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.

The air in homes and businesses can carry mold spores along with dust and other contaminants. Our AMRT-certified experts use air scrubbers with HEPA filters to keep the air clean during the remediation process. Our technicians can efficiently remediate your property of all types of mold. When removing building materials must occur, our Construction crew is already on-site and prepared to complete the restoration. From start to finish, we have the skills and equipment to remove mold damage, mitigate the area, and restore everything, leaving no trace of microbial infestation.

We understand that microorganisms require specific elements and conditions in their environment before they can experience explosive growth. They never appear from nothingness, but only after certain conditions accrue in the area. Our process of remediation includes detecting such imbalances in the property and resolving them, so the indoor environment no longer supports excessive microbial growth. This involves removing existing moisture with desiccant machines and making repairs and minor maintenance, so future amounts of water vapor remain within normal levels.

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.
