Mold Remediation

Is Mold making you sick?

Microscopic mold spores exist naturally almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.  Many feel that because of this mold is not a problem.  However for many people who are sensitive to mold it can become a major health issue.  Many types of mold can produce allergens and irritants.  Most people have heard of the dreaded black mold. What is the truth about mold?

When water intrudes into your home or belongings mold growth can start in as little as 48 hours. Since mold is almost everywhere removing all mold from a home or business is impossible.  A qualified restoration company such as CFM Carpet & Upholstery Cleaners understands the science behind mold and mold growth. CFM has the training and expertise to remediate the mold in your home or business.  Mold remediation focuses on getting mold levels back to normal, natural levels.

Every mold remediation scenario is different and requires a unique solution, but the general mold remediation process stays the same.

Verify if mold growth is present:
We will come and inspect your home and find the moisture source and work with you to fix the water intrusion.  This must be fixed before remediation can begin or mold may return. We will do air and surface sampling which is sent to a lab to see if mold is present and what type.

Contain the affected area:
If moisture and mold are present, we will contain the area.  We will put up a plastic containment area so that mold spores don’t spread to other areas.  We will set up an air filtration system to trap mold spores.
