As part of our mold remediation services, we also provide HVAC cleaning and decontamination. Because air ducts are not monitored as frequently as other areas in the home, mold can easily start to grow in these darkened regions, and spread quickly through the air ducts where they hide. Your heating and cooling system then force these spores into each room. We’ll stop this from happening by cleaning and sanitizing the entire system.
On the way, it can pick up other contaminants and particulate matter, as well as dust and lint. We will clean your HVAC systems to restore your home to healthy air standards, and give you peace of mind that your air quality in the home is as good as it can be.
Our technicians are ready to identify and stop mold from growing in these air ducts and HVAC systems to bring you peace of mind and restore your home and business to a safe environment.
Your home’s crawlspace can easily succumb to mold over the years. When it does, your home’s interior is next. Before that, let us know you’ve got a mold problem. We’ll send our very best to your home to eliminate both the mold and its source.
Crawlspace areas are usually not frequented much by the homeowner, and needless to say are not a high traffic area. We are able to check theses areas for you to determine if any mold spores have started to form in these areas of the home, and remediate the mold for you to remove this hazard from growing in the crawlspace area.
Your laundry room is likely small. It’s an enclosed space, with two large appliances, and a lot of humidity and moisture. It’s the perfect breeding ground for mold. On occasion, check the area. If you spot mold there, give us a call for assistance.
Mold will be extremely happy to hide in areas behind your appliances in the laundry room, near the floor where water may accumulate, splash, or have been an issue in the past. We are able to move your appliances and find any mold in those areas and remove it for good.
Often, we find mold in the bathroom or kitchen because of appliances and plumbing in use in either room. Both are susceptible to mold over the years. At the first sign, give us a call. We’ll send our top mold experts to eradicate your mold problem.
Mold is able to grow in the bathroom and kitchen areas, because these areas are high use in the home and mold will grow slowly behind a fixture if there is a water source. Whether water is constantly dripping in these areas, or just being splashed from time to time, a water resource is the perfect condition for helping mold to start growing in the kitchen or bathroom areas. We will remediate any mold issues in the kitchen or bathroom areas of your home, and restore these areas to mold-free status when we are finished.
Finally, the last portion of mold remediation is taking preventative measures. We need to stop mold from returning to your home in the future. We do so by treating the underlying cause of your mold. If you have a leak, we’ll address it then and there. Mold is unable to sustain growth if it does not have the right conditions for growing. Mold needs oxygen, a water source and an organic matter to feed on. We are able to find sources of mold, fix the problem, and clean up any mold that may be found in the home. Our technicians are able to remove mold and mold spores safely, to prevent human health hazards from making an unsafe condition in your home.
