Frequently Asked Questions

What causes mold?
Mold can be caused by a leak or by high levels of humidity, which is why bathrooms, basements, and crawlspaces are so commonly affected. The mold can quickly spread from one part of your home to another if it's not treated correctly. Hiring a mold removal company is a sensible option rather than attempting to fix the problem yourself.
How does black mold removal work?
Black mold can be harmful to your health, especially if the spores are disturbed when trying to remove it. A professional will be able to assess the affected areas, remove or clean them, and then dry the area and reseal it so the mold can't return.
How can I prevent mold coming back?
If you’re worried about mold returning to your home, it's essential to properly fix any leaks and dry up all damp areas thoroughly. Check with your mold remediation company about removing highly porous surfaces such as drywall, as it can be impossible to remove all mold from these and it may be better to replace them.
Will my homeowner's insurance cover the cost of mold remediation?
Your home insurance policy might cover the cost of mold removal if it has resulted from a major plumbing issue or another unpreventable emergency. However, if the mold has been caused by something that could have previously been addressed, such as a lack of proper ventilation in your bathroom or basement or existing damage to your roof, this might not be covered under your insurance.
