Mold Removal & Remediation
Many times, homeowners underestimate the severity of mold in their homes and the degree of difficulty of remediation of the mold. Simply cleaning with bleach and water will not kill mold. Mold Remediation requires removing the mold carefully and correctly to eliminate the spread of the spores so that other rooms or locations around the problematic areas are not exposed. Often times this requires containing the moldy materials and removing them from the structure.
Mold Remediation is best performed by trained professionals who understand the processes and procedures for proper mold removal.
When excessive moisture accumulates in buildings or on materials, mold growth will often occur, especially if the moisture problem remains undiscovered. It is impossible to eliminate all mold and mold spores in the indoor environment; but, mold growth can be controlled indoors by controlling moisture.
Since mold requires water to grow, it is important to prevent any and all moisture problems in buildings. Moisture problems may include roof leaks, landscaping or gutters that direct water into or under the building and unvented appliances.
In some cases, indoor mold growth may not be very obvious. It is possible that mold could be growing on various hidden surfaces, such as the back of dry wall, wallpaper, or paneling, ceiling tiles, under carpets and pads and other areas.

Do you really need a Mold Inspection & Removal?
Mold is one of those silent problems that can be very deadly to you and your family if it is not taken care of. Unfortunately, mold often is hidden in the walls or in places that you’re not accustomed to looking and you may not realize that it’s even a problem.
Mold can release airborne spores, mycotoxins, that when breathed in, can cause severe headaches, allergies, asthma, rashes and other insidious health problems. If people in your home are getting sick and you have ruled out the other potential causes, then you should check the entire home for mold.
- If you see mold- you don’t need testing to know its there.
- If no one is having mold allergies and health complications-you probably don’t need a mold test.
