Dealing with mold is not only frustrating, but it is dangerous. It is dangerous for everyone involved physically and financially. Sure, when that mold shows up, you want to get rid of it as quickly as possible, but this can sometimes lead to you making a rushed decision. Before you hire any mold remediation company there are some questions that you clearly need to ask them.
How Many Remediation’s Has Your Company Done?
Experience is a must when it comes to the mold removal industry. Sure, you cannot fault a company because they are new. Everyone has to start somewhere, but experience is a must. You want to be extremely cautious of companies that have just added mold abatement services to their existing company. They might not know all the procedures and techniques for safely removing mold.
Are You Licensed?
You never want to deal with a company that is not licensed. This is like driving your car with insurance. You never know what is going to happen and the mold industry can be a dangerous and unpredictable one. You want to make sure that the company is insured in the event that something goes wrong inside the home. Even the best companies can make mistakes and ones that are insured will be able to financially compensate you.
What Happens If The Mold Comes Back?
Mold can sometimes be a fickle beast. If the source of the mold is not correctly identified or taken care of correctly that mold can come right back. You want to make sure that you are choosing a company that is willing to guarantee and back their work. You want a company that will come back out and rectify the situation if the mold does return. Make sure you get this in writing as well.
Can You Work Around My Schedule?
If you are a full-time working parent it probably doesn’t help to say that your life is hectic. With a 9 to 5 job and kids, your life is probably crazy and your schedule is probably even crazier. This is why you need to choose a company that is willing to work around you and your time frame.
Companies with large numbers of employees are even willing to come out on the weekends and after hours to get the job done. This is something that you might want to consider if you can’t afford to take time off work.
