Know your options when it comes to black mold damage!

 

Confusion and fear can be two driving emotions when you’re in need of professional mold damage mitigation services.  Obviously those aren’t two emotions that play a positive effect on the process and your decision making.  So we feel like one of the best things we can do is educate people in your position so that you have some answers to your questions.  Here’s some common questions we get…

 

What if I think I have black mold but I’m not sure?

 

There are 2 parties typically involved in mold situations, and each plays an important role.  If you’re not sure if you have toxic mold in your property, you’ll want to contact an environmental hygienist.  They take environmental samples throughout your home and send them off to a certified lab to determine what level of black mold is present.  Some amount of mold spores is present in virtually every environment, but if those levels become elevated that is when you begin having problems.

If you know you have black mold because you can see it, that’s when you call a certified mold removal company in San Jose, CA!

 

I’m constantly sick, is that because of mold?

 

Mold-exposureIt could be.  In fact, that’s one of the things that is commonly found in sick homes.  Mycotoxins are what make mold a problem for our bodies.  They’re toxic, as the name suggests, and they can cause a wide range of health problems. Some people begin to experience painful skin rashes.  Others are constantly experiencing headaches, nausea, or dizziness.  In severe cases, respiratory illnesses can cause complications that make you really sick.

Mycotoxins suppress your immune system, meaning that you are susceptible to any random virus floating around.

 

What does it cost to have black mold removed?

 

Every job will be different.  Some homes or commercial buildings that have very severe mold throughout the property can be very experience to fix.  That’s because we usually have to completely gut the structure and rebuild.  Generally speaking, we see costs vary between $3,000-$6,000 for an average sized project.

 

If I hire professionals, how do I know I’ll be mold-free?

 

environmental-test-mold“Mold-free” isn’t really attainable.  Almost any environment is going to have some level of mold spores in it.  Again, that’s ok and at low levels is completely safe.  So any mold remediation contractor must mitigate the loss so that the property is at normal, low levels of mold.

You can get assurances that is the case by requesting an independent environmental sample at the completion of the project.  They’ll be able to assure you that the job was done correctly!

 

Will insurance cover my expenses?

 

It’s not likely.  In very rare instances, we are able to help our customers file a claim successfully for the cost of mold removal, but it’s usually the case that the homeowner or business owner will be responsible for the costs.

 

Can’t I just get rid of the mold myself?

 

mold-damageIf it’s a really small area (a few square feet) you may be able to safely and effectively get rid of the mold assuming you have the right safety equipment.  But in reality, what usually happens when people try scrubbing some bleach on mold is they end up kicking up the spores and spreading them elsewhere in the property.  In other words, they make it worse, and in doing so, put themselves at risk.

Any amount of toxic mold damaged should be remediated by professionals.  If you have mold, we hope that you will call us and let us provide you with an educated opinion on what you’re up against and explain all of your options so you can make the right decision for your unique circumstances!
