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.

With a growing crew of accredited Applied Microbial Remediation Technicians (AMRT) from the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC), our approach to mold damage and the restoration of your property is swift and deliberate. We have containment equipment that can help us to lower the volume of active mold spores in the environment such as our advanced HEPA filters, air scrubbers, and hydroxyl generators that can keep the damaging effects and spread of the organism contained to protect your property from unnecessary degradation.

With the potential health effects that exist from exposure to active colonization, it is imperative to get removal strategies started right away. In many cases, our SERVPRO of Columbia County professionals can spray affected surfaces with a green-friendly antimicrobial solvent that can kill mold and fungal growth on contact. This is a non-invasive approach that is more ideal than other more penetrative options like media blasting and sanding of materials hosting a mold colony.

We understand how quickly mold damage can get out of control in Columbia County properties from massive structures like the Augusta Regional Airport to homes and small shops throughout our region. Our SERVPRO professionals can make this disaster “Like it never even happened.”

Understanding Mold

Some restoration companies advertise “mold removal” and may even guarantee to remove all mold. This is a fallacy because removing all mold from a house or business is impossible; microscopic mold spores exist almost everywhere, both indoors and outdoors. Here are the 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.
