Mold Remediation and Restoration

SERVPRO do projects for properties that are being sold and the mold was discovered during a routine home inspection as a condition of sale.  When we do projects like these for the realtors, we must first do a scope and write an estimate for the project.  This includes sharing details with subcontractors to obtain their list of charges.  Then, once the estimate is written and eventually approved by the realtors, we must coordinate with the realtors and then coordinate schedules during the agreed upon time prior to or after the closing.  We also have to coordinate the different trades that are needed on projects like these so that schedules can match up to minimize the amount of down time.  To do a project like this in the warm months is a challenge.  However, in the winter time and the colder Wisconsin months, this becomes a bigger challenge because these properties can not be without heat.  In situations like that, then temporary heat needs to be installed.  This adds more cost and time to the project.  So what seems like a simple task is quite a challenge and it requires a bunch of coordination.  The cooperation we receive from our vendors and realtors is key to the success of projects like these.

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.
