Mold Cleaning

When mold grows, AMRestore is there to clean and restore what you value most, so your precious belongings return to their original condition.

Mold becomes a problem inside a home or business when there’s excessive humidity or moisture for an extended period of time. The problem can originate from sudden water leaks, like a burst pipe or large spill that goes untreated, or from a chronic condition, such as a leaking roof or plumbing. Even high humidity or warm, moist air condensing on cool surfaces can trigger mold problems.

It's always best to have the mold evaluated and removed by a certified professional to get a plan of action or “protocol”.

The IICRC outlines these steps for mold restoration:

Make sure safety and health precautions are taken by cleanup professionals and occupants. Mold-contaminated buildings can be associated with a number of health problems.

A post-cleanup assessment by an independent environmental expert. An effective mold remediation protocol cannot be developed without first determining the extent of the contamination to be removed.

Control of mold before it spreads further. Eliminating mold at the source of contamination is essential. Once mold spores spread through the air, it will be much more difficult to capture.

Oversee the proper physical removal of the mold. The mold must be physically removed from the structure. Attempts to isolate mold or remove signs of mold on the surface are not adequate. Note that bleach alone cannot kill mold.

Ensure that moisture is controlled to limit future contamination or recontamination. Moisture problems must be identified, located and corrected or controlled as soon as possible.

We take it one step further when it comes to mold…problems arise in mold remediation when contents are overlooked, that’s what we focus on!
