RestorationMaster Mold Remediation in Arlington, VA
Mold spores need a source of moisture, as well as an organic food source, to start growing which makes water damage a major cause of mold. Once mold starts growing, it needs immediate attention because it will continue to spread throughout the home or building and cause extensive damage to the affected surfaces until it is removed. The longer mold is allowed to spread within your home, the more likely it is for those within your home to experience the negative health effects associated with exposure. The technicians of RestorationMaster will prevent the contamination from spreading any further and completely remove the mold growth using the best cleaning products and equipment of the industry. We also make sure that our technicians are protected with personal protective equipment (PPE). Our mold removal services include these steps:

Mold Damage Tips for Arlington, VA
Mold will not grow without a moisture source and food source, but it is excess moisture that is most responsible for increasing the risk of mold growth in a home or building. In fact, controlling the moisture level is the most effective way to prevent mold growth. You should routinely check the walls and ceilings throughout your home for excess moisture or condensation and keep these surfaces dry. If they are already showing signs of mold growth, clean them with a solution of water and a mild detergent and make sure to dry the area. You must find and fix the source of the moisture as well or you will have consistent mold issues.
While property damage is a major concern when it comes to mold growth, you cannot forget about the potential health effects from mold exposure. People in homes and buildings affected by mold are at risk for allergic reactions such as coughing, wheezing, itchy eyes and throat, nasal congestion, and skin irritation. Prolonged exposure to mold can cause more serious reactions like fever, respiratory infections, and other breathing problems. There doesn’t have to be active mold growth for your health to be in danger as water damaged buildings (WDB) likely contain harmful toxins and inflammagens such as bacteria, mycobacteria, fungi, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), actinomycetes, and others according to the World Health Organization.
Mold remediation should not be attempted as a DIY project because mold is difficult to remove without the right methods and equipment and trying to remove it yourself puts you at a higher risk for negative health effects. Contact RestorationMaster immediately to handle any mold growth that you find in your home or building in Arlington, VA. We use the most effective testing and remediation methods of the industry to remove all mold growth and we will keep it contained to minimize the risk of negative health effects.

Trifect Mold Remediation in Arlington, VA
Most mold remediation service providers use mold removal methods that involve removing drywall to find hidden mold colonies. These invasive methods not only create a mess in your home, but they are also expensive because of the labor required to remove and replace the drywall. RestorationMaster uses a new method of mold remediation called Trifect in conjunction with the InstaScope testing system to find and remove mold without removing the drywall in your home. After testing every room of the home or building with the InstaScope testing system to discover the full extent of the growth, we remove the mold with the Trifect mold remediation method which includes these steps:
- Surface application: We use a proprietary topical solution to remove mold from the affected surfaces.
