Remediators remove mold and bacteria (sewage spills).
Abatement contractors remove mold, bacteria (including sewage spills), lead and asbestos. Some abatement contractors can clean up indoor chemical pollution problems.
If you are experiencing a leak or flooding, the sooner you stop the water and get a drying company – remediators or abatement contractors can dry out your building – the less chance you have for mold growth.
Most remediators and abatement contractors do not perform reconstruction, however, some are also licensed general contractors. If you are interested in this service, you should ask your chosen professional.
Always get three quotes for anticipated work. Always confirm valid license, insurance and certifications.
