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.

Professional Identification of Mold Growth in Homes 

With the region's subtropical climate, humid conditions are not easy to avoid for most homes and businesses. When there is not enough air circulation and proper ventilation, the high moisture content in the air can develop into physical mold colonies on organic matter present in your home or business. To identifying active colonization often requires sophisticated techniques and testing to verify. With certified Applied Microbial Remediation Technicians (AMRT) on our team, we have the experience to help you with nearly every phase of mold damage recovery. 

Removing Moisture and Humidity from Workspaces 

The best way to begin a successful mold remediation is to start with controlling the conditions in the damaged area, which include airflow, temperature, and humidity. By controlling these elements remediators are able to remove the food source and eliminate the spreading of active mold spores. To reducing moisture content we often use a combination of dehumidification equipment, including desiccants and low-grain refrigerant models. 

Effective Remediation Practices 

Removing active mold colonies is the primary focus of remediation. Depending on the affected materials and the severity of the exposure, multiple tactics can be used to remove colonies. For small surface level colonies, cleaning and antimicrobial products can be used. For more severe degradation more direct strategies such as controlled demolition may be used. With our in-house contractors ready to help in the early stages, demolition can happen quickly before the damage worsen.

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.
