You are cleaning out a closet in your guest bedroom, and you notice some strange black spotting on one of the walls. At first, you think it must be dirt from the sports equipment you stored in the closet. But upon closer inspection, you discover that it is definitely not dirt and that your air conditioner seems to be slowly leaking from the attic down the wall. With a sinking feeling, you realize that the wall is covered with black mold! You think “Gross! No wonder my allergies have been acting up! I’ve got to get this taken care of fast!”
Mold and mildew are naturally occurring microorganisms that commonly exist in our homes and businesses, particularly in the humid state of Florida. These microbes can be toxic and non-toxic and can be any number of colors including black, purple, and green. You may at first notice the musty odor of mold and mildew. Then, it may appear on doors, ceilings, walls, or floors, and continue to spread very quickly. When the amount of mold or mildew increases to this problematic level, most often due to water damage, rapid mold remediation becomes a must. Without it, mold can cause health problems for pets and people of all ages, including asthma, headaches, and allergic reactions.
The knowledgeable professionals at Joe Taylor Restoration are ready to respond to your mold emergency at a moment’s notice. Our trained technicians utilize the latest technology and consult with certified environmental hygienists to determine the source and variety of the mold, as well as the extent of the damage. Then, we work quickly and carefully to rid the environment of harmful airborne toxins and restore it to its previous state.
Joe Taylor Restoration is properly licensed by the State of Florida to provide mold remediation services. We also carry Pollution Insurance, which is hard to acquire and more expensive than the standard General Liability Insurance. Most mold remediation companies do not carry this type of insurance, but we feel it is necessary to ensure your safety and peace of mind.
Though the remediation process for mold and mildew damage can vary depending on the type and the extent of the damage, most often, the key to the success of the process is identifying the source and removing the mold. Joe Taylor Restoration utilizes a three-phase process to remove mold from your home or business. First, our certified technicians will properly contain the affected area to prevent the contamination of any unaffected areas. Next, by utilizing specialized equipment and High Efficiency Particulate Arresting (HEPA) Filtration, we will remove the mold from any and all surfaces, including the ceiling, walls, floors, furniture or other contents, and even the air. Finally, we will employ a micro-cleaning process that will further remove any remaining mold spores present in the structure or the air, and apply a biocide to further sanitize the affected areas. Our goal is not only to get rid of the fungal intruder, but also to prevent additional damage to building materials and protect your health and the health of other inhabitants while we do so.
Joe Taylor Restoration is fully committed to the best possible customer service. Therefore, our technicians will explain in detail every step of the recovery process as it pertains to your property. We will also clearly report our findings to you and your insurance carrier in a timely manner. A comprehensive estimate, including photographs and properly completed paperwork, will be communicated to the agent or adjuster within 48 hours of job completion.
