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 even the upscale neighborhoods along the Gold Coast, many of these residences fight a losing battle against groundwater conditions and their basement walls. With many of these lower levels being finished into additional living space or recreational areas, the development of conditions like mold could present health effects for those exposed. Initial inspections and environmental testing by our SERVPRO of Darien / New Canaan team can indicate the likelihood of mold colonization based on the present concentrations of spores and microbes. 

Mold Damage Repairs and Reconstruction 

Addressing the damage that mold can do in a structure is a considerable step to take towards making these losses "Like it never even happened." With a general contracting division of our team, we can offer a comprehensive solution to these concerns, complete with efficient remediation strategies, repairs, and reconstruction as required. Controlled demolition is often necessary for materials like drywall and other porous surfaces. It can provide a stable foundation for reconstruction and rebuilding of the property once the colonization has gotten addressed successfully. 

Several Remediation Strategies for Area Homes 

Remediation does not seek to remove all of the mold spores and naturally occurring microbes from an environment, as this is unnecessary. The threatening aspect of mold damage is active colonization and the spreading organism, which is the focal point of remediation approaches. Several strategies and techniques are utilized in the removal of active colonies, some of which include:  

  • Surface sanding 
  • Abrasive cleaning 
  • Media blasting 
  • Antimicrobial wipe cleaning 
  • Controlled demolition

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.
