There is a likelihood that moisture will remain in hard-to-reach areas of a certain structure if water damage restoration was performed poorly. This provides one of the necessary conditions for the growth of molds and mildew.

Mold Damage Removal

Molds can be found anywhere whether indoors or outdoors. All they need to grow and spread is moisture. This type of fungi spread through spores that are easily blown away. They thrive in places that can be exposed to water but are not dried right away like your shower or your basement. As long as a place is somewhat moist, you can expect molds to live there especially when that place is not touched by direct sunlight. They can grow until they become harmful and until you need a total mold damage removal.

While molds are not inherently bad since fungi are a natural organism in the environment, they do cause damage to human structures. They even have more serious effects on the health of people especially those who have allergic reactions to molds. When your house or office is infested with molds, exposure to them can cause shortness of breath and to an extent, mold infections in the lungs. Since molds pose a major concern to a lot of people, Minuteman Restoration offers mold damage removal.

Mold Damage Repair

Mold damage repair is important in keeping the integrity of your home and the health of your family. Mold damage is often the result of poorly managed water damage problems. There is a likelihood that moisture will remain in hard-to-reach areas of a certain structure if water damage restoration was performed poorly. This provides one of the necessary conditions for the growth of molds and mildew. These can wreak havoc among individuals who may have respiratory allergies. At the same time, these can have long-term effects on the structure of our properties. It is imperative that the complete drying of structures be guaranteed if you want to prevent mold damage. This is what Minuteman Restoration guarantees.

Systematic and Comprehensive Mold Damage Repair

Mold damage repair starts with a very comprehensive examination of the problem. Our team of professional repair specialists can pinpoint the source of the problem fast and with amazing accuracy. We use only state-of-the-art equipment and assessment tools for this. This can make you feel more confident that the problem will be solved right at its root.

We perform a very thorough cleanup of everything and not only the affected items. Our technicians perform a very thorough carpet cleaning and drying as these pieces of fabric accessories can be excellent environments for mold growth. We also provide meticulous dehumidification to help remove moisture in the air. This is something that molds need to survive and proliferate. Removing these factors can help inhibit their growth and prevent their reemergence.

Our team can also provide you with amazing odor control and deodorizing solutions. Mold growth tends to produce a characteristic odor that borders between wet, spoiling socks and rotting garbage. It is almost always certain that molds are already forming spores that can get airborne and enter the respiratory passages when you smell these odors. Healthy individuals can have mild to moderate cough or throat irritation.
However, it can be life-threatening to those with severe allergies. That’s why we also provide disinfecting solutions to help make sure these mold spores are killed even before they are inhaled.

This can even later on lead to worse health issues, leaving you fatigued and depressed. Thankfully, mold damage restoration is a problem that we are highly trained and experienced to deal with.

Whether or not you have seen it with your own eyes or simply suspect a case, you should call us to help take care of the problem. We bring with us the expertise, the connections, and the best equipment to fully diagnose and restore problems.

Assessment of the Affected Area

To tackle the problem of mold growth, the whole property should be assessed to find all affected spots. As the problem might be invisible, we will turn to state-of-the-art equipment like thermal imaging system to find spots that have mold spores. In doing so, we are able to identify risky areas where moisture is higher and mold loves to grow.
Part of making sure it is dealt with properly and that future growth of mold spores is avoided, it is vital to have a thorough drying of the structures and even lowering the humidity levels at home to avoid future growth. In parts of the property that have mold growth, they should be contained and maybe even removed. To prevent them from growing back there, it is also a great idea to ventilate the part of the home more regularly and properly dry.

Cleaning Carpets to Get Rid of Mold

Our other services like carpet cleaning are also vital to prevent the growth of spores and do a thorough cleaning to sanitize your carpet.

Disinfecting and Deodorizing the Place

Cleaning and disinfecting might include the use of certain disinfectant sprays and other tiny microbes in order to make sure they will not come back again. Because of our very thorough cleaning, we are hopeful that no mold spores remain and grow uncontrollably next time. One of our last steps is to also sanitize, deodorize and purify the air. Once done, you can consider your home finally restored from mold damage.

If your home has gone through some water damage or flooding, you have to consider beyond simply drying the place. We will also make the effort to accomplish the removal and restoration quickly to avoid more headaches and work in the end.
