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.

An often-underappreciated threat to area homes and businesses, especially in the humid Florida heat, is mold. Microbial spores exist in almost every environment, but they only become threatening when moist conditions exist that can facilitate colony and organism growth. As a leading remediation team, our SERVPRO roster can help with:

  • Mold remediation
  • Mold specialists
  • Attic mold
  • Black mold
  • Mold inspections
  • Bathroom mold removal

Containment and Content Awareness

Without direct intervention, mold spores will spread fast through a moist environment and find multiple supporting materials and contents to colonize. Containment of the damage situation begins with physical barriers and HEPA filtration, but this process can be aided by reducing the volume of contents in the work areas. 

Black Mold Removal Tactics for Homes and Businesses 

Choosing the right remediation method begins with a thorough evaluation of the damaged property and selecting the best approach for eliminating the colony without compromising the hosting materials. We have several remediation options in this regard, beginning with surface treatment choices with biocides for light spotting and going up to controlled demolition for material removal when needed. Often, a combination of mold removal tactics is necessary. 

Are Damage Repairs Needed After Mold Removal? 

Because of how debilitating active colonization can become, many of the hosting materials become irreparably damaged by the organism. Repairs and reconstruction are often a part of the remediation process to return mold-damaged properties to their original condition. Our SERVPRO team can help with a general contractor license.

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.
