Locate The Mold Source

Discovering mold hidden on a wall after water damage after a bad storm. Maybe it’s foundation cracks or a plumbing leak in your home. Whatever the cause of the mold you’re facing in your basement, crawl space, or HVAC on the property. You want to take action fast. We want to move quickly as possible to repair the water issue or other issues and prevent new mold spores from growing and continuing to spread and damage the environment and surrounding areas.

Contact An Indoor Hygienist

Have your home tested for mold. Mold is not always something you can see or see immediately sitting on the surface. Mold can be an indoor air pollutant that brings terrible sickness when too much is inhaled. An inspection will help you find any mold and let you know the type of mold you are dealing with. An indoor hygienist has many of the industry’s state-of-the-art tools and equipment to test for mold and have the results in a few minutes to a half hour.

Schedule Your Mold Remediation

While most mold is not toxic, some mold can be hazardous. For this, you want a licensed experienced professional dealing with the mold. After a Hygienist has determined the type of mold and what areas of the property have been affected, it’s time to schedule your mold remediation expert.
HCR will review the assessment made by the Hygienist and determine the most viable ways to remove, clean up, sanitize, and remediate the property. If you skipped the step of using a hygienist, HCR can step in to help you not only get rid of the mold but identify the cause of the problem. Mold remediators will treat the mold like a standard hazard based on previous experience to tackle it best.

Mold Remediation Insurance

A standard homeowners insurance policy should cover a mold claim if the growth has been caused by a covered hazard that is sudden or accidental in nature. If you’re experiencing mold and have not already called your agent for a claim for water damage (if that was the underlying issue), go ahead and call your insurance agent if the damage is severe enough after being determined by your Hygienist or mold inspector.
Let your agent know about the mold damage and schedule your remediation. They will ask you if you have a mold remediation company or give you a referral if you have not contacted one. Dealing with your insurance company throughout the mold removal, cleanup, remediation, and reconstruction process can be kind of a headache so make sure your mold remediation company can handle it for you.

Stay In A Safe Environment

Once you have assessed the environment of your home for mold, we do not recommend investigating it any further for yourself unless you wear the proper protective gear. For example, if your basement has flooded, experienced sewage backup, or a sump pump backup you will want to wear rubber boots because the water may contain waterborne bacteria.
Let your agent know about the mold damage and schedule your remediation. They will ask you if you have a mold remediation company or give you a referral if you have not contacted one. Dealing with your insurance company throughout the mold removal, cleanup, remediation, and reconstruction process can be kind of a headache so make sure your mold remediation company can handle it for you.

Document Your Mold Damaged Property

It is very important that if you do decide to make a mold damage insurance claim that you take pictures, videos, and notes of everything that has been damaged that is not salvageable. You can place all of the property documents into a digital folder and share this with your insurance agent.  This includes your personal belongings such as appliances, furniture, electronics, and clothing.
You will also want to account for your residential elements like the ceiling, walls, and floors. If you are unable to assess what is salvageable your mold remediation technicians will be able to assist you in all types of property loss.

Keep Your Point Of Contact Available For Updates

When you are working with your mold remediation technician it’s important to have a main point of contact available during the time the mold removal, cleanup, remediation, and reconstruction process is in place. You can establish a time that is best to be contacted but make sure if you have a second point of contact that you make your expert aware just in case.
The removal, cleanup, and restoration process is a 24/7 procedure. So it is important that if there are updates about your residence, an estimate, or a claim that you can be available to discuss the steps further. As HCR will make sure to be available for you day and night.

Call Your Agent For Mold Coverage Details

After the property has been assessed, an estimate has been given, and your agent and mold remediation technician has began communication. You are free to go about your regular schedule. Along the way, your mold remediation expert will guide you regarding salvageable belongings, conditions, the day-by-day process, the proper equipment, and the necessary resources to get your residence back to pre-loss.
Sometimes it can be a headache to get ahold of your agent about your coverage so make sure to ask your mold remediation expert for help here in follow-up.
Exterminate Spores

Specialized Mold Remediation

If your experiencing recent water damage or moisture but mold growth is not yet noticeable it’s important to have an antimicrobial agent applied to the space until the space is completely dried out. The application will also kill any mold it comes in contact with. Once the source has been identified, technicians isolate the contaminated areas sanitizing every single surface and porous material with proper techniques and antimicrobial products.
To eliminate the spread we contain the areas with large heavy plastic as well as sealing off heating and air conditioning vents. It’s important if you are staying in the residence not to use the HVAC as you will spread the mold to uncontaminated areas and cause a larger issue.

