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.

Who Needs Mold Inspections for Damaged Homes? 

In situations where mold is suspected, or even confirmed, professional remediators can inspect the property for active microbial colonization and the damage it causes. Physical signs of spreading organisms and the deterioration of hosting materials are focal points in this property assessment. Mold inspections can often follow behind the work of industrial hygienists testing the environment.  

Can Surface Cleaning Address Black Mold? 

Surface cleaning often involves multiple antimicrobial products and agents in our recovery inventory. Chlorine-based solvents often used in the disinfection process can often eliminate growth on the surface of hosting materials. When surface cleaning with abrasive tactics like scrubbing is not sufficient, more direct remediation strategies might be necessary, such as:

  • Sanding
  • Media blasting
  • Controlled demolition

How Can Mold Remediation Help? 

Remediation targets active colonization through multiple methods. Because mold organisms can be so destructive to hosting materials and contents within the residence, getting these remediation strategies started as soon as possible is critical. We have experienced Applied Microbial Remediation Technicians (AMRT) to help with: 

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

Does Attic Mold Removal Come with Repairs? 

Removing mold damage is rarely the extent of what a home needs to return to preloss condition. Our general contracting license often affords actions like roof repairs and build back necessary to ensure leaking and moisture vulnerabilities get resolved. Remediation is as much about stopping future threats as it is removing active colonization.

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.
