We understand that mold growth and property damage can occur any time and if your house is left for 24 to 48 hours without any proper treatment and with high moisture levels, it can lead to mold growth. Not only mold damage, mold can also result in some serious respiratory and health problems in human beings. This is due to the mycotoxins that are produced from it. A very common question we often get asked by our clients is whether or not bleach will kill mold. Well, bleach only causes it to fade or change it color on the surface. It will never kill it and mold will still be present in the air. We can help you get rid of mold by using special machines known as HEPA air scrubbers and HEPA vacuums.
We also get another common question by homeowners that how color of mold shows the level of harmful effects on the health. Well, this is not true and mold stain can only be identified by proper lab evaluation. The sample is usually analyzed under a microscope. When you hire us, this will be included as a part of our service. If you have kids and elders in your home, they are more prone to being harmed by mold than other individuals. However, there are some strains of mold which affect almost everyone if exposed to it. We understand the severity of the problem and can help you overcome it.

What are the signs of Mold Contamination?
Whenever mold and other toxins are building up inside your home or building, they tend to damage the structure of your property which not only causes stains all over the place but also results in a very odd smell. Both the mold and mildew can easily rot the framing windows and doors. They can even creep into the porous surfaces such as concrete, wood, carpet and fabrics. In most of the cases, these surfaces would require a complete replacement which can be quite costly. In case you spot any of these symptoms in your home or business locations, you need an immediate mold remediation.
Knowing that there is a mold problem is the first step
Once the problem of mold has been identified and has been treated, it is extremely important to ensure that it is completely removed from your property. Not to mention that individual removal attempts are very effective initially but sometimes when people try to remove mold themselves, it keeps on getting back and this is a big problem. Moreover, mold is extremely elusive as it grows in cracks and within the walls of your home. To ensure that it is removed once and for all form your property, we highly recommend you to contact a mold removal specialist to inspect your home and then provide you with a summary.
The basic purpose of conducting a mold inspection test is to find out the infestations of mold in different locations of your house. We will determine the cause and provide you with detailed information on how we are going to do the remediation process. Our mold inspection includes a basic valuation of your property for mold and conditions which cause mold. Our inspection also comes with moisture readings of the construction material. This includes exterior walls, interior walls, cabinets, floor, shower enclosures and concrete slabs. 24/7 Water Damage Restoration makes use of the best technology to help detect the excessive moisture in the construction materials, which is usually the primary cause of all the indoor mold.
At 24/7 Water Damage Restoration, all of our inspections are completed in a professional way by our certified mold inspectors. They will go an extra mile and offer what other companies don’t. We know that the mold spores and smells have a source and how to eliminate it.
Other than a visual examination, our inspection process also includes a deep forensic look into your property. This is like a complete home inspection in which we will look for possible water damage, musty odors and moisture intrusion. We will also alert you to indicate the hidden mold growth and conditions that are conductive to mold growth. We will also look inside of the drywalls, floors and ceilings with the help of our moisture meters as well as thermal leak detectors.
Once the visual inspection has been done, we will use an air sampling machine that tests for mold growth. Our inspector will usually take a total of three air samples. Once from the outdoor and two from the indoors. These are then analyzed by a certified indoor air quality testing laboratory.
