The formation of mold in a home can be hazardous to your health and everyone around it. In some cases mold is not easily visible but could affect the air quality and structural integrity of the affected material. Property Craft has experienced mold growth remediation projects through water leaks, unrecognized flooding, poor ventilation, and condensation; both indoors and outdoors. Ingesting mold spores throughout the day can increase fatigue, irritate your lungs, and even worsen asthma. Whether you have a compromised immune system, allergies, or no issues at all we are huge advocates for ensuring you are breathing quality air in your home. Property Craft is a licensed Mold remediation expert, call us immediately to assess the loss and get your property back to safer conditions.
Property Craft offers full coverage Mold Remediation services to ensure we not only remove the affected materials but also identify the source, offer solutions, and ensure the air quality is the best its ever been in the affected area. Our certified mold technicians are trained to assess the loss and properly contain the area to ensure there is no cross contamination during the mold remediation project. We understand that many homeowners find “DIY” processes of cleaning Mold in their homes. While this may visually aid the situation, you are possibly agitating the microbial contents thus aerosolizing spores in the area you are cleaning. This process also does not permanently rid the mold in the area but rather bandages the issue to an inevitable return.
We utilize the latest infrared technology to help pin point the affected area of your property. It is vital to locate the source of the loss as well as knowing where the water has traveled. Our IR Camera not only saves us time but ensures that there is no other affected areas unknown to you. These quick reference points allows us to assess the loss without needing demolition.
Our goal is always to salvage any affected contents that there may be. We will move any items that may require mitigating and work as fast as we can to protect your property. We also respect your privacy and ensure that we have appropriate permission to access areas that is necessary. It is your decision to gather some of your items prior to commencing work, please note that if we encounter illegal items or activities we are forced to alert the authorities. It is the homeowners responsibility to remove all items that they do not want us to see or handle, for any valuable items left onsite please notify our team and we will ensure to fill out a valuable content sheet.
Salvageable – This specification includes items that have either been unaffected or can be cleaned and saved.
Non-Salvageable – This specification is designated in one of two ways. The first designation would be if an item is completely damaged and cannot repaired or cleaned (i.e physically burned or charred items). The second designation would be items that might be saved but require multiple processes to clean/repair, the carrier may determine that it would cost less to replace an item rather than pay for multiple attempts to clean.
Property Craft will ensure that all items are documented accordingly as well as provide a list for both the homeowner and carrier. We will bill for the time to generate the list and the time to input the list into an insurance approved format. As for rentals if you have tenants present and their contents have been damaged they can remove content themselves or Property Craft can remove content for an additional charge to the homeowner (Dependent on whether the tenant has Rental Insurance or not).
Here are a couple types of content that have been frequently asked about:
Neither the EPA or other Federal Agency has set limits for Mold or Mold Spores. There is NO STANDARD for Compliance because mold is a naturally occurring material, so the goal is to reduce or eliminate harmful spores and reduce general quantity.
We do follow the IICRC (Institute of Inspection, Cleaning & Restoration) to ensure that we are a master of our craft this includes:
• S500, Standard and Reference Guide for Professional WATER DAMAGE restoration
• S520, Standard and Reference Guide for Professional MOLD restoration
An initial test of the current environment sets the parameters of the remediation, it will display the amount of microbial spores present in the area. To avoid liability or collusion Property Craft always uses a third party testing company to identify the types of strains to determine procedures. A Clearance Test will show a significant reduction on common strain and little to no present spores for HARMFUL spores.
Did you know that there are over 100,000 Strains of Mold & Fungi and using bleach can disrupt surfaces and spread spores into the air adding moisture to mold thus providing more resources for growth. It can change color of mold and make finding the source more difficult and bleach can damage woods and other surfaces. Mixed with ammonia, it creates a DEADLY GAS!
