Mold Remediation and Restoration

We Understand Mold in Chicago

It is impressive how fast mold growth can spread through homes and businesses in the Chicago area. Our technicians often discover mold when they arrive to perform regular cleaning services. That's the reason SERVPRO of West Loop / Bucktown / Greektown keeps our service vehicles stocked with mold fighting supplies, including antimicrobial sprays, and cleaning products. This allows our team to begin mold mitigation when we arrive at a damaged property.

Many of our technicians within our growing roster of cleaning professionals have their IICRC Applied Microbial Remediation Technician certification. 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. At the same time, 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, mold could be a problem. When mold is present, it's always a situation that should be addressed before it gets out of control. Our SERVPRO professionals have the equipment and experience to accomplish this.

Some restoration companies claim to be able to remove all mold. This isn't true, because removing mold from a structure is not possible because Microscopic mold spores exist everywhere, both indoors and outdoors.

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.
