We're also available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, for emergencies. You can trust that we'll use EPA-registered antimicrobial chemicals and follow all EPA and OSHA health regulations.
The Mold Inspection
This is an important step if you're not faced with an emergency. With a mold inspection, we can discover just what areas, if any, have a high mold presence. This can include your basement, bathroom, kitchen, dryer vent, and air ducts. Our team can take air samples, examine any discoloration that looks like mold, and then determine what level of mold remediation you'll need. We can often find mold by its smell; black mold in particular has a distinct musty odor.
Should a wall or ceiling be covered in mold, we'll immediately go ahead with mold removal. Note that exposure to mold can lead to respiratory problems, headaches, and even memory loss; black mold can even cause permanent mental disabilities. We'll trap and remove your mold spores with HEPA-filtered vacuums, wipe down the surfaces with our disinfectants, and set up an air scrubber to take care of any spores that have gone airborne. If the mold growth was a result of a leaky pipe or window, we'll recommend a plumbing service (though we won't be able to do it ourselves).
Sometimes, non-porous materials will resist our attempt at mold removal, in which case we advise you to replace the structure in question. If replacing it is out of the question, our team will encapsulate the surface with a special paint or plastic sealant so the mold never leaves.
The point of mold remediation is not to tackle major infestations, like with mold removal, but to keep mold levels steady (mold is always present in the atmosphere). To this end, we can offer several preventative treatments. The simplest is to run a dehumidifier in those areas that are vulnerable to high humidity, such as the basement or crawl space.
We also perform basement waterproofing and crawl space encapsulation; the former involves a concrete sealant that will keep moisture from seeping into your walls, and the latter is where we install a vapor barrier across the walls, ground, and ceiling.
