Mold Removal


Our Mold Services

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 professionals at Guardian Recovery Services. We offer professional-grade, safe, and effective mold removal services all over Michigan.

Superior Mold Removal Contractors, Based In Madison Heights

Our mold removal 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 floors, ceilings, and walls of your home or business.

Guardian Recovery Services, based in Madison Heights, also uses only OSHA-approved cleaning agents to clean and remove mold and resulting odors from your Michigan property. With a NAMP-certified Mold Remediator on staff, we take surface and air samples to test for mold levels, interpret the lab report, and write a full mold remediation protocol. This type of scientific mold testing can typically find underlying issues such as mold growth in a wall cavity or behind base molding that may be hidden.

Mold Containment During The Mold Removal Process

Containment is another area where Guardian Recovery Services goes beyond the standard service. After ascertaining the extent of your mold infestation, our mold removal team builds ‘containment chambers’ on-site to prevent cross-contamination while cleaning the mold affected areas. Even your property is removed, cleaned, safely stored off-site, and returned when the mold remediation process is completed.

Understanding Mold & Mold Remediation

Mold is something that everyone knows exists, but few understand. Most adults recognize mold when they see it, but how do you get rid of it? And how much mold is too much mold? Mold can certainly be a frustrating fungus, especially in Michigan, where we experience long, damp seasons. Here are a few tips to remember when you encounter mold on your property:

  • Mold spores are present in every indoor and outdoor environment.
  • Mold spores are microscopic, meaning that individual spores can only be viewed with a microscope.
  • Mold produces a strong, damp, musty odor.
  • Mold thrives in wet and humid conditions. If you’ve recently had major water damage and flooding, or particularly humid conditions, you could possibly develop mold troubles.
  • Mold problems can only be handled adequately by mold remediation professionals.

IICRC Standards and Mold Removal

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.
