Mold Damage

Titan Knows how to Repair Your Home or Business after Mold Damage and Remediation

Mold is a bio-hazard that grows in almost any environment, indoors and out, as long as there is adequate moisture. Because it is found everywhere, it can grow quickly when conditions inside your home are altered because of a broken sump pump, storm damage, or any other reason that permits water to enter into your home. When mold becomes a problem because of overgrowth, it will soon cause damage to a home’s interior structures. After remediation is complete, this damage must be repaired so your home can be restored to its pre-damaged state.

Titan Restoration Construction has a well-deserved reputation for rebuilding and restoring homes and commercial properties at or above local building code requirements. This includes those homes and business sites that have had extensive mold damage in West Palm Beach. After remediation, damaged areas need to be eliminated. This is because spores and mycotoxins can still be present after remediation. Although reduced greatly in number, these substances can still create health effects in individuals who live and work in such locations. Repairs and reconstruction will also greatly decrease the chances of mold growths returning, even if moisture levels become temporarily elevated in the future.

Titan Restoration Construction has the skilled and experienced technicians needed to repair your home the correct way and help you regain the ambiance your home had before. From simple drywall repairs, including tear-downs and re-installations, painting, papering, and trim, such as chair rails and baseboards, to support systems that need to be rebuilt in order to securely support your home’s interior structures, to exterior walls and Exterior Insulation Finishing Systems (EIFS) that have become compromised, we have your needs covered. Repairs are not just completed to the bare minimum, but to regain and restore the look that your family has come to know as ‘home.’ Similarly, if your business has been affected, your customers have come to depend on your physical store’s location, and we will work quickly and efficiently to make sure you are able to reopen your doors as soon as possible.

Vertical Support BeamsWalls must be restabilized on their interiors, through both horizontal and vertical support beams. These need to be solid, with no trace of mold growth, decay or other deterioration. While remediation works well in removing a great deal of mold, spores can still remain and then begin to grow again if moisture is ever introduced to an area occupied by mold. We can rebuild walls, including those with windows of any shape, recessed areas, lighting fixtures, and any other architectural refinements. We finish these to match the rest of the original décor in your home or business, including the minor details that were originally meant to be a part of it.

Interior walls are not the only location in your home or business that have support structures. The load-bearing supports also need to be examined to make sure that there is no issues or problems with their integrity or strength. These rarely need to be replaced, but major problems can arise if they are left in place when they should be removed because of mold damage in West Palm Beach properties.

Floors and ceilings will also need to be replaced at times, and their interior structures will be examined for mold damage. Visible mold growth does not always accurately determine where mold growth has occurred on the interior structures – sometimes mold can be hidden inside, and not show on the floor or ceiling, and at other times, the interior structure will be clean and free of mold.

Exterior walls can also be damaged by mold. The damage can occur at one or more locations, the exterior, the middle, or the interior but exposed side of the wall. These walls that make up our home or business’s exterior are also what others have come to associate you with. This is part of your and your family’s persona and should be restored to its true beauty. We are experts in restoring all types of exterior walls, from the interior side through the insulating components to the exterior face. With businesses, we understand that building components are slightly different and can work with you in regards to any security issues that may need to be worked around as we restore your exterior walls, windows, and other aspects of your business.

Construction is not just an occupation to us, but an art-form that relies heavily on architectural science and technology. At Titan Restoration Construction, we understand the changes that construction has undergone over time, and we can bring that knowledge to your project, regardless of the age of your home or business. This can help protect your investment while ensuring the protective aspects inherent in any home or building are restored to their previous strength.

Many mold remediation firms only provide that service – mold remediation, leaving you with many repairs that need to be completed. While some will remove the mold damaged areas, others will not. Because of this, you need Titan Restoration Construction to make your house a home again. During the process of mold remediation, make sure to call us at Titan Restoration Construction for your West Palm Beach mold repairs. You can reach us at 561-345-3751. If we are out of the office, please leave a message and we will return your call as soon as possible.
