Black Diamond installs full and limited sump pump systems in crawlspaces, when needed, in order to eliminate and prevent standing water. We can also install moisture control measures around the exterior, if warranted, and recommend whether or not other steps such as grading or other exterior drainage work may be needed.

Dehumidifiers

If you are having an issue with high humidity or musty smells in your home or business, we can install the perfect system for you. Black Diamond installs both stand-alone dehumidifiers and whole home systems that will work in conjunction with your current HVAC system.

Indoor dust and other contaminants are circulated through the HVAC system several times per day. These contaminants can negatively affect your family’s health.

TREATMENT OPTIONS

Chemical Treatment

Our highly trained bed bug inspectors will conduct a thorough evaluation of your home to determine the presence and/or extent of bed bug infestation and an appropriate course of action. Unlike most companies, our technicians are singularly dedicated to the art and science of bed bug elimination so you can be confident that you are in some of the best hands in the industry.

Heat Treatment

Internationally certified and are capable of sniffing out the slightest of bed bug infestations. If you are uncertain if you have bed bugs in your home, a K9 bed bug evaluation may be the best option for you.

Mattress Encasements

Mattress covers will not prevent bed bugs, but they will help in the process of ridding your home of these pests. The cover works by trapping the bugs inside so that they cannot bite you any longer, and without a blood meal, they will eventually die. Encasements also prevent more bed bugs from accessing your mattress, giving them less places to hide.

Restoration Services Frequently Asked Questions

Q:
Why is a pest control company offering restoration/mold remediation?
A:

Pest control companies were actually the first mold remediation companies in the United States, way back before it was a stand-alone industry. Black Diamond has kept on the cutting edge of this industry, utilizing state of the art equipment and employing the most modern containment and cleaning methods. We’re here to ensure your mold problem is effectively contained and resolved in accordance with industry standard guidelines, and our mold remediation team is made up of a select group of estimators, management, and technicians that are solely dedicated to this specialty within our company.

Q:
Is Black Diamond licensed / certified to perform mold remediation?
A:

Black Diamond is certified by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification ( IICRC ) as a certified firm for mold remediation, water damage restoration, and structural drying. The IICRC is one of the most widely recognized international certification organizations in the industry. We have certified personnel, with years of experience in mold remediation, who are able to assist you in getting your home or business back to normal. Certified technicians are required to meet continuing education requirements to maintain their certifications; and certified firms are required to provide ongoing training for personnel. Using a certified firm ensures you that you are receiving quality workmanship conforming with the most up to date industry accepted standard guidelines.

Q:
I am seeing mold. Should I have it tested to see if it's dangerous?
A:

Testing is likely unnecessary in most situations as the health effect in humans most commonly associated with mold is allergies. This is according to the EPA publication, A Brief Guide to Mold, Moisture, and Your Home, as well as published recommendations from the American Industrial Hygiene Association ( AIHA.org ) and the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences. The better, and more practical course of action, is to have a thorough visual inspection of the structure for visible suspected mold/fungi growth and moisture issues.

Q:
Can't I just kill the mold myself?
A:

Many so-called quick mold removal methods, such as fogging, ozone shock treatment, etc. are not effective because they do not take steps to remove the mold. According to industry accepted guidelines the mold should be removed, not simply killed. Black Diamond’s remediation process is based on the guidelines found in the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification publication S520 Standard and Reference Guide for Professional Mold Remediation, so you can rest assured it will always include measures to effectively remove the mold from the structure.

While Sodium Hypochlorite (the active ingredient in household bleach) has been shown to be an effective broad spectrum anti-microbial, it has virtually no cleaning properties. Therefore, it may kill the mold (although it is unlikely to completely eradicate it), but the mold is still there. Killing the mold this way may cause it to release much larger amounts of microbial volatile organic compounds (mVOCs) in a shorter time (due to cell damage and the dying process) than it would have released had it been left alone. Dead mold will also become desiccated (dried out) making it become more easily airborne and therefore more likely to be inhaled by occupants. So, killing the mold and leaving it in place is not an acceptable remediation practice.

Q:
Can I check to see how bad the mold is myself?
A:

Industry guidelines recommend that if you suspect the mold is behind a wall or in multiple layers of construction materials, it is not advised that you remove these materials for investigation without proper containment in place. Removal and inspection in such a case would be best handled by a certified mold inspector or remediation professional.

Removal of affected materials without containment in place may inadvertently disperse microscopic contaminants across a wide area of the structure. This could increase the cost of remediation exponentially.

LAWNCARE SERVICES

Grub Control

Grub worms are the larva of the Japanese beetle, and both are pests to your lawn and landscaping. Grub worms feed on the root system of your lawn which causes severe stress and possible irreversible damage.

Lime Application

Lime is applied to your lawn to help improve the condition of your soil. Most soils around this area tend to be acidic, and this treatment will help reduce the acids in your soil and make the PH more alkaline, ultimately allowing more nutrient uptake in your lawn. Magnesium and calcium, two necessary micro nutrients for your lawn, are also included in this application.

Power Seeding

Also called slit seeding, this is best for bare or very thin areas in lawn. This process involves forcing seed just below the surface of the soil with precise equipment to ensure best seed to soil contact.

Tree & Shrub Spray

Insects frequently feed on trees and shrubs. They can cause unsightly damage and sometimes even kill the plant. Frequent ornamental pests include but are not limited to: aphids, Japanese beetle, bagworms, spider mites, scale, etc. We use specific chemicals labeled for ornamental plants. This service is available as a preventative or curative application(s).

Aeration & Overseed

Aeration is the process of removing "cores" from the lawn, allowing for more air, water, and nutrients to penetrate the root zone. This encourages healthier growth for any lawn. We then over seed the lawn. Aeration and over seeding is suggested for lawns that are relatively healthy. If there are large thin and bare areas power seeding would be suggested for those areas.

Grass Killouts

We will send an experienced technician to evaluate the lawn and determine if a kill out is necessary. If so, we will kill areas desired and quote cost to power seed those areas.
