With the first suspicion of a mold problem, a call to certified restoration technicians must be made, as mold can colonize within a 24-hour period. Our restoration technicians have the skills and training necessary to remediate mold from your home or business. Unchecked, mold will continue to grow at an astounding pace, eventually affecting the health of your building’s occupants and the integrity of the structure itself.
The first step in mold abatement is identifying the source – moisture. Without knowing and addressing the source of the mold growth, it will return. Before beginning the remediation process, it may be necessary to establish a containment area with negative pressure to prevent the spores from traveling to unaffected areas. Mold on porous material must be removed, as simply killing the mold is not enough. Even dead mold spores can continue to affect the health of humans and pets. To assist in the prevention of future mold growth, the effected area, especially non-porous materials, will be treated with an anti-microbial agent.
