Steps To Take In The Mold Removal Process

It is important to us that our clients understand the steps involved in the mold removal procedure. We spend time educating our clients about the process and welcome any questions. We want the owner to understand why our employees are suited up in Tyvek suits, wearing respirators, carrying large machines into their buildings, and building containment walls in areas that the owners will not be able to access for the duration of the mold remediation project.

Our company will inform our clients of the possible factors that caused the mold to develop, how it reproduces and how it travels within a building. It is our desire that the owner knows the facts. It is documented that certain molds cause serious health problems and for that reason a protocol for removal has been deemed essential. After we identify a problem in your home or building during the initial inspection, a proposal is prepared for our clients which will include the following:

Mold can cause serious health problems, including respiratory infections, allergic reactions, and even cancer. Mold prevention is essential to protecting the health of your environment whether it is a home or business. Some mold prevention tips include:

  1. Keep your home air-conditioned during hot months to decrease humidity level;
  2. Inspect your home for leaking pipes or water stained ceilings or walls; repair   leaks promptly and insulate any bare pipes;
  3. Vent clothes dryer and bathroom ventilation fan(s) to the exterior of the home;
  4. Use dehumidifiers in areas not air conditioned, such as the basement or mechanical areas;
  5. Use anti-microbial building materials and coatings in areas that may experience excessive moisture, such as bathrooms and basements.

The crew did a great job in removing the asbestos material. Pedro Aluane was great to work with, and he went the extra mile giving me a hand at end of day in installing a tarp over the work area in case it rained over night. Thanks

Elio was responsive, the admin staff was communicative, Alex and the on-site folks were tidy and professional. Not inexpensive, but that's the nature of their business I suppose. Asbestos abatement isn't a DIY gig.

Alex Henriquez was the project manager for our project. We had some moisture coming in to the house from outside from an old AC unit. He took every precaution to help with removing and stabilizing the lead paint. Alex was also incredibly knowledgeable and was able to answer every question so I could understand exactly what caused the issue what they did and what needed to be done to prevent it in the future. Amazing job.

Can’t begin to express how great the service was from EHC. I had a wall torn out by a contractor who didn’t test for asbestos, potentially putting my home at risk. EHC came out the very next morning to test my wall and samples, and even provided a rush service making sure I had results the day after. Both the technician (apologies for a bad memory with names), and Colleen were so helpful and were able to set everyone’s minds at ease. I expected to pay a lot for the service, but it was incredibly affordable. Can’t say enough about how professional and helpful this company is. Thank you for caring about customers and proving incredible service!

Alex and his team were extremely professional. My experience with this company as a whole has been very positive. They made quick work of the asbestos insulated pipes and 100 year old boiler in my basement. My family and I are so relieved and thankful to have that stuff out of our home.

I had a mold issue in my basement and called EHC for assistance and I couldn't be more pleased with the service.From the beginning when Elio came out it was clear that he was exceptionally knowledgeable and friendly. His expertise was evident from the start, and he took the time to explain everything clearly. His approachability helped make the process less stressful.When it was time for the job to be done, Luis and the team did an outstanding job. They took the time to address any concerns and questions, ensuring that I was comfortable with every step of the process. I was also impressed by their efficiency.I wholeheartedly recommend the team from EHC for any mold remediation needs. Their professionalism, expertise, & friendliness are truly top notch.
