Mold on floor boards

Mold on floor boards

We'd rather dry it out for our customers so it doesn't become a mold problem - this is the optimal scenario for everyone involved! However fully half of our business is helping customers when mold has developed and grown. A lot of times customers, eager for a quick an easy solution, ask us: "Can't you just spray some stuff on it?" To our surprise, some competitors will tell them "Yes we can." It is important to note, however, that the guiding principle of a proper mold remediation is to REMOVE the mold, not kill the mold. "spraying some stuff on it" at best will kill the mold. However dead mold can possess toxic features. Beware of providers who tell you there's a quick an easy solution to mold remediation.

Mold inside the wall

Mold inside the wall

Water leakage caused the dormant mold spores to develop into large mold colonies along this wall. We demolished the lower two feet of the drywall after we sealed this part of the house to prevent the cross contamination of mold spores, fungi particles, and dust.

Fungi and mold naturally occur in our environment. In fact, over 100,000 kinds of fungi have been identified. Fungi produce some very useful results. Even through some forms of mold can add value to our lives , other forms can be harmful. Excessive amounts of mold, different types of mold exposure may present health concerns for some people.  After a day, we verified that the exposed area was back to normal moisture levels, so we then buttoned up the drywall and left the challenge of taping, finishing, and painting the wall to the homeowner as per his request.
