Mold Remediation Process

Mold is a fungus that can grow almost anywhere, indoors and outdoors. Mold spores are microscopic and can travel through the air, entering your home through windows, doors, AC/heating systems, or even on your clothing or pets.

Mold spores thrive on moisture, so it is important to keep indoor humidity below 45 percent. If mold growth is suspected, it is important to call a professional mold remediation company like SERVPRO™.

SERVPRO's mold remediation process typically includes the following steps:

  1. Emergency Service: Contact your local SERVPRO for emergency service.
  2. Inspection and Mold Damage Assessment: A SERVPRO professional will inspect your property to assess the extent of the mold damage and develop a remediation plan.
  3. Mold Containment: SERVPRO will use containment procedures to prevent the spread of mold spores during the remediation process. This may involve using physical barriers, such as plastic sheeting, to isolate the contaminated area.
  4. Air Filtration: SERVPRO will use air filtration systems to remove mold spores and other pollutants from the air.
  5. Removing Mold and Mold Infested Materials: SERVPRO will use a variety of methods to remove mold and mold-infested materials, depending on the type of mold and the surfaces it is growing on. This may involve using specialized cleaning products, equipment, and techniques.
  6. Cleaning Contents and Belongings: SERVPRO will clean and disinfect any contents and belongings that were exposed to mold.
  7. Restoration: Once the mold has been removed and the contaminated area has been cleaned and disinfected, SERVPRO will restore your property to its pre-mold condition.

SERVPRO's mold remediation professionals are trained and experienced in handling even the most complex mold problems. They will work with you to develop a remediation plan that meets your needs and budget.
