Mold Remediation

Commercial and Residential Mold Remediation

Mold is a group of microorganisms known as fungi. It forms when the combination of moisture, temperature, and a “food source” such as drywall or another building material come in contact with one another inside a home or commercial building.

Mold damage is the result of untreated or hidden water damage. It often results from a slow leak from a drain or a hidden leak behind cabinets or within walls. If it is left untreated for a while, it makes cleanup more complicated.

The Impact of Mold on Health

If you have discovered mold damage in your home or business, you are not alone. According to Realtime Lab, 45 million buildings in the U.S. have unhealthy levels of mold, and many owners are unaware of the problem because mold is often hidden behind walls, in the ceiling, and under carpets.

It is important to take action when you learn you have mold damage because it can cause significant health problems. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 7 million deaths per year are linked to indoor and outdoor air pollution. This is why home and business owners immediately search for “mold remediation services near me” when they discover mold.

How We Can Help

When you have mold damage in your home or place of business, we can eliminate it so you can get things back to normal as soon as possible. There are two levels of mold remediation service. Level 1 remediation is used for small, isolated areas of mold up to 10 square feet and Level 2 remediation covers areas that are larger than 10 square feet

If the affected area is less than 10 square feet, we simply remove the mold. No containment is needed unless there is an at-risk reason (i,e, school, elderly or asthmatic inhabitants, etc). We decide whether containment is needed on a case-by-case basis.

If the mold damage covers more than 10 square feet, our experienced team contains the area and adheres to these mold remediation removal best practices.

  • Wear Tyvek® suits and respirators.
  • Isolate the contaminated areas.
  • Block air vents.
  • Suppress dust by misting contaminated areas.
  • Repair the water damage that is causing the problem to prevent new mold spores from growing.
  • Remove all wet and mold-damaged porous materials.
  • Double-bag and dispose of all wet and moldy materials in plastic bags that are at least 6 mils thick.
  • Replace all materials that were removed during remediation.
  • Clean all non-porous materials and wood surfaces using a wire brush and wipe down the area with disposable cloths.
  • Inspect all areas to ensure they are free of contamination and debris because no dust and dirt means no mold.
  • Allow leftover moisture to evaporate. We use dehumidifiers to speed up the drying process.
  • If possible, work under negative air pressure and use a negative air machine/HEPA filtration device to change the air in the room.
  • Clean the affected area and egress. For Level 1 mold remediation service, we use a damp cloth or mop and detergent. For Level 2 remediation projects, we vacuum all surfaces with a HEPA vacuum and then clean them with a damp cloth or mop and detergent.

Once we are finished, we do NOT just promise you that we did a good job. An independent Industrial Hygienist or Air Quality Specialist checks our work and takes empirical air samples to verify that the mold is gone and the area is safe.

What to Do if You Discover Mold Damage

Mold exposure can cause serious health problems — particularly for children, the elderly, and people with compromised immune systems. If you discover mold damage in your home or business, here are some steps to take.

  1. Limit access to the area if possible.
  2. Seal cabinets and doors in small areas to prevent cross-contamination.
  3. Do not blow air on the mold as it will cause the spores to circulate in the air and possibly affect other areas.
  4. Do not try to scrape mold as it can cause further contamination.
  5. Do not spray bleach or any other product on mold. Certain products cannot be mixed and will cause dangerous fumes.
  6. Do not seek advice on the Internet or social media sites. Only trust the advice of a qualified mold remediation service provider.
