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.

Professional Identification of Mold Growth in Palm Harbor Homes 

With the region's subtropical climate, humid conditions are not easily avoided for most of the Palm Harbor area structures. Without adequate air circulation and ventilation, this moisture content in the environment can develop into physical mold colonies on sensitive organic matter present on the property. Identifying active colonization might not be as easy as you might think and often requires sophisticated techniques and testing to verify. With certified Applied Microbial Remediation Technicians (AMRT) on our roster, we have the experience to help you through nearly every phase of mold damage recovery. 

Removing Moisture and Humidity from Workspaces 

Successful mold remediation begins with controlling the conditions in the damaged areas such as airflow, temperature, and humidity. Regulating these principles can allow remediators to remove the food source and eliminate the spreading of active mold spores throughout the space. Reducing moisture content often falls to a combination of dehumidification equipment, including desiccants and low-grain refrigerant models. 

Effective Remediation Practices 

Removing active mold colonies is the primary focus of remediation, several methods are ideal to accomplish this. Depending on the affected materials and the severity of the exposure, multiple tactics can be used to remove colonies. While much can be done with surface cleaning and antimicrobial products, severe degradation of the hosting material might require more direct strategies like controlled demolition. With in-house contractors ready and able to help in the early stages, demolition can happen quickly before worse damage occurs.

Understanding Mold

Some restoration companies advertise “mold removal” and may even guarantee to remove all mold. This is a fallacy because removing all mold from a house or business is impossible; microscopic mold spores exist almost everywhere, both indoors and outdoors. Here are the 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.
