A mold infestation in your home or business can be incredibly harmful and toxic, causing serious health problems for everyone who is exposed. Getting mold under control can be tricky. When you smell a damp, musty odor, or when your home or business experiences water damage, call the mold professionals at Guardian Recovery Services of Ferndale. We offer state-of-the-art, safe, and effective mold remediation services for residential and commercial properties all over Michigan.
At Guardian Recovery Services, our mold remediation process covers everything from scientific testing to third-party clearance testing to guarantee your property is safe and healthy when our mold remediation services are completed. When it comes to your property and health, we leave nothing to chance. Our service is unparalleled in this industry, and has to be experienced to be believed.
Locating the mold on your Michigan property takes more than sticking a strip of tape on a dirty surface. Mold spreads easily, so GRS technicians take air and surface tests in all obviously mold contaminated areas as well as in surrounding spaces. Our scientific mold testing can ascertain the types of levels of mold contamination throughout your property, including in the air. With this advanced level of mold testing, we craft a mold remediation protocol that will return your property to a normal fungal ecology.
Guardian Recovery Services also cares about the items inside your property that have been contaminated with mold. This even includes documents and photos. All materials are evaluated and stored in a secure facility off-site, where they are cleaned, bubble-wrapped, and stored until our on-site mold remediation services are completed.
Mold is a resilient organism that will fight back against cleaning efforts, and that includes spreading rapidly through the air. Before mold remediation begins, GRS technicians build ‘containment chambers’ onsite to prevent cross-contamination to areas not infested with mold. Mold contaminated areas to be cleaned are effectively isolated from the rest of your property under negative pressure containment.
The Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) and the National Association of Mold Professionals (NAMP) sets practical standards for restoration and cleaning that incorporate the field of psychometry, which involves the manipulation of temperature and relative humidity to remove moisture and dry a property quickly. Our mold remediation team uses specialized equipment to detect, measure, and monitor a property’s moisture levels, as well as industrial air movers and dehumidifiers to remove the moisture from the floors, ceilings, and walls of your Michigan home or business.
Following NAMP and IICRC guidelines, the mold affected areas are set up under negative pressure by use of HEPA air scrubbing units and the temporary containment measures. All visible mold growth on porous materials is safely removed from the premises. If there is mold growth on framing or substrate, mechanical or chemical removal is performed. This either kills the mold spores or removes them from the surface to allow them to be collected by the HEPA air scrubbers or HEPA vacuumed.
Once all visible mold is removed or treated, the entire contained area undergoes a thorough HEPA vacuuming that includes walls, ceilings, floors, and any other surface that can be physically touched. Then we perform an anti-microbial wipe down on every surface. Then, a second round of HEPA vacuuming is performed. The HEPA air scrubbers are left on-site for 24 hours to finalize cleaning the air.
To ensure your peace of mind, final clearance mold testing is performed by a third party to ensure the project has been returned to normal fungal ecology and is deemed safe and healthy. By involving a reputable third party to complete mold testing, the quality of our mold remediation services is established, and your safety and satisfaction are guaranteed.
After the final clearance testing verifies that your property is at safe and healthy ecological levels, we remove all containment materials and mold remediation equipment. At this point, we return your cleaned and safe items from our secure storage site to your home or business.
Throughout the mold remediation process, Guardian Recovery Services handles the insurance claim process, including dealing with any insurance adjusters or representatives. We are beholden to no insurance companies, and we insist on no shortcuts. GRS is an independent, established, and stable mold remediation company; therefore, we can be patient and do the job right, guaranteeing your satisfaction before receiving any payment for services.

From the minute I called Ben, he was comforting, confident, and had someone at my home within an hour. Guardian treated my home like theirs; no mess, and perfect service. My wife and I felt amazing the way we were educated and treated. Like most people, I have no idea about plumbing and water. I was educated with care and professionalism.
