Mold Removal & Remediation in Southeast Florida

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 after a big flood in your basement. At Marathon Restoration, 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 Miami mold removal technicians use proven deodorization techniques to get rid of mold odors as part of the process.

Techniques for Effective Mold & Odor Removal

When we show up to your property, our crew is prepared with protective gear and the equipment needed to contain and remove mold from your home. There are many types of mold remediation techniques which can be used to remove mold from your property. Our priority is to determine the extent of the mold damage and use the technique which will be most effective.

Idaho Mold Testing

Mold Inspections

We use state-of-the-art equipment to accurately map out the spread of the mold throughout your property. Often, mold is hiding behind walls, cabinets, and baseboards. Until we know the extent of the damage, we won't know the right steps to take to get rid of it. 

Idaho Mold Abatement

Mold Abatement

With careful isolation of the affected areas, we halt the spread of mold spores to other areas of your building. We use negative air machines and plastic sheeting for mold containment while we clean and remove mold from the space. We have the equipment ready for full mold abatement and remediation services. 

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.

If you need any emergency damage restoration services, simply call our 24-hour emergency number.
