Our mold removal services offer proven methods for assisting people with allergies, asthma, and immune-suppressed systems, as well as chemotherapy patients, small children, and senior citizens.

How does our process work? First our experts determine the extent of the loss, the cause of the loss, and a cost estimate for mold removal. Once the estimate is accepted, work can begin quickly.
Second, our mold removal specialists construct barriers to prevent the spread of mold spores and mycelial fragments to unaffected areas. These contained areas are then placed under negative pressurization with HEPA filtration to remove spores that become airborne during the remediation process. Contents from affected areas are usually sealed and removed for cleaning. The company inventories and records all property. Areas with heavy mold growth are cleaned, sanded, HEPA vacuumed, or removed. After the moisture source has been eliminated and all mold growth removal has occurred, we recalculate your property to ensure that the remediation process was successful. Our goal is to leave your property free of any moldy smells or visible growth.

What Is Mold Really?

Mold is classified as a kind of fungi. Some fungi is harmless, like types of mushrooms that are safe to eat. However, others can cause serious issues or even cause death. There are hundreds of types of mold found both indoors and outdoors. It most often grows in damp, dark areas, which is why it’s commonly seen in basements, attics, cellars, crawlspaces, bathrooms, etc. Mold comes in an array of colors, most commonly seen as black. Mold typically grows and continues to grow due to a buildup of moisture that isn’t remedied, which is why it’s essential to handle flooding and leaks quickly and thoroughly to avoid a much trickier problem.
