  1. What Is Mold Remediation?

Mold remediation is a service that first begins with the removal of the moisture source. If it’s not taken care of first, the mold colonies will regrow because its source was not removed. There may also be building material or a musty smell, so those issues also need to be addressed. Mold remediation will remove mold colonies and return the air quality to normal levels. While no expert can guarantee 100% removal, we use specialized mold remediation equipment to eliminate mold spores, which they are no longer any danger.

  1. A Mold Remediation Company Gave Me A Quote But Not The Cause?

This is not common as mold remediation experts must find the cause to prevent future mold spore growth. It won’t be necessary to identify which spore type it is as visual inspection and tests will confirm it. We also must eliminate the cause of the moisture, which is a standard process that Restore Pro goes through during our mold remediation.
