Mold can occur due to a number of different reasons, so solving your mold problem is important. Our mold remediation team will first assesses the mold damage to your home or business in order to determine the best solution for your mold damage.
It’s important to note that mold can not only cause damage to your building but also to your health. Toxic mold exposure within a building can lead to many health problems including internal organ damage or mental impairment.
How to Detect Mold in a Building
The Appearance of Mold
Water Damaged Areas
If your home recently flooded due to heavy rain or a burst pipe, or you notice new water stains and damage, or your roof is leaking, or you know about long-standing puddling of water, your building may be at risk for mold growth. It’s also key to note of any areas on the outside of your building that may appear damp and don’t seem to ever dry up. These examples might be an indicator of water pockets that are feeding the mold.
Allergy Symptoms that Improve
Outside of the Home
Apart from pet allergies, many people experience seasonal allergies due to weather changes. They may experience symptoms such as:
- Itchy and watery eyes
- Scratchy and sore throats
- Nasal congestion
- Sinus headaches
- Skin irritations
- Difficulty breathing
Millions of people suffer from allergies every year, and besides most of these symptoms being unpleasant to deal with, they’re not cause for alarm. However, if you’re experiencing these symptoms and they seem to diminish or go away whenever you leave your house for a few hours or days, this could be a potential sign of a mold problem inside the home. Even if you don’t see or smell the mold, it may be wise it to get your home inspected for mold.
Our Mold Damage Restoration Process
We all know that water damage can lead to mold, as excessive dampness is one of the key factors in mold growth. However, many people don’t realize that fire damage can also lead to mold, as the work to put out fire with water can create future ideal conditions for various types of mold. Mold can even grow in buildings that have not suffered water or fire damage, if there are ideal conditions of dampness and darkness from a nearby water source.
Our IICRC WRT (Water Damage Restoration Technician) certified specialists will conduct a free inspection to identify mold in your home or business, utilizing infrared cameras and moisture meters. If mold is found, we will:
- Contain the areas that have mold before starting the remediation process.
- Insert negative air scrubbing units that will filter the air for mold spores.
- Remove, bag, and dispose of mold-affected materials.
- HEPA vacuum the contained areas.
- Bio-wash the contained areas using an approved antimicrobial.
- Clean all building ducts and HVAC units.
