Mold Inspections & Treatment
ABC Cleaning and Restoration offers professional mold testing, inspection, and removal. Our thorough inspections include a visual inspection of the property focusing on areas such as bathrooms, kitchens, laundry rooms, and crawl space- anywhere water is normally present. Then we inspect with moisture detection devices and thermal imaging cameras along exterior walls. An exterior inspection is conducted to look for potential issues that could lead to moisture intrusions; whereas, a visual inspection of the crawlspace or attic if needed.

Characteristics of Mold Testing
Air sample test for mold – This sample is collected via an air pump and a spore trap. All homes have some levels of mold in the air and these samples determine if the airborne levels in the home are normal or if elevated levels are present. These samples can be collected from any conditioned space in the home and are judged against an outside control sample.
Surface sample test for mold – Surface samples can be taken of any area where visual discoloration or growth is observed. This is done by using a swab or tape lift. This helps when determining the source of airborne contamination levels.
After samples are collected, they are sent to a 3rd party laboratory for analysis. Results are typically available within three business days, and the full report is provided from our mold inspection with recommendations.
Tips to Avoid Mold Problems in Your Home or Business
Repair plumbing leaks or water intrusions immediately upon discovery and dry all impacted building materials.
Maintain indoor humidity levels to less than 60%.
Keep gutters clean and free of debris.
Regularly inspect your attic and crawlspace to identify any water leaks or moisture intrusions.
Trust your nose – If you smell a mold or mildew odor, investigate further and find the source.
Ask questions and seek help from a trusted source for information.
The problem will not go away if ignored. In most cases, delays lead to larger problems that are more costly to correct.

Mold Removal & FREE Inspection
A mold can grow on many surfaces, on porous materials such as drywall or concrete, or within living organisms, and in decaying organic matter. The process of mold removal depends largely on the areas affected and the size of the mold exposure.
A visual inspection and evaluation of the structure should be done to determine the potential scope of damage and the cause and origin of the mold problem. It may be determined that a mold test is needed to get a better understanding of the scope of mold damage.
Mold testing will provide a protocol for mold removal which will be used to help estimate the scope and cost of your project.
Mold growth can begin in as little as 24 – 48 hours after water damage has occurred. Thorough drying and water removal under controlled conditions is important to eliminate the unnecessary spreading of the harmful spores if they develop or are already present.
