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.

Finding mold in your home or business can be a stressful thing to deal with. SERVPRO of Oakville/Mehlville is here to help if you need to have the mold removed, and cleaned. Our team has certified mold experts that can help from start to finish. If you believe you have some kind of microbial growth, contact our office at anytime. One of our team members will schedule a time to come on site and evaluate the situation. In many cases, there might need to be some kind of test to determine what type of microbial growth you are dealing with. After the determination, SERVPRO can help remove and remediate the mold and get your property back to pre loss condition. 

Mold is a Secondary Problem

Mold can't grow without constant moisture to feed it. In mold cases, we will see there is often a bigger problem such as a broken pipe or an issue with the roof that is letting rain water in. SERVPRO of Oakville & Mehlville is here to make sure we find the source of the problem, fix it and remediate the mold back to safer levels. 

Signs of mold in your home or business could be subtle:

  • A musty smell
  • Spotted clothing
  • Warped walls 

If you suspect mold, don't wait until you see it to call someone!

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.
