Mold Removal Company Information You Can Use

[ 2 ] July 30, 2010 |

Mold removal is one service you hope you never need. If you do need professional help, then that means your mold contamination problem is serious. No one wants to deal with that in a home or place of business. You should not hesitate to call a mold removal company if you really need one. However, there are some things to consider before placing that call.

First, think about whether or not you really need the help. These companies are generally for large mold infestations. A small bathroom with a few patches of mold does not require professional cleaning.

You should have the ability to handle a small job. Buy some rubber gloves and mold remover from a local store. Follow the instructions on the mold cleaner, and proceed to clean the room on your own.

If your problem is more than you can handle, then that is when you call for help. How do you know when help is necessary? Here are some clues. If the walls and ceiling are completely black with growths, then you need help.

If you or anyone in your home is sick from breathing the air, then you need help. Finally, call for help if more than one room is dripping in mold.

Contacting a Mold Removal Company

There are con artists in every business imaginable, including mold removal. If you research online, you will find horror stories from families conned into paying for unprofessional removal services. You can avoid becoming a statistic by doing your research first.

The best place to start is by asking for personal referrals. Ask among friends, family and coworkers. They might have experience with a particular company. The people you ask might even know other people with personal experiences. This is the best way to find out about a company’s reputation. In fact, you should try to get the name of two or three companies. That way, you have options about which one to choose.

Your next option is to search online for a local company. You can learn a lot about a company by searching online. Most company websites include just about everything you’d want to know. The services they offer, the prices, how they work and more is usually listed on a website.

You can also search online to see if anyone has anything bad to say about the company. Unsatisfied customers don’t mind talking, and they always talk on the internet.

An optional step is checking the company with the Better Business Bureau (BBB). If anyone has complained about the company, the complaint will be on file with the BBB. You can find out exactly what happened, why the customer complained and what the company did about it.

You want a reliable mold removal company that will do the job right. When you find a reliable company, give them a call. Explain your situation and go from there.

The company will probably send a representative out to inspect your home. This is the only way they can tell the true extent of your mold problem. From there, you should receive an estimate on how much time and money the job requires.

  1. Another way of mold removal is to know where does it grows and how to prevent them from coming back

    Hi, I noticed that when you mentioned mold removal companies you didn’t bother to mention using the phonebook. I know this should be a pretty obvious option but you’d be surprised at how many people don’t realize that you can find the sort of companies in your local Yellow Pages. I also know that you can always find a local company dealing in molds online. I live in an extremely small town were it’s possible to find a company that is willing to cleanup mold but you might not be able to find that company online since it’s a small mom and pop place.

    Another overlooked option is to get to know the businesses in your town on a personal level. Become friends with the owners or managers and it’s a great way to find out what companies are legit for cleaning up mold problems. Businesses like restaurants have probably dealt with mold at one time or another so they are your best option. When all else fails if you live near bigger city check there. Sometimes these companies are willing to forgo the travel expenses if the job is worth their time and effort.
