Mold Remediation and Restoration

Sometimes, the humid climate, fog and rainy season can provide the perfect conditions for mold spores to grow into full colonies. We have years of experience serving senior living facilities. When possible we do our best to make it possible for the seniors the stay within their homes.

One thing we explain to all our residents here at SERVPRO is that mold is not always a bad thing; you just don’t want it growing within your indoor environment. When mold growth is determined you have to act. In our experience, expensive mold testing is often unnecessary. If you notice a musty odor or the visible signs of mold growth contact SERVPRO of Belmont/San Carlos to begin the restoration process. Our IICRC certified AMRT applied microbial remediation technicians will provide a safe and successful conclusion to mold infestations.

Understanding Mold

Microscopic mold spores exist almost everywhere, outdoors and indoors, making it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. Some restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all mold, which is a fallacy. Consider the following mold 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.
