Mold: Is It Making You Sick?

Professional, expert mold remediation is your only solution.

Mold Remediation Rockville MD

Water damage caused by burst hoses and pipes, sump pump failure, sewage backup, overflowing toilets and bathtubs, water heater leaks, and faulty appliances is costly, and more importantly, it can cause health risks because of mold growth.

Molds are a fungus that develops in the structure of multicellular filaments called hyphal fragments. The perfect conditions for mold growth are damp, humid, and warm environments. Molds reproduce and spread by making spores. Mold is a derelict. It can survive dry conditions that do not typically support mold growth.

What do you do when you see mold on food? You throw it into the garbage can. Why? Because you know that mold can cause you to become sick. However, do you know how unhealthy it can make you?

Some people are highly sensitive to molds. Exposure to molds can result in a stuffy nose, red or itchy eyes or skin, irregular blood pressure, urinary problems, and wheezing symptoms, caused by water damage. Others with allergies to mold often experience more severe conditions, such as the development of and increased asthma attacks, fever, shortness of breath, respiratory infections, and coughing.

People with suppressed immune systems like cancer patients, those who received stem cell or organ transplants, and others taking medications that compromise the immune system are more likely to get mold infections.

Beyond the health risks, you may be at risk of property damage and tremendous financial losses, due to mold’s cousin - rot. In your home or building, rot can occur almost anywhere. The most commons places where rot develops is girders, sill plates, floor joists; basically, the entire structural system beneath your home.

Throughout your property, mold remediation is an intensive, exhaustive, and time-consuming process:

  1. Find the Source
  2. Contaminant Control
  3. Establish Negative Air Pressure
  4. Remove & Clean
  5. Air Duct & HVAC System Cleaning
  6. Post-Remediation Testing

The “DIY” (Do-It-Yourself) method is not useful, practical, or the correct treatment for mold remediation. Unless you have the technical expertise, education, knowledge, and leading-edge tools, equipment, and ability to perform post-remediation testing, it is unlikely that you will solve the problem.

Mold Remediation

We Restoration can provide mold remediation for attics, basements, bathrooms, and any other area of a property. We follow the IICRC’s S520 protocol—the industry’s most stringent standard. We don’t simply treat surface mold. Instead, we provide full-service mold abatement to prevent it from returning.

Water Damage Restoration

As your water damage restoration contractor, we will follow the IICRC’s S500 protocol, using specialized tools for any required demolition, cleaning, drying, and sanitizing. We can also connect you with local professionals to handle services such as waterproofing, fixing leaks, and much more.

Air Duct & HVAC Cleaning

We Restoration can thoroughly clean and sanitize HVAC systems and air ducts as part of our mold remediation projects. The National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA) also recommends regular HVAC cleaning to prevent mold growth and keep indoor air quality healthy.

Asbestos Abatement

For most of the 20th century, asbestos was commonly used in materials, such as insulation, floor tiles, ceilings, and more. Left undisturbed, asbestos can be harmless. However, if you’re planning to replace old insulation or remodel your home, you’ll need a professional asbestos abasement company to ensure these items are disposed of properly.

Crawl Space Encapsulation

Crawl spaces often provide the ideal environment for mold growth. Because they are out of sight, many homeowners don’t realize there’s a mold problem until it has become extensive. At We Restoration, not only can we remediate mold in crawl spaces, but we can also provide encapsulation to keep mold-causing moisture at bay.

Water & Flood Damage Equipment Rental

As the region’s premier water damage restoration company, we have a large stock of high-performance water damage tools available. If you’re looking to rent this equipment for your home or business following flooding or heavy rain, you can turn to us for dehumidifiers, air movers, and more.

Emergency Services

When heavy rain causes significant flooding or a pipe bursts, you need a water damage restoration company that can respond quickly to your needs. At We Restoration, we provide 24/7 emergency service to address sudden water infiltration and contain the damage.

COVID-19 Disinfection

We Restoration closely follows the guidelines set forth by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for COVID-19 disinfection. We offer specialized services for factories, warehouses, shops, offices, homes, and many other types of buildings to keep occupants safe.
