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.

How Common is Mold for Palmdale Homes? 

Mold is surprisingly more common than many Palmdale homeowners might initially believe. With the higher humidity through the bulk of the year combined with many devastating storm systems that can result in flooding and structural damage, meeting the conditions for microbial growth is not a considerable challenge. When mold is discovered in the property, it is critical to act quickly to prevent the situation from worsening when the colonies continue to spread and migrate away from the origin point.

Where is Mold Growing in the House? 

You might believe that mold exists, but you do not have an idea about the extent of this damage or threat. Even with surface colonies, higher volumes of fungal growth and microbial threats can exist in areas that are less trafficked or impossible to see without some degree of controlled demolition. Our SERVPRO team can help by utilizing advanced technologies to identify moisture pockets and probable growth areas using tools such as: 

- Moisture Meters

- Hygrometers

- Thermal Imagery (Infrared)

How Does Remediation Work? 

Remediation seeks to remove active colonization but does not happen with bold claims to remove all mold spores within the structure. We focus on the efforts to remove active organisms through several potential applications. Sanding and soda blasting can often protect the underlying material when surface mold exists. Controlled demolition can remove compromised construction materials when there is no other restorative solution, and our contractors can repair and replace these materials after mitigation.

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.
