Mold in your home is a serious issue and if you have small children or animals in your home, you will want to do anything possible to make sure they are completely safe. Mold can have terrible effects on your health, so if you’re facing a case of mold in your home, you may want to contact a remediator to help fix the issue. For those of you who haven’t dealt with a problem like this before, it’s important to find a mold remediator who is competent and reliable. Here are a few tips to help you find just the right person for the job.
1. Only choose a mold remediator who is certified: You want to have the highest quality of service, right? Of course you do. You should opt for mold remediators who perform all of their own inspections and remediations. All you have to do is ask if they hire subcontractors. You may also want to ask for recommendations from past clients to ensure that they’ve been successful in the past.
2. Find a mold remediator who will inspect your home before they begin work: Some mold remediation companies will test for asbestos and lead in addition to various types of mold. When the mold remediators visit your home, they should do a visual pre-inspection of your property before proceeding. They should then conduct both an air-quality check and a swab check to test for mold. After this, ask for a proposal of services that the remediators plan on providing. The remediator should give you general information about mold and its health risks, thorough lab results, and a list of the procedures that will be implemented to fix your mold issue. After you’ve had your home disinfected, you should have it retested to check for any traces of mold. Even the smallest amount of leftover mold can reproduce, undoing all of that work you just paid for.
3. Check for a warranty: Ask your mold remediator if he can come back and redo areas that show signs of mold within six months to a year after they disinfected your home. A remediator who stands proudly by his work will be the most reliable option.
Taking these steps to find the most qualified mold remediator for your home will not only diminish risks of health issues due to mold, but give you peace of mind knowing that your mold problem has been taken care of.
