What is mold?

Mold is a microscopic organism, a type of fungus that grows when conditions are optimal, such as when moisture and food are present. Mold is often associated with humid, musty, damp conditions that allow it to grow and multiply by releasing spores. Water leaks from flooding, leaky roofs and burst pipes are optimal moisture sources for mold to grow. Condensation present in your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems is another trigger for mold growth. Bathrooms, kitchens, laundry rooms, attics, and basements are prime mold growth locations, but mold is not necessarily confined to them alone. The food mold requires for its growth is present in any home and includes drywall, insulation, wallpaper, wall paints, carpet, sheetrock, and wood, among others. Mold is an allergen and an irritant and as such can cause different symptoms in susceptible individuals, such as eye irritation, nasal congestion, fatigue, skin rash, cough, or difficulty breathing.

How can I detect mold in my home?

If you notice musty odor or see visible black or white specks along damp or moist walls or surfaces, you may have mold. Some mold may be invisible behind walls, but can still be active and cause house mold damage as well as health problems. Moreover, even dry or dead mold can release toxins and cause health issues. If you had previous water damage issues from leaks and floods, you may not be aware that mold may be growing in your house. Any home components or furnishings damaged by previous leaks or plumbing accidents could be growing mold. Please call K.W. Construction and Restoration, the mold remediation professionals, to come to your home or place of business in any situation where mold is suspected.

How does K.W. Restoration work to clean up mold?

Our mold remediation technicians follow our methodical and well planned mold abatement process to take care of mold clean up and repair to your satisfaction. There are certain steps we follow that ensure we get your mold clean up job done right.

Examine mold damage

We use the most accurate and up-to-date moisture meter equipment to measure moisture in your wood floors, walls, ceilings, and cabinets. We then use infrared cameras to identify the origin and the extent of the damage.

Extract, remove, and dry water immediately

Our mold removal professionals use commercial grade dehumidifiers as well as other water removal and extraction equipment to dry out your floors, carpets, cabinets, and walls to contain damage and abate mold spread and growth.

Secure affected area

To prevent mold spores from spreading to other parts of the house, the contaminated area is sealed off using plastic sheeting. We then create negative air pressure to direct the mold away from indoor space.

Dispose of affected components and materials

Some materials will need to be disposed off, such as ceiling tiles, insulation, wallboards, carpet, soft furnishings, clothes, papers, and books. Non-porous metals, glass and hard plastics may be cleaned and reused. Depending on the degree of mold damage, semi porous wood may be cleaned up by drying, sanding, and treating with anti microbial solvent before reusing.

Heating, ventilation and air condition system treatment

Your heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and crawl spaces will be dried, cleaned, and then treated with HEPA filtration to remove remaining mold particles.

Whole house mold disinfection

We use negative ions, which are electrically-charged particles that remove airborne contaminates, to disinfect your home from mold spores.
