Let’s get one thing out quickly, almost every home has some mold type. This is no reason to panic; in our toilets, our kitchens, we see mold every day, and these growths are typically disposed of using commercially available mod removal agents. That being said, if you find a mold growth covering more than four or five square feet, then you have a significant mold problem that could theoretically affect anyone’s immune systems.
These bigger problems need a professional, knowledgeable mold remediation company, someone who knows their mold. Mold remediation is often used in residential and commercial projects, government buildings, and residential complexes (where more than one home is at risk).
Xpert Restoration • Mold Specialists
As mold problems need specialized treatment, Xpert Restoration is pleased to offer mold remediation as one of our many restore services. We use the latest restoration techniques to remove the mold while maintaining the site’s integrity and removing the potential for future mold growth. Residential properties offer the same specialized care as a large-scale company. Your family’s health is our primary objective.
Mold remediation is different from other forms of reconstruction, as the affected area must be preserved to avoid the risk of proliferation. Due to the size and permeation of some mold growths, mold source location may be problematic. Mold is often found in HVAC systems, under carpets or floors, inside cracks in concrete or cinder blocks, on porous wood surfaces, and in older books and magazines.
Mold removal also requires taking some precautions to protect the health of the contractor and anyone else who may be working / living in the building. Mold spreads very quickly, often through a simple touch. Touching mold will release hundreds of thousands of mold spores into the air, floating (and getting caught in the ventilation system of the property) and very likely spawning additional growth in other areas of the house.
Prevent Further Contamination
For mold discovery, health professionals should be notified, and our Xpert Restoration technicians can work with them to limit any potential physical contamination. Some property parts may be quarantined until contamination threat has passed.
We will use the most up-to-date and advanced mold removal and remediation equipment to work on your home or business, take air quality tests, contain the mold in one area, use filtration equipment to remove contaminated air, bring in fresh air, remove contaminated materials for thorough cleaning and restore the location to its original condition.
Of course, no mold remediation job is complete until steps are taken to ensure the mold does not return. The mold source, usually some form of water damage, will need to be addressed and repaired, the affected area dried out, cleaned, disinfected and sanitized, and then improvements to both ventilation and relative humidity levels to make the environment inhospitable for mold. Any company that can’t provide a plan to prevent future mold growths isn’t one you should even consider hiring.
While not all molds pose physical threats, it is always best to be vigilant and have any mold growth removed from home in a timely and efficient manner. It makes your home fun to live in, and will dramatically improve your chances of resale if you ever want to sell it. Give you the opportunity to get rid of your mold problem today.
