Mold Remediation and Restoration

It only takes a small water leak, or even excess humidity, for mold to form in your Chattanooga home or business and we understand the panic that ensues when you find mold in a place where you spend most of your time. When your home suffers a water damage event, mold and mildew can grow on the back of paneling, wallpaper and drywall, carpet padding, carpets and ceiling tiles. Certain types of mold spread quickly, as little as 48 hours, and can be a serious health risk and require immediate attention. Because mold can produce allergens and irritants, you will want a professional that has training and experience to properly resolve the mold infestation. Call us for your residential mold remediation or commercial mold restoration needs immediately. If you suspect that your Chattanooga area home or business has a mold problem, SERVPRO of Chattanooga can inspect, assess, repair and remediate your property.

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.
