Mold Damage Remediation
Mold and mildew lurk unseen in your home’s walls, floors, and ceilings and spread to the point where they start causing serious health issues for you and your family. Delta Disaster Services’ mold damage remediation team will come to your home, assess the mold damage, remove odors, remediate the mold infestation, and work to address the root cause of the problem. Our goal is to provide cleaner, safer environments for you and your family.
What is Mold?
Mold is a type of fungus that flourishes in damp, wet, warm environments. It grows on food, other plants, and even on or inside the walls and floors of our homes. Low airflow and dim light can contribute to mold growth, which is why it’s often found in basements and inside walls. Mold is made up of millions of tiny spores that when breathed in, can be a serious health risk, especially for children, elderly people, and anyone with respiratory health problems.
Mold can grow pretty much anywhere, but you need to be especially vigilant if you live in a warm, humid climate or have experienced flooding or water damage in your home. Delta Disaster Services looks at the big picture when it comes to mold and mildew. We address the root cause of your home’s mold problem to stop the mold from coming back after we treat the current infestation. Our technicians are also experts in water damage, so we can identify and repair any underlying water damage issues that are making your home susceptible to harmful mold growth.
What is Black Mold?
Black mold – scientific name Stachybotrys chartarum – is a type of mold that’s often referred to as the most dangerous, toxic form of mold you’ll encounter. However, it’s important to know that while black mold is certainly dangerous, other types of mold can be extremely harmful to your health too, so you shouldn’t ignore mold growth in your home just because it’s grey or green in color instead of black. Black mold produces highly toxic byproducts called mycotoxins that are extremely harmful when inhaled. Symptoms of black mold exposure include nausea, fatigue, respiratory problems, skin inflammation, and mental impairment.
If you find mold in your home, it’s crucial that you do not touch or disturb it in any way. This will help decrease the chance of the mold spreading, and it will prevent even more spores from entering the air you’re breathing. A patch of mold the size of a postage stamp can contain millions of spores and disturbing it can release toxins into the air.
Delta Disaster Services uses the latest mold detection technology to determine your property’s overall mold damage and provide you with the best long-term solution to eliminate mold damage in your home. If you suspect you have mold in your home due to a musty odor, visible mold, or mold allergy symptoms in you or your family, Delta will come as soon as possible to perform a full assessment.
What to do if you find mold:

What NOT to do if you find mold:

Asbestos Abatement Services
Delta Disaster Services team of experts will thoroughly inspect your home or business to detect the presence of asbestos. If we find any, we will properly and safely remove all infected materials and replace them with asbestos-free materials. We’re on top of all the most recent laws and regulations relating to asbestos, so you can trust we’ll do the job right.
What is Asbestos?
Asbestos is a heat-resistant fiber silicate mineral that can be woven into other materials and used in construction projects. It was a popular choice for building contractors for many years and was primarily used in insulation, floor tiles, roof shingles, siding, caulking and adhesives, and more. It’s particularly common in homes built between 1950 and 1970, but it dates back much further and can be present in newer homes as well.
Asbestos particles are extremely dangerous, and when inhaled, can lead to very serious health problems. When asbestos is disturbed – which can happen just by walking through a room with asbestos materials in it – its particles are released into the air. Asbestos poisoning may not present symptoms for several years after exposure. Symptoms include chest pain, a dry cough, shortness of breath, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disorder, and more.
Asbestos poisoning has been linked to lung cancer, mesothelioma, asbestosis (hardening on the lungs), pulmonary hypertension, and damage to the immune and digestive systems.
Lead Paint Removal Services
Lead-based paint exposure can be extremely harmful to both adults and children. Lead dust, lead paint chips, and contaminated soil have all been shown to cause serious illnesses and are especially dangerous for children. If you’re a lover of historic properties, it’s even more important that you have a professional do a thorough inspection for lead paint. Lead paint was extremely common in homes built before 1978 and can still be present in homes built later.
Delta Disaster Services will test your home or business for lead paint and treat any affected areas by removing the lead paint and repainting with non-lead-based paints and coatings. You must be trained and licensed to perform lead paint removal, and the Delta Disaster Services team has all the necessary training and licenses to safely perform the intricate process of lead paint removal.
Not only is lead paint dangerous, but you could even face a hefty fine if you don’t have your building inspected and, if necessary, treated for lead paint. Delta Disaster Services will handle the entire lead paint removal and replacement process from start to finish. You’ll end up with a beautiful home or business that’s safer for everyone.
