Mold Remediation and Restoration

Our crew has remediated mold throughout Fairfield County and one thing that we have learned is that no structure is immune to a mold infestation. From new apartment buildings to shopping centers to historic old homes, mold can grow in any structure when the right conditions are met. If moisture is present, whether from a burst pipe, leaking washing machine or basement flooding, mold can grow. You may suspect that you have mold in your home because you notice some dark stains at the base of your cabinets, black spots on a windowsill or you have health symptoms that might be attributed to mold. Call our office to schedule an appointment with one of our technicians. They will come out and inspect your home and if professional remediation is deemed necessary, develop a mold remediation plan.

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.
