The updated offerings were initiated to provide homeowners with fast and effective solutions to mold damage. They employ only highly trained, professional, and licensed technicians to carry out every project to deliver quality customer care.

According to experts, mold inspection and removal are vital not only in prolonging the life of a building’s structure but in protecting the health of the residents that dwell in it.

Mold is a naturally occurring living substance and is necessary for the breakdown of natural waste. However, its presence inside a home is unwelcome. It can be found in consistently damp and moisture-rich areas, such as basements, floorboards, and other places where water damage may be present.

While most molds may be harmless, there are some types, like black mold (Stachybotrys Chartarum), that are toxic. They release airborne mycotoxins that cause serious health problems. When inhaled, these may trigger coughing, sneezing, eye irritation, headaches, and rashes. Long exposure to the substance may cause severe reactions such as nose bleeds, nausea, vomiting, and even internal bleeding.

The Floor Co. offers thorough inspections as the first step in mold removal. When mold is observed, it is typically just the tip of the iceberg—mold usually proliferates in dark and damp places that are out of sight, such as inside walls and under floors.

Once all areas with mold have been identified, these are tested and carefully removed. Mold removal involves a delicate process. It is not the same as simply demolishing the affected area, as spores may become airborne.

The company’s technicians use specialized engineering controls to contain and collect mold spores. All tainted materials are taken apart, bagged, and disposed of. Surfaces are sanded and vacuumed while HEPA-filtered air scrubbers rid the air of remaining spores. A quantitative air sampling is done at the end of the process to verify the success of the removal.
