Memphis Mold removal & inspection

Expert mold remediation near you

Almost nothing can make your home feel less like a sanctuary than discovering mold. Unfortunately, mold spreads as soon as 24 hours after finding an adequate place to thrive. That means, by the time you’ve discovered it, it’s had time to make itself at home in your space. To keep the damage from worsening, allow ServiceMaster by Cornerstone to help with mold remediation and damage restoration services in Memphis.

Because mold is naturally occurring, you already have low levels that aren’t harmful to you or your loved ones. It isn’t until humidity or bacteria create the perfect environment for mold to grow that you have a mold infestation on your hands.

How to Get Rid of Mold on Walls

Depending on how severe the mold growth is on the walls of your home, you might be able to get rid of it. Unfortunately, if your walls utilize porous materials such as bathroom tiles, then it is likely that they will need to be replaced. However, if it is made of non-porous materials such as plaster or sheetrock, and you noticed mold growth in its early stage, it is possible to remove the mold yourself.

Get rid of mold growth on non-porous surfaces in your home by doing the following:

  • Clean the surface with a solution made up of detergent and water. Use a sponge or brush to wipe away the mold. Let it dry completely.
  • Follow up with a solution of water and bleach -- mix ¾ cup of chlorine bleach to a gallon of warm water. While wearing rubber gloves, use a sponge or brush to apply the mixture to the mold stains on the wall. Let it sit for 5 minutes.
  • After the water-bleach mixture has sat for 5 minutes, scrub the wall, rinse it, and let it air dry.

If the mold growth is severe or you or your loved ones are allergic to mold or have a sensitive respiratory system, it is better to have a Memphis mold removal expert on your side. Reach out to our team ServiceMaster by Cornerstone to schedule an appointment today to get rid of mold on your walls.

Frequently Asked Questions about Mold

What are the most common causes of mold?

Keep a look out in your home for the following top causes of mold:

  • Water - moisture that occurs from rain, leaks, spills or other source are breeding grounds for mold growth
  • Poor ventilation - because mold grows best in damp areas with little ventilation, areas with poor air flow are favorable for mold
  • Humidity - an air humidity level of 55% or higher can contribute to mold growth

What are some of the warning signs of mold growth?

  • Brown or black spots on the ceiling, walls and/or floors
  • Condensation forming on surfaces in the home, indicative of high moisture levels in the home
  • Musty or mildew odor that doesn't go away

What is the difference between mold removal and mold remediation?

Mold removal is the act of cleaning surfaces affected by mold or cutting away/throwing out material that has been significantly impacted by mold.

Mold remediation is an umbrella term for the entire mold restoration process - from mold testing to containment, clean-up and prevention services.
