When you find mold in your home of business, it is very upsetting. Most of us know that mold can be hazardous to our health, and we aren’t sure what to do. Thankfully, you can call on us at Restore Pro. With over 20 years in the business, we have the skill, the experience, and the equipment to make sure that your mold remediation is complete and safe.
Just 24 hours after an area is exposed to moisture, mold can begin to form. It doesn’t take long for it to spread or take over an entire room. If it’s located near air ducts or vents, it can quickly move to other areas of the house as well. Mold can thrive anywhere where there is moisture. It likes dark areas, so the interior of walls and flooring, cabinets, and hidden corners are prime places for it to grow.
Common household cleaners like bleach and vinegar can get rid of visible mold, but it won’t take care of microscopic spores. Our specialists use SPA certified products to kill the mold so it won’t come back. With a detailed inspection, we can determine if that will be sufficient, or if more intensive restoration work will be necessary.
Some molds can be extremely hazardous to your health. People with immune deficiencies, asthma, and a history of allergies are especially vulnerable. If we suspect that your mold may be toxic, we may run tests before beginning work. Safety is always our number one concern.
Before beginning work, we will talk to you and your insurance adjuster to make sure that everyone is on the same page. Our Mold Remediation team has plenty of experience in working with insurance companies and we will work with you to make sure your claim process goes smoothly.
To get rid of mold permanently, you have to discover where the moisture came from and eliminate the source. Mold can’t grow without water. Our team will find any leaks or other sources of water infiltration and make sure that they are addressed.
The affected area will be sealed off to prevent the spread of mold spores. Our team may wear personal protective equipment, or PPE, while working with mold. You might see them in:
- Disposable clothing
- Shoe covers
- Eye protection
- Air filter masks
Moldy materials like flooring or drywall will be hauled away and disposed of. We also inspect your ventilation system to make sure there is no threat of mold spreading to other areas of the property. The affected areas are cleaned thoroughly using EPA approved moldicides. Damaged materials are then repaired or replaced.
It’s important that mold is handled by an experienced professional. A general contractor might not have the experience, knowledge, or equipment to handle mold correctly. Any remnant that isn’t removed will only re-grow into a new colony. They can also risk spreading mold to unaffected parts of the property if they don’t take the right precautions.
