Can Mold Make Me Sick?

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….

How Long Does Mold Removal Take?

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.

Is Mold Remediation EXPENSIVE?

Traditional Mold Remediation done correctly is generally more than $500. This is because it requires complex procedures. Negative-pressure containments 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.

Why Follow Mold Remediation Standards?

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.

Can You Prove To Me That The Mold Is Gone?

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.
