Residential Mold Remediation and Cleanup

What is mold?

We have probably all encountered mold at one time or another. It might have been in the shower, or on a stale piece of bread or cheese. There are many different species of mold, but all molds share some common characteristics.

Molds and mold spores are naturally present in the outdoor environment all around us. However, indoor mold growth can become tenacious problem. Mold spread rapidly and produces an unpleasant musty odor. If allowed to grow unchecked, mold can cause discoloration and structural damage to building materials. A significant amount of mold can impact indoor air quality and can be difficult and costly to remove. Mold contamination is a growing concern for many homeowners, property managers, insurance providers and restoration companies.

What is the best defense?

Mold can start to grow in as little as 48 hours. To prevent the spread of mold, it is important to react quickly in the event of water damage. By identifying and eliminating the source of the water and implementing rapid drying process, mold growth can be curtailed. The most effective drying techniques involve the uses of sensitive tools to measure and record the temperature, humidity and moisture content of both the structure and contents of the home or building. Professional water damage restoration can mean the difference between a small cleanup problem versus a structure covered with mold. ServiceMaster by Best in Wichita KS professionally trained technicians use the latest water restoration and drying techniques to deliver quality results.

What is the best defense?

If we observe mold while cleaning in your home, we will respond appropriately, immediately reporting our observations to you or the insurance company. When the extent of mold contamination is isolated and/or less than 10 square feet, expensive testing and protocol are generally not required. ServiceMaster by Best and its network of partners proceed with the claim and related work to perform emergency water damage mitigation work, including the remediation of the mold. We will isolate the contaminated area and remove the mold, while protecting the surrounding areas from the possible spread of mold spores. 

When we encounter a affected areas of more than 10 square feet, we will contain the contaminated area, stop normal water mitigation procedures and immediately notify you and your insurance provider. In these cases, we strongly recommend the use on environmental testing service to establish baseline levels of molds, identify the types of mold present and develop a written remediation plan. Our goal is to work with you and the insurance company to establish the proper procedures to handle the mold situation.
