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.

Dealing with mold in your home might not seem as urgent as putting out a fire or dealing with water damage, but it's just as important. Mold is an invasive organism that can quickly spread throughout your home, causing all sorts of issues for you and your loved ones. Fortunately, our team at SERVPRO® is here to help.

Containment Strategies for Mold

Taking action early on can prevent mold spread. One of the most effective ways to do this is to first focus on containing the active spores. These tiny microbes can easily find their way into your home through openings like vents and returns of the HVAC system. That's why we use a combination of plastic sheeting and sealants to cover doorways and HVAC entrances to create a contained workspace.

Eliminating Mold Growth

As experienced remediation professionals, we have strategies to combat even the most stubborn mold colonization. From tried-and-true methods to cutting-edge techniques, we will work quickly to eliminate mold and mildew growth with:

  • Surface cleaning with products
  • Hand sanding and mechanical action
  • Dry ice or media blasting
  • Demolition

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.
