Every homeowner deals with residential mold remediation at some point. However, some homeowners experience a bigger mold problem than others. Sometimes, North Carolina creates a perfect combination for mold. We’ve got the summer humidity, occasional thunderstorms, and older historic homes. So, between all these elements, homes from Statesville to Monroe sometimes need extreme residential mold remediation. But, don’t worry. AFTERDISASTER, a family-focused company, comes in to safely remove mold from you home.
When you notice mold in your bathroom, you just spray some cleaning products and get rid of it. If you have a bigger mold problem, though, removing it won’t be so easy. Mold removal comes with all sorts of challenges that require a professional touch.
Mold grows best in dark spaces, which means that it hides out in tough-to-reach places. You rarely see mold out in the open. Instead, it grows in corners, behind walls, in attics, and in basements. That’s why you might go a long time before noticing the problem. By the time you do notice, you’ve got a major problem on your hands. It’s also the reason why mold is so tough to remove. You have to find all the mold before you can get rid of it.
Mold grows when water activates mold spores. Once moisture activates mold, that mold will grow until you put a stop to it. Unfortunately, the only way to stop mold growth is to remove every lastspeck of it. If you leave any mold behind, it will keep growing until you have a major problem again and have to start right back at square one. Even worse, cleaning the mold can actually create more mold if you’re not careful. When you disrupt mold, that mold releases more spores into the air. This can harm your health as you breathe in those spores. It can also create a new mold problem if water activates those spores. You may think you’ve gotten rid of the problem, but you’ve really just moved it to a different spot.
Thankfully, AFTERDISASTER-Metrolina is equipped and ready to get rid of your home’s mold problem. We have a step-by-step process that works every time.
First, of course, we have to find the mold. You can show us where you first spotted the mold, and we’ll figure out just how far that mold has spread. Like we said, you have to get rid of all the mold to keep the problem from coming back. The good news is that we know all of the places where mold likes to hide. It can’t run from the professionals. Once we’ve figured out how much mold you have in your house, we can estimate how long with rest of the job will take. If you’d like, we can keep you posted on the process.
Next, we clean. However, this isn’t an ordinary cleaning process. We use premium, specially formulated cleaning solutions that stop mold in its tracks. Our cleaning tools can reach into corners and other tight spaces where mold can hide. When AFTERDISASTER-Metrolina removes mold, we get rid of all of it the first time.
