Professional Mold Remediation Done Right
Mold exists all around us, but when certain areas in your home or office remain damp for extended periods of time, it creates the perfect environment for active mold growth. Did you know that it only takes 24 hours for mold to start growing after experiencing water damage?
Mold can be an invisible intruder – you might not spot the first blossoming of mold – but it’s only a matter of time before you’ll notice a colony of white, greenish, blueish, or even black mold creeping towards you (Gross, yes, we know!). And like icebergs, what you see might just be the tip of a large mold infestation looming beneath your surfaces.
Naturally, our first instinct is to clean it up. But trying to get rid of mold damage in a DIY fashion can sometimes cause the spores to spread and cross-contaminate other areas instead. It is also a health risk if you do not undertake the correct steps or use the protective equipment needed to protect yourself and your family from exposure.
When you start to look for a company to take care of the problem, you might come across many different terms which can sound confusing. Mold removal, mold remediation, mold mitigation, mold abatement – Are they the same thing? And which one do you need?

Mold Removal Vs Mold Remediation?
All these terms are commonly used interchangeably, and they all involve the elimination of the mold growth that spurred you to take action in the first place.
The biggest difference between these terms is whether or not this process involves going right down to its source (or sources!) – and eradicating them completely.
Mold removal (also mold cleanup) is most commonly used to refer to a one-time removal of mold, while the rest of the terms usually point at some sort of strategy that also removes its source.
If you’ve never had mold issues before, but are now experiencing minor mold growth, it’s possible that a one-off mold removal service can eliminate your problem entirely. However, if you’re experiencing a recurrence of mold growth, then mold remediation services are probably necessary to combat and stomp out your mold problems once and for all.
Because exposure to toxic mold can cause not only respiratory problems and allergic reactions, but also neurological problems and even death, you should never risk prolonged exposure to mold in your home or office. The longer you wait to tackle your mold problem, the more damage it will cause, and the greater the risk of health issues to your family. Professional mold remediation should be your immediate priority.
Our Mold Remediation Process
Our mold remediation specialists will conduct a careful inspection of your property to identify the type of mold damage, its source or various sources, before formulating the best mold remediation work plan for your situation.
Mold spores can spread widely if not contained. To prevent further contamination and the risk of mold growing in another area of your home, our first step in mold remediation is to confine the contaminated areas.
Whatever mold problem you are dealing with will be completely eliminated, and all exposed surfaces will be cleaned. We will also utilize HEPA filters and air scrubbers to ensure that the indoor air quality in your home is safe and that no lingering toxic mold spores will take root elsewhere in your home.
When it comes to all the areas affected by the mold problem, chances are that the mold spores might have already permeated through porous surfaces and may be lodged deep within the material. In such cases, disposal and/or replacement of the contaminated materials will be necessary, and this may involve professional restoration, repair, or reconstruction work.
A deep cleaning process using advanced equipment will clean all surfaces including floors, walls, ceilings, windows, furniture as well as soft furnishings like curtains and carpets. We will also inspect your HVAC systems and clean it if it is contaminated. We will also apply antimicrobial treatments to disinfect and deodorize your home or office.
After a thorough inspection declares your home all safe, this step in the mold remediation process sometimes sets it apart from mold mitigation or mold abatement, as it takes it a step further to prevent mold regrowth in the future. To do so we work closely with homeowners and business owners and share with them customized recommendations specifically for their property.
