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.

Mold is not a situation that should be taken lightly when it is discovered in your residence. The presence of this fungal or microbial threat can continually worsen until immediate steps get taken to remove it and remediate the effects. Our SERVPRO AMRT-Certified technicians work to remove the active colonies from a property and eliminate the underlying cause of this development.

What Remediation Solutions Exist?

Mold remediation can take many forms and changes based on numerous factors and environmental conditions. Surface cleaning is the preferred approach, but this is not always possible when the infestation penetrates beyond the outermost layer of hosting materials. More aggressive and abrasive tactics can be needed, even to the point of controlled demolition. Our SERVPRO team helps with:

  • Attic Mold Removal
  • Basement Mold Remediation
  • Mold Inspections
  • Mold Containment 
  • Odor Removal 

The Role of Containment in Remediation

Containment is an important aspect of successful remediation. By erecting barriers and temporary wall systems or utilizing negative air machines, we can prevent the migration of aggressive mold spores to new areas. Limiting the work zone allows for mold removal and cleanup to occur at a much faster rate. 

Clearing Musty Odors

A final consideration of the restoration and recovery process after mold damage in your residence is eliminating lingering odors generated by volatile organic compounds. Musty smells are a common output of microbial colonies, so deodorization practices become necessary in the cleanup and recovery of a mold-damaged residence.

Understanding Mold

Some restoration companies advertise “mold removal” and may even guarantee to remove all mold. This is a fallacy because removing all mold from a house or business is impossible; microscopic mold spores exist almost everywhere, both indoors and outdoors. Here are the 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.
