Mold Remediation and Restoration

Many of our technicians within our growing roster of professionals have their certification with the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) as Applied Microbial Remediation Technicians. We know how fast mold growth can spread through area homes and businesses, so we keep service vehicles stocked with effective mitigation tools, antimicrobial sprays, and cleaning products to begin recovery upon our arrival to a damaged property immediately.

We have sophisticated equipment that can help to address airborne contaminants in your home or office, starting with units like negative air scrubbers and hydroxyl generators. Both of these machines feature HEPA filters to reduce the presence of mold spores and other particulates in the environment while our SERVPRO team addresses the removal of colonies and the restoration of damage the organism causes.

From cultural centers like the Jane Addams Hull-House Museum to your home in Bucktown or West Garfield Park, mold is a situation that should get addressed immediately before it gets out of control. Our SERVPRO professionals have thee equipment and experience and to help.

Understanding Mold

Microscopic mold spores exist almost everywhere, outdoors and indoors, making it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. Some restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all mold, which is a fallacy. Consider the following mold 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.
