Mold Removal & Restoration
What Is Mold?
While there are many reports and information on mold, it’s important to understand that mold is very common. It not only grows in buildings, homes, and businesses, but also exists outdoors as well. This means that mold can be present in your home currently, and can enter your home in a variety of different ways.
How does mold grow in my home?
Now that we have determined that mold is essentially everywhere, it’s important to know how mold can spread and grow. Moisture encourages mold to grow within your home and there are many materials within your home that support mold growth such as tiles, wood, dust, paints, wallpaper, insulation materials, drywall, carpet, fabric, and upholstery. Specific areas of your home are also at most risk such as bathrooms, areas where there has been water damage or where moisture is present.

Don’t just take our word for it, see what some
of our happy customers are saying!
From the day they explained what a Public Adjuster is, to handling every aspect of the insurance, to making sure the roof was completed correctly. I appreciated being informed at every aspect of the process and the roof is awesome. You even roofed the dog house to match. Yes I did notice:) I could not be happier with my experience and will highly recommend you to all my friends.
They replaced our siding and roof couple years ago! A year later, we found out that some of our siding was ripping from the side because of high winds. They sent a tech in 2 days to get it fixed right away and resolved the issue free of charge!
