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 Remediation and Restoration

Mold is one of the most worrisome of all outcomes from any type of water or moisture problem in a home. It grows behind walls and under floors, making it very hard to see. When your home has any type of water damage, there is a risk of mold growth. It happens even within just a matter of hours of water exposure. That is why it is so important to be aggressive at treating it.

What to Do About Mold

When mold is present, it is critical to remove it. This is a very specific, step by step process that only licensed professionals should follow. The goal is to ensure all the mold present is removed. Then, a sanitization process is completed to remove the damaged areas and clean away any lingering presence of mold spores.

It is impossible to see mold spores, but there are tests that can be used to determine if it is present. Getting those levels down is critical to ensuring your property is safe again.

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.
