Mold is one of the least attractive attributes within any home’s basement or crawl space. It isn’t just how it looks, but it’s also the smell that can accompany most molds. In general, homeowners want to get rid of mold the moment it becomes visible. However, sometimes the mold is hiding, but the indications are clear.
The musty odor and the heightened allergy symptoms are key signs of mold. So, what’s the condition of your home? Do you want to prevent the mold, get rid of some mold or completely? One New York mold remediation expert has developed a three-tier system perfect for any of the above mentioned situations. What’s your pick?
Unseen Mold– 1st Tier
Maybe you don’t see any mold growing and you don’t even have the musty smell– but you want to be proactive. You don’t want to ever have a problem. You also know that your house has some moisture problems. The basement tends to leak and you’re always drying out the carpet.
If this sounds familiar then it might be time to prevent some future mold problems. Especially if you’ve had some moisture issues, there may be some mold growing in a place you just can’t see. It’s most likely not a lot though, because if it were you’d be able to see or smell its presence.
So, when you can’t see any mold, but you think you may have some growing– you don’t need to go the more expensive and intense route of mold remediation. Simply utilize a mold program that’s designed for the mold that is unseen. This program will work perfectly against the 1st tier mold.
Light Mold– 2nd Tier
Now, you see the mold and it’s a bit frustrating. The house is clean and the basement is really only being used for storage anyways. How could mold be growing? Mold only grows in dirty, gross houses– right?
Mold actually can grow in 24-48 hour time-spans and only needs moisture, comfortable climate and organic material to eat for food. This means the mold will actually feed on the wood, carpeting and other items of the like.
The best way to counter a light mold problem is by using a vacuum with a high-efficiency particulate air filter (HEPA). This actually will remove 99.97 percent of particulates, so that’s perfect for removing mold spores. When using this kind of program, you’ll have the benefits of this vacuum in addition to the advantages of the first tier removal.
Mold Remediation– 3rd Tier
When it’s been verified that mold remediation is a necessity, here’s what should happen: thoroughly remove the mold and particulates; clean with Anabec Cleaning to replace biofilm with hygienic surface to also make the surface more durable.
Why Use a Mold Expert
Mold can just be wiped away and thrown out, so why go through the hassle of finding an expert and then paying for their so-called “expertise?”
Well, there’s more to removing mold than just wiping a polluted service. Sure mold can be wiped away, but it doesn’t stay away. By using the best resources that are accepted and used by hospitals, you can feel sure that the mold problem is being resolved.
Be sure to research the guarantees of mold remediation as well as the company offering the service.
