  • Mold remediation is the complete removal and mold spores from contaminated areas or materials. If correctly performed, mold remediation will also prevent mold from growing back or from spreading to non-contaminated areas. This is why it is crucial to use experienced mold remediation professionals. Competent mold remediation services give you practical and long-lasting protection against mold. Mold remediation experts will identify the source of the mold growth, remove all mold (including dead mold), and correctly dispose of all contaminated materials.

    • Disinfection:

    After the mold remediation is complete, our mold technician will apply a polymeric disinfectant that prevents and protects against future mold growth.

    The cause of water damage can be water from putting out a fire, broken pipes, malfunctioning appliances, storms, flash floods, or sewage backups. Many times floodwater carries toxic contaminants, disease, and infection-causing bacteria so it should be treated as hazardous until analyzed by an expert. A proper analysis will assist in presenting appropriate steps for successful mitigation. Floodwaters and raw sewage contain bacteria, blood born pathogens and other organisms which are extremely hazardous to human health. Failure to remove or disinfect contaminated materials can present long-term severe health risks. While cleaning up after a flood the air quality in your home or office may be the last thing you think about it, but you cannot ignore it. It should be cleaned using the latest technologies for air scrubbing and disinfection.
