Why You Need to Hire a Mold-Remediation Company

Blog

Do you live in an area with high humidity? Have you found mold growing in your home? Your first instinct may be to simply attack the mold and mildew with household cleaning products. However, this might not be the best idea. There are a variety of reasons why you should leave the removal of mold to a trained professional. Some of these reasons include the following.

Chemical mixing: When trying to get rid of mold, you might find it tempting to spray the mold with everything and hope that something works. Unfortunately, this can be extremely dangerous when certain chemicals are involved. For example, when researching mold remediation, you may have come across information saying that an ammonia mixture can get rid of some mold. Other sites may say that bleach is a good option. But if you combine these two chemicals, whether accidentally or on purpose, the result is dangerous chloramines. These compounds can cause a variety of health problems, up to and including death. A professional mold-removal company will know how to get rid of mold and mildew without creating a danger for yourself and your family.

Special formulas: There are many sites online that offer advice on how to get rid of mold and how to keep it from coming back. But these homemade formulas don't always work as promised. They may remove some of the mold but leave some of it behind. Or they may seem to remove all of the mold, but the mold may come back quickly. Professional mold-remediation companies will have access to special formulas that aren't available to the average person. These chemicals will get rid of the mold and keep it from coming back. Most companies will even offer a guarantee saying that the mold will stay gone for a certain amount of time, or else the company will come back to remove the mold at no additional cost. That's not something that you'll get with a homemade formula.

Time: Even if you find a homemade mold-removal formula that doesn't kill you and that removes most of the mold, it can still take a long time to process an area that has significant amounts of mold. You probably have many other important things you'd rather be doing aside from dealing with mold. A mold-remediation company such as Charleston Environmental Services can take care of the mold quickly and efficiently, leaving you with more time with your kids or for doing grocery shopping and other errands.

What Is Your Home's Value After Restoration?

Would you like to restore and repair some areas of your home but first want to know how much your house will be worth when finished? My name is Gloria, and I help restore old homes as a hobby. I have restored more than 100 homes, and I have seen values climb. I can go over each section of a home, common problems that need fixing and how you can get the job done for as little as possible. Then I can tell you how much value it will add to your home's sale price. Restoring your home may be more valuable than you think.
