How are DARI’s mold removal products applied?

The proprietary Foster® products we use can be applied several ways. Most common method when treating an interior space is an airless sprayer. We also integrate the use of foggers to reach hidden and expansive interior space. Finally, where appropriate, we hand apply the products to assure a perfect and safe application. In addition, we combine a carpet extraction machine for use on carpeted surfaces.


Do my family and I have to leave the premises while DARI is remediating the mold?

Yes, it is recommended that only the mold remediation experts be in the building when remediating. With the exception of spraying during the framing process of a new building, we contain the area we are spraying and our professional applicators wear personal protective equipment. Re-occupancy to the treated areas is often available in as little as 2 hours (depending on drying time or relative humidity for that day). We can also contain any mold in a hospital, business, or commercial environment so that day-to-day business is uninterrupted. DARI has over 30 years of experience successfully remediating and removing mold from buildings in the Piedmont Triad area.


Are the mold removal products/chemical that DARI uses safe?

Yes, all chemicals and product are 100% safe!  Our products consist of peroxide and water, and are extremely safe. They are absolutely non-toxic, friendly to the environment, and non-flammable. In a way, the compound naturally fights mold.  The key is to remove the existing mold, and then to reject new mold spores of the organic nutrients that they need to survive. The proprietary Foster® products have been approved for use in hospitals, schools and universities, commercial, public, and government buildings, homes, hotels, and many other types of structures.  For over 60 years, the Foster® brand of products have been leading the way with its mastic, coating, sealant and adhesive products for the industrial, commercial and residential construction markets. Foster introduced the first EPA-registered antimicrobial coating, and still the only, for use in HVAC systems in 1992 and has continued to manufacture and sell water-based coatings, disinfectants and accessory products for mold remediation and prevention to the indoor air quality market. Our reputation has been built on the best technical expertise driving the best technology for superior performing products. Read more here.


Does the DARI’s Mold Remediation team make a mess?

No, the DARI team makes every effort to keep the work areas being treated clean during the process. We will leave your space equal to or better than the start of the project, like it never happened. There are no waste products from our method and no damage to your property or disruption to your life as is found in the ‘tear-out’ remediation option.  Don’t take our word for it, see what our customers are saying by clicking here.


Could I do the application and remove the mold myself?   

No, it is strongly recommended that for health reasons, only certified professionals, like us, are authorized and are necessary to assure an effective result. Using our scientifically proven process   allows us to offer up to a five-year limited warranty against mold when we treat a building.


What is DARI’s warranty policy for mold remediation?

For new construction, where we are able to treat the entire building, we offer the best warranty in the industry: A five-year limited warranty against significant mold growth. And for existing homes and buildings, we offer an unmatched two-year warranty against mold growth; to our knowledge, no competitor can compete with this level of confidence.


What is it that the DARI mold remediation team does exactly?

First step:  DARI uses a scientifically proven method to clean the area to get rid of any existing mold. Step two: DARI cuts off the nutrient source needed for mold growth. The team does this by placing a transparent sealant over the surfaces treated. For the period of our warranty, we guarantee that any mold spores which enter your building will land on the DARI treated surfaces and be denied their nutrient source. DARI’s process works!  Since 1985, DARI’s team has achieved great results.  But again, don’t just take our word for it, see what our customers are saying .


I have heard that all buildings contain mold? Is that true?

Every building, either residential or commercial does have mold spores present. You can blame Mother Nature. Mold can enter a building in several ways: each time a door or window is opened, and even on shoes, and clothing. We have also heard of mold entering the house via packaged delivery boxes.  DARI can protect the interior environment of a building and greatly reduce if not eliminate the negative effects of mold! With our inexpensive, innovative process, there is no reason to risk any financial burden or damage to you or your loved ones’ health from mold. For more information on mold please visit .


How many different types of mold are there?

The latest scientific reports suggest that there are hundreds of thousands of types of mold.  In fact, there are good strains of mold as well as negative strains. One place you could find this in the house would be inside a beer or in certain cheeses. Blue cheese is actually a type of mold.  However, not all molds have negative effects of your health and even some bad molds are administered to become beneficial to humans. The common doctor prescribed drug, Penicillin, is a good example. Penicillin is derived from Penicillium, which in its original states is extremely harmful to humans and animals. Read more information on type of mold and risks associated with mold


I think I have mold in my house. What should I do?

Call us so we can help you determine the true situation and the most suitable and proper course of action. A lot of times, what home-owners think mold is actually not mold related, and DARI’s team will let tell you for sure. If there is a mold-related issue, we will advise you with the details and provide you with our estimate for remediation – all of which is completely free of charge. We pride ourselves on providing FREE ESTIMATES to all our customers.  Be careful to stop any current water leak and do not do anything that may spread or worsen the existing situation.


What about repairs? Does your team do repairs?

Yes, DARI offers turnkey inspections and restoration services at no charge and your technician will provide you with a free estimate including a complete scope of works.  Sometime, certain repairs can require a specialist like a roofer, HVAC contractor or a plumber to correct the water source issues, and DARI’s team already has these trusted subcontractors on staff.


I am building a new home. When should I spray for mold prevention?

The method that provides the greatest protection, is to have DARI provide our service at the completion of the framing and again at the installation of the drywall. This is our standard practice and is included for our standard fee. With DARI’s warranty, your new home or building will be mold-free for at least five years.


