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 Do You Know Black Mold Exists? 

Physical signs of mold development might not always be as apparent as homeowners might think. In many situations, it is beneficial to identify moist and damp portions of the property capable of facilitating organisms. Further inspections by our mold specialists can signal where hidden caches of water might exist that are also capable of supporting black mold spores. 

Can Surface Cleaning Strategies Remove Black Mold? 

Cleaning the surface of exposed materials can often be enough to eliminate superficial black mold. Black mold can be overwhelming and stressful when physical signs exist, and mold remediation seeks to determine how specific cleaning and sanding practices can eliminate mold on the organic matter where these early symptoms surface. We have several antimicrobial cleaning detergents and solvents to remove light colonization where more direct paths like controlled demolition and media blasting are not required.

How Can Mold Damage Remediation Help? 

Mold damage remediation involves multiple steps in your home, making mold removal difficult. These vary based on the hosting materials supporting colonization and the severity of exposure for mold types. These approaches aid with:

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

Does Attic Mold Removal Mean Repairs? 

Roof vulnerabilities can leave your attic space susceptible to moisture damages that can facilitate mold growth. Removing these damaged elements and repairing them can prevent further water exposure and recurrences of mold growth after remediation.

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.
