Any company can label themselves as a mold remediation company, but how do you know that they’re actually doing it right? What is it that makes them a legitimate company you can depend on for something so serious?
Take a look at these tips and things to look for.
Mold Remediation Requires Training & Certification
Really, any company claiming to handle mold damages should be certified to do so. Mold is not your everyday cleanup project. It can cause serious health risks, and there are very specific methods to clean up and remove mold safely.
One of the first things that you can do to weed out the companies you should avoid is to find out whether they are trained and certified to work with mold. These companies should undergo extensive training and experience to ensure they really know how to remove mold properly.
What is the Process?
Before you hire a company, ask what their processes are. There should be some specific steps that they complete to get the job done. Every company uses different terms and processes, but it should follow a basic pattern:
- Inspecting and assessing damages
- Creating a plan for remediation
- Containing the space with mold
- Setting up proper air filtration for the process
- Removing the mold and the moldy materials safely
- Cleaning and sanitizing the area
- Final restoration and inspection of completion
When you ask a provider about their steps, it may not look exactly like this. However, it should still incorporate all of these things in some way.
Are You a Priority?
Mold is not something that should be ignored. A customer with mold shouldn’t be put off for weeks until the remediation company can make time for them. You should be a priority. While they may not be able to get to you the minute you call, you should be seen quickly.
The longer mold has to thrive, the worse the damage can get. Mold can grow and reproduce very quickly. The best companies will make you a priority.
Don’t Be Afraid to Ask Others
It’s a great idea to find out from other people about their experience with their mold remediation company.
Ask around to find out which company people you know and trust have used. Find community pages that recommend local companies that are worth using. Sometimes word of mouth is really the best way to determine who is or is not worth your time.
After all, a company can make itself look really great on the surface, but their work and professionalism might be lackluster. Don’t fall into that trap!
