Mold Remediation and Restoration

Local and state laws may require a specific inspection and documentation protocol based on the size of the affected area. We can advise you on this process, providing guidance based on your unique situation.

While you might not treat mold with the urgency of a fire or water disaster in your home, you probably should. Mold organisms are destructive and aggressive, moving rapidly through a structure and causing problems for your family. Our SERVPRO team is experienced and trained to help. 

Containing Mold Growth in Your Home

With the pace that mold can move and spread throughout a structure, focusing first on the containment of active spores is imperative. Using pathways like structural openings or vents and returns of the HVAC system, microbes find homes all around your home without action to stop it. We cover doorways with plastic sheeting and seal over HVAC entrances to contain the workspace effectively.

Removing Mold Damage Fast

Working quickly to eliminate mold and mildew growth in your home is necessary. You might have already been facing this battle with surface cleaners, but the recurring threat has made you lean on experienced remediation professionals like ours. We have multiple strategies to manage stubborn mold colonization, including:

  • Antimicrobial surface treatment
  • Sanding and mechanical action
  • Dry ice blasting
  • Demolition

Understanding Mold

Confusion and misunderstanding surround the topic of mold and mold remediation. Some restoration businesses even make claims to remove all mold from a building. This is a fallacy. Mold spores occur naturally almost everywhere, both indoors and outdoors. These microscopic spores float along in the air and can enter a home or business through windows and HVAC systems. Consider these facts:

  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
  • Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
  • Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.
