Whenever there is excess moisture from the high humidity region we live in or after water damage or flooding there is the potential for mold growth. Mold can be very dangerous especially to young children or those with compromised immune systems. Here are some tips you can follow if you do discover mold in your home or business.
- Step 1: Isolate the area where you found the mold. Don’t enter the area and prevent air from this area getting into any other area of the building. This includes turning off the HVAC system, and closing doors and windows to the area.
- Step 2: Call STOP Restoration at (336) 203-0739. Our technicians are trained to seal the air space and remove the contaminated building materials without contaminating the rest of your home or business. We have the specialized equipment and training to ensure that the microscopic allergens and spores are removed from the area as well as the construction expertise to put your building back together once the mold is gone.
- Step 3: Hire an independent 3rd party to test the area after mold remediation is completed. This will ensure the mold has been removed before reconstruction begins. Having a 3rd party perform the test will help ensure that the test results are valid and unbiased.
