What Is Mold?

Mold, a type of fungal microorganism, can grow in almost any location. These tiny spores exist naturally in the environment and travel through the air, making their way into homes and buildings through openings, ventilation systems, and even hitching rides on people and their belongings. When mold growth becomes extensive, it often manifests as stains in colors like black, green, and brown.

The primary attraction for mold is excessive moisture. Areas of your property that remain damp or humid create ideal conditions for mold to flourish. Mold spores attach themselves to moist surfaces and thrive by consuming the proteins and nutrients present in materials such as drywall and wood.

What Makes Mold Dangerous?

Mold poses a significant danger to people due to the production of mycotoxins, volatile organic compounds (MVOC’s) mvoc’s that are specific to mold, VOC’s that are other organic vapors. Mycotoxins are toxic substances produced by certain species of mold, such as Stachybotrys chartarum (commonly known as black mold), which can have harmful effects on human health when inhaled.

Mold spores themselves act as allergens, triggering allergic reactions in sensitive individuals, such as sneezing, coughing, itching, and respiratory congestion. Furthermore, prolonged exposure to mold can worsen existing health conditions and increase the risk of developing asthma and other respiratory disorders, as well as heart, skin and neurological effects in some cases.

It’s important to hire Anderson Restoration, a Texas licensed Mold Remediation Contractor, (MRC) for mold remediation needs in your home.

Below are common areas where you will see mold in your home and property.

Signs of Mold On Your Property

While mold isn’t always visible, it can grow in hidden places like air ducts, walls and attics. However, there are signs you can look out for to detect mold. If you notice any of these signs, it’s important to call a mold removal professional promptly to contain and remove the mold.

Common signs of mold include:

Damage caused by mold

Mold growth can cause extensive damage to both property and health. Mold is particularly destructive because it feeds on cellulose, an organic material present in wood, drywall, and other common building materials.

Mold feeds on organic materials like wood and drywall, leading to structural deterioration over time. Additionally, mold spreads quickly, worsening the damage to larger areas of the property. It’s crucial to deal with mold promptly to protect both the property and the health of its occupants.

This is one of the reason why repairing and restoring these areas where mold is present is so important, as it not only affect your health but you’re property’s structural health as well.

Our Mold Removal Process

What is mold remediation?

Mold remediation is the process of identifying, containing, and removing mold from indoor environments. It involves assessing the extent of mold growth, addressing the underlying causes of moisture, containing the affected areas to prevent further contamination, and safely removing the mold-contaminated materials. Anderson’s goal for mold remediation is to restore indoor air quality and prevent health risks associated with mold exposure.

1. Full Inspection and Moisture Assessment

Mold remediation is the process of identifying, containing, and removing mold from indoor environments. It involves assessing the extent of mold growth, addressing the underlying causes of moisture, containing the affected areas to prevent further contamination, and safely removing the mold-contaminated materials. Anderson’s goal for mold remediation is to restore indoor air quality and prevent health risks associated with mold exposure.

2. Identify Source of Mold Growth

We don’t just provide surface-level mold removal—we aim to address the underlying issue. Every mold problem stems from water damage, which can result from various issues like burst pipes, faulty appliances, plumbing problems, or roof leaks. Our certified technicians will locate and repair the source of the water damage, then use high-quality HEPA vacuums and dehumidifiers to thoroughly dry the affected area.

3. Isolation & Containment

We isolate the affected areas and set up negative air pressure with a HEPA filter to prevent further contamination. Anderson Restoration follows industry-approved methods to safely eliminate all mold and contaminated surfaces. If furniture or personal items are affected, we may organize and move them for cleaning and decontamination elsewhere.

4. Mold Removal & Cleanup

Our technicians sanitize all remaining surfaces within the containment area after removing the affected porous materials.

We use wire brushes to thoroughly scrub surfaces and remove mold colonies. Then, we wipe down surfaces with disposable antimicrobial cloths and clean them using damp rags and detergent. Cleaning materials are disposed of similarly to porous materials.

In cases of extensive mold contamination, products, and surfaces may also undergo cleaning with a HEPA vacuum.

5. Restore & Rebuild

After the mold removal, decontamination, and cleaning processes are complete we are ready to restore your home to it’s pre-loss condition. Our restoration team will reconstruct the contaminated areas we extracted during the removal process like (walls, carpet, plywood in attics). We’ll reinstall your furniture, rebuild cabinets and other contaminated areas that were deconstructed for remediation purposes.

The coverage of mold remediation by insurance hinges on various factors, including the terms outlined in your policy and the root cause of the mold growth.

While certain insurance policies might include mold remediation coverage if it stems from a covered event, like water damage caused by a burst pipe, it's crucial to thoroughly examine your policy and engage in discussions with your insurance provider to grasp the nuances of your coverage. Each insurance policy differs, so gaining clarity on the specifics is essential for informed decision-making regarding mold remediation expenses.

Whether you can stay in your home during mold remediation depends on the extent of the mold contamination and the remediation methods being used. In some cases, it may be safe to remain in the home during remediation, especially if only a small area is affected and containment measures are in place to prevent mold spores from spreading.

However, if extensive mold growth or disruptive remediation methods are involved, it may be advisable to temporarily relocate until the remediation process is complete.
