We have witnessed firsthand the health effects that mold damage has had on property owners. The damage done to their home or business is nothing compared to the overall health issues that mold brings. With that said, it is imperative that you contact us immediately at the first signs of mold.

- The presence of visible mold

Remember, if you can see mold, there is likely a lot more mold that you cannot see. It is important that you contact us, that can detect hidden mold and ensure that it is entirely removed from your home or commercial space.
What You Should Know About Black Mold
You’ve probably heard horror stories about black mold, so the idea that it could exist in your home might be terrifying. However, understanding how to control and prevent this toxic mold is important. You need to have the ability to identify black mold in your Ohio home in case you ever come across it.
In most cases, black mold will be found in areas that are humid, warm, and damp. The most common areas are crawlspaces and basements with lots of moisture, which helps mold to grow. While you may be accustomed to mold that is gray or green, black mold is signified by its black color. This makes it simple to identify in your own home.
The problem with black mold is that it can cause health problems and allergic reactions. The symptoms of exposure to black mold vary based on the length of exposure and how prevalent the mold is.
Common symptoms of black mold exposure include:
- Eye irritation
- Chronic coughing
- Nose or mouth irritation.
If the exposure is prolonged, exposure may also cause vomiting, nausea, and bleeding nose and lungs. Due to the major health issues that mold can cause, it’s important to be aware of mold in the home for prevention and control.

The Three R's: Removal, Remediation & Repairs
Once mold is detected, our primary objectives are to remove the mold and remediate the surrounding areas as soon as possible. We quickly remove the damaged areas and remediate all affected surrounding areas. During this process, our highest priority is to bring air quality back to an acceptable level.
Once the mold is removed and remediated, our repair team begins repairing and restoring your home back to its original condition.
Our Mold Damage Restoration Process
It is fairly obvious that water damage can lead to mold. After all, excessive dampness is one of the prime factors in mold growth. However, many people don’t realize that fire damage can also lead to mold, as efforts to put out the fire with water can create ideal conditions for various types of mold. Mold can even grow in homes or businesses that have not suffered water or fire damage, as long as there are ideal conditions of dampness and darkness.
Our mold professional will conduct a free inspection to identify if there are signs of mold in your home or place of business. During the inspection, your Ohio mold remediation expert will also try to find the cause of any issues, utilizing infrared cameras and moisture meters.
If there is reason to believe there is mold present, the next step is to have a licensed mold assessor test for mold. This process allows a third-party lab to verify the presence of mold. This same assessor will also create a mold protocol for mold removal. This can best be described as a step-by-step playbook of how the mold is to be removed, remediated, and disposed of.
Your Project Manager will review the protocol with you and answer any questions. At that time, we will also schedule a day to start the mold remediation.
