What causes mold to grow in your home? Water from a roof leak, a plumbing issue or flooding are the most likely culprits. Surfaces that remain damp allow mold to grow within 24 – 48 hours, so stopping the spread of mold before it damages you home or health is imperative. How do you know you have mold? Check for discolored areas on walls or ceilings, a musty odor or a dampness in the air. If you find evidence of mold, contact A&A Restoration Services for the most comprehensive mold remediation in Florida.
Because mold spores exist everywhere — indoors and outdoors — it isn’t possible to remove all mold. The goal of professional mold remediation services is to reduce excessive mold back to its natural level, which is why we refer to this service as mold remediation or restoration instead of mold removal. A company that claims to remove mold typically cleans only surfaces, allowing mold that has taken root elsewhere to grow back and infest your home. A thorough mold restoration job includes cleaning the air as well as locating and addressing areas of moisture, sources of water damage and high-humidity locations that encourage mold growth.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) there is a severe danger to long term exposure to mold as it has a potential to cause health problems.
Mold Damage Remediation Services
Our team has the knowledge, skills and experience to perform a thorough mold remediation process to ensure your home’s safety and protect your family’s health.
Inspection. A&A Restoration technicians check your property for evidence of mold, even looking in areas that are not readily visible. Samples are taken for lab testing, allowing us to determine the species of mold growing in your home.
Mold Control. The first step in mold remediation is to prevent its spread. We begin by turning off fans and the heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system. Before removing the existing mold, we install a negative air chamber and establish physical boundaries to keep the mold in a single area.
Air Filtration. Using a HEPA filter and strong vacuums, we “scrub” the air to eliminate contaminants, remove mold spores and prevent regrowth. The purpose of this step is to return the mold level to its naturally occurring outdoor level.
Cleaning. A&A Restoration utilizes special wet and dry techniques, foams and immersions to clean mold-infested personal items such as clothing, curtains and furniture. Foggers are brought in to remove any lingering odors. Plus, our technicians properly remove and dispose of infested materials that cannot be cleaned such as mold-infested carpeting, drywall and wallpaper.
Building Restoration. We work until there are no traces of mold remaining, and your home has been restored to its previous condition. Depending on the extent of damage caused by your home’s mold infestation problem, some structural materials may require replacement. Damaged drywall panels, wallpaper and carpeting sections are removed and replaced with new ones. In a worst-case scenario, you may need to rebuild a room or part of your home.
