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.

An Overview Of Mold

Mold is virtually everywhere but without the right environment, it won't spread or cause issues. Mold is extremely common, especially in bathrooms, underneath sinks or around windows. This is due to the abundance of moisture in addition to the porous material. In oder to grow, mold needs 3 things;

  • Food (porous material)
  • Water
  • Humidity

In the perfect environment mold can grow and spread rapidly and can spread quicker and easier if cleaned improperly. Whether it's visible or not, the mold you can't see is just as dangerous. So, if you have experienced mold or a flood, you need us. We have the tools, equipment, technicians and experience you need!

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.
