Looking for Professional Mold Cleanup Services?

If you're searching for a reputable and affordable mold removal company in the Los Angeles area, you've come to the right place. The Cleanup Doctors take their time in evaluating the indoor air quality and any potential environmental toxicity caused by water damage, mold and/or mildew. In many cases, a deeper search needs to be performed to ascertain whether there are more serious contaminants hiding behind walls, baseboards, or tiles. It is always good practice to take the extra precaution and have this step performed.                               

 

Mold exposure can be a very serious problem and should be dealt with promptly. You will usually start to experience typical allergic responses to consistent exposure, so if you're not usually one to suffer seasonal allergies, this could be an early indication that you have a contamination issue somewhere within your dwelling. At that point, it would be in your best interest to not only consult a physician, but a Cleanup Doctor as well.

Dangerous black mold on drywall                                    

 

We take pride in our attention to detail, our many years of experience in the mold removal industry, and of course our BBB rating. We use only the latest and most technologically advanced equipment available to perform our mold inspection in order to determine potential health threats and structural degradation. It doesn't stop with the air and structure though, as it's also very important that personal items and effects are tested and treated as well. It contamination is detected, in many cases restoration can be performed to save them from having to be discarded during the mold remediation process.

Once the air and surface inspections are finished, our detailed analysis will uncover the facts about whether or not there is toxic or black mold present, and how much of it there is. You will also be advised on whether or not the property should be vacated until the abatement process is completed and the toxicity levels are normalized.

A mold inspection will normally last a couple of hours for a typical residential household, and obviously may take a lot longer depending on the square footage and other varying factors, such as severity of the contamination. While the inspection is being performed, The Cleanup Doctors conduct an examination of the overall state of the property. As soon as the initial inspection is completed, all of the samples that were gathered will be sent to a lab for further analysis. The amount of time for the reports to be finished is usually somewhere between 1 and 5 days.

It should also be noted that the Environmental Protection Agency does not generally require sampling unless the occupants of the property display one or more of the following symptoms:
  Sinus congestion                                     


•  Runny nose


  Watery, irritated eyes


  Tightness in the chest, trouble catching your breath


  Coughing

  Wheezing


  Consistent sneezing


  Sore or scratchy throat


  Headaches


  Rashes

The Steps of the Remediation Process

There are a few levels for this procedure, and it depends upon the size of the area undergoing remediation. Most situations call for Level 3 removal procedures.

1.) Locate and Eliminate the Moisture Issue

This is the primary objective, because without this step, the mold issue will keep returning

2.) Isolate the Contaminated Areas

All door and window openings will need to be sealed with a special polyethylene plastic, and then taped so there are no cracks or seams where the spores could potentially escape.

3.) Contain the Mold

Mold spreads much faster when the spores are dry and subsequently agitated. This allows them to become airborne. All HVAC systems will be powered down no spores can circulate. At this point, a negative air chamber may be employed to keep all of the spores contained in the room.

4.) Air Filtration

Now we have to catch the spores that have gone airborne, and we do this by employing powerful air scrubbers and HEPA vacuums.

5.) Remove All Soiled Materials

Now we remove and and/or discard the materials that are contaminated and cannot be salvaged because of their porous materials. In select cases, certain items can be cleaned and treated using special procedures. Items such as carpeting and clothing will have to be thrown out. For items that are saved, we apply an anti-microbial solution to keep new mold from forming.

6.) Restoration

Depending on severity, sometimes drywall and other building materials will have to be removed, as these can house colonies deep down where the cleanup process can’t penetrate without compromising the structure of the material. Once this phase is complete, it may be necessary to replace certain building materials, repaint, and even re-carpet affected areas.
