There are few things worse than finding out your home has a mold problem. What is meant to be your safe haven now has a problem that not only negatively impacts the value and integrity of the house, but compromises the health and safety of everyone who lives in the home. Whether you’ve already experienced symptoms of mold-related illness, or have realized that your own attempts at bleaching are not solving the worrisome stains on your walls, here’s what you need to know to hire the right expert to get the job done as quickly as possible, so you can go back to enjoying your home as the sanctuary it’s meant to be.
What Is the Method of Mold Testing Used?
There are mold remediation companies that believe an air sample quality test is sufficient to determine the nature of your mold problem. However, I believe a more extensive evaluation is necessary to understand the true extent of the problem and allow for proper treatment to be put into place. Because of our company’s background as the nation’s first to conduct testing for and treat residential radon, we take the scientific analysis of discovering the full nature of a problem seriously. A full physical sweep and physical samples are necessary to create a full test to know the true extent of a mold problem. It’s necessary to know this before the mold can be most effectively treated.
What Are Your Accreditations?
It’s important that the professionals that you choose to solve your mold problem have the proper licensing and insurance, as treating mold can be a complex process. We are a Better Business Bureau accredited business that maintains an A+ rating. We are accredited with the American Council for Accredited Certification, formerly American Indoor Air Quality Council. We have insurance to fully protect are clients work closely with government organizations, including the EPA, as well as the top industry associations to make sure that we are always giving our clients the most up-to-date treatments, information and solutions for all environmental concerns that property owners may experience.
How Much Experience Do You Have?
We have been in business since the 1960s and have been operating under the name RDS, and treating homes for residential environmental concerns since 1986. What is more is that though we have achieved great success in our business, we have chosen not to franchise, but to maintain a single office based in Broomfield, Colorado. Knowing the geology and other environmental concerns of our local area intimately allows us to provide our customers with the most comprehensive and knowledge-based treatments for any environmental concerns that they face as property owners.
Do You Contain the Treatment Site?
It’s vital that workers wear proper suits and the site of treatment is fully contained so that cross-contamination is not possible, otherwise you may find yourself with a mold problem that has spread. Our experience dealing with radon has given us the experience to contain treatments to the highest standards.
What Is Your Treatment Protocol?
Many mold remediation companies spray the mold with toxins to kill them. This can lead to a health hazard that is just as dangerous as the mold itself. It’s important that mold specialists fully remove the problem by removing the mold from your home.
