The Homestar Group professional will safely clean up the mold and discover the origin of the moisture that allowed it to grow. By removing this source of moisture, the mold will be suppressed and not reoccur, allowing your customer to return to the building safely.
It is important to have a professional remediate for mold for several reasons. A professional will know where to look for hidden mold, as in HVAC ducts and behind vinyl wallpaper. The professional can also identify especially toxic forms of mold and use appropriate personal protective equipment.
Your Homestar professional will also use the appropriate cleanup method for each category of material. These methods include, wet vacuuming, chemical washing, HEPA vacuuming, and removing and replacing materials that are too damaged to clean. He will also choose the best containment plan for keeping the mold from spreading during remediation so that the mold is not spread during cleaning.
Finding the cause of the moisture is imperative to keep the mold from coming back. The Homestar Group professional will check for roof leaks, unvented appliances, poorly graded landscaping, cracks in the foundation, slow leaks in plumbing fixtures and even high humidity. Any of these can cause a rise in mold spores throughout a building. Your professional can repair any of these defects.
Eliminating excess mold correctly the first time will allow your customers to return to their building without the worry of allergic reactions, asthma attacks, opportunistic infections, or other health risks.
