Mold Doctors USA Update: Fire Damage

Mold Doctors USA has been busy working on quite a few fire damaged properties in Knoxville, Lenoir City, Kingston, and Maryville the last few months.

🔥Post fire damage chimney reconstruction. After hot coals were lodged in the chimney flu cap, the existing siding began to ignite.

When using wood burning fireplaces, we highly recommend regularly scheduled chimney maintenance.

Very important for every homeowner to remember!


What makes us different from other restoration companies?

Mold Doctors USA has been doing restoration work for 15 years right in East Tennessee! We love what we do. We are locally owned and operated and fully licensed and insured. Plus, we hold the highest certifications in the industry. Since Tennessee doesn’t regulate our industry there are many companies that claim they offer restoration services that we offer but do not have any professional training or certifications. Seriously, many companies are operating right here in Knoxville, Lenoir City, Tellico Village, Oak Ridge, Clinton, LaFollette, Sevierville – and they have not taken tests from a third party. That is ridiculous and scary!

What sets us apart besides that? We do it all! We handle the cleanup of whatever disaster you have experienced and we can rebuild your house, business, make it look better than what it did prior to the damage. If your house floods, if your kitchen catches on fire, if your hotel floods 50 rooms, if sewage busts in your restaurant, if mold or water intrusion is in your crawlspace, if asbestos is in your commercial property – Mold Doctors USA has got you covered.

We are available 24/7 for any emergency service and offer free appointments for regular scheduled services. We work with all insurance companies and make it so much easier to navigate the insurance claim. With our industry experience and expertise we can take care of you!


East Tennessee’s Commercial Mold Removal Specialists

East Tennessee has had a very wet winter this year, and with lots of rain comes the risk of mold. Mold can thrive in wet conditions, creating a nasty mess that can spread through your business. Luckily, the staff at Mold Doctors USA is experienced in commercial mold removal and remediation and can help get your business back on track in no time.

I think my business has mold. What are the first steps I should take?

Initially, Mold Doctors USA will perform mold assessments to test for mold in your business. The moisture and humidity levels will be measured and then adjusted to a level that will reduce mold growth. If mold is found in the business, we will work to contain the mold and keep it from spreading to other parts of the building. Depending on the range and severity of the mold that is found in the business, we will use filtration equipment and our cleaning product MoldRX to kill any remaining mold spores in the business and prevent any new mold from growing.

Will my employees and customers be affected by commercial mold removal?

Mold Doctors USA will work to keep anyone from being exposed to mold or any other potential hazards during the removal process. Safety and loss of productivity are our top concerns and we will work to make sure that your business can maintain a normal work flow during the remediation process.

There’s No Damage Like Water Damage

Water Damage that’s not handled properly leads to mold growth and compromises the structure. Our client hired another restoration company three years ago to dry out the property. Unfortunately, they did not go underneath the house to remove the wet contents. Thus, mold is everywhere in this house!

We were hired to dry out their new water damage and in the process discovered mold under all flooring and in majority of all walls! Mold Doctors USA can handle your emergency service 24/7.

Are you throwing your money away to Pest Control companies for fungus treatments?

Fungus Treatments Do Not Kill Mold

There is an EPIDEMIC hitting the East Tennessee market! Homeowners are paying for fungus treatments and expecting the fungus, aka, mold – to be gone. Guess what – fungus treatments do NOT kill mold and it will absolutely come back!

Look For Mold Removal Certifications

Think of it this way. If you are a realtor, you pay to stay accredited and attend CE classes to maintain your real estate license. If you are a nurse, you went to nursing school.  Same for the mold remediation industry. We attended classes, took courses, had to pass them, and stay current for our industry.  We have certifications! Pest companies do not have any certifications to remove mold. They also are not protecting your most valuable asset, your home or business!

Mold Can Cross-Contaminate

Mold is also known as fungus, microbial growth, dust on floor joists, growth in the crawlspace or basement, etc. If mold remediation is not handled properly, it can cross-contaminate your house or business and make a small problem a much larger issue.

Could Mold Exposure be Affecting Your Health?

You may be one of the many people unknowingly living with or working around toxic mold.

Toxic Mold Signs and Symptoms

Most people are unaware that their home or workplace could be the breeding ground to their symptoms. In fact, it’s estimated that indoor pollutants, including toxic mold, are at a concentration of 2 to 5 times higher than that of the pollutants found outdoors and contributes to more than 50% of patients’ illnesses!

By far, the most common health issue caused by mold is an allergy. Mold-related allergic reactions include:

  • Coughing
  • Wheezing
  • Red, itchy, and watery eyes
  • Runny nose
  • Rash

If you’re someone who already has chronic or seasonal allergies, or suffers from a respiratory condition such as asthma or COPD, your allergic reaction to mold may be much more significant. These worsened allergic symptoms can cause:

  • Persistent coughing
  • Frequent chest cold
  • Headaches
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Sinus inflammation
  • Fatigue and lethargy

In cases of long-term toxic mold exposure, this may lead to more serious symptoms such as:

  • Poor memory and confusion
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Tingling and numbness in your hands and feet
  • Appetite swings and weight gain
  • Increased thirst
  • Hair loss
  • Metallic taste in your mouth
  • Abdominal pain, bloating, and diarrhea
  • Muscle cramps
  • Joint pain
  • Anxiety
  • Lightheadedness
  • Difficulty concentrating
