Mold Remediation and Restoration

Local and state laws may require a specific inspection and documentation protocol based on the size of the affected area. We can advise you on this process, providing guidance based on your unique situation.

It can be challenging to fully grasp all areas that mold and microbial threats might exist after a loss. For this reason, we have specially trained inspectors on our roster to identify the active colonization in the house and the damage that it has caused. These assessments determine the best possible remediation approach to remove these colonies and best protect any exposed elements before widespread demolition is necessary. Tracking moisture pockets can also be a good indication of where mold development might have occurred out of sight. 

Removing Moisture and Humidity from Livermore Workspaces 

Naturally occurring spores only become a threat to your home or business with a moist or damp environment. If these conditions do not exist, colonies cannot form. It is imperative when our technicians begin work on restoring and remediating active colonization that the moisture threats get resolved. With many headquarters for corporations like Pixar and Peet Coffee in the city, containment and moisture management are vital services to keep the office spaces up and running. A combination of equipment can help to manage these damp conditions, including: 

  • Centrifugal air movers
  • Positive pressure systems
  • Drying mats 
  • Trailered desiccant dehumidifiers

Effective Remediation Practices for Livermore 

The appropriate choice in mold removal varies on the conditions of the property and the severity of the organism's spread. While controlled demolition is a last resort, we have a general contractor license #937457 to provide this option along with sanding, soda blasting, and antimicrobial cleaning.

Understanding Mold

Confusion and misunderstanding surround the topic of mold and mold remediation. Some restoration businesses even make claims to remove all mold from a building. This is a fallacy. Mold spores occur naturally almost everywhere, both indoors and outdoors. These microscopic spores float along in the air and can enter a home or business through windows and HVAC systems. Consider these 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.
