FAQ

What is mold?
Mold is a fungus that spreads and thrives in rotting or wet areas and has a number of negative impacts on both the property and the occupants. Mold, often known as mildew, can be found both inside and outside, in all types of weather and seasons. For it to grow indoors, there must be humidity and moisture in the air, as well as carbon sources from the building components.
What is Mold Testing?
Generally speaking, a sample of the air or a surface must be taken for mold testing. A mold inspector essentially “tests” the air or surface to determine what mold is present and if the mold can grow in the area examined and this is called mold testing.
What are the causes of mold growth?
The news that you have mold in your home is never welcome. It is one of the most daunting things to hear for all the right reasons. Mold is bad news because it means smelly odors, possible respiratory problems, humidity and pest infestation in your beloved home.

At the same time, identifying, finding and treating mold is not exactly a walk in the park either since the mold tends to hide in challenging places.

Why is dehumidification important?
A rise in excessive air moisture can cause building and property damage along with uncomfortable conditions for you and your family. It can also be costly for you financially because you will need to run your air conditioning at a higher temperature more frequently to counteract the effects.

A relative humidity range of 30% to 50% is advised for interior spaces. Any levels above this are harmful and ineffective. Fortunately, basement dehumidification can reduce interior humidity.

Why Get Air Purification in Your Home?
You must be aware of the dangers of breathing in the contaminated air outside. The same holds for indoor settings. Yet, 90% of our time is spent indoors at home, work, school, or visiting stores or eateries.

The term “Particulate Matter” refers to minute dust and dirt particles in the air, including soot and dust mites, as well as gases like carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxide, and sulfur dioxide. Gas stoves, wood burners, dampness, and mold are all potential sources of indoor air pollution.

What Is Water Damage Restoration?
Bringing a water-damaged building back to its actual condition is called water damage restoration. This appears to be very simple at first. But depending on the affected area’s size and the damage’s extent, the drying out procedure might take anything from a few days to weeks.

Most property owners mistakenly believe that water damage restoration consists of surface drying a property, but this is neither true nor safe. Restoration work after damage from water is time-consuming and thorough. Starting with water extraction and mitigation services include drying out the building using humidifiers and air movers, restoring the contents, removing the damaged materials, and finally rebuilding.

How does Water Damage Homes?
Hurricanes and floods are not the only traumatic events that cause water damage. Pinhole-sized leaks in pipes, improperly graded soil, clogged gutters, or a sump pump that won’t work are all common causes of property damage. However, many water damage incidents are caused by fixable defects that most DIY-ers may take care of before they become an issue.
