The development of mold often catches people off guard. It can always be traced back to some form of moisture accumulation or flooding. Each project we complete is unique but we frequently trace back the source of the moisture to leaky roofs, damaged pipes, and backed up sewers or drains. If the moisture isn't removed in a timely manner it will begin to accumulate and create the ideal environment for the growth of mold spores.
If you are like most people we work with you've likely encountered a news story or two regarding the dangers that exist with mold exposure. A number of health concerns have been attributed to long term mold exposure including headaches, asthma attacks, respiratory problems, fatigue, and allergic reactions. If your home has mold it is vital that you hire a professional mold remediation company so that you can eliminate your problem.

The Process of Mold Removal
Mold spores are most likely to be stirred up and go airborne during the removal stage. In order to prevent this from happening you need to hire a professional mold company like us. A variety of containment procedures will be used to prevent further contamination. One example is the use of negative air chambers to create a physical barrier and negative air pressure to prevent the spread of spores. It is also standard procedure to turn off fans and heating and cooling systems. We advise the use of HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Air) vacuums. HEPA vacuums ensure that all affected materials have been properly dried and decontaminated. HEPA vacuums are unique in that they have specialized filters capable of catching miniscule mold particles that would typically pass directly through a normal filter. The amount of mold found as well as the type(s) will determine the exact mold remediation process that we undertake. Antifungal and antimicrobial agents are commonly used to eliminate existing mold colonies while preventing future ones. Depending on the severity of the problem it may be necessary to remove and dispose of items like flooring and drywall. Our team of professionals are dedicated to restoring your property back to its original state prior to the mold infestation. We will thoroughly clean and sanitize your property and belongings. There are a variety of tools and equipment that we have at our disposal to complete your mold remediation to your complete satisfaction. It may be necessary to use professional fogging equipment to deodorize your property and to remove odors effectively. We will begin restoring your property once this stage is complete. During the mold removal process we may have to remove and dispose of items like flooring, drywall, and other building materials. We will do our best to minimize the damage and cost of restoring your property.
