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.

With many of the homes in Warren County having basements and undeveloped attic space, there are multiple locations and opportunities for mold to develop without immediate notice. Moisture concerns might go unchallenged in lower levels of a home when the traffic in this basement is unchallenged. Remediation specialists and general contractors of our SERVPRO team work together to remove active organisms spreading in a property and repair the damage this colonization caused. 

Effective Remediation Approaches for Warren County

Active colonization is the primary threat that mold can cause to your property and its occupants. Exposure of organic matter can help the spread of mold spores and the subsequent colonies. Remediation involves multiple steps and stages to protect and restore several types of materials, contents, and surfaces exposed to spreading colonies. Depending on the access to these damaged areas and the severity of the colonization impacting the element, there are several techniques our remediators can use to prevent further spread and begin eliminating current threats. Some of these approaches include: 

  • Surface sanding
  • Abrasive soda blasting / Media blasting 
  • Antimicrobial surface cleaning 
  • Controlled demolition

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.
