Mold Remediation and Restoration

Mold, under the right conditions and with a little time can grow. What might seem like a small water leak can actually lead to a more serious mold problem. Mold is naturally occurring, it’s natures way of turning things back into the dirt; mold is a natural recycler. But in your home or in your business, it’s unhelpful and not welcome. When you find out that you have a mold problem it can be initially unsettling. Because mold has a seemingly good press agent and gets a lot of good coverage in the news, there is a lot of hysteria surrounding the subject. That coverage can be frightening. In a home or business, mold should be addressed properly, with the right tools and with the right training. Our Clay County SERVPRO has that training and can rightly address your mold problem. Throughout the greater Clay County area, including Kansas City, Smithville, and Claycomo, many homes and businesses have mold hidden beneath the surface. Our team receives regular training and continuing education to sharpen our skills. Let us help you.

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.
