials

This was the second visit by Vulcan – the service technicians were very professional and did an amazing job – reviewed the project with me and explained what they were going to do and why they needed to do it – then they started right in and did the work. I would highly recommend this crew to anyone looking to get a water issue resolved in their basement.

Great service, very knowledgable staff and hard working crew! Install went well: 160 linear feet of underdrain pipe and crushed stone with 2 sump pits (one pit with 1 pump and the other upper pit with 2 pumps). Pumps run fine when needed. We now have a dry finished basement with peace of mind. Thanks Vulcan, great job!

Our basement flooded several times and had water level of up to 4 feet in one corner of the house. Vulcan assessed the situation and added french drains and new sump pump. They were very professional and not too costly. We haven’t had any issues since, this was in early 2000s.
