What is Mold Removal?
When mold growth is discovered it is important to understand that products marketed to consumers are unlikely to be effective enough to provide a long-term solution. Mold removal projects are best left to a mold removal company.
What is Mold Remediation?
When performed by a trained professional, mold remediation is the most successful way to eliminate mold from your property and prevent future mold infestations.
What is an Indoor Air Quality Assessment?
An Indoor Air Quality Assessment includes measurements for carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, temperature, and relative humidity. Moisture levels in various building materials are also determined.
What is a Mold Assessment?
A mold assessment is conducted to determine if microbial growth is present which includes a visual assessment for the presence of mold and the collection of air and swab samples to determine the type and amount of mold.
What is Mold?
Mold can be found almost anywhere; it can grow on any organic substance, as long as moisture and oxygen are present.
What is Hidden Mold?
In certain cases, indoor mold growth may not be apparent; mold spores can be present in the air, yet remain invisible.
Why is Having a Mold Inspection Important?
With a mold inspection, you will receive a full investigative report, along with certified laboratory results stating that your property is free from biological growth and contaminants. It is far more cost-effective to take preventative measures today rather than dealing with a mold infestation.
What is Indoor Air Quality?
Our new homes today are more airtight than ever. This also means that they will retain moisture inside the house, inside the walls, and inside the air ducts.
What is Water Damage?
Water damage emergencies can happen with little or no warning. A storm hits, drain plugs and overflows, or a pipe bursts and floods your property. The ensuing mess needs to be handled quickly and properly to avoid costly repairs. However, it is important to keep some things in mind when dealing with the aftermath of water damage.
What is Water Mitigation?
Water mitigation is the fact of having a surface (floor, wall, ceiling, ...) soaked in water to lead to the weakening of the structure or development of mold.
How Does Insurance Cover Water Losses?
When water damage is sudden or accidental, chances are good that the property owner is covered by his or her standard home insurance policy. Some coverage will be included with basic policies, while other sources of damage will require endorsements. It largely depends on the type of home that is being insured.
