After the problem is noticed, you need to call The Duct Kings of Dallas to get one of our technicians with years of experience to give it a look. This is the first place that problems can start to appear. Depending on where the mold is, and how extensive it is, assessing the damage may be difficult. If there is a moisture source in a hard-to-reach area, the technician may have more difficulties in this step. Rest assured that we have the necessary tools and equipment to get it done, but complications are possible. In the assessment process, you can count on our technicians to give you a rundown of the problem, and a more detailed description of how the next few steps will go down with the specificity that suits you.
Step 3: Containment
Containment is an extremely important but variable step of the process. Essentially, our technicians will make sure that mold spores don’t float through the property and cause more mold problems in the future. This can include removing furniture, enclosing the affected area with plastic, and many other things. The exact details about the best way to do this are going to vary depending on your situation. Your technician will help you understand what needs to be done, and how to best do it.
Step 4: Air Filtration
This step is especially important for any cases involving Black Mold. To put it simply, we have equipment that can pull spores out of the air and make sure there aren’t any floating seeds of future problems. How long this step takes and how much it costs will depend largely on the extent of the damage. If you have a massive amount of mold in your home or business, then more filtration will be needed.
