Never try to treat mold by yourself. just wiping a black spot will not remove mold.
One of the best ways to care of a mold problem is to not touch it until Complete Restoration Florida comes by and evaluates the extent of growth. Once mold is disturbed it can send a unhealthy and unnatural amount of spores through property which can accelerate the mold growth in a new area. Dealing with 1 mold issue is hard enough as it is, but have to deal with multiple issues can become hectic and expensive. We have certified staff for mold removal and remediation with credentials from the IICRC (institute for Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification), and our technicians are up-to-date and trained in the most current remediation protocols. Where required, we can recommend and/or collaborate with other industry professionals, such as industrial hygienists, engineers, and consultants for protocol preparation and testing both pre and post remediation. Doing so ensures the work we perform is completely insured and the remediation is entirely successful. This protects you, your patrons and employees’ health and safety in the environment they work in. We adhere to all OSHA, CDPHE, EPA, and IICRC standards. Anyone that sets foot on your property will be fully licensed and insured.
Trained staff in OSHA approved attire is the only way to remove bacterial growth. Depending on each situation we might use ammonium, hypoclorite, thymol, or sodium carbonite to eliminate all spores. We always offer our customers a complimentary fogging for medium to large areas to help penetrate all areas of the surface and air.

There are many different types of molds. There are 11 strands of bacteria that affect humans negatively. Black mold (stachbotrys) is the most common. Mold LOVES moisture and starts eating at whatever organic surface it is on such as wood, paint, paper etc. We always recommend keeping your humidity level at home under 60% to help prevent moisture build up. Many times a homeowner has a repair done in the bathroom and the bathroom vent was not plugged in, or new insulation is improperly installed which leads to poor attic ventilation. Always make sure you have a good warranty from whatever contractor you use.
