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.

Mold is a type of fungus that grows and thrives in moist and damp environments. It is often found in areas of the home that are exposed to high levels of moisture, such as basements, bathrooms, and kitchens.

Mold can cause a range of health problems, including respiratory issues, allergies, and skin irritation. It can also cause damage to your home's structure and decrease its overall value.

To prevent mold from growing in your home, it is important to keep your environment dry and well-ventilated. This can be achieved by:

  1. Controlling humidity levels: Mold thrives in environments with high humidity levels, so it's important to keep the humidity levels in your home below 60 percent. This can be achieved through the use of dehumidifiers and air conditioning units.

  2. Proper ventilation: Proper ventilation is important in preventing mold growth. Make sure your home's ventilation system is working properly and open windows and doors to allow for air flow.

  3. Repair leaks: Water leaks should be repaired as soon as they are noticed, as they create a moist environment that is ideal for mold growth.

  4. Clean up spills and standing water: Any spills or standing water should be cleaned up promptly to prevent mold growth.

  5. Regular cleaning: Regular cleaning of your home's surfaces can prevent the growth of mold. Use mold-killing products such as bleach to clean surfaces that are susceptible to mold growth.

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.
