There is plenty of misconceptions about mold and color. For example, not all black mold is toxic, despite the perpetuating rumors. The only definitive way to know the toxicity or danger of mold found in your home is having it tested by a professional. Do not trust those DIY mold tests because many can produce a false positive.
If you believe you have a mold problem, contact a mold remediation company in White Bear Lake, MN. These services offer several advantages over DIY approaches.

  • Test and mold identification
  • Complete remediation and restoration
  • Professional advocacy

3 Advantages of Hiring a Mold Remediaton Proffessional


Test and Mold Identification


If you are dealing with toxic black mold, you do not want to be in your homes during remediation. A mitigation service will test your home's air quality and take samples of the mold growth to determine the species and appropriate mold cleanup procedures. For minor and non-toxic jobs, your family can possibly stay in the home during removal, depending on where the infestation is; however, if toxic, the house will require extreme precaution and quarantine of the infestation site.


Complete Remediation and Restoration


A professional service can often complete an entire remediation and restoration in less time than a homeowner alone. The company understands the proper cleanup process and knows how to restrengthen damaged structures.
Another significant benefit of professional companies is the work guarantee. Most remediation services certify their work with a warranty, meaning that if a problem is not resolved, they will come back and fix the persistent issue.


Professional Advocacy


While not every residential disaster will fall within your insurance policy, a remediation company can help determine the probability of any covered damages. For example, while many insurers will not cover mold per se, they might cover mold due to unseen damages. With experience working with various insurers, a mitigation service can advocate on the homeowner's behalf, helping to move the claims process along.

Do not try to correct black mold damage on your own. The risk of financial compounding financial loss is too significant. Instead, hire a mitigation company to help you sort through the damages.
