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.

What Certified Mold Specialists Conduct Inspections? 

The inspection of your property to determine mold damages are vital to formulating a tailored remediation strategy to resolve active colonization. As challenging as mold growth and microbial threats can be, we have skilled Applied Microbial Remediation Technicians (AMRT) accredited through the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) to assess the damage and suggest needed action.  

How Can Mold Remediation Differ from Mold Removal? 

Many companies misuse mold removal as a universal practice that eliminates the colonies and respective mold spores throughout the indoor environment. Mold removal is neither feasible nor cost-efficient in this regard, especially when it only becomes threatening when growing in a moist environment. Our remediators offer a variety of helpful approaches designed to minimize displacement of residents and maximize the efficiency of:

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

Black Mold Bathroom Mold Removal 

Black mold can form within 48 hours under moist conditions often found in the bathroom. When painted surfaces like drywall begin to spot, controlled demolition is often the only approach to remediate the damage. 

Can SERVPRO Remove Odors During Basement Mold Remediation?

Musty odors can be a common staple of active colonization, continuing to linger in the property after these mold organisms have been removed. These musty smells require several products and instruments in our recovery inventory. Thermal foggers and air scrubbers often play the largest roles in this deodorization.

Understanding Mold

Microscopic mold spores exist almost everywhere, outdoors and indoors, making it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. Some restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all mold, which is a fallacy. Consider the following mold 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.
