Nobody wants to hear they have mold in their home, but it’s an unfortunately common problem. If you find yourself facing a mold problem, skip the DIY and let our professionals handle it so you can be sure it’s done the right way the first time.

Mold Remediation and Cleaning Services

Mold remediation is the process of cleaning and disinfecting rooms in order to kill existing mold, stop the spread, and prevent its return. Mold spores are present in a dormant state virtually everywhere. In order for mold to grow and spread it needs three things:

  • Organic food source
  • Oxygen
  • Water

The first two are in plentiful supply everywhere. That’s why even a small water damage needs to be mitigated as soon as possible. The addition of water can give mold the opportunity to spread unchecked, causing structural damage and risking the health of the inhabitants of the building.

Proven Mold Remediation Processes

Efficient and safe mold removal is the key to effective mold remediation. That’s why we use a proven remediation process backed by IICRC standards and training. From the first step to the last, you can rest assured that the safety of you and your home are at the forefront of our minds.

  1. Inspection: Our contractor will come to your home or business to perform an inspection to determine the location and source of the mold.
  2. Containment: Proper containment is imperative to stopping the spread of mold spores throughout the rest of the building.
  3. Filtration: We will sue HEPA filters to remove mold spores and other contaminants from the air.
  4. Mold Removal: We will remove and properly dispose of affected, porous materials and clean non-porous materials with antimicrobials.
  5. Structural Drying: We will dry the moisture source that led to the mold growth and advise on repairs so the problem doesn’t come back.

Frequently Asked Questions

Anytime the moisture levels in your home are at 60% or higher, mold can grow. What’s frustrating for many property owners is that they don’t see a puddle on the floor or water dripping from the ceiling. When mold grows, the source of the moisture is usually hidden under floorboards or behind walls.

It could be. Because mold spores are microscopic and airborne, you’ll end up breathing them into your lungs. Depending on the type of mold and how well your immune system functions, you may develop some serious health symptoms that could end up being the result of mold. That’s why a mold remediation company takes mold removal so seriously. The space affected by mold is isolated and contained during cleaning so the spores won’t spread to other areas of the house, and the remediation team stays suited up in Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) during the process.

For the majority of surfaces in your home, bleach won’t actually get rid of your mold problem. It’s the “iceberg effect.” Visible mold is usually a small percentage of the actual amount of mold growth. Bleach can’t kill mold on porous surfaces like wood, and while tile or fiberglass surfaces can be cleaned with bleach, often the mold has spread far deeper. The reason why mold remediation companies don’t recommend DIY cleanup isn’t that they want to make more money; they know, in their experience, that a mold problem is usually far more invasive than can be seen with the naked eye. Simply cleaning the surfaces can provide false assurances that you got rid of the mold, only to have it come back time and time again.

Sometimes mold remediation is included if the cause of the mold was a “covered peril” like a burst hot water heater or water damage caused by firefighters extinguishing a fire in your house. Gradual water damage - like from a leaking pipe or hose - will often cause mold growth, but your insurance coverage will usually not cover that by claiming that it was caused by poor maintenance or neglect. If your insurance company denies your claim, you should request an inspection from a mold remediation company that can help you document the source of the mold.

If the inspection/assessment process was able to pinpoint the source and cause of the mold growth, once that source is repaired, you can be relatively confident about the success of remediation. Ask if your restoration technician has the IICRC certification for “Applied Microbial Remediation.” You can also request a “post-remediation mold clearance” from a third-party mold inspector to re-test the area for any remaining traces of mold before the area is treated with a sealer or encapsulant to resist future mold growth.
