What Is Mold?

Mold is a natural part of the environment and can't be completely removed from your living space. It's everywhere - indoors and outdoors - and can enter your home through various means such as doors, windows, HVAC systems, or even on your pet or clothing. When these tiny spores encounter moisture, they thrive and can become a real problem in just a few days especially in a moist/warm environment. If you detect a musty odor, it's time to act. But before mold remediation can begin, we work to locate the source and treat it  to prevent its return. Keeping indoor humidity between 30%-50% helps control mold growth.

  • Identify the water source and take appropriate action to stop it and prevent further mold growth.

What Not To Do

  • Don't disturb or touch the mold.
  • Avoid blowing air across surfaces with visible or suspected mold growth.
  • Don't try to dry the area yourself.
  • Avoid spraying bleach or disinfectants on the mold.
  • Don't paint over it.

How We Approach Mold Remediation.

Emergency Contact

It all begins when you call CORE Restoration for help. Our specialists will ask you questions to determine the necessary equipment, resources, and personnel needed for your specific situation.

Inspection and Mold Damage Assessment

We'll carefully inspect your property for visible signs of mold and use advanced technologies to detect hidden water sources, ensuring that mold won't return after the cleanup and remediation process.

Mold Containment

Ventilation can cross-contaminate other areas. All fans and HVAC systems will be turned off while our professionals mitigate the mold problem.

Air Filtration

Our containment procedures are used to prevent mold from spreading. We deploy specialized filtration equipment to capture microscopic mold spores from the air. Our powerful "air scrubbers" and HEPA vacuums prevent mold spores' spread during the remediation process.

Removing Mold and Mold-Infested Materials

We use antifungal and antimicrobial treatments to treat mold colonies. In severe cases, we remove and dispose of mold-infested porous materials like carpeting, drywall, and insulation.

Professional Cleaning

Our professionals clean structural elements affected by mold, including flooring, framing, fixtures, HVAC, and mechanical systems. We also work on improving the indoor air quality (IAQ). Other items may require special attention after a mold infestation, such as curtains, décor, and important documents.

Repairs & Reconstruction

Depending on the mold's severity, we may need to remove drywall, subfloors, and other building materials. Restoration might involve minor repairs like painting and installing new carpet, or major repairs like reconstructing entire areas or rooms in your home.
