Mold Remediation Services in Schaumburg, IL

We work fast to isolate the mold and prevent its spread before we start cleaning.

Mold typically develops when excess moisture or water is left sitting over a long period of time. This could be invisible, such as in a crawl space as a result of a leaking pipe or a big flood in your basement. At Firecon Construction, we offer thorough mold and odor removal services to help find the source of the mold and clean and restore your home to its previous state. Our professional mold removal technicians use proven deodorization techniques to get rid of mold odors as part of the process.

Mold Remediation
Mold Containment & Isolation

Mold spores are airborne and will spread throughout the property if not adequately contained before remediation begins. We use negative air pressure machines with HEPA filters to prevent the spread of mold.

Mold Testing
Inspection: Finding the Source of the Mold

Cleaning up mold without determining the source is futile. We prioritize finding the source of the moisture - a leaking pipe or roof, for instance – and make the necessary repairs as part of the mold remediation process. 

Contents Restoration
Mold-Damaged Contents Restoration

While mold can destroy the materials and structure in your building, it will also damage your belongings and soft furnishings. Our contents restoration crew will salvage as much as possible.

Mold Equipment
State-of-the-Art Equipment

We use moisture meters and other scanners to map out the extent of the mold before beginning to tear out the damaged structures. Our goal is to remove the mold-damaged materials, not the unaffected ones.

Frequently Asked Questions

Anytime the moisture levels in your home are at 60% or higher, mold can grow. What’s frustrating for many property owners is that they don’t see a puddle on the floor or water dripping from the ceiling. When mold grows, the source of the moisture is usually hidden under floorboards or behind walls.

It could be. Because mold spores are microscopic and airborne, you’ll end up breathing them into your lungs. Depending on the type of mold and how well your immune system functions, you may develop some serious health symptoms that could end up being the result of mold. That’s why a mold remediation company takes mold removal so seriously. The space affected by mold is isolated and contained during cleaning so the spores won’t spread to other areas of the house, and the remediation team stays suited up in Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) during the process.

For the majority of surfaces in your home, bleach won’t actually get rid of your mold problem. It’s the “iceberg effect.” Visible mold is usually a small percentage of the actual amount of mold growth. Bleach can’t kill mold on porous surfaces like wood, and while tile or fiberglass surfaces can be cleaned with bleach, often the mold has spread far deeper. The reason why mold remediation companies don’t recommend DIY cleanup isn’t because they want to make more money; they know, in their experience, that a mold problem is usually far more invasive than can be seen with the naked eye. Simply cleaning the surfaces can provide false assurances that you got rid of the mold, only to have it come back time and time again.

Sometimes mold remediation is included if the cause of the mold was a “covered peril” like a burst hot water heater or water damage caused by firefighters extinguishing a fire in your house. Gradual water damage - like from a leaking pipe or hose - will often cause mold growth, but your insurance coverage will usually not cover that by claiming that it was caused by poor maintenance or neglect. If your insurance company denies your claim, you should request an inspection from a mold remediation company who can help you document the source of the mold

If the inspection/assessment process was able to pinpoint the source and cause of the mold growth, once that source is repaired, you can be relatively confident about the success of remediation. Ask if your restoration technician has the IICRC certification for “Applied Microbial Remediation.” You can also request a “post remediation mold clearance” from a third-party mold inspector to re-test the area for any remaining traces of mold before the area is treated with a sealer or encapsulant to resist future mold growth.
