Mold Remediation and Removal for Commercial and Residential Customers
Mold can be discovered in an indoor area through two ways. Either known water damage has occurred or the smell is present. Both require the immediate help of an expert to stop further growth and expansion. Even if water damage is contained and your structure is air conditioned, you should always hire an expert to do an investigation. Some areas between walls may trap heat from outside air conditioning that may not reach.
Mold removal refers to remediation of the affected area. Mold spores can be extremely small and hide in the smallest of areas. The best way to treat mold is to treat the area it already exists and create conditions where mold can’t grow. Unfortunately, Central Florida has the right environment for growing mold. Luckily for residents of Orlando and surrounding areas of Celebration, Lake Mary, Longwood, Windermere, Winter Park, Kissimmee, Altamonte Springs and Lake Buena Vista, Duct Dynasty has state-licensed mold remediators on staff.
Experienced Mold Remediation and Water Damage Restoration
The process and equipment needed for mold remediation and removal is extensive. You can find DIY articles and videos on how to remove mold yourself, but we always recommend calling a professional. If any of the spores get loose and travel to other areas of the house, ducts or walls, you can be looking at an infestation continuing in other areas.
Mold remediation for residential and commercial customers includes many different types of equipment including protective clothing, respirators, covers, pumps, air scrubbers, HEPA vacuums and more. Even humidifiers, fans and blowers must be specially positioned. Let the experts of Duct Dynasty use their equipment and expertise to contain the mold problem you have now and let it spread. Our state-licensed mold remediators have the equipment and expertise to get it done right.
When you first see or smell mold, or are aware of any water leaks, you should start the remediation process ASAP. Mold can grow over 24-72 hours into a significant problem so it’s important to act quickly. First, call Duct Dynasty to schedule your professional inspection with our state-licensed mold remediators. Next, close the affected areas and do not allow any people or pets to enter. If you have anyone with respiratory issues, young or elderly, you may want to move them to another location until you are advised how to proceed. Turn off any HVAC systems including fans and air conditioners. Remember, the spores can easily travel and you don’t want them to move to a new area.
While it may seem logical to start cleaning with bleach or other disinfectants, we always recommend waiting until the professionals arrive. Mold can transfer easily on your shoes or cleaning equipment. Mostly likely there will need to be some removal or carpet, insulation or dry wall. Any respirators or clothing used will need to be thrown away.
Don’t go about removing mold yourself, call the state-licensed mold remediators at Duct Dynasty and rest assured your mold problem is handled correctly.
