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 is an underrated threat to homes and businesses throughout the Minneapolis area. When moist conditions exist in a house, colonies can form in as little as a few days. Our remediation professionals respond fast to active colonization to help however you need.  

Emergency Services, Mold Inspections, and Content Removal   

Multiple immediate practices can shape the time and money spent on remediation to follow. Emergency services can include tarping and board-up, which can be vital after storm and flood damage. Mold inspections by our competent professionals show where damaged materials and ruined contents are in the house to create a custom remediation approach.   

Mold Remediation That Protects Damaged Property  

Remediation is not universal, so there are several approaches possible for almost every loss event. Microbial growth can be overcome with several options depending on the affected materials and the severity of the situation. Mold removal can start with surface treatments with antimicrobial products but often require more aggressive measures when handling:  

  • Attic mold  
  • Basement mold cleanup 
  • Bathroom mold growth 
  • Crawlspace mold damage  
  • Black mold  

Can Odors Get Removed After Basement Mold Remediation? 

One of the challenging hurdles for remediation professionals working in damaged homes after mold exposure is the smell. Musty odors are generated with volatile organic compounds so that these effects can overwhelm damaged spaces like basements, cellars, and attics. We use counteractant products and deodorization tools to manage these conditions quickly.

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.
