Rehoboth Residents: Do You Need a Mold Inspection or Mold Testing?

7/9/2016 (Permalink)

This Rehoboth home had a severe mold problem before SERVPRO of Taunton/Mansfield did the Mold Remediation.

Mold Inspection Vs. Mold Testing

At SERVPRO of Taunton/Mansfield, inspecting for mold is a standard part of what we do. We know the signs to look for and how to identify a problem. Once we detect signs of mold, we search for the cause. After determining the source of the moisture, we begin the process of fixing the problem. If there are no visible signs of mold, but there are some symptoms, allergens for example, the homeowner can choose to have their house tested for mold. In this case, we recommend that they call in an unbiased, third party to do the testing. This eliminates any doubt or questions about the test results and makes for a good system of checks and balances. At SERVPRO of Taunton/Mansfield, we sell our services based on information and not scare tactics.

What to consider when choosing a company to remove mold from your home

Step 1: Choosing a reputable company to treat a mold issue is as important as using the right process to eradicate the mold spores. Look for a company that is experienced and trained in mold remediation. Is the company certified and do they require their employees to receive on-going training to stay on top of the most updated techniques for mold remediation? At SERVPRO of Taunton/Mansfield, we are professionals that are trained and certified and are equipped with the knowledge to restore your property.

Step 2: Check to make sure the company you are hiring has insurance and not just worker’s compensation. Any reputable company will hold pollution insurance, since mold can be an environmental issue. Can the company do more than just treat your mold problem? Do they have the resources and licensures to do the necessary reconstruction work or will you have to hire a separate contractor for the part of the project? We hold a General Contractor License #: CS-108357

Step 3: Find out if your mold and water damage are covered under your homeowner’s insurance policies.

Step 4: Finally, don’t let price drive your decision. The cheapest isn't always the best choice and neither is the most expensive.
