Cleveland OH (PRWEB) November 30, 2012
Restoration Local, one of the leading providers of water damage restoration and mold remediation services in the United States, is offering tips to property owners on the best way to choose a mold removal company to work on a home or business. In the aftermath of record severe weather in 2012, may properties will be facing mold problems in the coming months.
Mold companies are numerous in every community, but that does not mean that there is an abundance of qualified providers. Many companies list mold removal services, yet lack the equipment, training, or experience to properly remedy a serious mold infestation. Hiring the wrong provider may actually serve to make a bad situation worse, allowing the problem to grow and causing repair bills to skyrocket.
Restoration Local advises the following questions that should be posed to any mold removal provider:
Can you identify and eliminate the source of the mold? Mold is almost always a byproduct of water damage, so the company you choose should have the means at their disposal to fix the initial problem that causes the mold as well as the mold growth itself.
How do you remove the mold and prevent it from coming back? It is one thing to kill mold, but quite another to prevent it from returning. Your mold removal provider should be able to explain to you exactly how they plan to remove the mold and treat the affected area to prevent future growth.
Eliminating the water source and bringing down humidity levels are vital to controlling mold.
Will you make necessary repairs? Many mold companies remove the mold and that’s it. Any repairs are up to you. The restoration process, however, should involve returning your property to its pre loss condition.
Is your work guaranteed? A qualified and competent company will stand behind their work. Any company that will not should be summarily dismissed.
What certifications do you have? A legitimate company will be certified by industry leaders such as the Clean Trust or Restoration Industry Association. Certification is no guarantee of competence, but it does mean the company has taken steps to make sure their personnel are properly trained to deal with all kinds of mold problems.
