Mold Remediation

“True remediation is not about using bleach to kill the mold.”

Mold problems can develop as a result of sudden water incidents like pipe breaks, washer hose failures, foundation leaks, etc.; these water problems can transition into mold problems relatively quickly as a result of slow or inefficient drying. Other typical mold problems develop over a longer period from slow plumbing leaks, roof leaks, windows failure, etc. Regardless of how it happens, moisture remains the trigger for mold growth in the indoor environment.

You can be confident that our training, experience and specialized equipment will return your home or business to a safe and healthy environment. We will work with your Indoor Environmental Professional (IEP) until post-remediation has verified the wholesomeness of your indoor environment. Actual remediation is not about using bleach to “kill the mold,” nor is it about painting to cover or seal it up. Trusting your property an inexperienced or poorly trained restoration company may only compound the problem, prolong the repair process, increase your stress level and even diminish the value of your property.

Since mold contamination is a microscopic problem, we recommend utilizing an independent third party indoor environmental professional for testing to verify that you have a problem, and once again to confirm a “final clearance” after remediation. Using an independent third party avoids a “conflict of interest,” inherent with mold remediation.

As a TSN provider, we incorporate the use of SteraMist; an EPA registered disinfectant proven to eradicate mold spores. SteraMist can be utilized as a final assurance to mold remediation or as a principal component in “mold mitigation.”

What is “mold mitigation?” Chavez Restoration offers a proven “Plan B” to mold remediation. The goals of mold mitigation are to eliminate the ongoing mold growth from the treated environment and then reduce the airborne contamination. Typical mitigation plans would involve cleaning of all active growth surfaces, control active growth by eradicating viable mold spores and HEPA air filtration of ambient air to remove airborne contamination.

Mold mitigation may or may not include limited demolition of building materials, thus, can save time and money involved in reconstruction. As all indoor mold problems are unique, we recommend scheduling a consultation with a Chavez Restoration Mold Specialist to help develop a remediation or mitigation plan that will best suit your needs.
