Cleveland, OH (PRWEB) April 13, 2012
Restoration Local, one of the leading providers of water removal and mold remediation services in the country, is advising homeowners on the importance of asking the right questions before hiring a mold removal service provider. 2012 severe weather season is underway, which means water damage, which means mold. It is important to qualify any mold provider before allowing them to work on any property or valuables.
There are a lot of mold removal providers out there, some of which will perform quality work, while others simply take the money and do the least possible. This often leaves you with more problems than solutions. They key is to properly vet any company before hiring them, and the following questions are recommended.
What Training have you Received?
Most states do not require any certification for mold removal services, but obviously it is better to work with one that has gone the extra mile to get certified, since they will better understand different mold removal situations and needs, as well as how to do it safely. The Clean Trust and Indoor Air Quality Association are two of the more reputable certification agencies in the industry.
What about Rates?
Many people like to go for the cheapest option, believing they got a deal, but in the case of mold removal, this is unwise. It is important to balance reasonable rates against quality service.
What about References?
Advertisements are one thing, but nothing sells a product or a service like word of mouth. Ask them for references and then follow up on them. A quality company will have no shortage of satisfied customers who are willing to recommend them.
How can I be Sure the Mold will Not Return?
Unless the job is done properly, mold will return. The company needs to be able to explain how they will not only remove the mold, but treat the area in order to prevent it from returning. The solution should involve getting rid of the water or moisture source that spawned the mold in the first place.
Why Should I Choose your Company?
Most every company is good at singing their own praises, but they should be pinned down as to why they are the best choice. If their explanation involves low rates, move on to other options. The ideal company will offer reasons why there service works and why you can trust it.
