Mold and mildew outbreaks can be difficult to contain and if left untreated, can cause property loss, structural damage, and a wide variety of serious health conditions and diseases. Mold can be inhaled, ingested with food, and even absorbed through the skin. To protect you, your loved ones, and your animals, it is important to take action immediately when you see, smell, or suspect mold anywhere in your home.
Mold and mildew growth results from high humidity levels, elevated moisture levels, or the failure of proper drying following water intrusion. One of the biggest problems with mold is that it will often go unnoticed for a long period of time due to growing mostly in hidden, unseen areas of the house. Some of these areas include under carpet, behind wallpaper and drywall, in dark closets, enclosed laundry rooms, the top of ceiling tiles, under the kitchen or bathroom sink, behind the shower wall, and in upholstery.
Our IICRC-certified technicians are experts in getting mold removal and remediation done thoroughly and efficiently. We are committed to keeping your family and your home a safe environment to be in.
After an immediate phone assessment of your emergency, our team will be dispatched and on-site within 4 hours. Our technicians will perform extensive mold testing and identify all the sources of mold growth in and around your house. Once fully evaluated and documented, the technicians will then develop a remediation plan with you and your insurance company, and then begin the process of removal of mold growth from all identified sources in your home. Any contents that are in the affected areas will also be documented, removed, cleaned and returned to your house after the mold restoration process is complete.
Our mold remediation process is done by using industrial grade dehumidifiers, thermal imaging technology, HEPA vacuuming, water extractors, air movers, and testing/cleaning air systems to evaluate and stabilize the environment’s moisture levels.
