911 Restoration Virginia Beach owner, Hank Miller, ensures homeowners that his mold removal service is available to customers 365 days of the year.
A leaky roof, a pipe burst, or improper drainage can all result in undetected pockets of moisture, which may remain hidden for months creating conditions for mold growth.
This is why Hank recommends, “that homeowners should be actively checking for leaks and for surface mold. When it is on a wall or a tile, then it may be coming from behind the object or from a nearby source.”
Furthermore, “mold doesn’t wait; it is always growing, so if homeowners detect mold, then they should call us. We have a response time of 45 minutes and a promise of same day service,” Hank says.
A fast response time is how our mold removal Virginia Beach team brings homeowners a fresh start. Your second chance starts when you call 911 Restoration.
Mold Remediation: Great Support for Great People
When a Virginia Beach customer called in regards to mold growth in his newly purchased home. He relayed to us that it was covering a corner of his attic, and his first concern was what it would cost for someone to come and just look at it.
Our support staff assured him that 911 Restoration has him covered with a free home inspection.
After the phone call, our mold removal Virginia Beach team was there fast with mold tests, hazmat suits, gas masks, and an infrared camera.
The reason for the mold test was to ensure that the mold we were dealing with was safe, as some molds could secrete toxins. As it turns out our customer was dealing with a common type of fungus called Alternaria, a strain that makes allergies worse.
Following identification, we checked to for any signs of water damage. In an area such as Virginia Beach, rain can infiltrate a roof through patches, and the water could pool around attics and seep into the subfloor.
Our infrared cameras caught blue spots under his attic, which means there was trapped moisture under there. As it turns out his roof, during the rainy season, let water in, so it sat there unnoticed until the fungus started to become prominent.
We were able to dry the subfloor, and repair the roof. The restoration effort ensured the homeowner a new peace of mind, so he could live comfortably in his new home.
