When to Call a Mold Removal Professional

Detecting Unseen Mold

Though some varieties of mold are more dangerous than others, all types of mold should be treated as a health hazard. That’s because it’s often impossible to distinguish between the dangerous and less dangerous varieties without professional testing. Give First Atlantic Restoration a call, and we’ll get rid of the mold growth so you don’t have to worry about the effect it might be having on your family.

Protect Your Health

The removal of mold in a home will require special equipment. Plastic is set up in the home to create a negative air environment in each room. Most types of mold in a home are non-toxic, but close contact can be dangerous for some residents in a home. People with allergy symptoms in a home may be susceptible to mold. Removing all the mold in a home will make the dwelling safe for habitation.

The EPA sets high standards for mold removal, and First Atlantic Restoration adheres to them all. We understand that mold growth can endanger your family’s health and the structural integrity of your home, and we take our job seriously. Therefore, our technicians carefully follow a 5-step process from which they never, ever vary to achieve total mold removal and home repair. Here are First Atlantic’s 5 steps to a safe home.

Assessment:

The most important thing to remember if you see mold is: Don’t try to clean it up yourself! Well-meaning homeowners who think they can take care of the problem themselves may instead contribute to it by encouraging the spread of spores. Call First Atlantic right away and we will come out and perform a complete mold assessment for your home. We pride ourselves on our integrity: if our services are not necessary, we will tell you. If your mold problem is slight, we can give you the solutions you need to take care of the issue yourself. Remember: before doing the job yourself, protect your family by calling us.

Containment:

Before any kind of mitigation services can be provided, it is essential to isolate and contain the mold contamination to the area in which it is present in order to discourage further growth. If any other mold cleanup company tries to begin mold removal processes before taking containment measures, don’t let them continue and call us instead. All of our technicians are thoroughly trained and experienced in how to keep mold growth to a single area and we never bypass this essential step: we always follow proper procedure and perform due diligence according to EPA standards and regulations.

Filtration:

One of the quickest ways for mold to spread is through the air and via your ventilation system. We use specialized filtration equipment that uses “negative air” technologies and specialized “air scrubbers” to actually prevent air-borne mold from spreading during the removal process. It is a preventive measure that helps to ensure that mold spores remain contained.

Two Remediation Categories:

Before proceeding with any of Steps 2-5, First Atlantic technicians must receive written consent from the homeowner to perform any and all mold removal tasks. Our remediation process falls into two categories and the process used will be determined by the severity of the problem and the determinations made during the assessment step.

  • Light mold presence – If mold growth is caught early enough, our trained technicians can successfully use chemical treatments on the affected areas without having to remove any existing structural elements in the home.
  • More severe cases– If mold growth is advanced or if there are colonies within and behind walls or ceilings or under flooring, it may be necessary to remove problem areas altogether: drywall, carpeting, ceiling tiles, roofing, etc.

Our goal after mold removal is complete is to return your home as closely as possible to its pre-loss condition. All of our repairs are performed by professionals so you can be sure all repair jobs will be done right and in a timely manner.
