If you’ve noticed black mold in your home don’t panic, pick up the phone and give us a call so we can get you the help that you need.
What Are Some Common Signs That Your Home Has A Mold Problem?
When a home has mold in it the mold is often hard to spot, so homeowners could have a problem for some time and not even realize it. The most obvious sign that you have a mold problem is if you see mold growing in your home. Mold often grows in cool, dark, damp places, but if it starts to spread it could grow in areas that are more obvious to you. If you notice a musty odor in your home or see signs of moisture, it’s best to assume that you have a mold problem until we can inspect your home for you.
Is Mold Really Bad For Your Health?
Most people have probably heard that black mold is bad for your health, but is there really any truth to that? Actually, there is. Black mold isn’t good for anyone to breathe in, but for people with breathing problems or a compromised immune system, it can have a major negative impact on their health. Mold allergies are common and can lead to breathing problems, and when you have breathing problems those can quickly escalate into more serious health issues. The bottom line is that if you have any reason to suspect that there’s mold in your home, you need to call us to do an inspection, and if need be, remove it as soon as possible.
How We Handle A Mold Removal Project
The first thing that we’ll do if you call us with concerns about a mold problem is to do a full inspection. Anyone can walk around a building and quickly look around, but we take things a bit further. We inspect hard to reach places that are difficult for the average person to access. We also know places in homes where mold tends to grow, this insight lets us find mold when most people wouldn’t even know that it’s there. What do we do if we find mold in your home?
The first thing we do after a mold inspection is to try to isolate the part of your home that has mold in it. We understand that the last thing that you want to have to deal with is finding a place or you and your family to live while we remove the mold in your home. In many cases, we can close off the ventilation to a room, seal it, and also use exhaust fans to ensure that the mold remains contained while we remove it. If we feel that the mold has spread too far, we’ll let you know because the health of you and your family is what we are most concerned with.
We’ll remove any materials that cannot be cleaned. There are times when the material in a home cannot be salvaged. This most often happens when dealing with porous materials such as drywall, carpet, and insulation.
We’ll then locate the source of the moisture that caused the mold problem because we don’t see the point in fixing the problem unless we fix was caused the problem in the first place. If we aren’t equipped to repair the problem then we’ll recommend a contractor that you could work with.
The next step is to thoroughly clean the area that has mold in it. We use a powerful cleanser that removes all traces of the mold and also kills the mold spores that are present.
The final step in the process is to restore your home to its former glory. After we’ve removed and disposed of any mold-covered materials that couldn’t be cleaned, and cleaned the rest, our contractors will get to work repairing the damage. Our goal is to leave your home in better condition than it was before the mold problem arose.
