Mold should be removed the moment you spot it. Whether it has covered a wall, ceiling, or drainage system, we'll use HEPA-filtered vacuums on each surface and wipe them down with an EPA-approved antimicrobial chemical. If a surface retains mold deep in its pores, you should either throw away the structure or, if that's not possible, have us encapsulate it. Our sealant will prevent the mold from spreading.
We're also adept at mold inspections. Not only do we have a trained eye for mold, but we also have mold testing kits that will measure the amount of this fungus in the atmosphere. Our team will go from room to room, even checking vents and ducts, and obtain accurate readings. If we find something that we can't identify, we'll take a sample for analysis.
You may want to request crawl space encapsulation as a preventative measure. Mold is attracted to areas where condensation combines with high humidity, but we'll take away these two conditions by installing a plastic vapor barrier across the walls and floor of your crawl space.
Water Damage Restoration
Our company can take on water damage of all kinds, whether it's caused by a natural disaster or a plumbing leak. We're certified by the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC), and for everyone's safety, our employees comply with EPA and OSHA health regulations.
The mitigation process will start with water removal; our portable pumps will extract any pools of water, and our team will eliminate any seepage. We'll go behind walls and under floors to pinpoint hidden leaks. We'll then dry the interior and move any damaged belongings outside to be dried and sanitized.
Basements are so prone to flooding, and yet there are many times when it can be prevented. We'll recommend a few steps, including basement waterproofing. Our concrete coating will protect your walls from the floodwaters, and you'll even be able to paint over it.
Air Duct Cleaning
Let us enter the attic or crawl space and clean out every inch of your air ducts; the result will be better indoor air quality and a more efficient HVAC system. We also perform dryer vent cleaning, so whether your vent is a foot long or it exits out the roof, we'll remove all the lint inside before it starts a fire.
