Mold removal Kansas City MO
AdvantaClean knows that mold in all its forms, from aspergillus to black mold, is a danger to homes and businesses across Kansas City, MO, which is why we offer top-quality mold removal. It's important to remember that, while mold always remains in the atmosphere, it can be controlled so that it doesn't harm your health. Our service can be broken down into three stages: Mold Inspection, Mold removal, Mold Remediation.
The Mold Inspection
We'll inspect your property if you suspect that mold is present. By taking air samples, we can determine the concentration of this fungus in every room; we'll even check your air vents because sometimes water can seep in through leaks and dampen the insulation. If there's discoloration in a structure - as you'll often find with black mold - we'll perform an examination. Another simple way we can detect mold, especially black mold, is by sniffing for a musty odor. Only if we find a major infestation will we recommend mold removal.
As a member of the Mold Inspection Consulting and Remediation Organization (MICRO), we carry the right equipment and tools for this job. Mold removal should always be done as soon as possible, and you'll be pleased to know that we're available 24/7 to answer emergency calls.
We'll wear respirators and other protective gear upon entering the infested area. Whether mold is on a wall, a ceiling, or around a drainage system, we'll get to work vacuuming the mold spores. Our vacuums are fitted with HEPA filters, which are certified to trap and remove this fungus. We'll then damp wipe the surfaces with an EPA-registered disinfectant.
Sometimes, mold removal can be difficult with non-porous materials, in which case we can encapsulate these structures. We'll coat them with a sealant that will keep the leftover mold from spreading. If a structure can be replaced, that might be the better option.
Several treatments fall under mold remediation, which is aimed at bringing mold levels back to a safe balance. Encapsulation, mentioned above, is one option, but it should never be considered as a stand-alone treatment. We'll most likely supplement it with an air scrubber, a machine that will run continuously to sanitize your air.
Mold remediation also covers preventative services. For example, we can install a vapor barrier in your crawl space to prevent vapor rise; any moisture that builds up won't have a chance to condense. We can also waterproof your basement to prevent the need for mold removal later on. There are waterproofing paints out there that might tempt you to plan a DIY project, but these can crack and peel. We offer concrete sealants.
