MOLD DAMAGE REPAIR
The presence of excessive moisture in your home, due to poor ventilation, an appliance leak or the aftermath of flooding, if left untreated, can support mold growth. Mold naturally occurs everywhere in the environment, but certain types of mold release harmful toxins and can pose a health risk to humans and pets. There are also situations where mold is present, but is not visible. The EPA recommends immediate mold removal of any active mold growth inside a structure, whether it’s your home or business.
Our certified mold damage restoration experts are trained to identify mold, clean and restore the affected areas, and ensure there is no recurrence. If you suspect you have a mold issue, our certified restoration professionals are prepared to evaluate your property and provide you with a mold removal estimate. SpangleR also has mold damage experts who can examine your home and provide the best course of action to prevent mold.
Mold is usually not an issue, unless it starts to grow indoors. The best way to control mold is to control moisture. Indoor air quality is greatly impacted by mold growth. If you smell mustiness, it’s very likely mold is present. It could be advantageous to have your home analyzed by a mold removal expert.
Dealing with mold can be overwhelming as well as dangerous. When your home and health are exposed to mold, you need to rely on our team of professionals instead of trying to deal with the problem yourself. Heat and harsh chemicals may offer a temporary solution to your mold problem but may not completely erase the threat mold causes.
Trust our trained and certified mold technicians to not only clean up the mold in your home, but to find the moisture source and eliminate it so mold can no longer thrive. We check your home structurally, to find mold inside walls, and check in crawl spaces too. No matter how small the patch of mold is, it can grow quickly, so call the mold removal specialists at SpangleR right away.
SpangleR partners with you through the entire repair process, from Start to Finish
The first and most important factor, in our pursuit to earn trust in each of our reconstruction projects, is meticulous communication. Every job is assigned a project manager, who monitors the entire process and will keep you informed, and answer any questions that may arise. When emergency services are required, a SpangleR representative will contact you by phone within 15 minutes at any time of day.
Mitigation is the process of stopping further damage from occurring. Once the property is secured, the next steps are to properly dry, contain and remove damaging elements and prepare for the restoration process.
SpangleR uses current and state-of-the-art estimating programs, and are updated monthly for accuracy at each geographic location. A typical estimate will have detailed line items and a sketched diagram of the areas involved. An Emergency Service/Mitigation bill is prepared at the conclusion of the initial service and can be billed directly to the insurance company. Then, a detailed estimate with the entire scope of work, will be presented before restoration work begins. Customer Product Selection Forms and Change Order Forms are used to communicate and track customer selections. A payment schedule is also setup at this time.
The reconstruction phase of the project is when results start to show. All scheduling is handled through our Job Planning system. Customer involvement is encouraged to assure choices are understood, and also to prevent any miscommunication or misunderstandings. Your project manager will work to schedule in a manner that minimizes inconvenience and delay.
Once we complete your job to your satisfaction, we use a Certificate of Satisfaction to confirm this. In most cases your insurance representative will issue payment. If your name is included on the payment, we ask that you endorse the check when the work is complete and you are satisfied. Larger jobs may also include your mortgage company on the check, and may be setup on a payment draw schedule. We can help you through this paperwork process.
Your complete satisfaction and willingness to refer our services to others is our ultimate goal. All repairs completed by SpangleR will be guaranteed for one year and will cover defects and/or malfunctions due to faulty installation. We are available for questions and concerns anytime before, during and after repairs.
When to Call a Mold Removal Professional
We’ve all opened the refrigerator or cupboard at some point to discover a green or black fuzzy substance growing on cheese or a loaf of bread. While it’s definitely not appealing, that type of mold is easy to get rid of—just throw it in the trash! But there is another kind of mold that is even more dangerous, and it’s much harder to eradicate—that’s the kind of mold that grows in your walls, under your carpets, and anywhere else there might be moisture. In that case, a mold removal specialist needs to be called in.
It is estimated that as much as 25 percent of homes in Charlotte, North Carolina and throughout the rest of the country have mold problems, but the residents don’t even know it. They might even have visible mold under the kitchen sink or in the corners of the basement, but they just brush it out of their minds, thinking it’s just dirt or something that is completely harmless.
The harsh reality is that mold is toxic. In fact, it can be even more dangerous to your family and your pets than some pesticides and other chemicals. Here are a few red flags that you need to call a mold removal expert immediately:
Mold will grow anywhere there’s moisture. If you’ve recently had a flood in your house from a broken pipe or severe weather and the carpet and walls weren’t dried out properly, you probably have mold. Condensation on the walls and/or floors is also a sign that mold is lurking nearby.
There are more than 100,000 types of mold, and each one looks slightly different. Mold comes in many colors, including grey, black, brown, green, and white. Some types of mold look like a bundle of thread, and other types appear as spots or clusters. No matter how small the patch of mold is, it can grow quickly, so call a mold removal professional right away.
Even if you don’t see mold, but you can smell it, it’s probably there.
If your hay fever is worse when you come indoors, it might not be an allergic reaction to pollen—it could be a reaction to mold. If your family is sneezing, coughing, and have runny noses, but you’re not sure why, call a mold removal specialist.
Other Physical Symptoms
In severe cases, mold can cause headaches, nausea, vomiting, vertigo, vision problems, and even death. If you or a family member or pet is sick but the flu’s not going around, it’s a good idea to have your home inspected for mold.
