Mold may be hazardous to your health if you don’t remediate the problem. Fortunately there are mold remediation companies like Alternative Technologies Inc. who can cleanup mold infestations indoors and outdoors. No mold removal project in Southern California is too small or too large for us to handle after 30 years in business.
Mold remediation is more than just “mold removal”
Mold growth usually occurs when there is water damage from many different sources. It can be from leaks, condensation, intrusion, or flooding. It will not go away until the underlying problems are controlled or corrected.

- Carpet flooring

Alternative Technologies Inc. provides mold remediation service. This means we get your airborne mold levels back to within normal and healthier levels.
The mold remediation process involves surface cleaning, removing and replacing moldy items, air scrubbing & filtering equipment, and also exchanging fresh air in a sealed room.
A key point is that we remediate the mold problem beyond just a surface cleaning if that is what is required. Surface cleaning often just results in a temporary fix and the mold returns again. For example, if we discover mold damage was caused by a moisture problem like high humidity or leaky pipes, we will address those issues with you as well.
We go further during the preparation and cleanup phases of mold remediation
Anybody can remove surface mold by scrubbing with water and detergents. But few non-professionals understand the scientifically developed protocols behind mold remediation. As mold remediation experts, we approach a mold removal project more knowledgeably and thoroughly. We look at your case both qualitatively and quantitatively.
In an attempt to prevent recurring mold growth, we investigate the source and extent of the damage with more scrutiny to plan for a successful result.
- We follow EPA guidelines for schools and commercial buildings  to remediate mold affected surfaces.
- We use commercial and industrial grade equipment for our mold remediation projects. Our dehumidifiers and HEPA air scrubbers output more work capacity than a big box store brand or household appliance. For example, our air scrubbers filter more air in a couple minutes than a household product could filter in an entire day.
- Our technicians are fully protected from the toxins associated with mold. We only use approved cleaning products and sealers (when required) to treat the problem, thereby avoid that “chemical smell” post remediation. All products are MSDS tested.
A serious mold issue requires a professional mold removal company to correctly handle the project from the onset. Improper or incomplete training could result in a bigger problem and expense for the owner.
Common questions about our mold remediation service
Don’t let mold become hazardous at home, work, or school
If you see or smell mold, don’t shrug it off. Mold grows very rapidly under the right conditions. It can take less than 48 hours to establish a mold colony with a food source, moisture, and a little warmth. Indoor spore counts can explode in humid or moist conditions, potentially creating a health issue.
Toxic mold may cause illness or aggravate an existing illness. This can pose a serious health risk to someone who is already immune compromised. Medical experts have also reported evidence that links indoor exposure to mold with upper respiratory tract symptoms, cough, and wheeze in otherwise healthy people. 
So ask yourself, “Do I want to protect my home and the health of myself and my family?” If you answer YES, then hire a licensed professional and environmental mold remediation company rather than a handyman or restoration company turned mold expert.
