Mold - Tiptop staff members are Certified Mold Remediation experts and Water Loss Specialists, Our skilled technicians performed and completed thousands of successful mold remediation jobs and follow
accepted industry guidelines (IICRC S520), with other applicable standard. The purpose of remediation is to remove mold growth and restore the property to a normal condition. We inspect all areas adjacent to the mold growth along with the areas where water may have seeped, such as wall cavities, basements and crawl spaces. The first step is to stop the moisture at its source. We then make sure the affected area is contained, or sealed-off, from the rest of the structure to prevent cross-contamination so that mold spores do not spread to other parts of the building. Air ducts are sealed, containment barriers erected, and then negative pressurization is achieved. Affected surfaces are cleaned, dried, or removed and properly disposed of contaminated materials. We generally recommend the use of a dehumidifier for over-all moisture control.
Tiptop Restoration can help with any crawlspace cleaning. Standing water in your home's crawlspace (under house) can cause a variety of structural problems and health concerns. Excess humidity caused by standing water in your crawlspace can cause mold growth on the wooden foundation and the bottom of sub flooring. It can also cause warping or buckling of sub flooring and mold growth in the living area of the building. If your home has HVAC (heating, ventilation, air conditioning) ducting in the crawlspace and the system is compromised with excess moisture, microbial amplification may result. All of these issues can possibly create unhealthy indoor air quality.
