Mold Removal: Once the test results come back and we learn the toxicity levels of the mold, we can begin removing it.

Mold Restoration: With all signs of mold eliminated from your property, we then start the process of restoring your property.

Mold Removal Process
At the first sign of mold infestation, you have to call certified mold cleaning and restoration services right away. That’s because in many cases, the mold may have already contaminated the insides of walls long before you noticed the signs, and only through a mold removal specialist can you make sure every bit of mold is spotted and tested. The duration of the mold eradication process depends on the extent of the infestation. If the mold isn’t toxic and hasn’t contaminated a significant area in your property, a couple of days should be enough to get the job done. In extreme cases of toxic mold infestation, however, the job could take weeks. You might even need to be housed somewhere else for safety reasons. In any case, ASAP Restoration will work with your insurance for a stress-free and streamlined process of paying for the mold removal and housing. That’s the type of mold restoration services Phoenix residents have come to trust, and we provide in spades.
Types of Mold Damage
For mold damage in homes and businesses, there are three common types: Aspergillus: The most common type of mold, aspergillus can cause allergic reactions in humans. This family of mold is found in food as well as in home air conditioning systems and ducts. Cladosporium: This type of mold is also commonly found in homes and businesses. Its appearance resembles black pepper, and is classified as non-toxic. However, exposure to its spores can still trigger allergic reactions and irritate your skin. Stachybotrys: Also referred to as black mold, stachybotrys is a toxic type of mold that poses a health risk to anyone who comes into contact with it. Stringent safety measures such as the use of protective gear need to be implemented when removing stachybotrys mold damage.
Identifying Mold Damage
Telling one type of mold from another could be difficult, and that’s why we do not recommend that you remove mold yourself. Different types of mold could come in several colors, may have a similar appearance, or could be more dangerous than others. Expert detection is crucial, and the only way to identify mold spores accurately is to get them under a microscope and tested. That’s why the moment our mold removal specialist gets samples, we readily send them to a reputable laboratory to identify the exact strain.
