Mold 101

Mold is practically everywhere. In fact, microscopic mold spores all over your home but that doesn’t mean you have a mold problem. If a mold remediation company tells you that they can remove all mold from a home or business you should probably stop talking to them immediately. Take into consideration these facts about mold:

  • Mold is everywhere – outside and inside.
  • Tiny mold spores travel in the air and enter your home through windows, doors, and HVAC systems. It can even attach to your clothing or pet when they are outside.
  • Mold thrives on moisture. Spores rapidly multiply when exposed to water. 
  • Before any mold remediation can begin, all water and moisture sources must be eliminated. If not, the mold will return.
  • Mold stinks. It has a thick, musty odor. This odor can help you find problem areas.
  • High humidity supports mold growth. It is best to regulate indoor humidity below 45 percent.

Mold Remediation Basics

No mold problem is the same and each job requires a tailored solution. Be that as it may, the mold remediation process stays consistent.

Mold Remediation Process

Step 1: Contact Urgent Restoration

As soon as you call, our team determines the necessary equipment, resources, and personnel needed to get your mold cleanup and restoration started right away. 

Step 2: Inspection and Mold Damage Assessment

Urgent Restoration inspects your property for visible signs of mold. Although it is stealthy and often hides in dark places, we have the technology to detect mold and hidden water sources that aren’t in plain view.

Step 3: Mold Containment

Depending on the severity of your situation we use a variety of techniques to prevent mold from 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 don’t stop at cleaning and sanitizing your belongings. We also eliminate odors by deodorizing them too.

Step 7: Restore

Contaminated drywall, flooring, and other structures are removed during the mold remediation process. Our final step replaces these materials and structures. From new drywall, fresh paint, and flooring to major repairs such as reconstructing rooms and strengthening supports. We restore your property to better than new conditions.
