I Think I Might Have Mold

8/23/2018 (Permalink)

Help I think I might have mold! When a customer calls with a concern about mold our first question is do you visually see the mold. If the customer states that they do not and only smell a musty odor we refer them to use a qualified Indoor Air Quality/ Environmental Professional. This specialist will be able to determine if there are elevated mold spores. If the customer states yes, there is something visible they see our next question is what year their structure was built. If a customer house is built in the early 80’s or earlier, we recommend getting an asbestos testing. Unfortunately, we require this testing to be performed before an onsite inspection. Testing companies usually have the asbestos results within 24 hours. If the house contains asbestos, then an abatement company will need to be contacted to perform removal of affected materials. For the houses that do not contain asbestos SERVPRO of Thousand Oaks can perform an onsite inspection for estimations of cost. Every job varies depending on the extent of mold remediation. We always recommend checking with your insurance company to see if you do have mold coverage. Most of all don’t worry SERVPRO Thousand Oaks is here to help you every step of the way.
