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 Protocols

Many homes will experience mold growth and development in their lifetime. There are many low-traffic areas of a property ideal for this colonization when moisture becomes a factor. Often, this is not a situation that property owners can handle on their own. Professional remediation solutions ensure that the best possible care is shown to your residence and the materials hosting mold organisms to reduce tear-out and build-back services required. SERVPRO is experienced with:

  • Mold remediation
  • Attic mold removal
  • Structural drying
  • Deodorization 
  • Mold removal

Containing Microbial Development

Preventing the movement of active mold spores allows for fewer surfaces that require treatment and attention as mold removal tactics and strategies get underway. With a general contractor license, we can construct physical barriers to reduce the movement of these microorganisms. However, it is also possible to contain them with equipment like negative air machines and HEPA filtration products. 

Mold Remediation for Damaged Homes

Technicians must carefully consider the process to ensure the best possible approach gets deployed. We utilize various methods, beginning with surface cleaning using antimicrobial solutions and sporicidal agents. More aggressive and abrasive techniques can often be necessary, such as sanding and media blasting with dry ice or sodium bicarbonate.

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.
