Mold Remediation Services
Concern about mold growth has increased as homes, schools and business owners have become better educated about the health risks of excessive mold exposure.
The EPA has identified some health risks that can range from allergic reaction, asthma or even worse. In most homes today, children tend to spend more time indoors which makes them more at risk for these types of afflictions. In addition, our elderly live a stationary lifestyle which also puts them at risk for contracting airborne illnesses.
Anew Kind of Clean can help eliminate this threat. Our IICRC certified experts will come to you with the experience, technology, and resources needed to identify mold problems where they exist, clean and restore the environment, and take measures to prevent the problem from reoccurring -- complete mold damage restoration.
Home and business owners can underestimate the severity of mold in their structures and the degree of difficulty involved in removing the mold. Simply cleaning with bleach will not kill it. Proper mold remediation requires a containment area and then removing the mold carefully and correctly to eliminate the spread of mold spores to other rooms. This may require removing moldy material and with reconstruction, returning the structure to like new condition. Mold remediation is best performed by trained professionals that understand the required processes and procedures needed for proper mold removal and containment.

Who should handle the clean-up mold issues?
Who should handle the cleanup depends on a number of factors. One consideration is the size of the mold problem and where the mold is located.
- If there has been a lot of water damage, and/or mold growth consult a certified company like Anew Kind Of Clean.
- If you already have a mold problem act quickly. Mold will damage what it grows on. The longer it grows, the more damage it can cause not just to your property but to you as well.
- If you suspect that the heating/ventilation/air conditioning (HVAC) system may be contaminated with mold (it is part of an identified moisture problem, for instance, or there is mold near the intake to the system), you should have the air ducts in your home cleaned, before taking further action. Do not run the HVAC system if you know or suspect that it is contaminated with mold - it could spread mold throughout your home or building.
- If the water and/or mold damage was caused by sewage or other related water, then call in a professional who has experience cleaning buildings damaged by contaminated water.
- If you have health concerns, consult a health professional before starting cleanup.
- Do not paint or caulk moldy surfaces. Completely clean mold and dry the surfaces before painting. Paint applied over moldy surfaces is likely to peel.
