A home, office or other space compromised by water will likely require mold removal in Boca Raton. However, most homeowners are hesitant to move forward with this service as they are unsure as to whether it is truly necessary. Furthermore, most people do not know much about mold removal in Boca Raton so they shy away from paying the little bit of money necessary to restore their living space. Below, we provide a quick look at some of the most important questions to ask of those who perform mold removal in Boca Raton.
What Types of Mold Testing do You Perform?
Mold is difficult to see yet it often carries a musty odor. If you are even slightly worried your home has mold, do not take a chance and assume everything will be fine. Spend for professional mold testing and you will know exactly what types (if any) of mold are lurking in your living space. The best mold removal specialists in Boca Raton test for a variety of different types of mold.
Comprehensive mold removal in Boca Raton mandates the taking of indoor air readings to determine what types of mold are present and where they are located. Once the initial mold assessment test is conducted, there is enough information available for truly comprehensive removal. Ideally, the service you hire will also perform a follow-up test after the removal is performed to ensure the vast majority of the mold is no longer present in your living space.
Are You Licensed and Certified?
Each state has its own unique regulations and laws that must be adhered to. If the mold removal specialist in question does not have the proper license and certification, move on to the next candidate. Do not stop searching until you find a mold removal crew with the proper qualifications. You should have no doubt the crew you hire is capable of performing in-depth mold removal in a truly safe manner. Though a license and certification do not automatically guarantee high-quality service, these credentials provide assurance the removal specialist has the experience and knowledge necessary to get the job done right. Obtaining the proper certification shows the company in question has the expertise necessary to eliminate mold within your home while simultaneously mitigating health risks.
How Will I Know When You Arrive at my Property?
Though this might sound like a silly question, it is perfectly legitimate. The mold removal company's employees should don company uniforms. It will also help if the mold technicians show up in a vehicle featuring the company's logo. Ask the company the question how their technicians will prove they work for the business so you can confirm their identity upon arrival. Otherwise, you would have to run the risk of opening your doors to anyone who claims to perform mold removal in Boca Raton.
What Types of Methods are Used to Remove the Mold?
Find out if certain chemicals or methods will be used to eliminate mold from your living or working space. The EPA reports no single product exists that can be sprayed directly on a surface to cause mold to disappear. The bottom line is mold must be physically detached from the surface it covers. There are numerous industry methods for mold removal in Boca Raton, some of which work better than others in certain situations. If the company in question states it uses bleach or sprays that eliminate mold upon contact, cross them of your list. Strictly fungicide and antimicrobial mold removal supplies should be used to get rid of mold in your home.
How Many Mold Removal Projects Have You Handled?
This is one of the more important questions to ask. If the supposed mold removal gurus seem inexperienced, do not provide them with your business without performing additional research. There is nothing wrong with requesting references from current and former customers. When in doubt, lean on the group that has performed mold removal in Boca Raton for several years or decades as opposed to the industry's newer companies. Hire the most experienced mold removal specialists and you will heighten the chances of success.
Are You Willing to Provide a Written Estimate?
You have every right to ask for a written estimate. This estimate should be provided well ahead of the scheduled removal and include every service to be rendered. Do not accept a verbal estimate provided over the phone. The mold removal specialist should be willing to drive on over to your home or other property, inspect the property and provide an estimate in writing.
