REMOVE ANY MOLD FROM YOUR PROPERTY TODAY

Molds are a type of fungi that can grow both indoors and outdoors. We know that it grows best in damp, warm, or humid conditions. Unfortunately, these conditions worsen as water damage occurs in your building. Mold begins sprouting in as little as 24 hours after damp conditions begin. Even after water removal, mold spores can survive in dry conditions. We provide mold cleanup services that not only remove any visible mold, but also stop its growth to ensure your property is safe.

 

Many people don’t realize that mold exposure can affect your health. Mold damage can cause severe allergic reactions, jolt asthma, and promote other respiratory issues.
Mold problems can turn your personal belongings into porous materials. Removing mold is not the only thing that needs to be done in these situations.

 

The best way to control indoor mold growth is to control any moisture inside the building. We provide mold cleanup services that will remove any visible mold, but that will also ensure growth is stopped. We use the proper tools and certified HEPA vacuums for certified removal and effective solutions.

WHAT HAPPENS DURING THE MOLD REMOVAL PROCESS?

Professional mold remediation is necessary because it is a complex process that requires professional tools alongside expert technicians. Mold is dangerous to handle, and should not be exposed to individuals who are not properly equipped and covered. 

 

Below are the steps we take to resolve your mold issues for good. 

 

  1. Locate the source of the moisture 
Mold requires moisture to grow. We locate the source of the moisture to recommend remedies to stop the water from harming your building. Oftentimes, mold issues occur in a naturally damp environment, like showers or janitorial closets. These areas may require additional ventilation. 

 

  1. Isolate the mold from other areas 
Mold spores spread quickly and easily. Any airflow across affected moldy surfaces can spread mold spores around the building and worsen conditions. We avoid cross-contamination of affected areas by isolating the mold before we begin cleaning. 

 

  1. Remove Absorbent Materials
Unfortunately, there are certain items that cannot be salvaged by deep cleaning. Porous items like furniture or carpet have to be removed completely. These items will most likely need to be thrown out in order to stop the problem from reoccurring. 

 

  1. Deep Clean the Area 
Any remaining materials that are not porous will be deep cleaned using professional tools and products. All visible traces of mold will be removed to clean the surfaces correctly. We utilize an antimicrobial chemical to clean any remaining mold and stains. We finish the surface with a sealer to make the treated areas more resistant to water damage and to help with lingering odor control.

 

  1. Ensure the area is dry 
Once everything is cleaned and sealed, we ensure the area is dry before finalizing the project. A thorough drying process is required to complete mold remediation. We use a conjunction of industrial fans, dehumidifiers, and moisture maps to provide an accurate reading as to whether the materials are fully dry.

    PRECAUTIONS TO TAKE

    AFTER FINALIZING THE PROJECT:

    We recommend that you fulfill the following duties after we take care of your property. This is simply to ensure that the mold does not return. We recommend you work these into your daily routine!

     

    • Reduce the humidity to lessen mold growth by venting any areas that create moisture. This includes bathrooms, dryers, laundry rooms, basements, kitchen while cooking, etc. This can be as simple as using fans within these areas.
    • Utilize air conditioning and de-humidifiers in any damp area or room
    • Ensure that all damp materials are dry within 24-48 hours to prevent mold from sprouting
    • If you see any mold, clean it off with water and light detergent. Allow the surface to dry completely. Highly absorbent materials may have to be removed completely (ceiling tiles, floor tiles, couches, etc.)
    • Provide your building with proper insulation. This will prevent any condensation from forming. This will ensure that colder surfaces are in the green (windows, pipes, walls, roofing, floors, etc.)
    • Avoid installing carpets in humid areas of your building. Or in any areas that will be affected by water and its condensation properties (basements, near leaks, by the door, etc).
    • Be vigilant. Molds can be found almost anywhere and can grow on virtually any substance. Some molds can even grow on wood, paper, carpet, and foods.

    FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

    Why is mold considered hazardous?

    Mold can grow in as little as 48 hours after water damage. It is considered a “silent killer” because it can go undetected for years. It weakens the air quality and can lead to serious respiratory issues. Other common side effects of mold exposure are, irritated skin, headaches, allergic reactions, asthma, and more.

    How do you get rid of mold permanently?

    We use moisture mapping to detect any hidden moist areas in the building. Unfortunately, without some form of infrared technology, mold can go undetected for years. We recommend hiring a professional team that specializes in mold remediation.

    How long does the mold removal process take?

    The mold remediation process can take a few days. It depends on how much mold there is, where it’s growing, and what material it’s growing on. Our project manager will assess the situation and provide a timeline for your records.
