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.

How Threatening is Black Mold Growth?

Homeowners are often ill-prepared to manage mold colonization that can develop quickly in moist environments. Black mold growth can be an alarming sight that works quickly to deteriorate organic matter as the colonies feed. Removing active threats should begin as soon as possible, making it vital to contact our professional Applied Microbial Remediation Technicians (AMRT) at the onset of damages.

Is Mold Remediation Necessary? 

If you see mold damage in your home, then some degree of remediation, removal, and repair is necessary. The level of these processes needed often gets determined by the inspection process conducted by our mold specialists. Because mold can cause health effects, our remediation technicians must begin immediately helping with:

  • bathroom mold removal
  • mold specialists
  • black mold
  • attic mold
  • Mold remediation
  • basement mold remediation

Black Mold Removal from Your Bathroom

Despite how threatening that black mold might appear, there are hundreds of types of residential fungal and microbial organisms that could develop in a moist bathroom. Our SERVPRO professionals have leading remediation strategies, including equipment for dry ice blasting and surface sanding, eliminating the need for tear-out.  

Can SERVPRO Do Repairs After Attic Mold?

Our general contracting license allows for vital services like controlled demolition, plumbing repairs, and board-up/tarping to occur. With a roof being a vulnerable point for water penetration, repairs to this area can help reduce recurrences while our professionals remove mold and its hazardous effects on the rest of the structure.

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.
