Spotting mold in your home may worry you, scare you or anger you. Regardless, you never want to come across this fungal growth. The good news is that professional mold remediation companies can detect it, remove it, and make your home mold-free once again.

  • Water sources such as broken pipes or leaky appliances.

A mold removal team will first arrive and evaluate your needs and the extent of the damage. Technicians will note how large of a cleanup area there is and whether mold may be hiding in other areas.

Prevent Spreading
Technicians will contain the fungi before starting mold cleanup. To do this, the team will eliminate any leaks and correct humidity problems. The company will seal off rooms in your home where this is widespread growth.

The crew will wear the proper protective equipment and then tear out any badly damaged materials. Using powerful chemicals, technicians will then remove all traces of mold. It can grow on walls, carpet, furniture, ceiling tiles, and most other surfaces.

Dry and Disinfect
The company will finish by thoroughly drying the affected area using high-powered fans and dehumidifiers. Mold remediation also includes sanitizing all surfaces in your home where mold grew.
You can rest easy knowing professional cleanup technicians know how to eliminate black mold from your house. The team will use a tried and true process and also give you hints on how to avoid mold in the future.
