Mold Remediation

Water damage is the first of a one-two punch that is to be delivered to your property. The second punch comes in the form of mold and mildew, which are the most common byproducts of any water issue, and by far the most difficult to control, remove and remediate. Mold shows up rapidly, usually within 48-72 hours of a water or flooding event, spreads rapidly, and presents a very serious health threat to those living on the property. Trying to sell your home? Mold is also a guaranteed turn off to potential buyers, no matter how much you lower the price. Nobody wants to inherit this particular problem.

Does your home have mold? It’s not hard to find out, as mold appears as a greenish black, fuzzy growth on piping, walls, and ceilings, accompanied by a dry and musty smell. There is no mistaking it, so if you think you have mold, chances are you probably do. If you do find mold in your home, it is important to take steps to get rid of it NOW. The mold will only grow and get worse over time, with the health hazards growing correspondingly.

Mold occurs all the time in nature, and is quite a valuable element, breaking down the remains of dead organic matter. We encounter mold spores all the time with no ill effects. The problem arises when mold spores are encountered in large quantities within a concentrated area, such as a basement or crawlspace. Spores can be inhaled, where they settle in the lungs and become a foreign body, one that breaks down tissue. This can cause numerous problems such as infection, allergic reactions, respiratory problems, and even more serious neurological disorders.

2nd Chance Water Restoration is a certified mold removal provider, with the proper training, certification, and experience to not only remove mold but also prevent it from coming back. Mold removal does little good if the growth will only return with time. The environment must be treated in such a way as to make it inhospitable for mold growth. This includes drying all surfaces, improving ventilation, and reducing relative humidity levels. By doing so, there is nothing in the area for the mold spores to feed on, and the likelihood of dealing with a mold problem in that area again is drastically reduced. Remember, only certified professionals should deal with mold problems, and 2nd Chance follows all mold remediation protocols to the letter, and we back our work with the restoration industry’s most comprehensive guarantee. This means you get the best job done right, allowing you to resume living in your home with the assurance that the problem has been correctly and properly addressed.
