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.

Is Mold Remediation a Need for Homes and Businesses?

Water disasters, ceiling leaks, and storm damage can all have a role in developing mold in your property. Removing active colonies can reduce potential health effects and protect hosting materials when deterioration and degradation are not too severe. With situations like black mold, removal strategies are critical to begin as soon as possible.

Mold Remediation Approaches for Residences and Offices

Mold remediation is not a universal approach from one job site to the next. Careful assessment completed by our crew chief and project manager determines the affected materials and the necessary steps to recover the damage. From abrasive cleaning techniques like dry ice blasting to controlled demolition, our remediation approaches can help with:

• Bathroom Mold Removal
• Mold Remediation
• Black Mold
• Attic Mold
• Basement Mold Remediation
• Mold Specialists

Preventing the Spread of Mold Spores and Microbes

Constructing a wooden framework with plastic sheeting can contain the drying zone, promote a faster evaporation of moisture, and prevent active mold spores from spreading quickly to other areas of the house through pathways like the HVAC system or openings. Negative air chambers can also play a role in capturing microbes and mold spores before becoming a problem somewhere else in the house.

Meeting State Regulations for Mold Removal

We follow after a third-party mold hygienist and inspector before beginning remediation work to ensure all parties agree on the work that needs to be done and the extent of the damage.

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.
