Mold plays an important role in nature where it serves to break down organic matter. Though not always visible or easy to spot, however, it can silently wreak havoc on your property. Mold can grow anywhere indoors where there are wet or damp surfaces, including on ceilings, wallpaper, wood, drywall, and insulation material. It can begin growing on a wet surface within 48 hours and if left unchecked, can impede your quality of life and put the structure of your home at risk. ServiceMaster DSI in Tampa, FL., offers complete mold remediation and removal services to ensure the air inside your home will be healthy and safe.


Mold colonies can cause a variety of indoor air quality (IAQ) and health issues. Airborne spores are rapidly distributed throughout the building by means of the HVAC system. Plumbing leaks, flooding and fire suppression all contribute to the problem as the mold flourishes.

Once colonies are established, they begin to release spores and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Allergens generated by mold can cause severe reactions, including eye irritation, sneezing, sore throat and skin rash.


Mold begins to grow within 48 hours anytime it’s exposed to moisture. This can result from a broken pipe, a flood, a slow leak or even high humidity. Professional mold removal companies employ specific protocols designed to remove existing colonies and eliminate the chance of new growth.

  • Inspection Phase: Our technicians will inspect your home for visible signs of activity. If mold is found, we can help guide you through the reports for your insurance company.

    As long as the mold contamination area is limited to 10 square feet, we will proceed with a complete remediation effort. If we encounter an affected area of more than 10 square feet, we will contain the area, stop the normal mitigation process, and immediately notify your insurance company. If this is the case, we strongly recommend the use of an environmental testing service to establish baseline levels of mold.

  • Mold Containment: We use a variety of containment strategies to stop the spread of mold. This includes isolating and containing mold with physical barriers or other techniques. We use the latest technology to capture, filter, and scrub mold spores from the air. A special anti-microbial agent is used to protect your home from future growth.

  • Contents Cleaning: After removing and disposing of porous and compromised materials like carpeting and drywall, we’ll professionally clean your belongings, including furniture, decorative pieces, clothing and other restorable items. Our technicians use a variety of techniques and professional-grade products that clean thoroughly without affecting the material itself.
