    Mold Clean Up in Ogden and Surrounding Areas

    Mold growth in your home or business may be the sign of serious underlying structural issues. When you see or smell mold in your space, this is not the time for a DIY project. Call The Disaster Company to find and remove mold at the source. Our experts are highly trained and certified to detect the cause of mold and eliminate its spread.

    Mold refers to fungi that grow in the form of multi-cellular, thread-like structures. Mold is the product of lingering moisture from water that is absorbed by wood, drywall, furniture, or flooring when water enters a structure. Black mold and other toxic fungi can be dangerous to your health, causing respiratory distress, brain fog, and other symptoms of allergic reaction.

    It is important to locate the source of the mold overgrowth rather than to simply remove visible mold or clean affected carpets. Behind walls or under floorboards, mold may be literally eating away at drywall or structural beams that ultimately could need to be replaced. Rugs, tiling, ductwork, basements, and crawl spaces can be silent harbors for mold, and you may not know about it until it’s too late to avoid extensive damage.

    For more information about The Disaster Company’s mold removal services or to schedule your mold inspection, call 1-801-741-0000. Our friendly expert technicians will provide you with all of the information you need to ensure that mold growth cannot further harm your family’s health—or the value of your property and its contents. 

    Mold Clean Up Considerations

    Mold is truly a silent predator, destroying structural elements of your home and possibly even the health of you and your family. To truly eradicate the problem, a trained and qualified mold remediation expert must correctly diagnose the problem, use the right equipment to remove the fungal growth, replace any structural elements that continue to harbor mold growth or the potential for mold growth, and destroy or sanitize any household items that contain mold. 

    Mold can cause symptoms that may be easy to confuse with other ailments. What might start as an apparent cold or seasonal allergy can progress into irritated eyes, shortness of breath, tiredness, brain fog, nausea, and full-blown asthma. Even a fever can result as your body attempts to drive the toxic mold out of your system. Pay close attention to your symptoms when you are away from your home or on an extended vacation; if they begin to resolve, the culprit may be attacking you from within. 

    While it is not possible to eradicate every mold spore from your indoor environment, we can bring it to a manageable level, which should eliminate or greatly reduce any respiratory symptoms you experience as well as protect your property from damage.

    Our Mold Clean Up Process

    It is time to contact The Disaster Company as soon as you find or suspect mold growth in your home or place of business. Mold can quickly progress from potentially harmful to infestation levels in a matter of days. 

    When our mold remediation experts arrive on the scene, we will question you about recent events that may have contributed to mold growth such as a leaky roof, plumbing issue, or a flood. We conduct a thorough investigation of possible mold sources in your home and use our specialized equipment such as moisture sensors and thermal imaging devices to track mold to its source.

    Once the source of the mold has been determined, we will communicate with your insurer to determine the level of coverage they will provide. We will present you with an itemized list of our fees so that you know exactly what to expect.

    We get started on mold restoration by placing air filtration equipment and air barriers that will contain mold and spores that become disturbed during the removal process. This allows us to remove the source of the mold growth without spreading spores to new locations, which can kickstart the whole problem all over again. We recommend that you vacate the premises during this step in order to avoid being further affected by the inhalation of mold spores. Our mold removal team will then remove all affected materials and sanitize, treat surfaces with antimicrobial agents, and seal the area. 

    Porous items such as clothing, fabric, furniture, curtains, and carpeting can then be treated to remove all offending sources of mold. Our specialized cleaning agents, techniques, and equipment ensure that mold has no place to hide!

    When major restoration is required, we may remove carpet, wood floors and subfloors, and drywall and begin work on their replacement. Our network of specialty contractors ensure that the job is done right the first time. 

    Once our mold clean up is complete, your space should be free of mold infestation as well as mold smells. 

    Preventing Future Mold Growth

    Mold needs moisture to thrive. Keeping the humidity in your home below 45 percent with the use of dehumidifiers will help keep mold growth at bay. Air filtration units can help control the mold spores that are inevitably tracked into your home on a daily basis. Whether these are installed into your home or you use plug-in units, they are a great defense against future mold growth.

