Mold Remediation and Restoration

With the coastal communities we serve, including the whole of Charleston, and places like Kiawah and James Islands, high humidity levels are inescapable. As much as modern construction works to allow ventilation and airflow, it is not hard for organic materials like wood and drywall to succumb to the concentration of mold spores present in this damp environment. Seating and thriving into host materials and spreading to new areas is a continual process with the remediation of mold threats. 

We have IICRC-Certified Applied Microbial Remediation Technicians (AMRT) who are capable of handling the often-hazardous presence of mold colonies. With our advanced tools, we can address not only the removal of mold colonies, but also air quality threats, air duct cleaning, deodorization, and even full-scale reconstruction as needed. 

Mold growth can be a risk to both your Charlestown area home and its occupants, so waste no time in reaching out to our experienced SERVPRO team to handle it.

Understanding Mold

Some restoration companies advertise “mold removal” and may even guarantee to remove all mold. This is a fallacy because removing all mold from a house or business is impossible; microscopic mold spores exist almost everywhere, both indoors and outdoors. Here are the facts:

  • Mold is present almost everywhere, indoors and outdoors.
  • Mold spores are microscopic and float along in the air and may enter your home through windows, doors, or AC/heating systems or even hitch a ride indoors on your clothing or a pet.
  • Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens and irritants.
  • Before mold remediation can begin, any sources of water or moisture must be addressed. Otherwise, the mold may return.
  • Mold often produces a strong, musty odor and can lead you to possible mold problem areas.
  • Even higher-than-normal indoor humidity can support mold growth. Keep indoor humidity below 45 percent.
