Mold can be difficult to identify and even harder to eradicate, so it demands the training and skills of an expert.

mold removal contractorsIf you believe that your building may have mold, then you are faced with two options. 1) You can try to identify and remove it yourself, utilizing some online tutorials or some advice from handy people that you know. Or 2) you could contact professional mold removal contractors and discuss the situation with them.

Perhaps you are on the fence as to whether or not you should have a professional investigate the situation. There’s something appealing about doing the job yourself: you experience the reward of your own work and build confidence in your ability to manage problems in the workplace. Likewise, you may not trust mold removal contractors to treat the situation with the same concern or care that you would.

Whether or not these are your concerns, they are important to address. Many misconceptions arise out of the fact that many do not understand what is involved in becoming a mold removal contractor. In order to make sure that there are no misconceptions and that concerns are laid to rest, let’s look at what the professional occupation of mold removal entails. Make no mistake: going with professionals is the only option to take. Here are some reasons why.

What It Takes To Be A Mold Removal Contractor

  • Certification: One of the most important things to understand about mold removal contractors is that they must complete a thorough and intensive board certification process. The certification process includes extensive training from an experienced professional who trains people on how to identify mold, assess the overall situation, isolate and remove mold and control the moisture in the building, among other essential skills. In order to become a certified mold remediation contractor, one must successfully complete the course and demonstrate proficiency in the area of mold removal through a skills test and written exam.
  • Tools: Mold removal contractors have access to important tools that laymen can neither own nor operate. For example,  in order to accurately identify mold, many contractors utilize a newer technology, such as thermal imaging to identify areas of moisture not visible to the naked eye. In many cases, these tools are indispensable and cost prohibitive for individuals to own and operate.
  • Pride: Here at Advanced Mold Diagnostics we actually love what we do. Our consultants view each job as a challenge to utilize building sciences to understand the extent of the problem. Contractors endure rigorous certification processes because they are passionate about their work and about creating a healthy environment for the staff and patients/clients who call upon their services.

If you are in need of the insight and expertise that can only be found with the best mold removal contractors, then Advanced Mold Diagnostics, Inc. is here to help. We will provide the professionalism and care that your situation deserves. Call us today at 1-888-993-4574.

Mold is not something to take a chance on, and it’s important to hire the best company possible to remove mold infestations.

mold removing companySo you know that you need to contact a mold removing company to deal with your building’s mold problem, but you’re not sure who to go with. A situation involving mold must be addressed with the highest degree of concern and professionalism. No one can afford to handle mold lightly, so it’s crucial to consult a company that does not cut corners and has your company’s best interests at heart.

While everyone believes that they should settle for nothing less than the highest quality, it can be much more difficult to discern the quality of companies from the outside. Which companies should you avoid? Which ones should you trust? Here are some characteristics of a mold removing company that you should avoid. While this list will not be include everything, it’ll give you a starting point to identify certain warning flags that indicate companies to whom you should not give your business.

Traits Of A Bad Mold Removing Company

  • Avoiding Education: Proper Mold removal companies do not merely exist to remove mold. The most effective and professional companies go far beyond the physical extraction of an infestation and invest in your company by educating your employees. If there is mold in your building, then the mold remediation professionals should take the time to educate your staff about the exaggerated stories in the media about the effects of mold and when it is serious and when it isn’t. If a business claims to be an upstanding mold remediation company but displays no interest in informing the occupants of a building about mold, then you should refuse their services and find a better option.
  • Making False or Incorrect Promises: While mold eradication is successful when accomplished professionally, no one can completely eliminate mold and there’s no need to as it’s part of the natural ecology. It’s only when you have appreciably more mold inside than outside that it’s a problem.  So, if a company claims that your building will never have a mold problem after they complete their work, then you can guarantee that they are not a trustworthy source on the issue.

    Mold removal specialists should be able to confidently say that they will remove mold that currently infests the building. However, no company can ever promise that mold will never return. While there are many helpful steps that one can take toward mold prevention, no one has complete mastery over nature. The claim that your building will never have a mold problem in the future sounds too good to be true… and it is. Avoid companies that make false promises like this.

At Advanced Mold Diagnostics, Inc., we go out of our way to ensure that you and your employees are educated about the potential effects of mold exposure. The range of exposure issues runs the gamut from nothing or simple allergic reactions to severe illness and even death. Education is the key, the media blows it out of proportion. Your staff needs to know if their exposure is a health concern or not.

Likewise, we will inform you about highly effective mold prevention procedures which you can implement immediately. We will invest our time and energy into your building and will always follow the proper mold remediation steps. We will not make false promises, but we can tell you that we have a 98.6% abatement rate / pass rate, and that our customers are highly satisfied by the quality of our services.  Count yourself among these satisfied customers, and experience a mold removal process that is second to none. Call us today at 1-888-993-4574.

Having a mold problem is a serious issue, and requires nothing less than professional expertise and care.

mold removal companyDo you think there may be a mold problem in your workplace? If so, then what should you do about it? Contrary to what you might read on the internet, the “Do It Yourself” model may not be the best way to handle a mold problem. Mold requires a trained eye and a skilled hand. If you’re wondering why we insist that mold should be addressed by a professional, then here are 4 reasons to go with a professional mold removal company.

Why You Should Go With A Mold Removal Company

  1. Assessment: Mold removal companies provide assessment services where they determine whether or not you have a mold problem. It’s important to have the insight of a professional, since the presence of mold is not always obvious. Mold often requires an experienced professional to accurately recognize and identify it.
  2. Concern: The prospect of mold in the workplace is a legitimate cause for concern, even though the media blows it out of proportion at times. Mold has the potential to cause multiple health effects such as simple allergic reactions, moderate in terms of people suffering from asthma, and high-risk for those with an autoimmune disease. These health effects demonstrate that mold should not be taken lightly. As a result, it’s essential to consult with a mold remediation company in order to avoid any potential reactions to mold.
  3. Removal: Mold cleanup is not an easy task. Many think that removing mold from the workplace or a building is as simple as throwing some bleach at it, but there’s a major problem with that line of thought. When you throw out moldy food, you’re not just getting rid of the mold, but also the food that it’s growing on. You’re not as much removing mold itself as you are just getting rid of the item that mold has latched on to. But you can’t just throw out the office building like you would an old sandwich. Even if you could, it would be a huge waste of resources to tear down an entire structure just because of some spores in a corner. The most responsible and efficient way to address a mold problem is to hire the experts at a mold removal company. They are able to successfully remove mold without causing unnecessary damage to the surrounding structure.
  4. Prevention: Professionals from a mold removal company will not only be able to identify and remove mold, but they also know the best ways to prevent mold from starting in the first place. Experts will be able to provide specific guidelines which are unique to your situation and will enable you to take steps toward mold prevention.

If you believe that there might be a mold problem in your workplace, then there’s no time to waste. At Advanced Mold Diagnostics, Inc., we make sure mold is eradicated in the most efficient and effective manner so that everyone can breathe clean air while they work. Call us today at 1-888-993-4574.
