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 Does Mold Remediation Help Damaged Homes? 

Remediation is a general term for many of the actions taken during mold damage restoration and recovery of your home. Depending on the severity of the exposure to organic matter and building materials, specific techniques are more efficient and effective than others. We can provide multiple types of mold damage remediating actions, ranging from soda blasting and sanding to abrasive cleaning with antimicrobial agents. We can offer solutions for:  

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

Is Black Mold Hazardous? 

Much like other residential mold types, black mold must get addressed as soon as possible upon discovery. Often this process begins with a thorough mold inspection by our competent professionals. We can identify how severe the situation has become and the earliest remediation approaches to implement to start restoring your property to its original condition. 

Can You Contain Spores During Bathroom Mold Removal? 

Containment is often a valuable effort during mold remediation work. Preventing the spread of active spores to new areas can reduce how rapidly organisms develop. We can establish containment with many practical tools in our inventory, including air scrubbers and negative pressure machines. 

Is Basement Mold Remediation Common? 

The basements of area homes can often be challenging to keep dry from groundwater threats and other moist conditions. In damp circumstances, spores can attack cellulose in wood supports and begin developing mold and fungal colonies that require removal.

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.
