How Mold Remediation Begins?
The process of mold remediation will start in your New Jersey home with the identification of mold or red flags for mold.
This might include visible mold, areas of your home that demonstrate a history of water problems, musty odors, or more simply when the homeowner identifies mold on their own.
Genuinely, a mold inspection should be done prior to any mold remediation. Most companies in New Jersey offer free mold inspections. As a result, it is generally smart to stay away from any mold remediation companies that charge for their inspections. A mold special list can walk around your home with special tools and typically isolate the source of mold within 30-90 minutes.
You will know that you’re dealing with inexperienced mold remediation company when they focus more on educating you about your problem than trying to sell thousands of dollars of unnecessary mold testing.
Before you even consider contacting a mold removal company in New Jersey you should take into account the following guidelines:
1) If the mold assessor or my occupant smells any musty odors there may be mold present in your home. However, many mold remediation companies will try to sell you a lot of mold testing that you don’t need. So get multiple estimates from multiple companies.
2) If you the homeowner develop any type of earthy or metallic taste in your mouth this could be a sign that you’re suffering from mold exposure. Other symptoms include nasal infections, asthma, allergies, red or dry eyes, fatigue, lethargy, headaches, immune disorders, plus a wide range of symptoms.
3) Keep in mind that 34% of all allergies and asthma are triggered by mold. Young children and senior citizens are most susceptible to these problems. They wind up on all types of different medications that don’t work because they are sensitive to mold and unaware that mold remediation can solve the problem.
4) Never sign any contracts with a company that uses any type of high-pressure sales tactics or fear mongering to scare you. Mold remediation is an unregulated industry so any contractor can claim he is a mold removal specialist. This is why it’s important to ask for mold certifications, references, and to go as far as contacting previous customers.
Regardless of whatever desire you have for your home, it is very important for you to consider future consequences if you do not treat this problem right the first time. A lot a mold remediation companies will be willing to work with you on the price. But many times customers will demand things that companies shouldn’t be doing. Example: you may have mold growing on your insulation and the inspector may recommend that all of the insulation comes out. We have seen circumstances where the customer does not want to pay to have insulation ripped out and replaced. They think they’re saving money, and some companies might even do the work, but it is unethical and you can cross contaminate your entire home after mold remediation is done!
So if you’re going to have your home remediated be sure that it done right the first time around. We have spoken to way too many New Jersey homeowners who had their homes remediated two or three times and sometimes more. So please do yourself a favor and educate yourself is much as you can on mold remediation, testing and inspections. And most importantly know who you are working with.
