Mold Remediation and Restoration

Don't use bleach for mold cleanup

This is a widely believed myth. We get so many customers inquiring about why the bleach treatment didn't work and their mold came back.

Bleach will change the color of your mold to a clear and/or white shade (just as it does to your clothing). Unfortunately, all you have done is to create an environment for the mold’s continued growth. You also may have possibly ingested bleach fumes and airborne mold spores (which is not a healthy thing to do).

Usually, within three to four months of bleaching, the mold will return and will do so with a vengeance.

How do you know the mold is gone?

For homeowners, the big challenge of DIY mold cleanup is not knowing if you’ve completely eradicated the mold. It is important to understand that if you haven’t eliminated the root of the moisture problem that led to mold growth, it’s inevitable that the mold will return.

It is simply not worth the risk; which is why we recommend that you call the professionals at SERVPRO of Pleasant/Dublin.

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.
