Want to know what we can do for you
Hiring professionals for mold remediation
Mold can be very difficult for homeowners to deal with. Sometimes, the extent of the mold in question is so vast that the task seems daunting.
What we do
Getting rid of mold might be simple and easy if there is just a bit in your shower, but once it reaches the level that we are talking about, you are going to need help from professionals, such as a property restoration company. It is normally not necessary to test for mold to know that your property has an issue with it (or even to know what type of mold it happens to be) since you will be able to see it and realize that it has to be removed as quickly as possible. The only time that mold testing might make sense is when you are in the process of purchasing a property that has an apparent issue with mold because it might help you to negotiate the final price in your favor. Of course, once you purchase that property, you will definitely need to deal with the mold as soon as you can. One of the first things that come to people’s minds when they are thinking about mold remediation is how much it will cost them. You might think that this type of service will be extremely expensive, but it does not have to be.
How much will mold remediation cost?
As you might expect, the cost of mold removal services will highly depend on how extensive the job happens to be. The more mold there is throughout the property in question, the more work that’s involved in removing it.
What to expect
An experienced and trustworthy mold remediation company should be able to explain precisely what needs to be done and how much it will cost. Keep in mind that professionals who deal with mold removal are highly skilled and trained in order to be able to do so, so you should expect to pay more for a skilled professional than you would for an everyday handyman. Some people start to look for DIY solutions when dealing with mold. Keep in mind that you might waste your time and money by choosing to do that if you do not actually manage to get rid of the mold like professionals certainly would. Plus, a professional company should provide you with a guarantee of a job well done.
Other things to consider
Once you know that you are dealing with mold, hiring professionals is the way to go. Of course, knowing exactly what company to hire when you are dealing with mold might not be as straightforward as hiring a plumber since not too many of your friends or family members will have gone through this situation before. Hiring professionals who can help you with mold remediation does not have to be difficult. Just keep in mind that experience matters!
What to expect from the process of mold removal?
Professionals who deal with mold removal properly know that they should use protective gear at all times for safety. Do not be alarmed when you see them don a high filtration mask and vinyl or neoprene gloves. When these professionals are dealing with mold that requires harsh chemicals to get rid of it, you might even see them in a full protective suit. Another safety measure that might seem a bit extreme to onlookers is that the area that is being worked on will be sealed off with plastic sheeting, but this is necessary so that mold spores do not escape into other parts of the home or commercial property. Some of the equipment that you will see these highly-skilled professionals use include HEPA air scrubbers, HEPA vacuums, commercial-strength dehumidifiers, and more. You certainly wouldn’t have access to this type of equipment or the skill to use it if you went with a DIY solution. Plus, the job of mold remediation goes a bit further than just physically removing the mold since the air still has to be cleaned of airborne mold spores. Professionals will utilize HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Air) air scrubbers and air exchange for this purpose. Bear in mind that it might be necessary to get rid of building materials such as drywall, insulation, and baseboards. These materials are relatively inexpensive to replace and difficult to impossible to restore to their previous uncontaminated condition. Finally, the areas in question will be treated with a sealer to make it water-resistant to help get rid of any odor.
