House Mold Removal – Salem, NH 03079
Although mold can grow on almost any surface in your Salem, New Hampshire (NH) home or business, this multi-cellular fungus mostly thrives in low-light, poorly ventilated locations. Attics, basements, crawl spaces and even closets are great locations for mold to form, as long as there is moisture present. Discovering mold in your property can be stressful and overwhelming. To alleviate the tension it is vital to understand the proper steps for removing the mold and how to find quality house mold removal companies.
Questions to Ask Mold Remediation Companies
You have discovered mold hiding beneath the carpet in your home’s living room, which means the hardwood floors that you were hoping to put down, have now been placed on the backburner behind mold cleanup. The greenish-grey colored specks on the living room floor boards resemble the classic mold appearance, but you have a licensed mold inspector come out to take a sample of the growths to verify that it is mold. Once the mold is confirmed, it is time to locate a house mold removal company, but what questions do you ask them? How do you know which removal company to hire? Below are a few key questions to keep in mind when filtering out mold remediation companies:
- Is the company insured?
- Do they provide estimates and a warranty for services?
- Are they able to provide references?
- Do crew members wear Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)?
- Does the business work with the insurance company throughout the claims process?
- If your contents and belongings have mold damage, does the company offer restoration services?
- Are crew members available 24/7 for any questions or additional support?
