A mold infestation can be one of the most difficult to remedy problems that any property owner can face. As anyone who has found a forgotten Tupperware in the back of their fridge knows, mold can grow just about anywhere, but it is especially fond of dim places with high humidity. Unfortunately, the heating and air conditioning systems that are practically standard in today’s buildings provide enough variation between indoor and outdoor temperature that condensation becomes a problem, and when you’ve got a condensation problem, mold is practically inevitable. If you suspect the presence of mold in your home or office, contact the professional mold removal team at StructureMEDIC. Call (404) 556-8278 today, and find out what a difference experience can make.
When you choose StructureMEDIC for your mold removal and remediation needs, you are getting the benefit of our experience, as well as excellent training from the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC)—the industry’s leader in restoration education. Led by a veteran of the restoration industry with more than 25 years of experience, the restoration team at StructureMEDIC has the experience to provide you with a solution, no matter how complicated the damage to your property may appear.

To that end, our staff includes a full-time plumbing expert to help with the identification and repair of plumbing-specific issues.

How Does Mold Form?
Not every moisture problem is a result of poorly calibrated HVAC systems; mold can form as a result of the introduction of water due to flooding, or the aftermath of a fire where water has been used to extinguish the flames. Any time there is excess moisture in a building—especially if that moisture goes unnoticed and untreated for any length of time—you are facing a risk of mold infestation. Even a slow leak in the plumbing can provide the right conditions for mold. When your home or business floods, whether it is due to a burst pipe, cracked seal, or water coming in from an outside source, problems with mold growth are often soon to follow—unless you get professional help, fast! StructureMEDIC also provides emergency water removal service 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year—so you know that when you need help, StructureMEDIC will be there for you. If you need the largest and most experienced team of experts in your area, look no further!
When it is visible, mold often appears to be a discolored spot, green or black speckles, or fuzzy growth. The problem is that once you see mold, the chances of it being present elsewhere (especially on the other side of the walls) are quite high. Mold is also detectable by its musty smell, which can get into hair and clothing, clinging to you even when you leave the mold-infested environment. Although mold colonies are easily visible, mold spores are so tiny that they cannot be seen by the naked eye. These spores are present all around us, all the time, and seldom present a problem, even when they are breathed in. Problems arise when mold grows in an enclosed environment—like a building that has been “sealed” to prevent the escape of climate-controlled air. Mold spores can affect the air quality, and in some cases can be toxic or even fatal. Certain types of mold, especially “black mold” are considered extremely dangerous and their presence in your home or office should be taken seriously. Symptoms of exposure to harmful mold can include headaches, nausea, difficulty breathing, congestion, nosebleeds, throat irritation and other flu-like symptoms. If you or anyone occupying your property is experiencing these symptoms, please contact a health care provider without delay—then, call the experts at StructureMEDIC. We will send in our IICRC-certified mold removal and remediation team to locate and assess your mold problem as quickly as possible.
All of our mold removal service technicians have been certified by the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification—the restoration industry’s standard-setting organization. This means that our service technicians have been trained in the techniques that allow them to locate, assess, and eradicate mold, and—more importantly—locate and remediate the underlying cause of your mold problem. You see, there is no point in removing the mold in a building if you don’t take the time to remedy whatever has caused the excess humidity that has made your property so inviting in the first place. Removing mold without fixing the cause is a temporary fix at best. At StructureMEDIC, our service technicians know the difference between mold removal and mold remediation. We will not only destroy the mold at its source, and remove any unsalvageable materials, but also take steps to ensure that it won’t come back!
One of the most difficult aspects of dealing with any property-damaging situation can be dealing with the red tape surrounding insurance claims. Most insurance policies handle the cost of water damage mitigation, but they will require the policy holder to take action that prevents further damage—like the mold that inevitably follows if your water problem is not properly remedied. StructureMEDIC has more than 25 years of experience working with the insurance companies. We document every aspect of our work, providing all of the information needed to file insurance claims. When StructureMEDIC says that we are a full-service restoration company, we mean it. No other restoration company in your area works as hard as we do to ensure that your property makes a full recovery. Call us today at (404) 556-8278
