Professional Mold Testing & Removal Services

Keep Your Home Happy & Healthy With Serclean’s Mold Remediation Services

Mold—why does it happen and how do you get rid of it? It would seem easy enough, all you would have to do is clean the area and move on, right? However, effectively removing and remediating mold in your home is much more extensive than you may think. At Serclean, we’re dedicated to helping property owners maintain their homes or businesses. Join us as we discuss the mold remediation process, including why mold occurs, how mold testing works, the different types of mold, and more. 

Why Does Mold Happen?

Mold can grow underneath drywall and carpets, especially if you’re dealing with excess moisture from leaks or other sources, and can be extensive in some cases and the process of removing the contamination can require several days of work. In other situations, there are much quicker methods of rendering your building mold-free. Mold in a home or commercial building is often due to: 

  • New Construction 
  • Plumbing Issues
  • Water Line or Drain Line Failure 
  • Inconsistent Maintenance
  • Excess Rain (Storms, Hurricanes, Etc)

What Is Mold Remediation?

Mold remediation refers to the entire process of eliminating and preventing mold and mold spores. At Serclean, we use a specialized mold remediation process detailed below. It includes mold testing, mold removal, and professional cleaning and sanitizing to ensure mold doesn’t return. Each scenario will be unique when it comes to home mold remediation, and our team will assess your situation to determine the best course of action. 

Mold Removal vs Remediation

Mold removal is when you remove mold from an area and it visually looks clean. However, this doesn’t guarantee that mold is completely rid from that area—that’s where mold remediation comes in.

Our Mold Remediation Services and Process  

While some mold remediation companies train their technicians, our company has the only certified mold testing and removal technicians. The removal of mold requires specialized procedures to ensure all of the spores are eliminated along with the current growth on a building’s surfaces.

Do I Need a Mold Inspection?

A brand-new home shouldn’t need to be inspected for mold since it takes time for it to grow and develop. However, if you’ve lived in your home for a while in humid and wet climates, you may want to consider having your home inspected for mold. If you’re unsure if there is mold growing in your home, here are some signs to look out for that could indicate mold: 

  • Visible Mold
  • Musty Odors
  • Wetness
  • Water Stains
  • Mold Allergies
  • Condensation on Cold Surfaces
  • Flooded Basement

The Importance of Mold Testing Before Remediation 

To understand what type of mold is contaminating your home, it is vital to have professional mold testing completed by knowledgeable technicians. Mold spores often thrive behind surfaces in wall insulation or wooden building frames, and a technician can remove an electrical switch plate to collect a sample or enter an attic to collect a sample from the roof’s supporting beams. Understanding the species of mold can make it easier to receive reimbursement from homeowner insurance companies.

What Is Mold Testing?

When one of our technicians comes out to your home to conduct a mold test, they will collect samples of mold from the air and hard surfaces such as ceilings, floors, and plumbing fixtures. The testing samples are then sent to laboratories to determine what species of mold it is which will help determine the remediation process. 

Do I Need a Post-Mold Remediation Inspection?

Once your home has been remediated for mold, it’s up to you as to whether or not you would like an inspection post-service. Some property owners who have a mold remediation service schedule post-inspections to ensure that all mold has been eradicated from the home. Not all companies offer a post-mold inspection, but we’re happy to show off our expertise and prove our skills. 

The Different Types of Mold 

Before the removal of mold, you must understand its species to use the correct removal methods and to prevent serious health complications. An incorrect mold cleaning process can lead to additional contamination in other areas of a home or business.

  • Allergenic Mold: affects roughly 20%-30% of people who have certain allergies, especially to mold, causing respiratory issues and other allergic reactions.
  • Pathogenic Mold: can cause certain diseases, especially to those with weakened immune systems such as children and the elderly.
  • Common Mold Types: are toxic to inhale or come in contact with. Unlike allergenic and pathogenic mold, some mold types are toxic and will intentionally harm other living organisms.

Cleaning with HEPA Vacuums 

A mold remediation company needs to use the best equipment to remove mold from your home with high-efficiency particulate air filtering equipment. To make sure that the mold spores are removed from your home, our mold remediation company will also sanitize a building’s venting system. 

The best way to remove contamination from vents and ductwork is with HEPA vacuuming devices that will suction all of the debris from deep inside the ventilation system. With HEPA purification systems, nearly 100 percent of the particles of contamination are filtered to avoid new contamination. 

In addition to removing mold growth from visible surfaces, our remediation team will seal each room’s vents to avoid contaminating surfaces during the cleaning process. Household dust, mold growth, and other debris are suctioned through HEPA filters into containers for disposal at an off-site location.
