What Makes a Good Mold Removal Company?
After the unfortunate discovery of mold growth in your home, your first reaction may be to Google your local mold removal company and schedule a remediation visit as fast as you can. But before you book, what should you look for in a mold removal company? Like any services you pay for in your home, not all contractors are created equal, and hiring the best quality services can be a difference between a Band-Aid or a long-term solution.
Three Signs of a Good Mold Removal Company
- Qualifications and Certifications: When hiring a mold removal company, take a quick look at their website or ask about what certifications or insurance they have. A trustworthy company will have experienced remediators that have been trained to industry standards and have professional certifications. For example, at MoldTech, we’re members of three independent and non-profit associations: The Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC), National Association of Mold Professionals (NAMP), and the Indoor Air Quality Association. Look on our About Us page for more information on what membership in those organizations brings to our team.
- Safety: If your mold removal company shows up with a pail of warm water and a couple of sponges, you might want to have them turn around. Adequate safety measures are one of the most important things a professional mold removal company should always be upfront and thorough about. At MoldTech we always thoroughly contain areas needing remediation, safely bag and dispose of contaminated materials, and use industrial HEPA air scrubbers to ensure that any airborne particles are caught. Our employee’s safety during the process is just as important as yours - our teams wear protective, disposable suits to prevent them from tracking mold out of the contained space and masks to keep their airways safe.
- Cleaning and Testing: The last step that any good mold removal company should perform is a thorough cleaning and air quality test. These steps ensure that there isn’t a speck of mold left in your environment - until that air quality test reads clear, MoldTech will clean the site as many times as it takes. Beware of companies who leave cleaning up to you - a good mold removal company has both the tools and the knowledge to facilitate a safe and thorough clean up after remediation.
Other Signs of a Good Mold Removal Company to Look For
A good mold removal company will have more than just these three signs, of course. Look for customer reviews and feedback on sites like independent websites such as HomeStars (our average customer rating is 9.9 stars out of 10 - based on 50 reviews!) to find out more about how they work and what kind of experience they have. Finally, a trustworthy mold removal company will give you a clear outline of the work needed alongside a detailed quote, and it’ll be in a language you can both understand and trust.
