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 Specialists Conduct Thorough Assessments

A mold inspection is one of the initial actions that our SERVPRO remediation team can offer when contending with possible microbial growth. This evaluation of the property seeks to identify active colonies' presence through a focused assessment of the building materials and contents in damp areas of the residence. We can identify: 

  • Spotting
  • Odors
  • Damaged materials
  • Wet surfaces

How Can Mold Removal Efforts Get Started?

Removing active colonization involves several practices and techniques employed at the appropriate phases. Black mold and fungal threats can overwhelm a residence or business when left to spread and thrive unabated. Removing these colonies and eradicating the organism hosted in exposed materials relies on several approaches, such as: 

  • Sanding
  • Soda blasting
  • Controlled demolition 

Our mold specialists provide solutions for:

  • Bathroom mold removal
  • Attic mold
  • Basement mold remediation
  • Mold remediation
  • Black mold
  • Mold specialists

Is Bathroom Mold Removal Needed?

Because of the high moisture level in bathroom areas, this can be a traditional location to find mold growth. Removing microbial threats underneath the tile and pushing through painted drywall services often involves controlled demolition and subsequent repairs. 

How Can Moisture Get Removed During Basement Mold Remediation?

Evaporative drying techniques are a vital element of remediation. Much like repairing structural vulnerabilities to prevent further water penetration, mold removal and restoration practices seek to provide a long-term solution to the microbial threats your property has faced. Often air movers, dehumidifiers, and heaters provide results that remove present moisture.

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.
