We offer cost-effective strategies for remediation that cause the least disruption possible to your daily life.
What to Expect During a Mold Inspection
When AdvantaClean of Norcross and Buford arrives, expect an opportunity to share your concerns about potential mildew and mold growth. Mention if susceptible family members or employees experience increased adverse eye, skin, or respiratory symptoms associated with moldy substances and their mycotoxins; we take these complaints seriously. No one knows a home or business space better than the owner or manager. Your description of visible mold organisms, softening, staining, or other changes on surfaces and increasingly musty-smelling areas is invaluable to our technicians. Tell us about previous water damage, periodic leaks, or unusually humid conditions that can underlie spores' moisture absorption, followed by the rapid multiplication of organisms. Two-way communication is essential. Your observations help pinpoint places on your premises to start our investigation. We will take it from there.
How Do Experts Inspect for Mold Growth?
After gathering information from you, our technicians conduct a thorough visual review of your building. We seek sightings of the
colonies, and we are familiar with the countless varieties and colors of fungi that can invade building interiors. As we do a walkthrough of your premises, the following are indispensable:
A good flashlight
Step-stools or ladders to peer into otherwise inaccessible areas
Tools to remove vents or grates to get a view inside restricted spaces such as HVAC systems--we can do a more thorough and deeper air duct inspection if indicated
Moisture detection devices as the organisms require water to grow and thrive--water that migrates away from a spill or leak invites the colonies to grow far from the initial damage
Is Mold Testing Necessary?
AdvantaClean of Norcross and Buford can contact mold testing resources from independent companies for specific scenarios. For example, imagine we cannot visually locate a significantly sized colony despite nasty smelling air or severe health effects among your home or business's occupants. Air testing by an IH Industrial Hygienist can confirm the presence and intensity of the unwanted activity. These primitive organisms need only moisture and oxygen to grow and spread, making building cavities convenient "nurseries" for their proliferation. We can then use limited demolition to find the hiding places of the infestation. Generally speaking, testing only to determine a particular species of fungus is unnecessary unless a healthcare practitioner wants to know for treatment purposes if Stachybotrys chartarum, the often discussed "black" version, is present.
Remediation After Testing and Inspection
Our team mastered training to find and remediate moldy growth and damage from the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) and the National Organization of Remediators and Mold Inspectors (NORMI). Moisture management is fundamental to sustainable remediation. Our experience in water damage restoration is on-point to help Johns Creek residents and business owners to prevent the conditions that support fungal growth.
