Mold Mitigation & Removal Services Washington, DC
When approaching a mold mitigation and cleaning project, one of the most important considerations is the potential risk from mold exposure. Mold counts in the air can be 10 to 1,000 times higher than normal during a remediation project. Because of the potential health risks from mold exposure, it is advisable, particularly for larger (greater than 10 square feet) contamination situations, to contact a mold remediation contractor. Individuals who have allergies, asthma or respiratory disease, or have other health problems should not take part in or during mold removal/cleaning project or be in the general area of the project.

Client Review Process
Once the remediation has concluded, the project manager will then inform the client of remediation completion and schedule a post-remediation testing to ensure all mold has been removed from the area, per the request of the client. A Certificate of Remediation will be issued to the client when the remediation is completed, or after the results are given from post-remediation testing, if the client had testing.
The Certificate of Remediation
This is a warranty of our remediation treatment. This will guarantee that if the area we remediated has any mold contamination within the certificate's designated time period, we will come back to the property and remediate the area again for no charge!
Follow-up with Customer
The follow-up will occur when we have completed all remediation and testing. The project manager will call the client and ask if the remediation was satisfactory and if there are any further questions they would like to address.
What It Costs
As there are so many variables involved in mold remediation, this cost can only be determined at the time of the mold inspection. Mold remediation can also include the cost of repairing water-damaged materials, repairing leaks, removing fiberglass insulation, cleaning carpets as well as cleaning, abatement and preventive treatments.
