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 growth can cause pressing concerns for structural elements in your home or business, as well as potentially cause health effects to those exposed to the active colonization. It is important to work quickly to address this situation, as the organism can spread rapidly and get out of control. The remediation specialists of our La Porte County team have extensive training through the IICRC and continued educational opportunities to ensure efficient and effective remediation and restoration of your damaged property.

The professionals of this division of our recovery team are actively learning more about modern approaches and the latest technology in the battle against mold growth. Our team here is led by one of our most experienced professionals, bringing more than two decades of experience to our efforts, and helping the actions of the remediation team to be purposeful and efficient in every phase.

Whether you want a routine inspection done on your home for possible mold growth, or you need fast removal services for a bustling business in the Lighthouse Outlet Mall, our rapid response team can help.

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.
