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.

Assessing Damage Through Mold Inspection

Once homeowners suspect that mold might exist in their property, it is customary to reach out to our qualified mold specialists to conduct inspections of the structure. This process identifies multiple possible threats that could indicate active colonization and further action by our remediation team. Evaluations like this pinpoint: 

  • Damaged structural elements
  • Musty odors
  • Surface spotting
  • Damp/moist areas

Is Mold Remediation Necessary? 

Despite many homeowners encountering mold more than once in their lifetimes, this is not a development that should get ignored. Organisms spread throughout a residence and overwhelm structural elements and other organic matter. With fast and reliable responses to potential mold disasters, our remediators offer:

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

Black Mold Removal from Your Bathroom

The bathroom can be a likely location for the development of mold and microbial threats. Persistent dampness and poor ventilation are often to blame, and early signs of growth can appear on fixtures, building materials, and other surfaces. Removing black mold requires several actions depending on the severity of the colonization and the affected material. Some solutions include: 

  • Surface sanding
  • Antimicrobial wipe cleaning
  • Dry ice blasting
  • Controlled demolition

Can SERVPRO Do Repairs After Attic Mold? 

Moisture in the attic is often indicative of roof damage. Removing the microbial colonies in this scenario is not enough to prevent recurrences, utilizing our general contracting license to fully repair and rebuild roof vulnerabilities to finalize remediation.

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.
