Do You Need a Mold Remediator?
If you suspect mold in your home or business, you're probably anxious to get the problem taken care of as soon as possible. If you have small children, older adults or animals, it is even more important to effectively rid your home of mold so it doesn't affect their health.
When choosing a reliable mold remediator, it is important to consider the following tips:
- Only choose mold remediators that are certified. To ensure the highest quality of service, go with mold remediators that perform all of their own inspections and remediations. Generally, those who have been in business for a while and who have worked in a variety of settings including commercial and residential areas will be able to perform the most reliable services.
- Find a mold remediator that will inspect your home before they begin work. Later, the mold remediators should perform both an air-quality check and a swab check to test for mold. SERVPRO, among other mold remediation companies, will test for asbestos and lead as well as different types of mold. Make sure that contact information is included in the proposal so you’ll know who to get in touch with in case of problems.
- Check for a warranty. Check that the mold remediator also offers to come back and redo any area that shows signs of mold within six months to a year.
It is important to take some extra time to choose the best mold remediator to avoid further serious problems in your home or business.
