Water Damage Inspections and Remediation
Trusted Mold Remediation Services for Your Damaged Property
It would be best to inspect your home for mold growth annually, especially in areas you might not see very often, like a crawl space or the attic. Developing mold threatens your belongings, your family, and the structure. We have trusted professionals to help with all aspects of mold remediation and post-disaster recovery.
Mold damage is not going away on its own. So you need to ensure you are taking the right steps to address the threats your home or office faces by its presence. Quick action is sure to save documents and furniture from mold threats, but it will also improve air quality and living conditions, making them less of a health hazard. Our experienced professionals understand mold and how it develops, giving us an edge in removing active colonies and working to prevent any recurrences.
If you Suspect Mold is Threatening your Home – Schedule an Inspection
If you suspect mold is growing in your home, it’s essential to schedule an inspection right away. While mold spores are present in almost every environment, they can become a problem in your home if moisture is present for an extended period. Mold can grow almost anywhere, but some materials and areas in your home are more susceptible to mold growth than others.
If left untreated, mold can damage building materials and surfaces and become a health hazard. That’s why it’s essential to regularly check for changes in areas like drywall, wallpaper, carpeting, drapes, HVAC and ducts, attics, crawl spaces, basements, and stored paper and documents. To ensure proper removal and remediation, contact our team at Lighthouse Disaster Services. Our experts have the tools and expertise to inspect, identify, and safely remove mold from your home.
Mold Remediation for Your Home or Office
Mold remediation involves a comprehensive approach to completely eliminate active mold colonies from your home. The process typically involves two stages: staging efforts to prevent further spread of spores and removal of the mold itself. We follow a step-by-step approach, starting with the least invasive and abrasive methods. For instance, we use High-Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) vacuums to trap airborne spores and reduce the risk of repeated damage after the mold colonies have been removed.
