When mold is discovered, what is the proper course of action?

Contact an environmental hygienist to test the area by swab or air sample to determine if it is an elevated issue that could cause health risks.

You can also contact a professional remediation contractor to provide the proper scope and steps to contain the affected area, remove the materials properly, go through proper cleaning protocols, etc.

Mold spores can live inside and behind many porous surfaces such as flooring, drywall, cabinetry, wood shelving, insulation, and paneling. We have obtained certification through the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC), the standard in the industry, for the removal and replacement of these materials.

Be cautious of remediation contractors who perform testing services (doing their own testing for mold before remediation and performing their own clearance testing) and also do the remediation work, and contractors who assume that an entire home needs treatment for an isolated occurrence of mold.

If you think you may have a mold problem in your home or business, it’s important to call our industry certified mold remediation technicians at Water Extraction Experts. We’ll do an inspection of your property. We have the know-how to remove mold safely and effectively.
