Mold Remediation

Discovering mold growing in your home is something every property owner fears. Mold spores are always present indoors and out, so mold growth is very common when the right conditions are met: the environment must be damp, at a reasonable temperature, and have an available food source.

When you find mold in your home, you should call a professional right away for an assessment and mold remediation plan. Let the mold removal experts at Berks · Fire · Water Restorations, Inc.℠ evaluate the scope of the problem and safely remove it – reducing the chance that it will return.

What is Mold Remediation?

Mold remediation is the process of removing mold from your property. In addition to cleaning, it involves containment of the affected area(s) and removal of both viable and nonviable mold.

Successful mold remediation also includes mitigating the conditions that allowed the mold to grow and spread. In our homes, mold growth occurs in areas where there is high humidity, such as where water damage has occurred or in areas where condensation builds up. Those areas need to be dried properly and remain dry to prevent the mold from returning.

We are fully staffed with IICRC AMRT Mold Remediation Technicians and follow the IICRC S520 Standard of Care for Mold Remediation. Please contact Berks · Fire · Water Restorations, Inc.℠ 24 hours a day seven days a week with any questions or concerns about the mitigation process – we are here to help you.
