Mold Remediation – Don’t Do it Yourself!

Mold Remediation isn’t something that most people think about until they discover a mold problem. If you’ve found mold in your home or business, you may think you can handle it yourself. But there are a number of reasons why you should leave this job to experts, like the team at Smart Restoration, LLC. We provide mold remediation in Kansas City and the surrounding areas to help you get your home or business back to a clean and safe condition. 
 
There are lots of different types of mold, and most of the time they aren’t harmful. However, mold that is allowed to grow unchecked can cause a host of problems such as structural damage, unpleasant living and working conditions, and health issues (for those who are sensitive to it.) It grows under warm, moist conditions such as those found in kitchens and bathrooms. In those places it is usually easy to see and deal with as part of your regular cleaning regimen. However, if you’ve had a burst water pipe, a leaky roof or have found other areas where water has entered your home, there may be mold that you can’t even see. The mold remediation experts at Smart Restoration are trained to inspect your home for mold and identify and treat mold damaged areas. 
 
You may be saying “It’s just mold, why can’t I do the cleanup myself?” There are a few risks to attempting to take care of your own mold problem. The most obvious one is that you may not be able to identify all of the water damaged areas where mold may be growing. If you don’t get it all, mold will continue to grow and damage your home or business. Proper mold remediation also requires equipment and knowledge to keep mold spores from spreading during cleanup. Specialized equipment is also necessary to clean the air in the building after mold remediation.. Most people don’t have this equipment. It is also important to use proper cleaning products to remove mold. Common household cleaners, such as bleach, are not effective against mold growing on porous surfaces like drywall. SMART Restoration’s mold remediation experts take every precaution to avoid spreading mold spores through the air during cleanup. We use only EPA-approved products to eliminate mold, and we have the air purifying equipment needed to get the air in your home or business fresh and clean again.