How much is this going to cost me?

This is the best part.  DARI’s mold remediation process is so efficient it is an extremely affordable process which delivers maximum results. Most properties can be fully remediated at a fraction of what our competitors charge. DARI charges by the square foot for its treatment process and prides itself on the value it provides its clients.** NOTE: The price may vary due to the complexity of the project, height of walls, number of visits and a few other variables typically when dealing with commercial properties.


Why choose DARI?

DARI has a number of unique advantages over virtually every other remediation company in the industry. Not only have we been around longer, since 1985, we include cutting edge products and methods that consistently allow DARI to:

Provide an effective, long-term solution rather than the “band-aide approach” of our competitors that only encapsulate the problem for it just to return at a later date.

—-DARI & D.H. Griffin Wrecking Team up To Demolish Rental Car Row to make way for the RAMP A expansion at Charlotte Douglas International Airport.


DARI & D.H. Griffin Wrecking have teamed up to perform the asbestos abatement, and removal of 27 structures as part of the Charlotte Douglass International Airport RAMP A Expansion Project.

The 27 structures consist of primarily rental car companies; such as, Budget, Hertz, and Enterprise. DARI will complete the pre-demo abatement by next week, and the Wrecking division will be on-site over the next month tearing down the old structures.  A majority of the demolished materials will be recycled.

The DARI portion of the project is being  managed by Jeff Feeley and overseen by James McGee of DARI’s Charlotte division.







Read more about the Charlotte Airport Expansion plan here:

            Charlotte based construction company, Choate, contracted DARI- Demolition & Asbestos Removal Inc. to perform an interior demolition on a 160,000 square foot building that entailed the removal of approximately 200,000 acoustical ceiling tile and grid, lighting, wall board/drywall systems, doors and frames, carpeted and ceramic flooring, millwork, mechanical, electrical, data networking and associated systems. DARI’s objective was to finish the interior strip-out on the 160,000 square foot building, and remove 300,000 square feet of dry wall, electrical wiring, HVAC units, and other debris…. all within 1 week. DARI was the company’s first choice due to the complex nature of the project and timeframe that the client needed the job completed in. Thanks to the experience of Charlotte Division Manager Jeff Feeley and Project Manager James McGee, with the help of Supervisors- Jose Reyes and Jose Hernadnez- the punch list on this Ballantyne project is almost 100% complete, and right on schedule!

Renovations at Duke’s Wallace Wade Stadium continue as D.H. Griffin Wrecking handles the demolition of the Finch-Yeager building started Monday, Feb. 9, 2015. The former press box and Sports Medicine facility will be replaced by a five-story, 90,000-square-foot tower which will open for the 2016 football season. (The News & Observer)


In April of 2014, the DARI- Disaster Restoration Services division of DH Griffin Companies’  24 Hour Emergency Response crews responded to a call from a local daycare center, Child Care Network, located at 1405 Friendly Avenue, when a garbage truck crashed into their facility. The truck continued through the parking lot and crashed into the side of the building, and through the exterior brick wall. DARI’s Emergency Response crews were able to successfully secure the scene, and were also able to get the daycare back open for business by the next day. As a result of the success of this job, the client awarded the division a number of other Non- Emergency reconstruction jobs at their other facilities around North Carolina.

As many of you know, the Disaster Restoration division is fairly new to the DH Griffin Companies. They are fully certified Restoration Contractor specializing in; storm damage, water damage, fire & smoke restoration, mold remediation, and 24-Hour Emergency Response.

BOOM! Success! On June 1, 2014 DHGW was able to successfully implode the eleven-story Appalachian State University dorm, Winkler Hall, to rubble! DARI was contracted by the University to provide asbestos removal of entire 42,000 square feet of structure to prepare it for implosive demolition. DARI- Demolition & Asbestos Removal Inc., removed approximately 34,125 square feet of floor tile and mastic, 41,200 square feet ceiling surfacing, 52,875 square feet of joint compound/sheetrock and several hundred feet of asbestos containing thermal system insulation from piping throughout the structure. Most of the strip-out work on this project was done by DARI. DARI performed the majority of the strip-out work prior to abatement including desks, doors, drop ceilings, ect. DARI also removed bulk and ballasts, and universal wastes throughout the building during the strip-out process as well. 104 tons of ACM was removed, along with 13 tons of scrap metal, and 12 tons of C&D debris. Congratulations to Hickory Division Manager, Foyle Perkins, Project Manager, Nick Perkins, and Asbestos Supervisor, Mateo Adame for a job well done! Now the former residence hall site provides temporary green space for students after 96% of the debris has been recycled!

Football season is over, but the work to improve Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, North Carolina is just beginning. Last month, DARI- Demolition & Asbestos Removal Inc. was contracted to perform various updates to the venue. See below, pictures of the carpet removal, window removal, mold remediation, and weather proofing for the stadium’s luxury suites. In the beginning, the project scope was estimated to take about (4) weeks.  However, due to the experience and expertise of DARI’s Charlotte division manager, Jeff Feely and Project Manager, James McGee, the complex project was finished a full (2) weeks ahead of schedule.  And the luxury suites at the Carolina Panthers stadium are looking better than ever!  As proud Carolina Panthers fans, DARI is always happy to help the longtime client.  Go Panthers!
