A homeowner contacted us, as mold kept returning in his home despite multiple previous remediation attempts. He knew that water was coming in from the back of his house and that it had been an issue for about forty years. We asked him why he chose us instead of the other company, and he said we could better explain why mold was growing. The company he had used previously did not provide any guidance on how to address the water issues. They told him to “fix it”, so he sought our assistance to better help him. He knew we could give him a plan and a list of trusted contractors to help permanently fix his home’s water issues. This would be very helpful for him.
When you are choosing a contractor to help with your mold issues, it’s important that they will help identify and solve the problem, not just treat the symptoms. Mold can have many different causes, so it’s important to work with a remediator who will identify the source of the issue and prevent further damage. How did this problem come about in the first place? What needs to be done to make sure it doesn’t happen again? Your remediator should answer these questions for you. With the right advice and a plan in place, you can ensure that your home is protected from mold.
