SERVPRO is an experienced professional mold remediation service that can effectively mitigate the risks associated with mold growth and mold infestations. Our trained and certified technicians utilize industry-leading techniques, products, and equipment to effectively identify, contain, and mold removal from both residential and commercial properties.

Why does mold grow?

Mold growth within a water-damaged structure is a serious problem that can lead to significant health risks and mold-infested materials. The presence of moisture, along with the right temperatures and food sources, provide ideal conditions for mold spores to thrive and spread throughout the structure.

To prevent further damage from occurring, it is essential to take immediate action in order to remediate any existing mold or mitigate potential future outbreaks. SERVPRO's experienced technicians have the knowledge, expertise, and equipment necessary to properly identify, contain and remove mold from both residential and commercial properties quickly and safely.

With their industry-leading techniques, products, and equipment they are able to effectively minimize the risk associated with mold growth while restoring your property back to its preloss condition.

Mold health effects:

Mold can pose serious health risks to humans and animals alike. Long-term exposure to moldy environments has been linked to a variety of respiratory illnesses, allergic reactions, skin irritations, and other more serious conditions.

It is therefore extremely important for any residential or commercial property with a mold infestation to have the affected materials removed in order to reduce the chances of adverse health effects on those exposed. SERVPRO offers reliable and effective solutions for mold remediation that can help protect you from the dangers posed by mold growth.

SERVPRO® and the Mold Remediation Process

SERVPRO's mold remediation process includes mold inspection and testing, containment, air filtration, removal of affected materials, cleaning of non-porous surfaces, and restoration.


Containment is an important part of the mold removal process and it involves setting up physical barriers to prevent the spread of mold spores. SERVPRO technicians are trained in proper containment protocols, which help keep impacted areas isolated from other parts of the property. This helps protect not just people but also furniture and other items within a home or business from contamination. Additionally, all materials removed during remediation will be contained and disposed of properly according to local, state, and federal regulations.

Air Filtration Devices:

As part of the SERVPRO mold remediation process, air filtration devices are used to capture and remove airborne mold spores. This helps to reduce the risk of cross-contamination by preventing the spread of airborne particles during the removal process. Air filtration systems also help to improve indoor air quality in affected areas after the completion of a project, reducing health risks associated with mold exposure.

AFD's also reduce exposure of inhaling mold spores. These AFD's utilize high-efficiency particulate air filters otherwise known as HEPA to filter spores from the air. The type and size of the system used are dependent on factors such as the level of contamination present and the degree of infestation.

Selective Demolition for Removal of Mold Spores:

Selective demolition is an important step in the mold remediation process. This involves removing contaminated materials that are unable to be cleaned or restored and disposing of them safely. SERVPRO technicians have the experience and knowledge needed to properly identify and remove affected materials, such as drywall, insulation, carpets and other porous items that may be harboring mold spores.

By selectively demolishing only those items which cannot be salvaged, SERVPRO can help contain the spread of contaminants while minimizing costs associated with replacement material. Additionally, all debris will be disposed of according to local regulations for safe disposal of hazardous waste materials.

Mold Disinfectant and Encapsulants:

In the SERVPRO mold remediation process, applying mold disinfectant and an encapsulant when needed is a critical step. Disinfectants are used to kill existing mold spores on surfaces, while encapsulants provide long-term protection against future mold growth. The type of product used depends on factors such as the level of contamination present and degree of mold infestation.

Air sampling:

Mold air sampling is an important step in the SERVPRO mold remediation process. This involves testing the air quality of affected areas to determine whether there are any airborne mold spores present and, if so, what type of mold they belong to. Air sampling can help identify sources of contamination and provide a baseline for comparison after remediation has been completed.

It also helps ensure that all hazardous materials have been removed from the environment prior to restoration work beginning. The type and size of air sampler used is dependent on factors such as level of contamination present and the degree of mold infestation. By conducting thorough air sampling before, during, and after a project, SERVPRO technicians are able to ensure that your home or business is safe from potential health risks associated with mold problems.

Prevent future mold growth

SERVPRO also offers additional services to help prevent future mold growth. These services include dehumidification, air quality evaluations, and more.

Their goal is to help ensure that your home or business is free from harmful mold spores and other contaminants that can cause illness or damage to the property.
