Understanding mold

Mold is a type of fungus that thrives in multicellular filaments called hyphae which produce spores. Mold can be found both indoors and outdoors. Given that it thrives in moist environments, most San Diego households experience mold. When mold occurs in your home, one of the best solutions is having a professional perform a mold inspection to determine the type and level of mold present. Bill Howe Restoration and Flood offers free mold inspection services.

Here is what you can expect from Bill Howe Mold Remediation Services

Inspection

Bill Howe offers a free visual mold inspection. Our first step is to thoroughly check your home for any possible signs of mold. We then recommend a treatment for removing the contamination.

Estimate

After carrying out a thorough inspection, we provide a detailed estimate on the services we will offer. Our prices are budget friendly and fair, and our services are tailored to each client’s specific needs.

Containment

For containment, all mold-infested areas are sealed off, and cooling systems, fans, and heaters are shut off. The purpose is to keep mold spores from spreading to uninfected areas of the property.

Air filtration

To eliminate all active spores, the home’s HVAC unit is fitted with premium air filters. In severe cases. Where the level of contamination is high, HEPA-filtered vacuums may be used. They efficiently eliminate all spores that may turn into fungi, thus preventing further contamination.

Mold clean up

We offer expert mold removal services. We use antimicrobial and anti-fungal substances to clean mold off your surfaces. Areas that are heavily infested with mold are removed and replaced. Non-porous surfaces like sinks can be cleaned by wiping off the fungi. To prevent future infestation, a biocide can be added.

Sanitization

Once all the mold has been removed, your house must be sanitized at the end of the mold remediation process. At this stage, some items in your house may undergo a thorough cleaning. To eliminate any unpleasant smell, fogging equipment may be used.

Mold Removal Vs. Mold Remediation

Mold removal suggests the complete eradication of all mold and all mold-causing micro-organisms. This, however, is not possible since mold spores naturally exist in the environment. Instead of promises of complete mold removal, we offer mold remediation to contain the contamination and prevent mold from spreading to other areas. Our mold remediation services return your home to their natural levels.

House cleaning performed on a regular basis helps to keep mold at bay.

Testimonials

Kathy Bowman

We have used Bill Howe Plumbing for many years anytime we have an emergency plumbing issue, because we trust this company to respond quickly in sending out reliable employees and will give us an accurate diagnosis. Bill Howe Plumbing is the only company we call for help.

Our upstairs bathroom toilet flooded, causing water to flood down onto our kitchen ceiling, causing water damage in both rooms. Within an hour of calling Bill Howe, Carlos Paredes, EMS Lead Technician arrived to assess the flood damage. He quickly found the source of the flood and presented us with a clear water damage remediation plan. We had met Carlos earlier this year when our water heater flooded our laundry room and he was sent out to evaluate the water damage. We knew we were in good hands again when Carlos arrived for this emergency, because we knew him to be trustworthy, he communicated each step of the process clearly in a way for us to know exactly how the damage was going to be fixed and made us feel we were right in calling Bill Howe.

Gary Lee

Bill Howe / Carlos did great job remediating kitchen / dining area after water damage. Very professional, courteous, efficient. Always showed up on time. Did excellent work. Kept me in loop each step of way. All of the workers showed great attention to detail and high respect for my property. Definitely would use them again!

Ruth W.

Best plumbing service I have used. We had a shower faucet leak that we didn’t know about until water came pouring through the ceiling into the living room. Bill Howe’s plumber, Tris, was there immediately, carefully located the leak and was able to stop further damage. Within an hour, the flood remediators came and had their fans set up to prevent mold. As the moisture was extensive, they were meticulous in locating anywhere that had been damaged. Joseph was particularly great in making certain every bit of moisture went away. Each person who came was polite, neat, respectful and helpful. When we were finally able to dry out the house, Bill Howe also had a remodeling crew that came in and returned my house to almost as good as new. Over the three weeks, every service person appeared when they said they would and did what they said they would, in spades. It is so nice to be able to depend on a good company, particularly when there is an unexpected disaster. Will use them for all of my plumbing needs in the future!

Stevie S.

During the Labor Day holiday weekend, we had a kitchen flood that not only damaged the kitchen, but also leaked through two walls, and was even pouring to the outside of the home. This is our rental home, so by the time our tenants called us when they discovered the leak, we responded to see how big the leak was and if we could stop it, and slow down the damage.

We called a couple of plumbing services first because we had a home warranty company, but it was clear when the first plumber arrived that he was not going to be able to handle this call. Bill Howe was recommended to us, and we were told, these guys are expensive, but they are good! This was truly an underestimation, I was skeptical, but when we saw our investment home getting soggy, we made the call. I’ve already written a review about the Plumber that we got with Bill Howe, He was excellent! See my prior review about Mike from Bill Howe, but once the water is stopped, and the pipes are closed off, what do you do about all the soggy carpet, floors, walls, and cabinets… Well in the humidity of Summer in San Diego, just opening the windows and letting the sun dry it up is not a practical option, it’s not going to work. Once the plumber was done, a remediation team came, and essentially there job is to find all the areas that are wet, and cut out what can not be dried out, like drywall, that particle board inside kitchen cabinets…that’s right, they may look fancy on the outside, but chances are that the box portions are just pressed wood that will absorb water like a sponge, and then forever be deformed.

Francisco, and Juan were our remediation and demo team, and these guys were extremely professional, guiding us through the trenches that were once our walls. There was a lot of work to be done over several days, both the guys were always on time, kept the area isolated and safe for our tenants, and kept us informed of all the work they needed to perform. We are very happy that these guys were our remediation team. Thanks to Francisco and Juan, you guys really do great work, and I appreciate it!!

What David says about us

Service for new garbage disposal. My ancient garbage disposal quit working, went online to get Bill Howe’s number, immediately received and accepted chat to describe my needs. Prompt call back to schedule an appointment, service tech Allen was out same morning, which was important to fit my work schedule. Job estimate was clear, work done fully to my expectations, area left clean, and price was very fair.
I was not surprised — I have used Bill Howe plumbers for several other tasks in the past. I have always found their staff to be helpful, attentive, and the plumbers very courteous and capable.

Bill Howe never fails us! We had a drain overflow, and Scott came (on a Saturday) to look at it and offer solution. He was punctual, professional, and extremely helpful. I should also praise the main office for always being helpful and always finding solutions. Very grateful to have you in San Diego!

Cory was our technician on this job. We had a time sensitive repair issue and Bill Howe understood and assisted with getting the job done quickly.
Cory was on time to start the job and finished it quickly. Upon his leaving our home he’s was courteous, very knowledgeable, explaining what the problem was and how he fixed it. Very good communication and this is the way it’s has always been when we use Bill Howe plumbing.
Great company to work with.
Thanks Cory.

What Bridgett says about us

I am extremely happy with the service we received from Bill Howe Plumbing. We were given an incorrect diagnosis of our main sewer line from another vendor, but Bill Howe’s servicemen came out for a second opinion, correctly diagnosed our problem and resolved our back up issues. We will continue to use Bill Howe for all our future plumbing needs!

Thank you Bill Howe Plumbing.
