Why You Hire a Mold Removal Specialist


There are several reasons why we do not recommend for homeowners to try and clean the mold themselves. Two of the top reasons are for safety and cross-contamination.  Homeowners do not have the proper safety equipment. Also, they do not know how to set up the proper containment to prevent the mold spores from spreading throughout the home to areas that were not contaminated to begin with. In addition, mold remediation professionals can clean hard to get areas, such as crawlspaces under your home, in the ductwork and behind walls and your attic. Mold spores can get into your HVAC system and can get recirculated throughout your home. If your ductwork is not cleaned it can continue to make you sick even if the area with mold has already been cleaned.
The cost for a mold remediation job can vary significantly, which is why it is necessary to come out to do a visual inspection to provide you with an estimate. There are numerous factors that can vary from home to home. Some mold removal companies only take care of the mold. The quote may be cheaper upfront, but if the moisture issue isn’t resolved, you may face a more severe problem down the road. Comprehensive Mold Management does all of the work start to finish. We take care of the moisture issue, remove the mold, and complete any other necessary work that is required.
Typically, cheaper quotes do not include a warranty. Our work may not be the cheapest, but we do the work correctly. We follow industry standard protocol, so any work we complete is covered with a lifetime warranty*. If you sell your home, our work is covered with a five year transferrable warranty*. Other companies may not follow the proper standards or protocol, having a need for less materials. Comprehensive Mold Management is fully insured, and CMM always uses the highest quality materials available to ensure the job is done correctly.

We understand no one really plans for a mold problem to occur in their home. Nonetheless, we recommend doing your research. In making your final decision, make sure you are comfortable with the people, their work ethic and warranty. Follow your instincts and go with your gut. If something feels off, it is probably for good reason. When taking care of a mold problem, it should be taken care of the right way the first time. Meaning, they also resolved the moisture issue. The longer you wait to take care of the problem, the more damage you will face down the road and the repairs will be more expensive to fix properly.
As a homeowner, you should feel comfortable letting the mold removal company you choose into your home, and know you will be in good hands. The sooner you take care of your mold problem, the sooner you and your family can go back to enjoying your lives. Your home will be much safer and a healthier environment for you and your loved ones.
