How to deal with pet urine on the carpet?

Our steam cleaning equipment heats water to a very high temperature to sanitize the carpet, and then sucks up the urine to remove it from the carpeting.

After mattress cleaning, the room and bed only require 5 minutes to settle. The bedroom is almost immediately ready for use; there is no long wait period. This makes a professional mattress cleaning so convenient.

Mold Inspection & Testing

What should I do if I think I have a mold problem?

If you think that mold lives in your property, the first thing you have to do is contact a mold specialist near you for an inspection. Mold can be a serious wellness hazard, and it is important to find the source of the problem and take steps to get rid of it. Mold spores can cause respiratory troubles and they can also trigger allergic reactions or asthma. In addition, mold can also cause structural damage to your office or home. If you suspect that you have mold, do not try to take it away by yourself.

How is mold testing performed?

If you found mold in your house or office, it is time to have the location tested ASAP. Our experts will collect samples from the right places to get the information you need. These samples are then analyzed in a lab to define the type, toxicity, and concentration of mold present. Mold testing can identify hidden mold growth and assess the risk of exposure. Mold testing is an essential part of protecting your health and ensuring a safe indoor environment.

How often should mold testing be done?

Mold testing should be done every 6 months, after a leak or flood, or whenever you suspect mold growth, to guarantee that there is no mold increase in the home. If mold is found, it should be removed immediately to prevent it from spreading. UCM Carpet Cleaning of Gaithersburg can help to remove mold from your home safely and effectively.

Mold Removal & Remediation

What are some common places where mold grows?

Mold is a type of fungus that can grow both indoors and outdoors. Mold thrives in warm, damp, and humid environments and can often be found in basements, attics, bathrooms, and kitchens. Also, you can find it on the walls, ceilings, and furniture, under wallpaper, and behind drywall. If you recognized mold spots in your property, it is important to contact a mold removal specialist for proper assessment and cleaning. UCM Carpet Cleaning of Gaithersburg offers mold removal services that will eliminate mold growth from your home or business.

What are some common causes of mold growth in homes?

There are a number of common causes of mold growth in homes, including:

  • leaks in plumbing, HVAC systems, roofs;
  • flood;
  • high humidity;
  • bad ventilation;
  • poor construction of walls;
  • damp basements.

If you suspect that there is mold in your home, it is important to contact a mold remediation company.

Can I remove mold myself?

It depends on your capabilities and on the extent of the mold growth. According to the EPA, any area of mold growth greater than 10 sq ft should be handled by a professional mold remediator, but even smaller areas could be mishandled due to inexperience or lack of knowledge.

How can I prevent mold growth?

  1. Keep your home clean and free of clutter to discourage mold growth.
  2. Make sure that your home has good ventilation to allow air to circulate and prevent moisture from accumulating.
  3. Be proactive to check for water leaks.
  4. In the event of a known leak, make sure your property is cleared of water and dried completely within 24 to 48 hours, before mold has a chance to form.
  5. Be mindful of high relative humidity indoors. Mold grows freely with any source of moisture, including humidity.

By taking these steps, you can help keep your home mold-free.
