Removal, Remediation, Restoration – Understanding Mold
Mold Spores and What to Expect
Because mold spores live everywhere – inside your home or office and outside as well - removing ALL mold from your property is virtually impossible. The truth is these troublesome spores are microscopic, floating along on the air, entering your home or business when you open doors and windows, through your heating and cooling systems, and even coming in on people and pets.
Mold in Your Home
When mold spores arrive in your home or business they seek out damp, moist spaces in which to thrive. Thus mold growth (spores growing into colonies) begins quickly, manifesting within only 48 hours. You’ll know when mold is there, because even if you don’t see it, you’ll smell the strong, musty odor it emits. These bothersome mold colonies can produce allergens and irritants which result in health concerns for those living in your home and those working in your company.
Mold Removal in Fontana CA
Complete mold removal is impossible, so when companies “guarantee” to remove all mold, their claims are false.
On the other hand, mold remediation is quite possible. Mold remediation is a process focused on reducing mold levels in your home or business back to natural levels. And while each mold problem is unique and will require a customized plan for your home or office, the steps to remediation are similar in all cases. Step one is contacting a trusted mold remediation specialist like SERVPRO. In step two, an inspection and assessment is performed. This is followed by steps three and four and includes mold containment and air filtration. Steps five and six feature removal of mold-infested material and mold, followed by the cleaning of all the property’s contents.
The process is completed in step seven, the restoration of your property. The restoration process includes repairing the mold damaged areas including, but not limited to, replacement of drywall, subflooring, carpeting, as well as painting, and any reconstruction needed depending on the severity of the damage caused by the mold.
