D id you know that exposure to mold can be detrimental to your health, and can exacerbate respiratory problems for people with asthma?
Its important to hire a professional mold removal service with the proper training and knowledge. It takes less than 48 hours for mold to settle in, and once the spores have spread, the removal, cleanup and remediation process is extremely important to prevent the growth from returning.
Many over-the-counter methods such as bleach or mold sealant are not enough for certain growths, if moisture has absorbed into a porous surface such as dry wall, there is a chance the mold growth will be out of site until it has grown outside the wall coverage.
Bleach can have adverse affects and actually cause the mold growth to spread, we don't advise spraying bleach onto a growth, nor do we advise using a mold paint sealant. These methods may not kill or remove mold and the negative side affects associated.
The most common misunderstanding behind mold is that it can merely be cleaned and the growth is gone. In some cases this may be ok if it is only on the surface, however it all depends on the amount of moisture in the affected area. If you have recently experienced water damage, there is a good chance you have a mold growth and are in need of a professional mold removal service.
Our mold specialists are trained and equipped with the proper tools to show you how much moisture is actually in the affected area.

Once we have established the affected area we can then provide you with our best practices and how our team will remediate the mold growth.
