Mold Remediation Services

Black Mold has a nasty reputation and for good reason.

Finding Mold Damage in your home can be disturbing. If you have found mold in your house, call Damage Doctors. Our Qualified Mold Technicians will safely perform a mold inspection and can test the air quality, determine the cause of the growth of spores and promptly remove the mold from your home.

This fungus breeds and lives off moisture. If your home has ever experienced flooding, pipe leakage or poor ventilation, black mold is probably alive and hiding in your walls or floors around the area of the water damage. Trying to treat black mold at home can be unsafe. Disrupting the spores without the proper protection and equipment is hazardous to your health.

At Damage Doctors, our Certified Air Quality Technicians utilize groundbreaking methods and equipment to ensure the best possible application and restoration of the treated areas. Our low impact, non-invasive system includes non-toxic, biodegradable products created specifically for the removal of mold spores and microbial growth. It’s guaranteed to remove all types of mold from your home or building safely, quickly and with less cost than traditional methods.

Small mold spores exist almost everywhere, including indoors and outdoors, and thrive in damp, warm settings. They can quickly spread through your property in as little as 48 hours, presenting you with a mold problem that could have been prevented if caught early on.

 Make your home clean and healthy again with Damage Doctors’ Professional Mold Remediation.

Indoor Air Quality

Poor indoor air quality (IAQ) has been tied to symptoms like headaches, fatigue, trouble concentrating, and irritation of the eyes, nose, throat, and lungs. Also, some specific diseases have been linked to specific air contaminants or indoor environments, like asthma with damp indoor environments. If you are suffering from mold then you most likely have issues with your indoor air quality as well.

The quality of indoor air inside your home or office is important not only for your comfort but also for your health. Molds can have a big impact on your indoor air quality. Any sort of mold, mildew, pollen, dust, or other biological debris can influence the severity of your air quality. We not only will remove the source of mold, but we work to ensure any spores or any other pollutants in the air are removed from your home.

What is Mold?

Mold is a common fungus that grows best in warm, damp environments and multiplies as microscopic spores. It travels through the air, attaching to structures like drywall, flooring and other materials in a home. Once it takes hold, mold in a house can multiply quickly in high humidity surroundings like basements, bathrooms and crawlspaces.

Molds are fungi that can be found both indoors and outdoors, all year round. Although some forms of mold are extremely dangerous or even toxic, some molds are relatively harmless. However, large concentrations of indoor mold can cause odors, health problems and, in some cases, structural damage to wood. An inspection and/or testing will determine how much mold is present in a home, and where.

Each indoor environment is an ecological system of interaction between the non-living physical environment and the living biological environment. It is important for restoration contractors to understand the construction principles of building systems and the effect of moisture on these systems and the materials used in the construction of such systems.

Damage Doctors is IICRC-certified in mold remediation.  We possess a comprehensive knowledge of the interaction of building systems and related physical laws in order to remediate a contaminated building and return it to its intended function.

If left untreated, mold can cause severe respiratory illness, difficulty breathing, coughing, wheezing and asthma attacks. The effects of mold are especially harmful to the elderly, children, and anyone with a compromised immune system. Damage Doctors is a professional mold remediation company with years of experience in helping homeowners with their mold issues.

Testing & Removal Estimate

If you discover mold problems in your home or have had water issues that lead you to believe you might have mold issues, call Damage Doctors immediately for a mold inspection. Sometimes a professional Air Quality Mold Test is necessary and we will consult with you and can provide this testing at very competitive rates compared to local labs.

Conditions That Promote Mold Growth

You will not likely experience mold growth unless you have a problem with moisture in your home. Excessive moisture can be caused by leaking pipes and appliances, flood damage or high levels of humidity. Most species of mold require that a surface be damp for at least 24 hours before the spores will begin to grow. Improper ventilation is another factor of mold growth.

Places Where Mold is Generally Found

Mold can grow in unexpected places, such as behind walls, the bottoms of couches or chairs, the backs of picture frames, inside heating and air conditioning systems, the inside of wall board and even beneath carpet. On dark surfaces, it may not be clearly visible.

Sometimes you know exactly where mold is located and what caused it. Any incident that produces moisture can lead to mold in the house. The following are some situations that can produce mold:

  • flooding
  • leaking pipes or fixtures
  • overflowing toilet or sinks and/or sewer backup
  • leaks from roof or around windows

The Musty Odor – Mold’s Calling Card

If you can’t identify mold by looking at it, you may be able to identify it by its smell. Some molds smell stronger than others but they almost always bear a musty odor due to the volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that they release into the air. It’s a sour odor, sometimes quite pungent. This odor can sometimes reveal the presence of mold even when the physical growth isn’t visible to the naked eye.
