Chances are, you work hard to keep your home or workspace clean. You understand the importance of a clean living space or work area, and you value the peace of mind that it gives you. While you can certainly do your part to regularly sweep, vacuum, dust, and disinfect, there are some things that can be especially difficult to do yourself. Sometimes, mold cleanup falls into this category. The reason for this is that mold isn’t always visible to the naked eye. Sometimes, mold can grow behind your walls in other hard-to-reach areas of your home. Left to grow unabated, mold can become an expensive and dangerous problem. Excess mold can make you and your guests sick if it gets into your respiratory system, so it is prudent to get rid of it as thoroughly as you possibly can. On certain occasions, this can mean hiring the services of a professional mold remediation service.
Mold is prone to develop in areas of excess moisture. If you have a leaking pipe, windows that don’t properly seal, or a porous area of your roof, the odds are good that mold will develop. Mold is particularly fond of wood surfaces, paper products, tiles, and cardboard. It’s also not unusual to find mold in drywall, carpet, or paint. If you have a serious mold problem, you will probably be able to smell it–especially if it is entering your home via an HVAC system. The good news is, mold can be prevented. Your best course of action for this is to manage your humidity levels and make sure there are no leaky areas in your home. Still, if you have mold, you will want to get rid of it promptly, and that’s where a service like ours can help.
How Does Mold Cleanup Work?
When you hire a service such as ours at SCOPE Environmental Remediation, we will come to your home and make a thorough assessment of the severity of your mold problem. We will then mark the areas needed for removal. You may see professionals wearing hazmat suits when doing this work, but you should not fret, as that is simply a safety measure. Once the drywall, carpeting, or other infected surface is cleaned or removed, we can then spray the area with a biocide to ensure that it does not return. An effective service will also clean up after all the work they have done, so that it will appear they had never been there. This calls for a lot of vacuuming and scrubbing, but the end result will be a complete disappearance of any visible mold.
