Once you start to feel like molds are living in some parts of your house, then you need to be alert. If you do not remove them immediately, they will end up ruining the affected area of your home. To verify your suspicion, you can start your search on those places that are commonly exposed to water. Areas like your sink, bathroom and pipelines have higher likability of being inhabited by molds.
There are instances however when manual inspection will not suffice. In this case, you will need the aid of mold specialists to do the legwork with you. Be reminded though that not all specialists or companies offering the service of removal are of the same quality. As homeowners, it is your responsibility to get the right pick. Here are some of the things you can consider.
Experience in the industry. The very first thing you can inspect on your end is the experience of the company. It is always safer to go for someone who has been in business for years and are getting good reviews by the clients.
Reference to previous customers. Take time to ask the company as well for reference to their previous clients, preferably those most recent ones. Reliable inspectors and contractors are more than willing to recommend you to someone. This is a show of their confidence in their service. This is the perfect opportunity for you to ask those clients for feedback.
Recommendations from friends. If you have friends who have dealt with same problems before, then do not hesitate to ask them for recommendations. They could either give you suggestions on how to deal with the problem yourself of they could point you to a high quality contractor.
Has an accredited laboratory. It is through the laboratory where specialists can test the result of the air inspection done at your place. Be sure that their lab is accredited by the American Industrial Hygiene Association. This will ensure that they have passed the standards of cleanliness and at the same time the right processes in conducting the test.
Quality of staff. Then, get a feel of their staff. Ask the company about the process of their hiring and whether their workers are licensed or have certification to be on service. You are inviting these people in your house. Be sure they are chosen well by the company you are hiring. Companies will most likely not give you the step by step process that they do in hiring. Its for theirs to keep. But they are willing to answer your questions about the general staffing.
Insurance. Lastly, check their insurance. This is your protection against any form of liability in case some form of accidents happen to the staff while they are working in your place. As much as possible only hire those which are insured.
Free your home off those annoying and harmful molds. Get the right guys on board who will remove them at once. The health of the people living in your place and the resistance of your house lies on its cleanliness. Clean them right.
