Mold growth can cause devastating damage to structure and contents. While mold occurs naturally in most environments, an abnormal amount of moisture can cause excessive mold growth as well as an increased health risk. Great care must be taken in the process of mold removal, and without proper education and training the probability of further contamination and damage increases.
We are certified by the IICRC in Applied Microbial Remediation and knowledgeable in the proper procedures, tools and equipment to use in this delicate process. It is essential that technicians working in a contaminated environment be fully aware of the necessary steps to protect the contaminated dwelling and its occupants. South River Restoration works with property managers, homeowners, insurance adjusters and industrial hygienists in providing full service mold remediation and recreating a healthy living environment.
HOW DO I KNOW IF I HAVE MOLD?
Mold can grow on nearly every surface on your house and is likely present there now. Mold, however, needs warm and humid conditions – like those present after water damage occurs – to grow to visible and unhealthy levels.
Mold can often be found in places with a lot of water use – bathrooms, laundry rooms, basements, and kitchens. Mold in these areas is often visible and easily removed without the help of professionals. Hidden mold in unseen areas can grow unabated – especially if flooding or plumbing leaks have occurred recently. Untreated mold growth can grow to unhealthy levels behind walls, in furniture, under the carpet, or in HVAC ducts and will require professional mold removal services.
