You’ve noticed it….maybe in someone else’s’ home….maybe your own….that acrid, musty smell, and instant giveaway that you have a major mold problem. If you are buying a house and encounter this, then you know this is something that needs to be dealt with before you sign the dotted line, and if you own a house with mold, then forget selling it until you remedy the problem. Mold is quite common, often the result of water damage, and it can become both expensive and dangerous if not properly treated.
Now most homes have mold, because we see it all the time in our showers, and occasionally in our kitchens. Most of these mold growths can be taken out with a little judicious elbow grease, rubbing in some commercially available mold agents. The problem comes when mold gets out of control in your basement, crawlspace, basically anywhere it can grow to considerable size.
While mold is unattractive and smells bad, the good news is that in most cases it is harmless. Mold is instantly recognizable, both in odor and appearance, and while many outfits offer mold testing, a simple look around or whiff of the air is usually enough to tell you if you have a problem.
Because mold is a problem that will not go away or get better over time, and because some species of mold may be actively dangerous to your health, it is imperative that you contact a certified mold removal professional, the pros at AFC Cleaning & Restoration. We can have a technician on site promptly to determine your mold problem and begin the remediation process.
At AFC Cleaning & Restoration, we are able to remove the mold from your home or business without disrupting the growth and accidentally causing the problem to spread (as a less qualified provider may very well do). We keep the mold confined to one area until we completely eliminate it from the home. This requires specialized treatment with state of the art mold removal and remediation tools that are designed to fight the mold problem that is affecting your property.
Mold reproduces by way of microscopic spores, which are airborne, float, then land and grow in any area with moisture to sustain them. If a home has one mold growth, the chances are very good that you may find several more. AFC Cleaning & Restoration technicians know where to look for mold growth and how to take care of it when it is found. We have years of experience in this area and know exactly where to look for mold growth or situations that may be conducive to mold growth.
You have to remember that mold is always the byproduct of another problem, usually water damage, and that original problem must be located and addressed. Otherwise, the mold will simply grow back later and continue to cause problems your home. The mold has to be completely removed, and the affected area needs to be treated to bring down humidity levels and improve ventilation to make sure it will not support any future growths.
AFC Cleaning & Restoration can provide you with a detailed plan for eliminating the mold in your home and preventing it from returning. Our mold remediation specialists have the experience and techniques necessary to handle even the largest cases of mold growth.

Craig and Patti, I want to thank you and your crew for doing a terrific job on sanding and refinishing the wood floors in our living room, dining room and stairs. They had gotten so dingy, and worn out; and after five dogs over the years, they were quite scratched. Now they look fantastic, they are smooth, the color is perfect and wood grain is so rich. I am not sure I even want to put any rugs down.Cynthia B.
