Mold does more than just look bad and stink. It eats into organic structures in your property like walls, floorboards, and rafters, causing structural damage. Without thorough mold remediation from IICRC-certified professionals, you'll never know if your property will be safe from escalating mold damage. ServiceMaster Restoration by First Response has the experience and specialized equipment to restore your home or business to health after you discover mold.

For the occupants of your home, mold also offers another danger – mold spores. As mold grows, it produces tiny airborne filaments that will carry throughout the building's environment. Those mold spores, once inhaled, can cause a wide range of severe health problems, especially for children, the elderly, and those with compromised immune systems. If the spores travel into your heating or A/C system, they can then infect the rest of the house.

Mold Removal vs Mold Remediation

Mold removal and mold remediation are two terms that are often used interchangeably, but there is an important distinction between the two. Mold removal focuses on the physical removal of mold from a surface or environment.

On the other hand, mold remediation is a more involved process that incorporates not only mold removal methods but also includes long-term preventative measures to ensure mold does not return.

These measures are designed to identify and fix sources of moisture that can lead to mold growth in the future. Mold remediation is a much more comprehensive approach than mold removal alone, as it seeks to solve the underlying problem, repair any damage, and address any potential conditions in which mold growth can occur.

You Have Questions & We Have Answers

  • How much is a mold inspection in California?

    The cost of a mold inspection in California can vary depending on several factors, such as the size of the property, the extent of the mold growth, and the location of the property. On average, the cost of a mold inspection in California can range from $300 to $800. However, some companies may charge more or less than this range.

    It's important to note that while the cost of a mold inspection may seem high, it's important to address mold growth as soon as possible to prevent further damage to your property and potential health risks. Additionally, some insurance policies may cover the cost of mold remediation or inspection, so it's worth checking with your insurance provider to see if you have coverage.
  • Does homeowners insurance cover mold remediation?

    Sometimes mold remediation is included if the cause of the mold was a “covered peril” like a burst hot water heater or water damage caused by firefighters extinguishing a fire in your house. 

    Gradual water damage - like from a leaking pipe or hose - will often cause mold growth, but your insurance coverage will usually not cover that by claiming that it was caused by poor maintenance or neglect. If your insurance company denies your claim, you should request an inspection from a mold remediation company who can help you document the source of the mold
  • How to get a free mold inspection?

    (1) Contact your local health department: Many health departments offer free mold inspections, especially if they suspect that there is a potential health hazard in the area. 

    (2) Check with your insurance company: Some insurance policies cover mold remediation and may offer free mold inspections to their policyholders.

    (3) Look for government assistance programs: Depending on your location and circumstances, there may be government programs that offer free mold inspections or assistance with mold remediation. 

    (4) Contact a mold remediation company: Some companies may offer free mold inspections as a way to gain new customers. However, be cautious of companies that may try to upsell unnecessary services.
  • Is mold remediation dangerous?

    Mold remediation is a highly important process and should be done carefully. Depending on the mold species and the location of mold growth in your home, mold remediation can be dangerous if not handled properly.

    Inhaling mold spores or coming into contact with mold can produce uncomfortable symptoms, such as allergic reactions, skin irritation, and increased sensitivity to mold.

    Our mold remediation specialists are trained to take necessary safety precautions to ensure that mold exposure is kept at an absolute minimum. Therefore, it is best to leave mold elimination and cleanup to the professionals rather than attempting DIY mold removal.
  • Does bleach kill mold?

    For the majority of surfaces in your home, bleach won’t actually get rid of your mold problem. It’s the “iceberg effect.” Visible mold is usually a small percentage of the actual amount of mold growth. Bleach can’t kill mold on porous surfaces like wood, and while tile or fiberglass surfaces can be cleaned with bleach, often the mold has spread far deeper. 

    The reason why mold remediation companies don’t recommend DIY cleanup isn’t because they want to make more money; they know, in their experience, that a mold problem is usually far more invasive than can be seen with the naked eye. Simply cleaning the surfaces can provide false assurances that you got rid of the mold, only to have it come back time and time again.
  • How do I know if the mold is gone for good?

    If the inspection/assessment process was able to pinpoint the source and cause of the mold growth, once that source is repaired, you can be relatively confident about the success of remediation. 
    Ask if your restoration technician has the IICRC certification for “Applied Microbial Remediation.” You can also request a “post remediation mold clearance” from a third-party mold inspector to re-test the area for any remaining traces of mold before the area is treated with a sealer to resist future mold growth.
