Mold Removal in Brentwood
For property owners in Brentwood, very few things are as frustrating as a mold infestation. Mold is subtle and builds up over time throughout the property. While spreading it works to eat away at organic materials like sheetrock, carpet, and even clothes if you’re unlucky. If that wasn’t bad enough, mold also causes health issues for the people living on the premises. That’s why the IICRC certified technicians at 911 Restoration of PG County are ready to handle your mold remediation 24/7/365. Whether you live in Brentwood or out in Suitland, we guarantee to arrive within 45 minutes of your call for all PG county area residents.
Being prepared for mold is easier when you know what signs to look out for. The most common signs of mold contamination include:
- Rotting wood
- Crumbled drywall
- Visible mold
- Breathing problems
- Persistent cough
- Pungent odor
It can be tempting to clean and remove the mold by yourself especially when it seems like the mold hasn’t grown or spread that much. Don’t do it. Normal cleaning methods don’t actually get rid of the mold and actually agitate the mold spores. Agitated mold spores can go airborne, which allows new colonies to grow in otherwise clear sections of the property. The only complete resolution is professional mold removal.
As soon as you suspect or become aware of mold, be sure to call the technicians at 911 Restoration. We’ll be there in 45 minutes for our Brentwood residents ready to get to work on their mold remediation. Get the Fresh Start that has you breathing easier.
Mold Removal Companies
There are plenty of mold removal companies available to handle your mold removal. However, none of them are backed by an IICRC certification and a combination of years of experience and adiditional training. Our technicians have taken those three components and developed a perfected mold remediation process that covers everything from mold inspection to full mold removal.
The first step of our process is a visual mold inspection. The visual inspection lets us determine the full extent of the mold infestation and how to best contain it before we can eliminate it from the premises. Once we have our action plan ready, we can work on containment. We use only the latest containment measures including vapor barrier to keep the mold from spreading to other areas of the property.
Once contained, we can begin mold decontamination. To accomplish this task, we use only the strongest industrial cleaners and detergents to ensure the mold is fully neutralized. After the mold is neutralized, we work on the mold removal itself. Mold thrives in a damp environment. While we handle the mold removal, we also assess any sources of water damage and resolve them so that the mold can’t come back in a couple of months.
Once you become aware of mold contamination, the next step is to call the technicians at 911 Restoration. We will take care of every aspect of your emergency restoration as part of our guaranteed Fresh Start.
Mold In Basement
Besides the attic, the basement is the most common room to have a mold growth problem. It’s dark and usually damp thanks to leaky pipes making a perfect breeding ground for mold to thrive in. The darker and wetter the basement, the more of a problem owners have on their hands. Often, nothing short of a full mold remediation and additional mold decontamination is needed to resolve the problem and get back to good as new.
Mold in the basement can be extra trouble if allowed to thrive for too long. The longer the mold exists, the more likely it is to become toxic mold. Some strains of toxic mold like black mold can cause organ shutdown and ultimately death if left unchecked. That’s why prompt and responsive action is needed with any mold growth. We take your health seriously, which is why we offer mold testing services while handling your mold remediation.
If the mold is found to be toxic or the amount of water is excessive, we will often perform a second mold decontamination to ensure that every trace of mold is neutralized and eliminated. Part of our restoration approach also includes assistance with the insurance claims process for our Brentwood residents on an as needed basis.