    Having your HVAC system regularly cleaned and serviced will not only eliminate mold that may be festering in your ductwork, but it will also prevent it from disseminating throughout the home when your heating or air conditioning system is in use.

    Bathrooms are a breeding ground for mold and mildew growth. Opening windows and using your extractor fan following all baths and showers will keep humidity low and restrict the opportunity for moisture to turn into mold. Act quickly on any bathroom tiles that begin to show signs of mold growth. Frequent cleaning with disinfectants will eliminate any mildew that begins to take hold. 

    Don’t allow plumbing issues to go unchecked. Water leaks will quickly infiltrate porous materials and could promote the growth of mold very quickly. 

    Upholstery and carpets should be professionally cleaned if they get wet. Not only will this prevent the fiber in question from getting ruined by mold, but it may also prevent mold from spreading to other porous materials.

    Mold refers to fungi that grow in the form of multi-cellular, thread-like structures. It is the product of lingering moisture from water that is absorbed by wood, drywall, furniture, or flooring when water enters a structure. It is found in damp building materials where it appears like stains of various colors. Often, mold grows unnoticed as it tends to grow in dark and unnoticed areas, resulting in large growths that can pose serious damage to your home or business. A bad smell could indicate the growth of mold even when it is not visible. Frequent inspection of your home or business can help you detect signs of mold that could be costly if left unattended.

    If you see or smell any signs of mold in your home or business, it is important that you immediately schedule an inspection. The Disaster Company will send a mold inspector to thoroughly conduct an inspection of your home or business to check for the presence of mold, which you may not detect. Mold, if left untreated, could your entire family at risk. People allergic to mold could have allergic reactions such as asthma attacks. Even if you are not allergic to mold, exposure to mold can irritate eyes, skin, throat, nose, and lungs. It is important, therefore, to promptly address the presence of mold in your house.

    If you find mold in your house or building, schedule an appointment for mold removal immediately. The process of removing mold from a home depends on the severity of the mold infestation. The first step is to install a containment system and a negative air machine where the mold is located. Our mold removal team will then remove all affected materials then clean, treat, and seal the area. You should not attempt to remove the mold problem yourself as it could lead to wider infestation that could pose greater health risks. Protect your health and leave mold removal to a professional mold removal company.

    Mold Damage Restoration FAQs

    Could mold overgrowth account for my chronic asthma?

    It’s possible. Mold irritates respiratory pathways and can cause a host of symptoms such as asthma, rashes, brain fog, and other chronic symptoms. If you are a renter and have a claim against your landlord, The Disaster Company can help by providing laboratory analysis of specimens to help with your case.

    Can I remove mold myself using bleach?

    No, this is not recommended and can actually make your infestation worse. Visible mold that appears on walls, for instance, is usually a result of mold growth behind the wall that is inaccessible from the outside. Trained and experienced mold removal experts can safely remove mold growth, preserve it for testing and analysis, and eliminate the cause of toxic fungi in your home. Likewise, mold sealant is at best a temporary solution and will not protect you from the ill health effects of mold overgrowth.

    Where does mold come from?

    Mold spores are practically everywhere and can enter your home on shoes, via pets, and even through an open window. However, mold cannot take root without water and moisture. Moisture that is trapped in walls, carpet fibers, and around areas of water damage can be a hotbed for mold growth. 

    What hidden areas does mold typically grow in?

    Unfortunately, with the right circumstances, mold can take root practically anywhere that can trap excess moisture and provide the conditions for it to grow. Porous materials such as wood and drywall can host mold concentrations without your realizing it—sometimes until massive damage has been done. 

    What are the indicators of mold in my home or place of business?

    If you have mold or mildew growth, you may notice a musty odor. This may emanate from a damp basement, affected carpet, or moldy bathroom. Be aware of leaky roofs or plumbing, which create fertile ground for mold to thrive. Ringed or stained walls may also indicate mold growth. Of course, if you can see mold, there may be a serious underlying problem.
