Mold Removal Services
Mold can appear in humid areas of your home or business and quickly spread to the entire building thanks to airborne spores. It is important to take action quickly if you believe there is mold in your business. You should look for a good mold removal service in your area.
Attempting to remove mold yourself can be tricky. If you fail to properly seal the room where the mold is present, you could cause airborne spores to be released and mold could start growing in other parts of your business. Besides, exposure to spores can be hazardous. One of the worst things people do is take items like furniture, books and clothing from a room where mold is present and move them to a clean room; now a room that was previously mold-free is also contaminated.
Choose a reliable mold testing service (Alpha Environmental) and have us inspect your business. Ask how long it will take to get the test results back. Inquire if that mold testing company also performs mold remediation. Are their inspectors licensed according to state law? Is the company listed by name in the local phone book? Do they display license numbers on all their materials?
Florida Statute 468.8419 prohibits “a mold assessor, or a company that employs a mold assessor, to “perform or offer to perform any mold remediation to a structure on which the mold assessor or the mold assessor’s company provided a mold assessment within the last 12 months.”Florida Statute 468.8419 became effective July 1, 2010 and forbids the same company from testing and remediating mold at the same property.
Alpha Environmental is an testing, assessment and consulting firm – they do NOT offer remediation. A good mold assessment firm should offer you the truth about what’s going on in your home of business. Their job is to enhance the remediation – to actually tell you if you need remediation and what needs to be done. Then when the job is done, they will come back to re-inspect and retest to be sure the job was done right.
DON’T BE A VICTIM of salesmen who test your property for mold and then attempt to recommend the work that needs to be performed by their company. Florida’s new law prohibits such actions.
Simply said, we are Florida licensed and insured mold assessors and analysts of indoor environmental problems. Primarily, we test for mold and other allergies which may be affecting you and your family. There are many inspectors that offer some of the same services we do.
There are real differences!
