Affordable Mold Removal Services in Harper Woods MI

At Complete Environmental Solutions LLC is the leading mold removal service provider, we have honed our strategies to deliver professional excellence and ensure optimal results. Our experienced team follows a systematic approach and strategies to tackle mold-related issues effectively, including:

MOLD INSPECTION: UNCOVERING HIDDEN MOLD PROBLEMS

Mold inspection is a crucial step in identifying and addressing mold problems within a property. While some mold growth may be visible, there are often hidden areas where mold can thrive, such as behind walls, under flooring, or within HVAC systems. A professional mold inspection focuses on uncovering these hidden mold problems to ensure comprehensive remediation and prevent further damage.

THOROUGH INSPECTION:

We conduct a comprehensive inspection of the property to identify areas affected by mold growth, including hidden or hard-to-reach spaces.

AIR QUALITY TESTING:

Our team performs air quality testing to measure the concentration of mold spores in the indoor environment. 

MOISTURE DETECTION:

We utilize advanced moisture detection tools, such as moisture meters and thermal imaging cameras, to identify sources of excess moisture that contribute to mold growth. 

CONTAINMENT STRATEGIES:

To prevent the spread of mold spores during the removal process, we implement effective containment strategies. This includes sealing off affected areas, using negative air machines, and establishing barriers to limit cross-contamination.

ADVANCED REMEDIATION TECHNIQUES:

Our experts employ advanced mold removal techniques tailored to the specific needs of each case. This may involve using abrasive cleaning methods, dry ice blasting, or eco-friendly mold removal agents. We choose the most appropriate method based on the type of mold, the affected materials, and the extent of contamination.

PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT (PPE):

We prioritize the safety of our team and clients by using proper personal protective equipment, including respiratory masks, gloves, protective clothing, and eye protection.

PROPER DISPOSAL:

We adhere to industry guidelines and regulations for the proper disposal of mold-infested materials. Our team ensures that contaminated materials are safely removed and disposed of without causing further contamination.

POST-REMEDIATION VERIFICATION:

After completing the mold removal process, we conduct a thorough post-remediation assessment. This may include additional air quality testing, visual inspections, and clearance certificates to ensure the successful removal of mold and the restoration of a healthy environment.

Moisture control is the key to mold control. That is why we also recommend the following strategies to PREVENT future mold formation to our clients:

  • Take immediate action to address leaks or spills promptly. By drying wet or damp materials within 24-48 hours of an incident, you can prevent the growth of mold in most cases.
  • Regularly clean and repair roof gutters to avoid water accumulation and potential moisture problems.
  • Ensure that air conditioning drip pans are kept clean and drain lines are unobstructed to maintain proper functioning.
  • Maintain indoor humidity below 60% if feasible, ideally between 30% and 50% relative humidity, to discourage mold growth.
  • Properly vent appliances that generate moisture, such as clothes dryers, stoves, and kerosene heaters.
  • Utilize air conditioners and/or dehumidifiers when necessary to control indoor humidity, even when the home is unoccupied (e.g., during work hours or vacations).
  • When showering, run the exhaust fan or open a window to enhance ventilation and reduce moisture accumulation.
  • When practical, increase ventilation or air movement by opening doors and windows, especially when the air conditioning is not in use. Fans can also be employed as needed.

Visual Assessment

The inspector carefully examines the property, looking for visible signs of mold growth, water damage, or musty odors. They check areas prone to moisture accumulation, such as bathrooms, basements, and attics.

Air Sampling

Mold spores can be present in the air, even if there are no visible signs of mold growth. Air sampling involves collecting samples from the indoor environment to measure the concentration of mold spores. These samples are then analyzed in a laboratory to determine the types and levels of mold present.

Moisture Detection

Moisture is a critical factor in mold growth. Inspectors use moisture meters and thermal imaging cameras to detect hidden sources of moisture within walls, ceilings, and other building materials.

Testing Hidden Areas

Mold can grow in hidden areas that are not easily accessible. Inspectors may use borescopes or other tools to examine wall cavities, ductwork, or crawl spaces. 

LABORATORY ANALYSIS

The collected air samples undergo meticulous analysis in a reputable laboratory. Trained professionals use microscopy techniques such as direct microscopic examination and DNA-based methods like polymerase chain reaction (PCR). This rigorous analysis enables us to accurately identify and quantify the mold spores, providing you with precise information about the types and concentrations of mold present in your tested air samples.

 

COMPARISON TO BASELINE OR OUTDOOR SAMPLES

To give you a comprehensive understanding of your indoor mold levels, we compare the results to baseline samples taken from unaffected areas within your property and outdoor samples from the surrounding environment. By comparing indoor samples to these references, we can assess whether the mold levels indoors are within acceptable ranges or require remediation.

INTERPRETATION OF RESULTS

Our team of qualified professionals, experienced in mold analysis, provides a thorough interpretation of the testing results. We generate detailed reports that explain the findings, including the types of mold identified, their concentration levels, and any associated health risks. With this valuable information in hand, we can offer expert recommendations for mold remediation or further investigation, ensuring the best course of action for your specific situation.

PROFESSIONAL MOLD REMEDIATION METHODOLOGIES

  • Containment: We establish proper barriers to prevent mold spores from spreading during remediation.
  • HEPA Vacuuming: We use HEPA vacuums to effectively remove loose mold spores from surfaces and the air.
  • Removal of Mold-Infested Materials: We safely remove and dispose of mold-contaminated materials following proper protocols.
  • Surface Cleaning and Disinfection: We use specialized agents and techniques to clean and disinfect mold-affected surfaces.
  • Air Scrubbing: We utilize air scrubbers with HEPA filters to purify the air and remove mold spores.
  • Drying and Dehumidification: We thoroughly dry affected areas and address moisture issues to prevent future mold growth.
  • Encapsulation: We apply specialized products to seal mold on structural surfaces to prevent further growth.
  • Post-Remediation Verification: We conduct final inspections and testing to ensure successful mold removal.
