Mold is never a pleasant discovery; often, finding it in a house or business is just the beginning of a larger problem. First, the mold must be contained and removed to prevent further damage and health risks. Then, the area must be meticulously cleaned and restored to inhibit mold from returning.
Free Mold Inspections
Water damage is the number one reason for mold in a home or business. The problem worsens if the water damage has not been properly addressed.
We offer free mold inspections to determine if a problem is present. Mold inspections begin with locating the source. We then branch out, inspecting the entire property for mold growth. Once the review is complete, we develop a customized mold remediation plan and immediately begin the removal and remediation process.
Our Mold Damage Remediation & Removal Process
Our process removes mold safely and effectively from the house or property. Here is a rundown of our methodology.
Finding the Source: The source must be located for the mold to be fully removed. Therefore, we search basements, attics, crawl spaces, and any place mold can hide.
Containment: Once the cause of the mold has been found, we seal off the area to prevent spores from spreading to other parts of the property. We know mold can become airborne during remediation, so preventing those spores from spreading is important. State-of-the-art containment chambers are utilized to keep the air safe for everyone.
Removal: We identify and remove the source of moisture and any materials contaminated with mold. Sometimes, this may mean removing drywall, insulation, and carpet.
Clean and Disinfect: After removing the mold, the area needs a deep cleaning. Some mold spores are not visible to the naked eye. This step ensures all the spores have been addressed.
Drying: Finally, we will dry the area. This is a critical step as it prevents mold from returning after the clean-up.
Do Not Handle Mold
Mold remediation is a complex process. It's important to have a team of experienced professionals working on the remediation for a seamless resolution. We use a combination of negative air pressure, HEPA-filtered vacuums, and air scrubbers to guarantee mold spores are removed from the property.
