Mold Damage Basics

Mold is a small substance that causes big problems.

Aside from damage to structure and building aesthetics, mold can ruin indoor air quality.  Mold is linked to health problems and can be detrimental to you, your family, and your employees.
Whether mold is confined to a small area within a single room or distributed throughout an entire structure our certified technicians use the most up to date industry standards to safeguard the building inhabitants and return the affected environment to a healthy condition.  In most cases,  third-party Industrial Hygienists or Environmental Consultants are part of the solution program.  We will do what it takes to solve your mold problems.
If you own your own home, are a business owner or a property manager we can help you deal with your mold diagnosis and if necessary, mold remediation.

How do you fix it?
Mold remediation, also known as mold removal, is the process by which a certified and/or trained professional performs the removal and/or cleanup of mold from an indoor environment, When levels become abnormally high as determined by indoor air quality testing or a mold inspection, remediation is recommended to be carried out by a professional remediation company.
Five Typical Steps of Professional Mold Removal and Remediation:
  1. Source Identification
    • Through the use of moisture detection equipment, such as thermal imaging, UNGERMAN technicians will identify moisture intrusion in residential and commercial structures. Potential sources of moisture include flooding and leaking.
  2. Containment
    • Technicians isolate the area of contamination to eliminate the spread of mold spores to other areas of the property.
  3. Filtration
    • HEPA air filters and negative air machines run continuously throughout the project.  Mold spores, dust, microbial volatile organic compounds (MVOCs), and other airborne debris are removed from the air.
  4. Removal and Cleanup
    • Contaminated materials are removed or restored according to mold remediation guidelines.  Drywall, carpet, furniture, and other damaged materials may have to be replaced to prevent mold from returning.
  5. Replacement
    • UNGERMAN teams can provide and install all the new building materials required to return all effected areas of the property to their pre-loss condition.
