Mold Remediation / Removal
What is Mold Remediation?
Mold remediation, also referred to as mold removal, is the process of taking control of a mold outbreak and preventing it from occurring again. It’s impossible to eliminate mold entirely because of how ubiquitous mold spores are, so getting it under control is the goal. Simply cleaning the area with a store-bought solution is not effective. You may have eliminated the sight of mold, but the spores are very much still there and will continue to grow. Professional mold remediation services inspect, test, remove, sanitize, and restore, making it the most effective process for controlling mold growth.
The Cause of Mold Growth in Your Home
The cause of mold growth in your home is always linked to moisture. Mold spores surround us indoors and out. They only thrive when they have found a dark and moist environment. Often, extensive mold growth starts in places where leaks are common: underneath sinks, attics, basements, or inside a wall. These areas can experience leaks from nearby pipes or external sources. A lack of regular maintenance is a common cause of mold getting out of hand. As the mold grows, it will take root in nearby materials such as fabric, wood, or drywall.

Signs of Mold in Your Home
A mold problem is not always visible. Some outbreaks of mold may lay underneath building materials such as the carpet, inside a wall, or in your attic. These are areas you will rarely ever see, which is why they are common places for mold to get out of control. In order to determine if mold is growing in your home, look for the following signs:
- Increased allergy symptoms
- Musty or earthy odor
- Discoloration of materials
- Excess moisture in the home
- Water leak
- Peeling wallpaper
- Warped or bowing wood
Any of these signs in your home could mean mold is currently present or will soon begin to get out of control. Contact ASAP Restoration if you notice any of the above signs. Our team thoroughly inspects homes for any signs of mold. We’ll find the growth and remediate it as soon as possible.
