How Do I Test For Mold in my Portland Home?
How can you tell if you have mold? If you had a water leak or flooding and experienced standing water or prolonged (more than 24 hours) moisture, there is a good chance that water seeped behind your drywall or under your floorboards. If not thoroughly dried, the conditions were likely ripe for microbial growth, including mold. You might see greenish-blackish growth in cracks in corners or you might detect a musty odor. If you have experienced any of this, call the mold detection experts at Emergency Response Team right away to deploy our Portland mold detection services.

How To Get Rid of Mold in Portland Homes:
Once your building tests positive for mold, it is important to remove it promptly and completely. The mold itself will need to be removed, as well as the items that allowed it to grow in the first place. If you are uncertain as to the proper removal of mold in your Portland home, rest assured; the experts at Emergency Response Team can help. We have been removing mold from Portland buildings for 8 years. First, the mold needs to be detected. Often flooring and walls must be removed for proper inspection, and to assess the extent of the mold growth. It is important to use proper safety equipment when dealing with mold removal (gloves, masks, and glasses). Once detected, all surfaces must be scrubbed with bleach and water, or another solution that will effectively kill the mold spores. Next, the areas must be thoroughly dried. Often, commercial air movers are used to rapidly and completely dry all affected areas. Then flooring and wall boards can be replaced. For quick response, call (615) 307-1828 for a Portland mold inspection by Emergency Response Team.

WHAT CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING:
★★★★★ - "I had a water heater rupture, left water standing everywhere in the unit where it sat, and in three of five rooms in another unit. They were at my place before the day was out, cleaned up all the water, tore out all the affected materials and had several air movers/dehumidifiers going to dry out the place quickly. I was able to begin the rehab about a week after the mishap, which ultimately saved me in lost rent. These guys really know what they are doing!"

Keith Seal in Nashville, TN2016-09-12
★★★★★ - "Great Company. We live in an apartment and they came out to get rid of the smoke residue from a fire next door. Worked with me so that I didn't have to file a claim with my insurance company. The apartment smells great."

★★★★★ - "Love this company. Bill came out and helped me through the insurance process and made everything seamless"
Khoa Hua in Nashville, TN2016-09-12
★★★★★ - "Did not know these guys could do all they could do. My wife called these guys at 1am when we had a supply line rupture. I wasn't sold on the fact that it was an emergency but the wife was. They had a crew out within an hour, they had a vacuum attached to a truck that sucked up all the standing water. They left a lot of equipment to get the drying process started and came back the next morning to check the equipment and they helped us communicate with the insurance company in regards to the level of the loss. I would recommend these guys any day of the week. If you call tell them to bring the cool Thermal camera, it will show things that are not visible to the naked eye."
Rosten Peters in Nashville, TN2016-09-12
★★★★★ - "We had an issue with mold building behind our shower in the closet and they came and removed the mold and dried out the area! They are easy to communicate with and very helpful with their advice!"
