Maryland Mold Removal

Available 24/7 for Emergency Mold Cleanup in Virginia, Maryland & Washington D.C.

Mold is a very serious health hazard and can quickly become a problem for any home or business. When water is introduced, whether from a plumbing leak or after a storm, there’s a short window of time to get the area dry before mold starts to set in—usually 24 to 48 hours. During humid weather, buildings with poor ventilation may not even need a direct source of water for mold to grow.

Property Solutions is available 24/7 for emergencies. Contact us to request a mold inspection in Maryland, Northern Virginia, or Washington, D.C.

The Process for Mold Removal

Mold eats away at the surfaces on which it grows, weakening your home’s structure and potentially leading to much larger problems if not remedied. Mold can also be harmful to your health; if inhaled for too long, a mold may cause mild skin and eye irritation or something as serious as long-term respiratory complications. If you suspect that your home or business is infected with mold, it’s important to contact a mold removal service as soon as possible.

We begin our mold removal process by conducting a thorough inspection of your home or office building for mold infested areas. Once we identify if and where black mold is present, we act quickly to mitigate the damage.

Our mold removal process has five phases:

  • Containment: Our mold specialists will seal off the moldy area from the rest of the structure.
  • Air filtration: This process prevents the mold from spreading through the building’s HVAC system. This is important because air circulation helps to dry moldy areas, but we don’t want to worsen the problem by dispersing spores.
  • Contamination removal: We remove contaminated material, including drywall, insulation, and any objects that have been infected with mold.
  • Cleaning: We meticulously clean and dry all furniture, surfaces, and flooring in the area.
  • Restoration: We restore the mold-infected area to its pre-disaster condition.

How to Prevent Mold

Mold grows and thrives in humidity. Maryland receives its fair share of hot and humid summer days, which makes it crucial for homeowners and business owners to know how to stop mold before it begins.

Don’t view mold as an inevitable issue that you’ll eventually have to deal with. Although there’s no way to completely mold-proof your home or business, there are many easy precautions you can take to make it hard for mold to grow. Simply put, the best way you can prevent mold from growing is to get rid of extra dampness. You can do this in a variety of ways:

  • Watch for standing water. Immediately clean up any spills that occur to prevent liquid from seeping into your carpet or flooring. Inspect your basement for any puddles of water. Standing water in your basement and other areas of your home is a strong indicator that you already have a leak, so get the leak(s) fixed as soon as possible before mold can grow.
  • Dry off wet surfaces. Taking a moment to dry your kitchen counter after cooking or cleaning and to wipe down your shower after you bathe are easy ways to get rid of extra moisture.
  • Keep your indoor relative humidity in check. Regulating your home’s interior humidity at a good level can play a big role in keeping mold at bay. Running your air conditioner not only keeps you comfortable on hot days but eliminates extra humidity in the home, leaving mold with nothing to cling to.
  • Clean your gutters. Clogged gutters can cause a myriad of water damage problems, and where there’s water damage, there’s room for mold to grow. Be sure to clear your gutters of leaves every now and then to make sure they’re doing their job.

Identifying Mold

You might do all you can to prevent mold from growing, but how do you know when you have it? Mold, unfortunately, likes to grow in hidden, damp places, like in your basement, under your sink, and behind your refrigerator. This can make it hard to locate, but you’ll know mold when you see it.

Mold looks fuzzy in appearance and is often yellow, black, or brown. It can look like a big stain creeping along your wall or other surfaces. You don’t have to rely on just your eyes to detect mold. If you notice a musty or weird smell in areas of your home, start looking around for mold. If you spot mold, even if it does not look like much, contact an expert mold removal service immediately.

Choose Property Solutions for Experienced Mold Inspection & Removal

If you try to fix your mold damage yourself, you may make the problem worse by further contaminating different parts of your home. It’s also possible to clean a surface, but not remove the mold that may be hiding behind or inside a structure. While it’s difficult to remove every trace of mold, you can count on our restoration services to bring your home back to its previous condition while keeping your family safe.
