Fire Damage

The process of fire restoration can be very involved. Private homeowners and companies can often be devastated by the damage caused by this kind of event. One aspect that gives peace of mind, knowing when the right professional has been hired. That is one of the reasons why it is important to hire a company that is associated with the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC).

The first step in the process is to clean up as much of the existing area as possible. If the area is not immediately cleaned, soot residue and permanent damage can be left behind. If the homeowner or business owner does the initial cleaning, it is important to follow these steps. When cleaning, always use personal protective equipment and open the area for proper ventilation. Clean from the ceilings to the floors and vacuum all floors and upholstery. Wash any items that are able to be laundered. Clean the outside with a pressure washer if available.

Mold Remediation

500 fungal species have been described as human pathogens that can cause infections.
The overall diversity of fungi is considerable. For example, the genus Aspergillus has at least 185 known species.
Molds spread and reproduce by making spores, which are small and lightweight, able to travel through air, capable of resisting dry, adverse environmental conditions, and capable of surviving a long time. Some molds are capable of producing toxins (sometimes called mycotoxins) under specific environmental conditions.
Although molds can be found almost anywhere, they need moisture, nutrients, little or no light, and little or no airflow to grow. Substantial indoor mold growth is virtually synonymous with the presence of moisture inside the building.
Extensive water damage after major hurricanes and floods increases the likelihood of mold contamination in homes & buildings.
