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 can impact moist environments quickly. When organisms seat and spread through hosting materials, SERVPRO is a trusted name to help with: 

  • Mold removal
  • Attic mold removal
  • Mold prevention
  • Deodorization 
  • Mold remediation
  • Black mold damage repairs

The Benefits of Early Containment

Preventing the spread of active mold spores is critical to successful remediation. We erect physical barriers for open areas only partly impacted by organisms and seal off structural openings with thick 6 mil plastic sheeting. Establishing a contained workspace allows drying and mold management to be faster and more effective. The barriers also prevent cross-contamination of remediators and the rest of the house as work continues.   

How Do Damaged Homes Get Remediated? 

Choosing the proper remediation method is a vital part of the recovery process for homes and businesses impacted by mold and microbial threats. Between the severity of the situation and the affected hosting materials, a range of mold removal tactics are necessary. We can begin with approaches like surface cleaning, though more aggressive measures can sometimes be needed like sponge pressure cleaning, dry ice blasting, and sanding.

Removing mold and microbial organisms from the property is only the beginning of the complete recovery your home needs in most cases.

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.
