They Can Fix That Have you ever looked at a badly damaged wall, floor, or ceiling and just wondered to yourself, "How will I ever fix that?" Well, you might not be able to, but that doesn't mean you should be without hope. Damage contractors fix extensive damage for a living. It's amazing what they can make right again. They can take an earthquake-shaken building and make it look like new. They can take a fire-damaged kitchen and make it shine. Damage contractors can point at something and confidently say "I can fix that." This blog is all about them and the work that they do.





Have A Mold Remediation Company Take Care Of The Mold In Your House

Mold in your house isn't a good thing. If you think that you have mold, then you need to contact a company that handles mold remediation. You don't want to try to deal with the mold yourself because you don't know what kind of mold you are dealing with, and you might not have the right equipment to handle cleaning up the mold. When you do call the mold remediation company, they are going to do several things for you. 

ID the Mold

The first thing that the mold remediation company is going to do is identify the kind of mold that you have at your house. The reason for identifying it before anything else happens is that different kinds of mold need to be treated differently. Not all mold is toxic, which means that the remediation company isn't going to have to take special precautions in order to make sure that the mold doesn't spread throughout your house or make anyone sick. The techs from the remediation company will look at the mold, and they may need to take a sample for further testing to confirm what they suspect. 

Isolate the Area

While the techs are cleaning, especially if the mold is toxic, they will want to make sure that the area they are cleaning is isolated. That can mean something as simple as a piece of plastic hung up over the door. That can keep dust, spores, and cleaning chemicals from spreading through your house. If the mold is toxic, the company will likely have to isolate the area more strictly. The techs may also have to wear personal protective gear so that they aren't spreading mold throughout your house or breathing in dangerous spores. They will also have to be sure that they have the proper disposal gear. 


The mold may be behind your walls, which means that in order to remediate it, the company is going to have to go chase it down. That can mean taking down walls, or parts of walls, to find where the mold is. The techs aren't going to take down more of your wall than is absolutely necessary. They should also dispose of any material that they had to demolish. 

If you have mold, you want to get rid of it as soon as possible. The way to do that is to work with a mold remediation company. They can come to your house and get rid of the mold, making your house safe once again.
