At this point we can give you a better idea about how long the process will take and what it will cost you.
STEP 3: Mold Containment
Depending on the severity of your situation we use a variety of techniques to prevent mold from further growth and spreading. Advanced containment practices such as negative air chambers isolate mold contaminated areas with enclosures and negative air pressure. Airflow is a quick way to spread mold. Therefore we shut down all fans, heating and cooling systems while mold remediation is in process.
STEP 4: Air Filtration
Our air filtration systems capture microscopic mold spores in the air. Utilizing dynamic air cleaners and HEPA vacuums our technicians clean the air so you can breathe easy again!
STEP 5: Removing Mold and Moldy Belongings
Mold remediation is relative to mold growth. Mold can infect an array of surfaces; from walls to furniture. The professionals at Urgent Restoration use procedures to eliminate fungus, bacteria and mold colonies. We also remove and dispose of all moldy materials, including drywall and carpeting.
STEP 6: Clean & Deodorize
Urgent Restoration cleans your furniture, decorative items, curtains, and other restorable items that are affected by mold. However, we donʼt stop at cleaning and sanitizing your belongings. We also eliminate odors by deodorizing them too.
STEP 7: Mold Damage Restoration
Contaminated drywall, flooring, and other structures are removed during the mold remediation process. Once we fully remove all contaminated materials we will sand all exposed framing, encapsulate and seal to prevent any future growth.

Mold and mildew are both fungi and are actually in the same fungi family. The difference is that mold spreads more easily and can cause potential hazards to you and your families’ health. Whereas mildew is harmless and can simply be wiped away, mold needs to be cleaned by a professional remediation service.
Yes, you can see mold! Mold affected areas will have dark gray, green, or black splotches on them. These areas will likely be raised and textured, unlike mildew, and is typically accompanied by a mildew-like odor. Mildew on the other hand, isn’t raised or textured – and when you wipe mildew away, it’s gone. This is not the case with mold.
Exposure to mold CAN cause health problems. For most people, mold creates symptoms similar to an allergic reaction. Symptoms such as a rash, itchy eyes, coughing, sneezing, a runny nose, and other similar symptoms. Long-term exposure to mold can cause additional or more severe health problems. This is why it is important to remediate the situation as soon as possible.
The length of time it takes to remove mold is dependent on how extensive the growth is. It can take anywhere from a few hours to several days.
