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.

Why Are SERVPRO Mold Specialists Well-Trained? 

There is a sense of urgency that can come with widespread mold damage or fungal threats like dry rot. These colonies and mobilizing organisms require specific tactics to overcome in a residence or business. With the layers of possible damages and how these organisms can cause health effects, homeowners need highly trained personnel to begin removal and mold remediation. 

How Can Mold Remediation Differ from Mold Removal? 

You might not know what your home needs once mold colonies have been confirmed and action should begin. These steps embody our commitment to efficient remediation, differing from removal strategies to focus efforts on active colonies. Employing these tactics involve the training and continued education of our accredited remediation professionals certified through the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) to help with:

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

How Do You Remove Black Mold in the Bathroom?  

The presence of black mold can be alarming, so mold remediation and removal should begin as quickly as possible. Residential mold organisms feed on organic matter like drywall, wood trim, carpeting, and other surfaces. Mold remediation and removal often utilize surface sanding, dry ice blasting, and even using our general contracting license for controlled demolition.

Can SERVPRO Deodorize During Basement Mold Remediation?

Comfortable living means resolving all damaging aspects of mold development, including lingering odors. Our efficient deodorization tactics include fogging, hydroxyl generators, and air scrubbers.

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.
