Mold Remediation

Mold Damage

Mold is a part of nature that’s essential to our ecosystem. But while it’s welcome to do its job outside, it’s among the worst things you can deal with in your home. It can destroy your property and make you and your loved ones sick.

Once mold makes its first appearance, it can spread through your home in hours, so it’s essential to act quickly. But it’s important to note that mitigating it doesn’t mean forever eradicating it from your home.

That’s an unrealistic expectation because mold spreads through microscopic pores that make their way in through doors, windows, and HVAC systems. It can also cling to clothes, spread to furniture when you sit down, and continue growing wherever it lands.

As long as there is moisture in the air, mold can grow. That’s why it’s a good idea to maintain a 30% to 50% humidity range in your home or business to prevent those spores from growing


If you notice mold growing in your home, you should contact a professional mold removal service right away. Professional mold removers are trained to treat and get rid of moldy spots in your home or business.

While you’re waiting for help to arrive, you can take the following steps to prevent further growth:
  • Turn off your HVAC system
  • Turn off fans
  • Keep yourself, others, and animals away from the moldy area
  • Close off the moldy area if it’s self-contained (i.e., close the door)
  • Try to find and cut off the mold source
There are also some things you shouldn’t do once you’ve spotted mold:
  • Don’t touch the mold
  • Don’t use bleach or disinfectants on the mold
  • Don’t paint over the mold
  • Don’t try to dry the area

Cleaning and Restoration

While it’s tempting to try to get rid of mold as quickly as possible, you could end up making it worse or getting yourself sick from it. We don’t want that! That’s why it’s a good idea to let the professionals take care of it.

A mold expert’s job is to inspect the damage, contain the mold, filter the air, remove the mold, clean the area, and restore your home or business.

The inspection process includes finding hidden water sources that could attract more mold while filtering the air consists of removing mold spores from the air. Removing the mold includes antifungal and antimicrobial treatments that will remove mold colonies. Sometimes, mold removal will include removing carpeting, drywall, or insulation.

Once the mold is removed, the area must be sanitized. Every part of the structure where the mold was should be cleaned, floor to ceiling. Then, restoring the area includes replacing anything that couldn’t be cleaned. Have you spotted mold in your home or business? Call Utah Disaster Cleanup today.
