Black Mold Remediation & Removal Experts
If you have mold, you need trained certified mold experts you can trust!
Properly performing mold removal and remediation must be done someone that is highly trained. Containment and air control, with the ability to eliminate loose particulate from entering in other rooms, or entering your central air / heat system, is the difference from keeping your entire home safe, or cross contaminating the structure and making the issue worse.

Information on what might have caused the mold helps in determining the best course of action. Was there recent water damage or do you just smell mold? Most likely we’ll suggest a visual inspection to confirm mold and scope of area affected.
Visual Mold Inspection
On site walk through
Our experienced mold tech will thoroughly inspect your home for both mold and check moisture levels. If we do find mold, we can provide appropriate mold sampling, remediation plans and even estimates for required remediation activities.
Are mold tests needed?
If you can see mold, you don’t necessarily need mold sampling to confirm you have mold but you may need sampling to determine how far it has spread and which items are affected. We use an independent 3rd party lab to insure there is no conflict of interest.
Complete Black Mold Cleanup by Certified Experts
A visual inspection determines if you have mold and how much area is affected. If mold or excessive moisture is found we can provide the list of steps required with estimates on what it takes to return your home to pre-loss condition. Direct insurance billing available for claims.

Mold remediation is the process of removing the materials that have been damaged by mold and need to be replaced. Most often this can be carpet, padding, wood flooring, drywall or cabinets. This involves some tear out and demolition but it is limited to only the damaged areas.

Effective Mold Removal and Remediation Steps
The IICRC industry standards (which both contractors and insurance companies follow) states that physical removing mold contamination is the primary means of remediation. Mold contamination should be physically removed from the structure, systems and contents. Attempts to kill, encapsulate or inhibit mold instead of proper source removal is generally not adequate.
All work is performed by highly trained technicians experienced in mold removal and remediation and includes many of the following steps:
There are chemicals, cleaners, fogs and sprays that promise to rid your home of mold. Both IICRC and the EPA state these methods are considered ineffective.
The only effective mold remediation should be source removal.
Our Mold Inspections include Certified Dry Check, a Moisture Inspection for your home to ensure it's safe and healthy
Making sure your home doesn’t have excessive moisture is critical to preventing mold, that’s why with every visual on site mold inspection, we automatically perform a Dry Check Inspection. Never worry that your home has hidden moisture that can allow mold to grow.
Accurate Moisture Mapping, Prevent Mold From Returning
Whether you’ve had water damage that caused mold or just started noticing it, moisture tests are important part of mold remediation.
Our D.A.M.P. (Deep Assembly Moisture Profiling) is advanced technology that utilizes small penetrating electronic sensors designed to detect moisture even inside the wall cavity.
Many water damage and mold remediation companies still solely rely on inadequate non-penetrating moisture meters and infrared cameras that can only read the surface and partially into the drywall.
Our technology can provide the assurance the moisture issues have been fixed.

Common Questions about Black Mold
The Truth about the Dangers of Black Mold
When you hear the term ‘black mold” it refers to Stachybotrys chartarum and it is but one of many molds that can have chemicals that are both cancer causing and allergenic. As we discussed earlier, many people in this industry use it as a fear tactic to make people panic. Don’t be scared by claims of toxic black mold. In order to be able to address it, you need to have a properly educated and experienced assessor to determine what you have and put together a remediation protocol for it that meets current standards and is guaranteed to produce the results you expect. The good news is it can be taken care of and after the work has been completed a test can be performed to show your home is safe.
If you are suffering from headaches, nausea, and/or sinus infections, no, you are not out of your mind! It definitely could be due to mold exposure. Exposure to elevated levels of mold growth can produce a variety of health issues for you, your family or staff. Additionally, your immune system may respond entirely different than others in your household or workplace.
Now, imagine a fruit tree in a hurricane….Got that picture? Well, if you disturb mold without a controlled containment, millions, and possibly billions of spores can be released into the air. If you see the evidence of mold growth, do not remove the contaminated materials or the problem could become much larger. We don’t want that! That’s why we take the removal of mold very seriously.
The removal process is highly dependent upon the size of the area of affected. If the mold is still safely inside of a contained area such as a wall, we erect a safe barrier to prevent the spread of mold spores. This usually means the process can be completed in under a week. However, if the mold has been disturbed, or we discover it has grown into previously unseen areas, this of course, will add some more time to safely address the issue. Your air quality and safety is very important to us.
YES! We provide INDEPENDENT, 3rd-party documentation that your structure was not cross-contaminated and has been returned to a safe living environment through an Indoor Environmental Professional. This individual, hired from an outside firm, will use the appropriate testing procedures for your structure, ensuring your health, safety and protecting the value of your structure.
If you’ve recently had water damage and were told it was dry, but now you it smells musty, chances are your assemblies and material are still wet. It takes on average 7 to 15 days to dry most structures. We specialize in this type of mold issues.
Traditional mold remediation done correctly is not inexpensive. Just the sampling and clearance tests can generally exceed $500.00 each.
Proper mold removal requires complex procedures. Negative-pressure containment must be erected, all affected porous and non-structural semi-porous materials be removed, and all remaining surfaces must be hand-cleaned or media-blasted. Does it sound exhausting? It is! This process creates significant demolition, waste and labor hours. But don’t worry – your project will be discussed in detail with you before any costs are incurred to ensure you are comfortable before we begin any work on your property.
Mold Remediation standards are important to maintain a safe environment for our crews & the homeowner alike. Even the State of Florida agrees!
With practices and procedures based upon the IICRC’s S520 Standard for Professional Mold Remediation, we take great care to remove the source of contamination in a structure only when it is truly necessary.
We also can be sure of our work product by following standards – we know what to expect, every time.
Bleach won’t kill mold, it can only make it unable to reproduce. It leaves behind all the toxic components behind that can be inhaled and affect your health. Never use bleach on wood, carpet, drywall, etc., in an attempt to kill mold, you can cause additional damage.
