FAQs for Mold Remediation Services

How do I know if I need professional mold remediation?

It is imperative to take expert mold treatment into consideration if you have recently sustained water damage, detect visible mold growth, or smell musty. Furthermore, mold may be to blame if you or any members of your household begin to experience inexplicable allergies or respiratory problems. For complete eradication and to avoid health hazards, professional remediation is necessary if the damaged area exceeds 10 square feet or if mold is present in your HVAC system.

What is the difference between mold removal and mold remediation?

Mold remediation includes finding the source of the mold, getting rid of it, and putting precautions in place to keep it from growing back. Mold removal concentrates on getting rid of the mold from a specific location. Remediation is a more thorough method that deals with the source of the issue, guaranteeing a long-term resolution to mold problems.

Can I stay in my home during the mold remediation process?

The degree of the mold infestation and the regions impacted will determine whether you can remain in your house. If the impacted area is appropriately isolated, staying in the house can be safe for minimal repair efforts. It could be safer to temporarily relocate in cases with extensive mold issues, particularly those involving HVAC systems or large areas of the property. After evaluating your circumstances and taking safety precautions into account, our staff will make a recommendation.

How long does the mold remediation process take?

The extent of the mold development, the size of the affected area, and the difficulty of the removal all determine how long the mold remediation process takes. This procedure can take one day to a week on average. Following an evaluation of your property, our staff will present you a thorough schedule to ensure your everyday routine is not severely disrupted.

Is mold remediation covered by homeowners insurance?

Depending on the policy and the reason for the mold growth, homeowners insurance may or may not cover mold remediation. Generally speaking, your insurance might pay for the cleanup expenses if mold develops as a result of an unexpected and covered calamity, like water damage from a busted pipe. Mold brought on by disregard or unaddressed maintenance problems, however, might not be covered. For more information on your coverage, we advise speaking with your insurance company. When it comes to the paperwork required for your insurance claim, our staff can help.
