The best way to handle mold is to not get mold in your home or business in the first place. Prevention is the best medicine for mold and one more reason to contact our Property Assurance team as quickly as possible. Being able to dry your home as soon as possible will deprive mold spores of moisture which is needed for the mold to germinate and form mold colonies. If mold is present when our team arrives, Property Assurance professionals are trained to advise the property owner on the first corrective steps to take.
Property Assurance works with many well-trained and qualified Environment Hygienists and Laboratories in an effort to protect the families involved in a potentially dangerous mold situation. If your property has withstood recent water damage, it is vital to have the water eliminated and the structure dried promptly. A Property Assurance professional will be on guard for any visible signs of mold. In the event mold is found, an on-site technician may advise you to vacate the affected area while the mold cleanup and associated containment process is being safely completed.
Steps to take:
Step 1: Do not panic. Do not disturb the mold until it is evaluated by a Property Assurance Professional. A postage size area of mold can contain over 65 million mold spores. By disturbing these mold colonies it can release these spores into the air.
Step 2: Contact Property Assurance. We will determine what caused the mold, establish a plan for removing the mold, and determine the necessary actions to take to prevent the mold from recurring. Property Assurance is qualified to remedy all mold losses and our professionals provide complete mitigation restoration services which include:
