Finding evidence of mold in your home can be a worrisome experience. The effects of mold on humans can range from mild allergic reactions (like hay fever) to death.
How do you get rid of it? How do you know that the problem has actually been fixed once you have a professional inspect and go through the remediation process? It may surprise you to hear that there are no federal standards for mold remediation. Some states have provided guidelines (California has adapted mold guidelines); but for the most part, industry standards are followed.
The first – and perhaps most important – step that must be taken to address mold growth is the removal of water. The source of the water must be found and shut off. Any remaining water needs to be extracted and removed. This needs to be completed by an IICRC professional.
The IICRC (Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification) is a non-profit organization that has set guidelines for water restoration and mold remediation. Same Day Restoration Cleaning is an IICRC Certified Firm (2016.) Our IICRC certifications include:
