Where Should I Be Looking For Mold In My Home?

We do live on a tropical island, so mold can (and does) grow just about anywhere. While it typically likes damp, dark corners, thanks to our consistently warm and humid environments it can even be found in areas that we might think of as being drier. Some of the common places it is found (both indoor and outdoors) is…

  • Leaky roofs
  • Leaky windows
  • Leaky pipes
  • Air ducts
  • Air filters
  • Ventilation systems
  • Anywhere moisture is retained
  • Anywhere there has been flooding or standing water
  • Anywhere there is poor ventilation or airflow
  • And more…

Mold can grow on just about any type of surface or construction material, but it does tend to do quite well in or on these…

  • Wallpaper
  • Insulation
  • Drywall
  • Carpet
  • Cardboard
  • Ceiling tiles
  • Wood
  • Paints
  • Fabric
  • Upholstery
  • Dust
  • And more…

Although it is fairly easy to tell if you have mold (pretty much everyone knows what it looks like), it’s not nearly as easy to tell if you are facing a toxic species, such as black mold. As it turns out, that doesn’t really matter much. Why?

As the CDC states on its website:

If you can see or smell mold, a health risk may be present.

Don’t risk it. Call one of our mold experts today!

You May Experience Health Effects From Mold Exposure?

Even if you’re not dealing with toxic mold, ALL mold has the potential to do harm, and is very commonly found to be bothersome by anyone inhabiting or working in a moldy environment. In addition, prolonged exposure can even lead to some serious health effects, such as…

  • Asthma complications in people with asthma
  • Adult onset Asthma
  • Shortness of breath
  • Chronic Allergies
  • Chronic Cough
  • Chronic Sneezing
  • Unexplained Skin Irritation or Rashes

Who Should I Call On Kauai To Repair Mold Damage?

One thing you don’t want to do if you think you have mold is WAIT!.

Mold grows fast. The longer you wait, the greater the likelihood that your home or commercial property will suffer extensive damage. This means your mold job will become more and more expensive to fix. This is because, mold quickly spreads, but it doesn’t just spread out. Often times mold will penetrates deep into the structure of your building.

Treating it while it’s on the surface is key. That is where experience comes in. The technicians we partner with are highly trained, but they also have years of experience in dealing with mold infestations of all types and they know how to accomplish a thorough and comprehensive removal. It is important to work with an experienced professional so that you don’t risk further damage from some of it getting left behind.

On the other hand, if the mold has already gotten into structural elements of your building, it is even MORE important that you hire a trusted pro. Imagine tearing out or tearing down large sections of carpet, wallpaper, flooring or walls, only to find out that the people you hired don’t really know what they are doing!

You’ll notice that we don’t make any low-price guarantees, or claim to have the cheapest rates on the island. That’s because the contractors we partner with are worth their salt. They are trustworthy professionals that deliver the results you expect, as well as a customer service experience that is pure aloha.

What Does Mold Remediation Cost On Kauai?

A proper estimate for your mold job requires a thorough on-site inspection. Once we have been able to properly assess your particular situation, we can give you a full damage report along with our recommendations for how to go about treating it and the associated costs.

You will be fully informed of the total cost before moving forward. We can even help you maximize any homeowner’s or renter’s insurance policies you may have that can help toward the overall cost.

Fees typically vary from job-to-job depending on whether or not it is a straightforward removal job, or if there will be a need for remediation.

What’s the difference?

Mold removal is typically less expensive because the mold has not caused damage to underlying structure, and there are also no mediating factors that have to be addressed to help prevent a resurgence, such as…

  • Standing water
  • Flood prone areas
  • Poor ventilation

On the other hand, if there are environmental circumstances that must be addressed, or if the overall extent of the damage is too great, then more advanced techniques and technologies must be employed to properly eliminate the problem. This is commonly referred to as remediation and is often more expensive. It may be more extensive, or involve advanced technologies such as…

  • Demolition and repair of damaged structure
  • Flood damage restoration
  • Negative air machines
  • Spore containment
  • Hazardous removal

If you’re not dealing with a true professional, you’re increasing the risk of getting an inadequate or incomplete job, or being overcharged for unnecessary services – or both!

That won’t happen with a Precision Mold Removal contractor!

We are proud to stand behind the work we do, and how we do it! Call us today to find out why we are so confident that you are working with Kauai’s best mold removal specialists!

Frequently Asked Questions

Can You Clean Up Mold Yourself?

The location of the mold plays a major role in how to clean it up. For example, you will need to use different tools depending on the location of the mold. Though you can clean mold by yourself, it is a dangerous undertaking and not something we recommend. When you scrub mold, it releases mold particles into the air, which you may breathe in. To prevent this, it is always better to opt for a professional cleanup team to help you with mold contamination. A professional cleanup team will make sure your home is safe from mold spores while they clean up.

What Is the Best Product to Kill Mold?

You can purchase products specifically designed for killing mold or you can use products that you have already lying around your house. However, it’s best to get the mold inspected first to see the extent of the damage and to make sure the mold you have isn’t black mold. Generally, pre-made products will cost you a little more, but the price tag may be worth the investment depending on how serious your mold contamination is. However, serious mold contaminations require extra attention. In many circumstances, mold will come back if not handled properly. This is why we recommend leaving mold cleanup to the experts. We can make sure your mold problems don’t keep reoccurring after cleaning up.

Could I Use Bleach or Vinegar to Kill Mold?

When it comes to mold, not all contaminations are the same. Some contaminations infect far past the surface you can see mold while others are simple surface contaminations. To decide whether bleach or mold is the best product for getting rid of mold contamination, you need to take note of the surface the contamination is on. For contaminations on porous areas like wood, vinegar is best to kill mold while the bleach is better for harder surfaces. Though you can use these products to kill mold, there is no way to know if you have killed the source of the mold. A professional mold remediation team can help you clean mold and make sure it never comes back by locating the cause of mold growth.

Do I Need a Mold Inspection?

Chances are if you haven’t ever had a mold inspection, you need one. Many people think their houses are free from mold, but this often is not the case. If you live in an older house, there is a good chance that there is mold growing somewhere unseen in the crawlspace or even the sheathing of your home. However, even modern houses aren’t safe from mold contamination. Many builders try their best to make sure mold doesn’t grow in their buildings, but it is impossible for houses to stay mold-free without taking very thorough measures. A mold remediation team can locate mold inside your home, even if it is not visible.
