Though you can easily find DIY mold removal tips online, we strongly urge you to hire a professional as these home remedies are not long-term solutions.

If you believe you’ve found mold in your home, contact us right away.

Can Smoke Damage My Home?

If you’ve encountered fire or another disaster that has led to your home being filled with smoke, it’s important to call a qualified restoration company right away.

Smoke takes a toll on every surface it touches, and there are different types of residue that smoke can leave behind.

Depending on the amount of smoke damage, your home could be in need of soot removal and deodorization, resurfacing, ductwork cleaning, item removal, and more.

What is Asbestos?

Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral added to construction materials for its fire-retardant properties. Although asbestos was effective in reducing fire damage, it came with a heavy cost—causing lung cancer and other diseases for workers who inhaled microscopic asbestos particles.

If your home or building was constructed before 1978, then there is a good chance it contains some form of asbestos. It could be located in ceiling tiles, flashing, shingles, siding, paint, floors, and more.

The only time asbestos will pose a threat to your family or tenants is when it starts to break down, flake away, or suffer water damage. This could cause asbestos particles to become airborne and lodge in a person’s lungs.
