Effective removal of mold spores is critical to in-home safety. Mold can cause numerous health problems and can exacerbate issues such as asthma. Therefore, it’s important that homeowners have a comprehensive understanding on mold growth and mold removal services. In this blog, our team will review three of the most common questions clients have regarding the residential mold removal process.
1. How Much Does the Mold Removal Process Cost?
The cost of a mold removal project is directly related to the scope of services required to properly complete the job. The largest variables are the amount of time the company must spend cleaning the area, materials used, and equipment needed. As common sense would indicate, the larger the space and heavier the mold growth, the more the project is going to cost. Companies might also charge more for mold removal work completed on an emergency basis or on weekends.
2. Why Do I Need a Mold Removal Specialist?
The mold removal process can be complex. Those who try to remove mold from their home without expert equipment and training risk disrupting the spores and spreading them around the home. This is called cross-contamination. It’s the reason there are IICRC guidelines and IICRC-certified companies completing mold removal work across the country. Effective removal requires products such as commercial-grade antimicrobial, as well as professionally-designed containment barriers to ensure complete home safety. Professional mold removal firms also carry specific liability insurance to perform the work.
3. How Long Does the Mold Removal Process Take?
Depending on the severity of the mold issue, mold removal work can typically be completed in as few as 1-to-5 days. When the mold removal expert first visits the property to review the extent of the damage, they should be able to detail how long the removal process will take. This timeline might include a follow-up to review the work completed.
By gaining a better understanding of the mold removal process, homeowners can become more proactive in working with their chosen local area specialist. To learn more, contact our experienced mold removal team directly.
