Why Hire a Professional Mold Remediation Company in Florida?

mold remediation
Mold is a fungus that thrives in damp and dark places and poses health risks to building occupants. It usually stems from a recent water damage event, such as a broken pipe, a roof leak, or basement seepage. In as little as 24 to 48 hours, mold can develop; if not removed properly, it proceeds to destroy surrounding building materials such as wood or drywall and cause health threats.

Do-it-yourself mold removal can be tempting, but mold remediation is a job that is best done by professionals, such as the team of ServiceMaster by Wright. Here are some reasons why you need to call the experts when mold infests your home or commercial building.  

What is Mold Remediation?

1. When it Comes to Mold, there is Often More than What Meets the Eye
  • If there is visible mold on the wall, you should know that there’s a good chance there is mold that you can’t see—on the other side of the wall.
  • Mold thrives in wet, damp environments. 
  • Trapped moisture inside walls create the perfect environment for mold growth.
  • By the time you see it on the exterior of a wall, it may already be a very serious problem.
2. Mold Can Be Dangerous
  • Mold poses health hazards to humans and animals. 
  • A species of mold, Stachybotrys chartarum, is toxic and can endanger the health of those exposed to it. It is also called black mold
  • Exposure to toxic black mold and its spores can cause health problems, ranging from eye, nose, and throat irritation to headaches. It is potentially harmful to remove it without proper knowledge and equipment, which is why it’s better to leave it to the experts. 
3. Mold Grows in Damp and Humid Conditions
  • Mold thrives in areas with excessive humidity and dampness.
  • Mold often grows after a recent water damage event.
4. Mold Remediation Must be Done Completely
  • A do-it-yourself cleanup performed on a mold-infested area is ineffective. Chemicals may not be enough, since mold spores can still be circulating in the air. The complete containment and removal of mold is the recommended way to safely deal with it.
5. Mold Remediation Requires Professional Involvement

It is unadvisable to perform a do-it-yourself mold project. Professional mold removal companies, such as ServiceMaster by Wright, follow a thorough process to remove mold, including: 
  • Mold Inspection – We will locate the source of both visible and hidden mold.
  • Isolation and Containment – We will utilize a variety of containment strategies including infrared detection technology, physical barriers and anti-microbial agents to protect your home from future growth
  • Air Filtration – ServiceMaster by Wright uses HEPA filtration, negative air machines, plastic sheeting and other techniques to contain the area.
  • Mold Removal
  • Disposing of Affected Materials
  • Cleaning Content and Sanitizing – We will use a variety of techniques and professional-grade products that clean thoroughly without affecting the material’s integrity.
  • Repairs 

What to Consider When Hiring Professional Help

  • Experience is very important.  
  • A company that has been in the business for more than 10 years will be prepared for any situation and will know how to best handle the job.
  • Sometimes it is necessary to have your HVAC air ducts professionally cleaned since air ducts can collect dust and mold spores.  
  • Hiring a mold professional doesn’t have to be as confusing as you may think and the good ones won’t push unnecessary testing.
  • Professionals have reasonable pricing, are able to articulate the work in detail and have the training, skill and equipment.

Choosing a Professional Mold Remediation Specialist Company

1. Saves Costly Maintenance Expense
  • House maintenance budget may help with mold expenses, but still, a mold infestation not treated from the beginning can be dangerous and costly.
2. Proper Mold Checkup
  • If from the start you called up the mold remediation experts, you will be assured to receive a proper mold evaluation.
3. Specialized Knowledge and Training
4. Tools and Equipment
  • Mold remediation experts are equipped with the right tools and equipment to eliminate mold.     
 5. Proper Mold Treatment
  • Systematic steps in treating molds. The ECRS process for mold remediation involves identifying the mold, controlling humidity, and removing the mold.
 6. Saves Time and Effort
  • The remediation experts can do the job quickly and more efficiently.   
 7. Keeps Family Safe and Healthy
  • Professional remediation specialists use protective gear and equipment during mold treatment.

Ask the Right Questions

  • What kind of warranty do you offer?
  • Is your company licensed and insured?
  • Are your staff trained and highly experienced?
  • What are your certifications?
