Bozeman Area Mold Remediation

Most Americans spend 90% of their time indoors, which means we all ought to take a closer look at our indoor air quality. Truthfully, mold is everywhere. But elevated levels can be problematic. Mold grows because of moisture, so in our dry Montana climate it typically shows up in poorly ventilated areas or areas that have been affected by water damage. Buffalo Restoration can help you identify the source of the mold and remove the mold completely.

Buffalo Restoration’s source removal techniques for mold remediation follow industry standards. Instead of covering up the problem, we use the following techniques to permanently remove the mold and keep it from spreading elsewhere in the home.

Mold Remediation Process

Inspection

We’ll check out your crawlspace, attic, bathroom or other areas with visible mold to determine the source and scope of the problem.

Containment

We’ll create a containment around the mold before we begin work so that we don’t spread spores throughout the house. We use full PPE gear when working with mold to protect our employees and prevent them from tracking spores through the house when they leave.

Removal

Buffalo uses a number of removal techniques including HEPA vacuuming and scrubbing, and dry ice blasting. Both techniques actually remove the mold from the surface so that it is permanently gone. We’ll also clean and sanitize the entire affected area or room.

Prevention

After the mold has been cleaned, we will consult with you on how to prevent mold in the future.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Do you test for mold?
A: Buffalo Restoration does not test for mold. We can search for excess moisture and abate the mold, but we do not test the air for mold spores.  We recommend calling our office for a referral company who can perform the sampling.

Q: What causes mold?
A: Mold is caused by excess moisture and it feeds off of organic material such as wood, drywall, or dust. It also requires the right level of air humidity.

Q: Can mold spread throughout my house?
A: Yes and no. It all depends on whether the mold spores have been disturbed. Do not try to treat mold on your own. Without the proper containment and protective equipment, you may spread it to other areas of your house. Professionals can isolate the mold and eliminate it completely to prevent any regrowth in the future.

Q: I think I'm having mold related health problems, what should I do?
A: Consult your physician. Unfortunately, we cannot say whether mold is or isn't affecting you. Everyone is different and every mold situation is different.

Q: The color of the mold I see is black, is that bad?
A: Mold is mold, regardless of color. Different kinds of mold affect everyone differently.

Q: Can I use bleach to kill mold?
A: Bleach is corrosive and may be harmful. Mold comes from excess moisture and organic materials so using a liquid bleach may provide temporary remediation, but if not properly dried, can cause more mold in the future. Bleach is most often not a permanent solution to the mold problem.
