Excessive amounts of mold or certain types of mold can present health concerns for a building's occupants. Mold can originate from the presence of moisture in an area where mold spores are located. The moisture can originate from a variety of sources, including a slow leak or water damage. Sources of excessive moisture such as the result from water damage should be professionally remediated immediately to prevent mold growth or to prevent further mold from growing.
The signs of a mold presence in your property could include one or more of the following:
- Musty odors/smells
- Visible mold growth
- Water damage staining on the ceiling, walls or other surfaces
- Excessive moisture/humidity
- Water damage that has been present for over 48 hours
If you believe there might be a mold problem in your property, the best way to investigate is through a certified mold inspector who will evaluate your situation with the following methods:
- Visually assess your property and any areas of concern
- Take moisture readings of the air and wall, floor or other cavities using moisture testing equipment
- Take samples of the air and surfaces that will evaluated by a laboratory to determine if molds are present, the types present and in what concentrations
- Using other equipment and procedures, such as infrared thermal photography or inner-wall-sampling to determine if moisture and mold are present
Our specialists can evaluate your property to determine if there is a mold problem and, if so, provide an estimate for professional remediation, including limiting human and environmental exposure and the cleaning of your air and contents effected by the mold problem. Following remediation of any contaminated areas, we can completely restore your property to its original state and provide methods for deterring any future mold problems in other areas of your property. In addition, we guarantee that our work areas will be free of mold for multiple years. Our services can be provided in a confidential and discrete manner to prevent worry by your family, friends, tenants or employees.

Air Duct Cleaning
It is important to control indoor air quality (IAQ) in your property. Over time heating, air conditioning (HVAC), ventilation and the air ducting that circulates the air in a property can become contaminated with dust, mold, bacteria, pollens, allergens and other particulates that could cause negative health effects to the individuals occupying the property. Regular system and ducting cleanings are an important step to improving the over quality of the air inside of a property. Specialized equipment and tools are used to carefully clean these systems. Annual cleanings are recommended under normal circumstances. Situations that may require more frequent cleanings are as follows:
- Pets inside the property
- Smokers inside the property
- For residents with allergies, asthma or other respiratory conditions
- Prior mold or water damage
- Prior fire or smoke damage
- Following a home renovation/remodeling
- Prior to moving into a new property
Odors inside of a property can stem from a variety of issues. The following are the most common sources of odor:
- Water damage
- Sewer damage
- Fire, smoke and soot damage
- Cigarette smoke
- Pet urine and feces/litter box
- Pet dander and bodily fluids
- Litter box
- Skunk spray
- Sweat and body odor
- Urine and feces
- Blood and other bio-matter
Some of these odors can be controlled and limited, but often these odors permeate the building material or contents inside of a property and cause permanent odors. Airing out the area is only a temporary solution to this problem. Odors are being inhaled (as they are detected by your olfactory system), which means whatever is contained in that odor is most likely entering the lungs. With situations involving biological or chemical contaminants, this may pose a health risk to the occupants. This is especially true when dealing with mold and water damage. Deodorizing is often one of the steps involved with the remediation of a more serious problem with a property. For more information regarding odor control and removal, please contact us at 1-888-822-4036.
Restoration is the re-construction or rebuilding of an area of a property following the removal and treatment of damaged or contaminated building materials during remediation. These areas may have been contaminated by mold, water damage, fire and smoke damage, or a variety of other harmful substances. The building materials that were removed and treated may have left areas of the property with structural gaps that are unappealing and require rebuilding/reconstruction.
The restoration effort would put the areas in question back to their original or a like-new state where it appears like there was never a problem to begin with. These areas and the surrounding areas can also be remodeled to the owner's specifications to have a new look all together.
Complete restoration estimates can be produced for you at no charge or obligation. To request an estimate for restoration of your property, please contact us at 1-888-822-4036.
