Chronic Inflammatory Response Syndrome (CIRS) is real. And you're not on your own.
When working with CIRS patients, we understand how important it is to have attention to detail as well as a good network of qualified professionals who are ready to assist. In our experience, a CIRS patient needs the following:
A healthcare provider knowledgeable in biotoxin illness, especially with regard to mold toxicity
A remediation contractor experienced in working with CIRS patients and their medical practitioners
A certified inspector who knows where to look and how to develop protocols sufficient for CIRS patients (psst....that's us!)
Definition of CIRS
"An acute and chronic, systemic inflammatory response syndrome acquired following exposure to the interior environment of a water-damaged building with resident toxigenic organisms, including, but not limited to fungi, bacteria, actinomycetes and mycobacteria as well as inflammagens such as endotoxins, beta glucans, hemolysins, proteinases, mannans and possibly spirocyclic drimanes; as well as volatile organic compounds."
Why is the CIRS protocol different?
Individuals living with CIRS are often susceptible, sometimes to an extreme degree, to levels of mold and other biotoxins that most people can simply pee out. This makes proper discovery and thorough remediation protocols even more important.
Due to the way microbials reproduce and migrate, whole-home remediation protocols and post-remediation verification testing are essential.
Proper investigation = proper remediation = road to health
