CIRS Mold Testing and Remediation In New Jersey

What is Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome?

If someone experiences symptoms of Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome (CIRS), it is crucial to conduct mold testing.

Biotoxins trigger inflammation, causing symptoms such as fatigue, headaches, joint pain, brain fog, and difficulty concentrating. Unfortunately, CIRS can cause damage that lasts for a long time and is bad enough to affect the whole body.

What OSHA Says

OHSA estimates that more than 25% of buildings in the United States have water damage. OHSA recommends cleaning and drying damp surfaces within 24 to 48 hours to prevent mold growth.

A big part of treating CIRS is determining where the biotoxins are coming from and getting them out of the environment. But this isn’t always enough to alleviate the symptoms completely. Detection and remediation is the first step to getting better.

Most people’s symptoms improve once they no longer get exposed to water-damaged buildings and mold. For the 25% of people who have certain genetic markers, the toxins stay in the body and cause a chronic, systemic inflammatory reaction. These are the people who have CIRS, or mold disease. These patients often experience unexplained symptoms that significantly impact their quality of life.

Medical experts may also suggest detoxification treatments, like intravenous infusions or pills, to help reduce the symptoms of CIRS and help the body heal. Also, to get better from CIRS, you may need to make changes to your lifestyle, such as reducing stress and changing your food.

If you have CIRS, it’s time to get rid of the biotoxins in your home or office that are making you sick. For more information, get in touch with MasterTech Environmental Jersey Shore.

What do the symptoms of CIRS look like?

Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome can cause tiredness, headaches, body aches, fever, chills, night sweats, digestive problems, muscle and joint pain, skin rashes, nasal congestion and sinusitis, sensitivity to light, and dizziness. To be more specific:

  • Some cognitive signs are forgetfulness, trouble concentrating, and brain fog.
  • Neurological signs include burning or tingling in the hands or feet, problems with motor control, tremors, poor balance or coordination, and numbness.
  • Some of the psychological signs are depression, anxiety, mood swings, trouble sleeping, and being irritable.
  • People with CIRS can also be sensitive to chemicals, have trouble digesting certain foods, and have endocrine problems.

The severity of symptoms can be influenced by the duration of biotoxin exposure experienced by an individual. People who have had CIRS for a longer time are more likely to have more serious and more frequent flare-ups of their symptoms. If you have CIRS, you should see a doctor so they can identify your condition and figure out the best way to treat it.

Call MasterTech Environmental if you have been diagnosed with Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome and learn about our mold remediation services that actively remove the biotoxins impacting your health.

How are CIRS and biotoxin mold related?

Biotoxin mold grows when there is too much water in a building because of a leak or flooding. When this happens, mold starts to grow and releases mycotoxins and other dangerous chemicals into the air. This can lead to a number of lung diseases, as well as continuous inflammation and symptoms that affect the whole body. Stachybotrys chartarum, also called “black mold,” is the most common type of biotoxin mold that can cause CIRS.

If you think you may have been exposed to biotoxin mold, you should get checked for CIRS and get the right treatment. Along with tests for CIRS, it is important to find where the mold is coming from and get rid of it. MasterTech Environmental can help you figure out where the mold is coming from and make a plan for treating CIRS. Our team has dealt with biotoxin molds that cause CIRS for years and can give you expert help on how to keep your home or office safe.

Others have been helped by our CIRS Treatment Protocol, and it can help you too.

The first step in our CIRS Biotoxin Mold Process is a full evaluation of your New Jersey home or business.

To do this, we’ve come up with a Hybrid CIRS Mold Inspection Process that uses both industry-standard mold sampling methods and qPCR (ERMI, HERTSMI) tests.

These methods may include:

  • Air testing
  • Surface testing
  • Bulk sample collection
  • Visual inspection
  • Thermal Imaging
  • Moisture Mapping
  • Wall cavity sampling
  • qPCR Testing
  • ERMI/HERTSMI testing

Our testing method ensures that we consider both the building and the patient throughout the entire process. Once the examination is complete, we will analyze the samples and collaborate with your medical provider to determine their significance. If mold removal becomes necessary, our mold removal procedure may involve the following steps:

  1. Cleaning, removal and/or encapsulation of the mold source.
  2. Implementing ventilation solutions to ensure proper air flow.
  3. Sealing off any entry points for moisture.

By taking a modern, medically-approved approach to CIRS mold treatment, we can help reduce your exposure to biotoxins, as well as alleviate the symptoms of CIRS Syndrome.
