If you're worried that you might have mold in your home an inspection is a good idea, inspections are useful for more than analyzing a problem that already exists. Mold inspections can be more accurate and thorough than trying to find it all yourself. While not all mold is bad, it's a good idea to get rid of what you can, especially because mold may not be your biggest problem.
Consulting a Mold Inspector
Look for any company that is certified by the Mold Inspection Consulting and Remediation Organization, the National Organization of Remediators and Mold Inspectors or the Professional Mold Inspection Institute. Be cautious of any company that won't provide references, won't give you everything in writing or asks for full payment up front — these are usually signs of scams.

What to Expect From Mold Removal
When it comes to cleaning the mold from your home, many professionals will do more than just perform cleaning. Part of cleaning often entails finding the cause of the mold's presence in the first place, such as excess moisture, condensation or a leak, and some mold removers will even help you repair the problem. Cleaning mold can be a lengthy process, depending on how far the mold has spread, but a thorough cleaning generally means that the mold removers from a company like Griffin Contracting & Restoration are doing a proper job.Share

When my home was flooded last year, I was nearly in tears after surveying the damage. The carpets were soaked, the furniture was filthy and the house had a terrible odor. I didn't know how I was ever going to clean up the mess good enough so my home would be livable again. After speaking with my neighbor, whose home was also flooded, I found out about damage contractors. My name is Arlene Bell and I am here to sing the praises of the restoration crew that cleaned up my home. They worked tirelessly for days until every drop of water was gone. My home looks terrific and there are no signs that it was ever flooded. Read my blog to learn what you should and shouldn't do if you ever have emergency damage to your home.
