Mold Remediation

Mold is a fuzzy, sometimes spongy, growth produced by several types of fungi. A common name for mold is mildew. Fungi includes organisms such as slime molds, mushrooms, smuts, rusts, mildews, moulds, stinkhorns, puffballs, truffles and yeasts.
A mold problem can grow quickly into a serious problem, so it is important to know how to identify a problem and to have qualified specialist conduct mold remediation and mold removal.

Mold includes five common types of fungus called Aspergillus, Stachybotrys, Cladosporium, Alternia, and Penicillium. But you know this by a common name, black mold. Black mold can be activated from very little spores and grow in damp, moist areas. A single leaky pipe could breed a huge colony, and there is no detectable visual trigger most of the time. The only thing you will notice is the muggy, musty smell. 

If you are able to smell black mold, the problem is much more severe than expected. Do not disturb the mold, or try to remediate it yourself. Molds release millions of spores in the air when disturbed that travel through your respiratory tract and cause serious breathing issues, and in extreme cases, can even be carcinogenic.

At Profix247, we have certified technicians who are licensed and experienced in handling mold growth without dispersing it. 

Our Mold Remediation Process

  • Immediate response

Once you inform our emergency services, we will send a technician immediately. We work 24/7 to help our customers, so it does not matter when you call.

  • Inspection

Mold inspection is the next step. This requires special licensing and is done by a certified Mold Assessment Consultant before the remediation can take place. We use an infrared camera to detect mold growth behind walls, between tight spaces. So no matter where mold is growing in the home, we will ensure to detect and eliminate it.

  • Mold testing

A mold testing is done to determine if there is a problem and the source of the issue and inflicted areas. These tests come after the remediation job has completed ensuring your home is 100% secure and free of health hazards.

Mold sampling can be taken from the air using vacuum pumps and spore traps. These things look like a plastic cassette with one end with adhesive. The vacuum sucks in air and traps the spores to the sticky side. The sample is then sent to an AIHA accredited laboratory to determine if the conditions match ideal criteria.

Surfaces are also tested through direct swabs or tape lifts in case if visible mold growth. This is how the inspector determines if the mold is airborne, which needs a lot more precautions. But you can have mold which is not airborne in cases the growth started from water damage.

These samples work as a proof to ensure our expert makes the perfect recommendation and success of the remediation process.

A test can also be done to understand if you have a mold problem, where the source is, how big the infected area and what technology needs to be used to eliminate the particular breed of mold.

  • Removal & drying

Moisture finds a way very deep inside the insulation, walls, etc. This means mold could be growing in places where you can never find them. They might not compromise the structure of the home, but they grow through every open surface in every direction.

Now, our experts know that the problem does not end with only what you can see. We work inside the structure, doing several rounds of testing to understand the severity and reach of the infection, and we work on the removal process accordingly. The equipment used by our professionals is industry standard and top quality. This ensures everyone involved in the process is safe and is using the right method to eliminate the mold, or it has a chance of coming back.

  • Decontamination

Decontamination is the most vital part of the mold removal process. One needs to take extremely serious measures to make sure the entire property is clean. If there is any single area where the mold growth is at its peak, we still seal off the rest of the property.

 This is done because mold can release millions of spores at the slightest movement. Our priority is not only to decontaminate the infected area but also to ensure mold does not spread to healthy areas.

  • Restoration

ProFix247 professionals will handle the initial damage from the mold remediation process and then work on rebuilding your area. Our job does not stop at merely removing the mold; we also make sure your living space is returned to its full glory.

Hiring a single, qualified company will save you cost on all these steps. Don’t jeopardize your health and safety of your family.
