Mold removal is not a “do it yourself job”. Mold removal requires professional chemicals, equipment and training. Treating mold with household chemicals such as bleach can cause mold to spread and create more costly issues in your home. Contact Champion for professional mold removal.

Each Champion technician is trained on proper mold removal / mold remediation procedures in accordance with the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) S-520.

When removing mold, all work is performed to the same industry standards, regardless of the type of mold. The location of the mold growth, however, may determine the removal methodology.

For example, commercial mold removal, may require additional considerations for building operations and occupant restrictions that a remediator may not encounter on a residential project.

If you feel your property owner or landlord not been responsive to concerns you’ve expressed regarding mold or mildew exposure, you can contact your local board of health or housing authority. Applicable codes, insurance, inspection, legal, and similar issues about mold generally fall under state and local (not federal) jurisdiction. You can also contact your county or state health department about mold issues in your area to learn about what mold assessment and remediation services they offer.

Biocides are substances that can destroy living organisms. The use of a chemical or biocide that kills organisms such as mold (chlorine bleach, for example) is not recommended as a routine practice during mold cleanup. There may be instances, however, when professional judgment may indicate its use (for example, when immune-compromised individuals are present). In most cases, it is not possible or desirable to sterilize an area; a background level of mold spores will remain – these spores will not grow if the moisture problem has been resolved. If you choose to use disinfectants or biocides, always ventilate the area and exhaust the air to the outdoors. Never mix chlorine bleach solution with other cleaning solutions or detergents that contain ammonia because toxic fumes could be produced.

Please note: Dead mold may still cause allergic reactions in some people, so it is not enough to simply kill the mold, it must also be removed.

If we are able to get out to your property in a timely manner and begin the drying process immediately, you significantly reduce the risk of developing mold.

No, bleach will only remove the visible mold, which will probably visually re-occur within 10-14 days. Anti-Microbial chemicals must be properly used to kill mold.

No, mold will continue to grow until it’s completely killed and removed.

Exposure to mold can cause health effects in some people. Some people are more sensitive to mold then others. Mold exposure causes various symptoms including nasal and sinus congestion, stuffiness, eye irritation, respiratory problems, throat irritation, skin irritation, and/or headache.

There is no defined time frame to predict when mold will grow in carpet. For any material to support common indoor mold growth, it must:

be organic,

be damp or wet,

have a moderate temperature (68-86ºF),

be in a stagnant air environment, and

have these conditions present for several days.

Most tufted carpet is made of plastic face yarns and backings, and synthetic latex. There is nothing organic to support mold in the carpet itself. Therefore, mold cannot technically grow on carpet. However, average household soil is about 40% organic (12% cellulose, 12% protein, 10% oils, 6% food stuffs); therefore, mold can grow on the soil in carpet given the right conditions listed above.

However, if carpet is kept clean and dry, there is little or no possibility for mold growth. Even with soiling and normal household conditions found in most homes, it takes considerable time for mold to grow on carpet soil, and then only if dampness is present.

Mold growth may occur in your home if there is sufficient moisture because mold spores are everywhere. Be on the lookout for these common sources of moisture: flooding, roof leaks, plumbing leaks, drainage problems or condensation resulting from poor or improper ventilation.

Call Champion and have one of their IICRC trained technicians investigate the situation. A mold problem can usually be seen or smelled. Mold can be a concern in the home and should not be allowed to grow. Extensive mold contamination may cause health problem, as well as damage to your home.

Why Choose Champion Cleaning Systems for Mold Remediation?

Mold can grow almost anywhere in a home or business if conditions permit. If there is visible growth on painted wall surfaces, you should be very concerned about what may be growing on the wall’s opposite side. If the wall remains wet for a prolonged period, it’s almost guaranteed that the mold growth on the backside will be worse than on the front. At that point, containing the workspace and removing moldy materials, followed by cleaning of salvageable framing, are the best options.

The IICRC’s 5 Principles Of Mold Remediation by Champion Cleaning Systems

  1. Make sure safety and health precautions are taken by cleanup professionals and occupants. Mold contaminated buildings can be associated with a number of health problems. Anyone involved in the mold remediation process must be protected from exposure through a combination of practices and controls.
  2. A post-cleanup assessment by an independent environmental expert. Effective mold remediation cannot be developed without first determining the extent of the contamination that needs to be removed. To ensure that remediation work is being properly performed, it is highly recommended that appropriate documentation of the remediation process be kept by project management.
  3. Control the mold before it spreads further. Eliminating mold at the source of contamination is essential. Once mold spores spread through the air, it will be much more difficult to capture.
  4. Oversee the proper physical removal of the mold. The mold must be physically removed from the structure. Attempts to isolate mold or remove signs of mold on the surface are not adequate. Note that bleach alone cannot kill mold.
  5. Ensure that moisture is controlled to limit future contamination or recontamination. Mold growth is virtually inevitable if moisture is not controlled. Moisture problems must be identified, located, and corrected or controlled as soon as possible.
