Mold Removal & Remediation Services Beverly Hills, Orange County, CA
Mold is caused by a moisture issue in the affected area. It develops first as microscopic fungus, which lives in walls, ceilings, window frames, etc. Mold first appears as tiny black dots and could fast spread all over the place if untreated in time. Mold usually grows in damp and irregularly ventilated spaces; most often it occurs in bathrooms, kitchens, lofts, basements and any other premises where daily airflow is limited.
The first step to mold remediation is to have a mold survey carried out by a trained remediation specialist who will advise you whether it is safe to reside in the property and forward you a detailed plan of what is required to eradicate the problem. Our certified inspectors are well trained in visual assessments and come armed with sensitive moisture meters, IR thermal video cameras, and professional humidity meters to track down hidden mold and water damage.
Bleach and do-it-yourself “killing” sealants only deal with the surface, not the bigger problems beneath. The most effective way to remove mold and spores is through mechanical processes such as wet vacuuming, scrubbing, and completely removing infested materials. However, that alone would spread spores and harmful contamination. So following all standards and recommendations, at 411 Restoration, we isolate the work area and set up negative-pressure air exhausts before beginning mold removal. Our certified mold removal technicians have all the training, equipment, and experience it takes for safely dealing with mold problems, including black mold.
The most important way to prevent mold from growing back is to remedy the original moisture problem. Our water damage restoration specialists can quickly dry out existing dampness, and our damage repair crews can take care of building leaks. Mold remediation often extends past the infested area to include carpet cleaning and air duct cleaning to remove allergens. We may also apply antimicrobial agents to disinfect, and can permanently neutralize odors.
