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.

Identifying and remediating mold damage is a service that both residential and commercial properties need assistance with from SERVPRO of Jefferson County. We have both the training and equipment to clean up damage from the mold you can see, and also hidden colonies growing behind walls or in otherwise hard to see areas of a structure.

Professionals should handle the abatement of mold. Our technicians are trained to identify the source of the mold where it is a small plumbing leak, clogged or poor venting or vapor barriers behind walls are just a few of the many reasons mold can grow. We offer recommendations for avoiding mold growth in the future after remediation is complete.

If you suspect a mold problem, talk to one of our certified professionals, and we can neutralize the mold issue and associated odors. SERVPRO of Jefferson County uses both IICRC and EPA protocols to contain and remove mold. Our technicians measure and verify spore numbers are reduced to normal levels with the same sanitary standards required for medical facilities.

Understanding Mold

Confusion and misunderstanding surround the topic of mold and mold remediation. Some restoration businesses even make claims to remove all mold from a building. This is a fallacy. Mold spores occur naturally almost everywhere, both indoors and outdoors. These microscopic spores float along in the air and can enter a home or business through windows and HVAC systems. Consider these 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.
