Mold and mildew remediation services are services that are used to aid with the clean-up, removal and prevention of mold and mildew in commercial and residential premises. Mold is a serious problem that can have disastrous effects for both your health and your property and using mold remediation is the best way to deal with it quickly and effectively so that you can rest assured the problem is fully solved.
The first step with mold remediation as with water damage restoration will always be to stop the source of the moisture that is encouraging the spread of the mold. This is very important as mold can grow on porous surfaces in as little as 24 hours. The area will then be dried which must be done carefully so as to prevent the spreading of dust and mold spores. Where the mold has set in under carpets, within the walls or in insulation, this might involve the removal of fittings and decorating. The next stages in treatment will often depend on the severity of the mold and the extent of the damage.
While mold remediation services can provide comprehensive treatment for mold in the home, it is always better to avoid mold problems rather than treat them where possible. Get regular maintenance for your pipes and for your home generally. The more you do this, the more you can avoid water damage and mold remediation. While it might be more expensive to get regular checks, it saves money in the long term.
