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.

How Can Mold Remediation Help? 

Mold damage remediation and mitigation involve multiple strategies and techniques in a mold damaged property. Removing active colonies and spreading organisms changes based on the scenarios like moist attic spaces or damp basements. Choosing the right removal technique comes from efficient mold inspections and evaluations before helping with:

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

Does Every Home Need Professional Mold Inspections? 

Identifying the damage that mold organisms have caused the property might not always be a suitable task for unqualified contractors. Our mold damage specialists have extensive training to become Applied Microbial Remediation Technicians (AMRT) through the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC), providing knowledgeable evaluations of potential threats your home faces from mold exposure.

Can Surface Cleaning Remove Black Mold? 

Many of the remediation strategies that we implement to remove active colonization focus most on the outermost exposed layers of organic matter. Drywall and other building materials susceptible to mold growth can often benefit from applying antimicrobial solvents and detergents. Black mold can also get eliminated in this way if the organism has not seated deeply enough to require more invasive strategies. 

Does Attic Mold Removal Come with Repairs? 

When moisture exists to facilitate mold growth in the attic of your home, this is often an indication of roof vulnerabilities where water penetrates the exterior. Mold damage remediation removes the colonies, but our general contractor license #13VH06046200 can help with repairs and reconstruction necessary.

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.