Ensure All Mold Equipment Is Running 24/7

One of the most crucial elements during the entire process is removal. Throughout the mold remediation process, the mold-affected area needs to stay in a negative pressure environment, especially if we’re dealing with a large amount.
During the process of mold removal, spores can be disturbed and become airborne. Along with containment, the air needs to be cleaned as well so negative air machines with high-efficiency particulate air filters (HEPA) run continuously throughout the project. This ensures mold spores, dust, microbial volatile organic compounds (MVOCs), and other airborne debris are removed from the affected area.
It may be tempting to unplug the equipment but allowing these machines to do their job will save more time to move into the cleanup and remediation process.

Mold Remediation and Reconstruction

In most cases, the only effective way to ensure proper mold remediation is to remove affected materials completely that cannot be adequately cleaned. This commonly involves drywall, insulation, base boards, carpet, carpet pads and even furniture.
Once all areas contaminated by mold that require removal have been fully cleaned out such as your carpets, floors, walls, or ceiling. It’s time to finish the job and restore your property to it’s original condition. As your local experts, we partner with many of the local material companies and with better prices for us means better prices for you. Save the time, money, and headache by choosing HCR.

Mold Damage Pre-Loss Conditions

Deep breathe in, deep breathe out. Finally, it’s been a few days, a week, or maybe a little more depending on the mold damage severity. Once the remediation has been completed your hygienist and mold technician will revisit the space to provide a final clearance test. Giving you peace of mind that the mold has been properly mitigated.
Finally, you have your healthy home back in a magical environment you can call your own. No mess, no headache, not even a single concern. All because you chose the right professionals to handle what they know best. Pat yourself on the back for making the right choice and feel free to gloat (and refer) your property remediation and restoration team.

Mold Removal and Remediation

Difference between Mold Removal
and Mold Remediation

Mold Remediation

Mold removal is one step of the remediation process. Removal is the step when cleaning and disposing of the unwanted mold spores that are on surfaces or materials that will be discarded.

Mold Remediation

Mold Remediation is the full multi-step process of getting fungi back to natural levels. These steps include inspection, containing, air filtration, cleanup, removal, sanitizing, repairing, and revisiting. If your home has had water damage, flood damage, plumbing leaks, or any other serious mold damage. It is best to hire an expert as specialized equipment and methods may be required to treat the mold completely.

How Quickly Must You Treat Mold?

When mold appears your safety is important and harm can be minimized with quick action. Who should clean it up is based on a number of things. The size of the problem. Is the mold is in your HVAC or is the mold is from water or sewage damage? The EPA states if the mold problem is less than 10 square feet (roughly 3 feet by 3 feet patch). In most cases, you can handle the job. Mold removal is essential before more issues occur. It’s detrimental to your family or your employees’ health to have the spaces treated.

Minor Mold Problem

1. Have your home inspected for mold. A professional hygienist has industry-regulated tools and equipment to get the test done accurately. An inspection will help you find all the mold and let you know the type of mold you are dealing with.
2. The professionals that inspected the mold issue will let you know if it’s small enough that you can treat it yourself. If that’s the case wear a respirator mask to filter out the mold spores. A dust mask will not do.
3. Fix the issue that resulted in the mold. Other protective gear you will need is eye protection, rubber gloves, rags, a scrub brush, and cleaning supplies. Solutions you can use are white vinegar or non-ammonia soap or detergent. A bucket for the solution after use, bleach, a dehumidifier, and multiple air movers. The equipment you can rent from HCR daily.

Major Mold Problem

1. Turn off your HVAC. This will help to make sure that if mold is in your HVAC it won’t spread throughout the house or building.
2. Call the professionals. Harrison’s will respond immediately and ask you some quick questions. Depending on the severity we may recommend one of our preferred hygienists come in to test the mold substance. If you would like our technicians to bypass the testing we will treat it based on our experience and show up for an assessment.
3. Call your insurance company. The information they will want to know: The property owner’s information. Location of the mold. A detailed inventory of possessions damaged. Removal and remediation estimates (these can be worked out between your mold remediation technician and insurance agent). Pictures or videos of mold. Then, essentially they will want to know the cause to determine if it is covered.
