Mold Damage: How We'll Help
With the introduction of a water source, any home or business can quickly become infested with mold. The most common culprits: roof and plumbing leaks. Mold can spread throughout a property in as little as 48 to 72 hours, causing allergens and irritants that have the potential to cause other health issues.
Every mold damage scenario is different and requires its own solution, but the general process stays the same. Let’s take a look at the steps:
- Call us! 806-780-6311
The mold cleanup and restoration process begins with giving us a phone call. From there, we’ll talk with you and determine the best course of action.
- Inspection and Assessment
Once we arrive, we’ll carefully inspect the property for signs of mold. We have various technologies to detect mold and hidden water sources.
- Mold Containment
We will use various containment procedures to prevent the spread of mold. We’ll use negative air chambers to isolate the contaminated area with physical barriers and negative air pressure to keep the mold spores from spreading during cleanup. We will turn off all heating and cooling systems to prevent further spreading of the mold.
- Air Filtration
With our special filtration equipment, we can capture microscopic mold spores and remove them from the air.
- Mold Removal
The remediation process depends on the amount of mold growth and the types of surfaces the mold has contaminated. We will use antifungal and antimicrobial treatments to eliminate mold colonies.
We can clean your furniture, decorative items, curtains, clothes, and other restorable items that the mold contaminated. We are trained to also remove odors and deodorize your items.
