Mold Assessment & Mold Remediation
Mold Assessment and Mold Remediation may be required when a home or business has suffered from Water Leaks or Issues with Moisture, Humidity, Ventilation, or Temperature. Microscopic mold spores exist naturally just about everywhere—indoors and outdoors—so removing all mold from a home or business may be impractical.
In addition to causing significant property damage, mold can produce allergens and irritants that can cause health effects. Experienced and trained certified technicians use specialized equipment to re-mediate the mold in your home or business.
Always Consider the following mold facts:
- Mold is present almost everywhere, both indoors and outdoors.
- Mold spores are microscopic and drift along in the air, and they may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or can be brought indoors on your clothing or a pet.
- Mold spores thrive on moisture and can quickly grow into a colony when exposed to water.
- Prior to starting mold remediation, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise there is potential for the mold to return.
- You can smell mold. Mold often produces a strong, musty odor, and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
- Higher than normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Indoor humidity should be kept below 45 percent.

Understanding the Mold Remediation Process:
All mold damage circumstances are different and requires a unique solution, but the general mold remediation process remains the same.
Inspection and Mold Damage Assessment
- Property and/or area is evaluated for visible signs of mold
- Mold feeds on cellulose and water, so it can be hidden from plain view
- Various technologies are used to detect mold and hidden water sources
- A range of containment procedures are used to prevent the spread of mold
- We use advanced containment procedures like negative air chambers to isolate the contaminated area with physical barriers and negative air pressure to keep the mold spores from spreading throughout the cleanup process
- Fans, heating and cooling systems are turned off to prevent the spread of mold during the remediation process
- Specialized filtration equipment captures microscopic mold spores out of the air
- Powerful “air scrubbers” and HEPA vacuums are utilized to prevent the spread of mold spores while the mold remediation is in process
Removing Mold and Mold-Infested Materials
- The mold remediation procedure depends on the quantity of mold growth and the types of surfaces on which the mold appears
- Antifungal and antimicrobial treatments are used to eliminate mold colonies and to assist in preventing new colonies from forming
- Removing and disposing of mold-infested porous materials, such as wood, drywall and/or carpeting, may be required to remediate heavy mold growth.
Cleaning Contents and Belongings
- We clean furniture, decorative items, curtains, clothing, and other restorable items affected by mold
- A variety of cleaning techniques are used to clean and sanitize personal belongings
- We remove odors and deodorization using fogging equipment
- The extent of mold damage will be assessed and a plan of action will be determined
