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.

If you think mold is growing in your home or business, acting quickly on this potential threat is vital. Third-party mold inspectors can work with you to confirm the presence of microbial growth and create a detailed guideline for our remediation.

The Threat of Mold to Your Home

Understanding the role mold might play in damaging your home is crucial. Improperly managed water damage and flood concerns in your house can result in ideal conditions for mold development. The impact of active colonies on structural integrity and air quality creates an urgency to resolve the threats as soon as possible. We can help with:

  • Basement mold remediation
  • Attic mold
  • Bathroom mold removal
  • Mold damage repairs
  • Mold Remediation

The Mold Remediation Process

There are multiple types of remediation and mold removal possible. Choosing among the options varies based on our assessment of a materials salvage ability and efficient solutions to get you back in your home. Surface cleaning is the ideal approach, but this is not always feasible to entirely remove active colonies. Often more aggressive cleaning with abrasive media could be necessary.

When Are Mold Damage Repairs Necessary?

There are many instances where the remediation process requires us to complete subsequent repairs and build back services in the house. Controlled demolition is a means of removing mold growth. Our general contractor license also lets us seek out moisture damage allowing mold to grow, and repair these concerns.

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.
