Indoor exposure to mold can cause coughing and wheezing in healthy people and issues for people with asthma and respiratory problems. Restoration Authority offers many mold remediation services to protect your home or business from dangerous molds.
Air Quality Testing
Allergens, odors, and germs can quickly spread, causing your family or employees to get sick. If your family or employees have been feeling ill in the same way, you may have poor air quality. To better understand the cleanliness of the air in your home or business, call Restoration Authority to perform an air quality test to ensure safe conditions. Restoration Authority works with testing facilities and can provide mold inspection, laboratory analysis and remediation plans. We know how to identify and eliminate the source of mold and create the proper processes to eliminate mold growth.
Air quality testing is just as, if not more, important than a home inspection. It exposes problems with your home or business that, if not promptly repaired, compromise your health and safety and that of anyone who spends time in the building. Air quality testing can determine whether or not your indoor air quality is worse than the surrounding outdoor air quality. If it is in fact worse, mold, or another air pollutant, may be thriving within the walls of your home or business.
Mold Inspection + Testing
A mold inspection is when a qualified mold inspector who has formal training and experience looks for mold growth in a building. Mold inspections should look for evidence of past or current mold growth, mold within the building, inside walls, and in other areas where mold growth is undesirable, and sources of moisture.
Restoration Authority suggests a mold inspection when you are experiencing an allergic reaction. The symptoms are a runny nose, sneezing, or itchy eyes associated with being in a certain room or building. Some people also have them performed before moving into or selling a home.
Mold testing involves taking a sample of either the air or a surface. The mold inspector “tests” the air or surface to find out what kind of mold exists. Samples are sent off to be tested at the laboratory. After the mold is tested, Restoration Authority will know what kind of mold we are dealing with and will create plan to remediate the mold.
Mold remediation helps homeowners and residents stay safe and healthy by identifying large-scale mold within the home and eradicating or encapsulating it. In most cases, it is better to have a mold remediation contractor do the work than a general contractor.
The first step is setting up containment and ventilation. Then the cleaning and disinfecting begins. This stage includes the actual remediation and disposal of infected materials. After the cleaning and disinfecting, then the technicians apply mold killing solutions. The next step is where the technicians address any moisture or humidity concerns.
Antimicrobial Cleaning + Sealing
Sometimes normal cleaning agents are not enough. Restoration Authority will use antimicrobial materials to rid your home or business of mold. Following the remediation of the mold, Restoration Authority will then apply a sealant to prevent the return of mold. This sealant also combats the side effects of mold like the stains and the smells.
HVAC remediation is the process of cleaning out your HVAC system using specialized blowers, vacuums, and brushes. Duct cleaning should also involve a thorough cleaning of the air handler, registers, grilles, fans, motors, housings, and coils. The EPA recommends cleaning your system when: there is substantial visible mold growth, ducts are infested with vermin, or if ducts are clogged with excessive amounts of dust and debris.
Disasters can happen at any time of day or night. Time is of the essence to prevent further damage when dealing with your home or business. Restoration Authority’s licensed professionals are available 24/7 365 days a year to assist you in the event of an emergency. Emergencies can range from water damage to property board up.
