Discovering mold in your home or business can be a very unnerving experience. You may find yourself wondering “What do I do now?” or maybe “How will I be able to afford this?”.
The truth is, when you are dealing with mold, the last thing you want to do is cut corners. Trying to clean it up yourself or simply paint over it won’t solve the problem. In fact, when it comes to mold, what you can see on the surface is often just the tip of the iceberg. Any ‘quick fix’ approach that you take is just going to prolong your issue as well as the potential complications that will go along with it. Your best and safest bet is to leave it to the professionals to get the job done right, and hire a trusted mold remediation company.
What is the Mold Remediation Process?
The first step in the mold remediation process is a mold inspection and damage assessment to detect the mold and determine the seriousness of the issue. Next, contain the mold to prevent further spreading and contamination using negative air pressure. Then, we perform an advanced air filtration process with powerful equipment such as air scrubbers and HEPA vacuums. Next, we will carefully remove the infected materials and treat the mold using only the safest antifungal and antimicrobial treatments. Finally, we will clean all of your salvageable belongings and restore your home or business back to its pre-loss condition.
How Much Does Mold Remediation Cost?
The typical range of mold remediation costs about $13.33 to $28.33 per square foot. The larger the problem, the more you can expect to pay. The good news is, your mold remediation may be covered by your homeowners insurance if your situation meets certain criteria. For example, if the source of your mold is due to a water emergency that is covered under your insurance policy, like a broken pipe or a flood, it could mean less money out of your pocket. At Rainbow International of Parkland, we are happy to work directly with your insurance company!
Do I Need to Get a Professional Mold Test?
Simply put, yes and no. If mold is clearly visible in your home, we can almost guarantee that you’ve got mold. In other cases where mold is NOT visible, you may be experiencing some health issues or noticing a musty smell in your home. If this is true for you, you may want to consider doing a mold test to confirm that mold is behind the issues that you are experiencing. Other times, like when purchasing a new home or getting a property appraisal, a professional mold test may be a good idea. Moreover, even when mold is clearly visible, additional testing may be necessary to rule out any further presence of mold that may not be visible.
Will Hiring a Mold Remediation Company Permanently Solve My Mold Problem?
Mold does not occur randomly; it needs a wet environment to grow and thrive. If you have mold in your home or business, that means that there has been some sort of water intrusion that was not properly dried up. Chances are, it is likely due to a broken pipe, a leak in your roof or windows, or some sort of flood. Even if you hire a remediation company to remove the mold, it will continue to be a problem, possibly even worse than before, if you don’t solve the underlying issue. If you hire the right company, they will not only remove the mold, but also identify and correct the source of your water intrusion and prevent the mold from coming back. Rainbow International of Parkland will make sure to cover all of the bases before leaving the job, leaving you safe, satisfied, and your home/business back to its pre-loss condition.
