Black Mold Removal From Sterling, VA Homes

Mold Removal in Burke, VA

Black mold removal in Sterling, VA can prevent staining of walls and ceilings, secure installed building materials, and prevent additional property damage. Human exposure to black mold causes sinus and throat irritation, coughing and wheezing, eye irritation, or, in some cases, skin rash.

Here are a few reasons why you should consider hiring a certified, licensed professional for mold removal in Sterling, VA:

  • Mold is dangerous, can be toxic and unhealthy. Hiring professional mold removal experts to remove an extensive mold outbreak from your home - and take the necessary steps to prevent it in the future - is the best decision. Why expose anyone to additional dangers associated with mold spores?

Four important tips for people as they begin the process of drying out and eliminating conditions that promote black mold growth.

  1. Ideally, the home should be dried out in 24-48 hours.
  2. Porous items such as clothing, upholstered furniture, and other fabrics hold a lot of moisture and promote black mold growth. They need to be dried quickly. If they can't be dried out in 24-48 hours, throw them out.
  3. Humidity in the air promotes rampant, black mold growth. Well-placed fans, adequate ventilation, and whole-house dehumidifiers can be used to adjust ambient humidity below 50 percent.
  4. Ceilings, floors, and walls may need to be exposed to promote drying. Porous construction materials that are wet (compressed wood products, carpeting, ceiling tiles, drywall, etc.) should be removed and disposed of quickly and properly.

"People who live in areas of Sterling that are prone to flooding could deal with black mold removal in Sterling, VA. Dry out as quickly as possible. If you have water in your basement, and standing water shows the damage is already done, leaving it there longer can make it worse and ultimately lead to black mold growth.

If you see black mold, hire a mold remediation contractor for black mold removal in Sterling, VA. Be leery, because the mold industry is not highly regulated by state governments. Get multiple bids and make sure the mold remediation company contracts are precise and specific.

Removal Tips

  • If black mold is visually apparent, correct known moisture problems and clean up black mold contamination and bypass mold testing.
  • For areas, less than 10 square feet with black mold growth, a home or business owner may perform the work but we “HIGHLY RECOMMEND” that you contact and hire a professional. For larger areas, a licensed, qualified mold remediation contractor who has experience in black mold removal or environmental contamination may be required.
  • Everyone, including professionals performing black mold removal work, need to be protected with gloves, a HEPA certified respirator, and disposable, protective clothing and goggles.
