Mold is a natural part of our ecosystem, so there will always be some amount of it in your home. It becomes a problem when the volume of mold reaches a certain threshold, or when there are toxigenic species present. In that case, you need mold remediation. We follow strict protocol to ensure we get the job done safely without causing further harm to your home.

When you choose Elite Moisture Solutions for mold remediation, we will:

  • Seal off the affected area and HVAC system to prevent spores from traveling.
  • Determine the source of the excess moisture.
  • Remove damaged materials and store them in secure bags.
  • Clean up using a HEPA vacuum and antimicrobial solutions.
  • Return for a follow-up inspection to make sure no further treatment is needed.

Here’s an example of a mold remediation project in Durham so you can see the quality of service we provide.

Mold Inspections

If you notice a persistent moldy smell in your home or if your family is experiencing ongoing allergy symptoms, it’s crucial to arrange for an inspection immediately. Mold can rapidly spread, especially in humid environments. Early detection of mold can prevent extensive damage and save substantial repair costs over time. Act promptly and schedule a thorough mold inspection with Elite Moisture.

What to Expect During Your Mold Inspection in Durham:

Visual Inspection

Our technicians will conduct a thorough visual examination to identify areas affected by mold.

Humidity Testing

We will measure humidity levels to determine if they are conducive to mold growth.

Moisture Source Identification

We’ll locate any sources of excess moisture contributing to the mold problem.

Mold Testing

Our team will test both surfaces and the air for mold spores to assess contamination levels.

Crawl Space Mold Removal

Importance of Regular Crawl Space Inspections

Since much of the air in your home originates from the crawl space, regular mold inspections are essential. Mold in the crawl space often signifies water infiltration, leading to excess moisture that promotes mold, mildew, and structural damage. Our technicians not only remove existing mold but also provide crawl space encapsulation to prevent future moisture issues.

Professional Mold Removal: Protect Your Family

It’s crucial to rely on professionals for mold removal, as DIY methods like bleach can exacerbate the problem by spreading spores and contaminating the air. Our certified experts use specialized equipment and protective gear to safely eliminate mold, ensuring your home’s environment remains healthy for your family.

Elite Moisture Solutions’ Satisfaction Guarantee

At Elite Moisture Solutions, we are dedicated to delivering exceptional mold removal services in Durham. We offer a one-year warranty on all our services to ensure your satisfaction. If any issues arise after treatment, we will address them promptly to restore your peace of mind.

Interior Mold Remediation

When you discover mold in your home, it’s important to resist the urge to handle it yourself, as this can create additional problems. Attempting to clean mold with household products can release spores into the air, negatively impacting your family’s health and indoor air quality. Instead, it’s advisable to leave the mold undisturbed and contact Elite Moisture Solutions for professional assistance.

Our interior mold remediation services includes:

  • Preventing mold from spreading.
  • Remove any items that have been damaged by mold in sealed bags.
  • Clean up mold spores with a HEPA vacuum, then sanitize the area.
  • Take additional samples afterward, complete with laboratory analysis.

I had a gentleman show up to inspect a mold issue. He was very professional, on time, courteous, and helpful. We had a bit of a precarious problem (a dead cat was found in our crawl space) and he handled it professionally and privately to not disturb the kids. The man deserves an award! Thanks for all that you do!

My family and I are exceedingly satisfied with the services provided by Elite Moisture Solutions. Ben was responsible for managing the mold remediation in our home. As an environmental health professional with valid concerns for my family's health from the mold problem, I was impressed by Ben's knowledge-base and technical expertise in mold remediation. He did a superior job in listening carefully to our concerns, walked us through the process in how he and his team would effectively remove the mold from our home, and ensured all measures were taken to make the job an overall success. He also provided solutions to keep the mold from growing back. Thank you, Ben, and your team, for such an outstanding performance.

Elite performed mold removal and crawlspace encapsulation. They were easy to work with and did a great job. The one negative in the experience was the unexpected cost of reinforcing some floor beams, which had water and mold damage that was not seen until they pulled out the insulation. Highly recommend this company!

Elite Moisture Solutions is excellent. We had extensive mold issues due to what our home owner's insurance called "as series of unfortunate events." Elite came in, discussed the damage, took spore samples and tested them, and then worked with our home owner's insurance adjuster to get as much covered as possible by insurance. Their work crew was excellent, their home office staff was communicative and a sweetheart to work with. When anything came up that we were concerned about (ie our vents were old and disgusting), they repaired things beyond the call of duty. Chris, the owner, was the one to come and take final samples after all work was completed, and our house was healthy again! We liked their service so much, I recommended them within a week of our house's completion! And, our neighbor took them on and loved them too. If you need work done, Elite is the one to call!

Our home was built in 1994 and the old (primitive) method of crawl space grading and a corner drainage pipe stopped working (the pipe clogged after 30 years). Chris and his team, who are very professional, assessed the situation and presented available options (as well as inspecting for mold). We decided to go with the full encapsalation and our crawl space moisture issues as well as the potential for mold are gone. Highly recommended and it was a pleasure to support a local business.

Our crawlspace was in desperate need of attention with standing water constantly collecting after heavy rainstorms. I called Elite for a quote and on the same day, Chris shows up and provides an estimate before he left my house! Based on his knowledge of mold remediation, sump pumps and french drains, and his incredible professionalism - we booked him for the job. His crew was on time every day, and gave a detailed description of what would be accomplished that day and they always came through. For anyone in Downtown Raleigh or the Raleigh area, I would highly recommend Elite Moisture Solutions!
