Mold Remediation San Diego | Same Day Restoration & Cleaning

Mold Remediation

Mold is capable of growing within 48-72 hours following a water leak. If you were not aware of a water leak in your home, the odds of the mold being present is fairly high. Mold spreads pollutants and irritants in the air and can make the indoor air quality dangerous for you and your loved ones. Here at Same Day Restoration and Carpet Cleaning we are there for you with 24/7 emergency services. If you suspect you might have a mold problem call a professional, IICRC certified company, to schedule an inspection immediately.

Once on site our technicians are able to assess your unique situation. Our technicians are able to provide you with an estimate of the cost based on the extent of the damages; we use Xactimate for our clients’ billing, which is the insurance industry standard software for emergency services. Once our contract is signed, our technicians are able to start building a containment to protect the remainder of your home while they work on the affected areas. We work for you and can deal directly with your insurance company on your behalf to get your situation handled in a professional and timely manner. We use state-of-the-art equipment and follow industry standard guidelines for Mold Remediation so you can rest easy knowing professionals are in your home who will get the job done right.

We provide services as mold contractors throughout the area.

I only see a little bit of mold, can I just clean it up with bleach?

Even if you are only able to see a little bit of mold it does not mean there is not more lurking behind the walls or in other areas. Do not attempt to clean mold with bleach. Bleach does not kill mold, it just turns it white. Trying to wipe up mold can cause it to spread because the action of wiping it up disturbs the mold spores. This is why, before we do any removal of the affected areas, we build a containment to prevent the spread of mold spores to other areas of your home. If you see visible mold growth in your home call a professional Mold Remediation company right away.

How much does Mold Remediation cost?
The cost is dependent on the extent of the damages. Typically a mold remediation can cost between 1000.00 (minor mold problem) to 10,000 (equated to a whole home with visible mold). We use industry standard pricing software to bid out your Mold Remediation and we work directly with the insurance company to get them to approve the estimate before we begin the work.
Do we have to vacate our home is there is mold?
It depends on the extent of the problem. In most circumstances we are able to build a containment around the affected areas in your home that would prevent the spreading of mold spores, meaning you could still be in the home while remediation services were underway. In cases that are more severe, you may need to be out of the home until everything that has been affected by mold is cut out and removed. Our technicians make sure to inform you if they feel it would be safer for you to stay somewhere else while they take care of the mold in your home.
How do I know if the mold is gone after you've completed services?
While you can do a visual inspection, we always recommend the hiring of a third party testing agency to ensure we’ve done our job properly. We do not provide testing as it would be a conflict of interest on our part. We are always happy to recommend companies we work with, but you are free to hire any company you wish. Having a third party verification testing company is the best way to ensure that the mold remediation was complete and it gives you the peace of mind knowing that your home is now mold free.

Upon inspecting the air ducts, we might recommend you an EPA approved biocide which will thoroughly disinfect your non- porous system components.

Next, we will identify & repair any kind of air leaks that you might have in your HVAC

While cleaning the HVAC system, we will use the safest and the most effective products. Lastly, we will repair & seal all the openings cut into the duct.
