The largest problems can sometimes come from the smallest organisms. Even the most innocent of things such as dust and dirt may lead to a sneezing frenzy, and giving into the temptation to scratch that insatiable itch, but the number one risk that causes home damage, health issues and threatens to make our comfortable life as uncomfortable as possible is that vile villain—mold.
Mold, as we very well know is a tiny organism that is particularly fond of growing in dark, damp and humid spaces. When viewed from afar or up close, they seem like the most unlikely threat to you or your home. However, big things come in small packages and mold is no exception. The presence of mold spots on your tiles, floors or ceilings should not be taken lightly. Those tiny organisms, when left alone have the capacity to make you very ill and wreak havoc on your home.
When mold reproduces, they diffuse spores into the air. For some types of molds, their spores are coated with a chemical known as mycotoxin—which is the toxin that has the grim power to make you devastatingly ill. Continuous exposure to the mycotoxin could only lead to several illnesses and further discomfort, including:
In this way, not only do you place yourself in harm’s way, but the very structure of your home is also at risk. Molds are secondary damage caused by flood. When mold is present, it indicates that a portion of your home is still quite moist from the aftermath of the disaster. If Molds are present on the various surfaces of your home—especially those made of wood—they are able to eat and soften the material, thus reducing the strength of your home.
Don’t despair, though. Mold can be vanquished through the process of mold remediation. But, when mold remediation isn’t enough to remove the persistent mold, it’s time to bring out a stronger weapon, and when it comes to disinfecting and sanitizing any area, you can be sure that we, at First Atlantic Restoration have just the thing for you.
When it comes to disinfecting, as well as sanitizing any area, we are very happy to introduce our SteraMist™ system. Specially developed in collaboration and coordination with Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) after the terrible anthrax attacks off 2001, the SteraMist™ utilizes binary ionization technology to eliminate harmful microorganisms found in any given space.
The application of atmospheric cold plasma and low-concentration hydrogen peroxide-based solution enables the system to create Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS.) This sufficiently damages the pathogenic organism by oxidizing unsaturated fat and amino acids, leading to cellular disruption, as well as dysfunction.
We are pleased to note that we have two types of SteraMist™ systems:
Whichever type you prefer, we can assure you that both systems are of durable quality, economical and safe to use. It leaves virtually no residue, does not require you to mix or dilute it with any sort of liquid and does not harm any electrical equipment. As an added bonus, you can most definitely smell the scent of cleanliness after every use.
