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.

One of the alarming aspects of mold and microbial development is that colonies can exist and spread without a homeowner noticing. There are areas of your house that you do not consistently inspect and visit, such as your crawlspace or an unfinished attic. Once physical signs of mold growth reach more heavily trafficked areas of your property, the colonies have become a substantial threat that requires multiple types of remediation and removal strategies to resolve.

Remediation Strategies for Colony Removal 

Eliminating mold and microbial threats from a damaged property begins with a thorough inspection of the grounds to determine the organisms' most likely locations. Removing moisture and humidity from the environment around these work zones can start to starve out the colony while more direct remediation approaches get underway to eliminate these threats altogether. Mold removal that our SERVPRO team completes only fixates on active threats and not naturally occurring spores in the environment and can be finished with multiple practices such as:

- Surface power sanding

- Abrasive media blasting 

- Surface cleaning with antimicrobial products

- Controlled demolition

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.
