The first step to getting rid of black mold is finding the moisture source. Skipping this step will guarantee that you will have mold growing back and will have to deal with your mold problem once again. Finding the source could mean that you have a leaky pipe behind your shower wall or possibly a leaky roof. Our technicians will find the water or moisture source so that we can provide you a solution to rid you of your mold situation.
The second step is the mold remediation process. This includes setting up containment to prevent cross-contamination and spreading mold spores to other areas of your home or business, cleaning the mold, setting HEPA air scrubbers to clean the air, HEPA vacuuming, and drying and treating the area.
People who are sensitive to molds, those who have environmental allergies or suppressed immune systems, may experience “nasal stuffiness, throat irritation, coughing or wheezing, eye irritation, or, in some cases, skin irritation,” according to theCenters for Disease Control and Prevention. And though people without sensitivity to molds and mildews may experience no health problems, it’s still a best to proceed by keeping mold and mildew contained to avoid future issues from evolving.
