Finding mold in your home can lead to significant property damage and health risks to you and your family. While some types are more dangerous than others, any mold is dangerous as it can lead to breathing problems and may even cause your property to be condemned.
Mold is a serious problem so it’s important to hire an experienced team from Restoration Maintenance who understand the dangers of mold. Immediate mold remediation is necessary when any mold is found in a home or office. Our South Florida team will immediately get to work when we receive your call to effectively remove all traces of mold from your residence or business.
What Are Some Causes of Mold?
Mold can be found in South Florida because we have warm temperatures combined with high humidity. Mold needs a dark spot with food and some type of water to grow. As soon as spores begin to grow, mold can develop quickly.
The kitchen or bathroom are the most common places you may find mold. A leaky pipe or one that drips even just a little bit can provide enough water for mold to grow. This is why water extraction services are so important too.
When you see mold in your home or business, it’s important to act immediately. Here one of our mold remediation specialists will detail the process of what you can expect from our professional mold remediation process.
Steps of Mold Remediation Process
Before any mold remediation can begin, we must first identify the source of the problem. We look for moisture buildup and leaks. We thoroughly inspect all rooms of the home or business to see if mold has spread.
Next, we perform a mold inspection that allows us to determine the mold type and its dangers. This mold is tested, which helps us determine the cause of it and how to best remove it.
The mold remediation process includes removing, cleaning, and disinfecting of homes or businesses with mold. Our team at Restoration Maintenance uses special equipment and materials to ensure that all mold is completely removed safely.
Repair Plumbing System
First, we will make any necessary repairs to your plumbing system, including leaky faucets or pipes. This helps prevent future mold growth.
Isolate Contaminated Area
We will seal off all contaminated areas by closing all doors and windows. Polyethylene sheeting may also be used and sealed with duct tape to keep these areas secluded.
Cleaning and Removal
All mold-contaminated material is removed and discarded to lower any risk of spores dispersed into the air. Proper cleaning with professional cleaning equipment and materials is conducted by our highly-trained team.
After the areas are cleaned, we will disinfect all areas to ensure all mold is gone, and of course, the smell of mold is removed with deodorizers.
All materials are dried to make sure that no moisture remains. We use a combination of fans and dehumidifiers to speed up this process.
Replacement or Rebuilding
In extreme cases, some areas of the home may need to be rebuilt, or some materials replaced and restored. However, this is on a case-by-case basis.
