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.

Mold is a fungus that can grow on just about any organic material, as long as there's moisture. Mold is not a problem outdoors; it plays an essential role in decomposing leaves and other plant matter. But when mold starts growing indoors, it can cause all sorts of issues.

Mold is more likely to grow in homes or buildings with water damage because moisture is necessary for mold growth. Mold can start growing within 24-48 hours of water damage, so it's essential to act fast if you think you have a water or mold problem.

Contacting the professionals at SERVPRO of Barrow County is the best action to take when your property has mold damage. Our team of certified mold remediation experts will come to your property and assess the situation, determine the extent of the mold growth, and develop a plan to safely and effectively remove it. We'll also work with you to help prevent future mold growth.

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.
