Mold thrives in our south Texas climate, and what many homeowners may not realize is that mold infestations can be invisible to the naked eye. After experiencing water damage in the home, however minor, damp floors, drywall, furniture, insulation, and even structural framing, can be saturated, leading to the development of mold. While most of us have tackled mold in our bathroom showers with some simple over-the-counter cleansing products, home mold remediation requires specialized cleaning solutions, highly trained technicians, and the proper equipment.
To protect your home from mold, it is imperative that water damage to your home be corrected promptly, and properly. This process may include the removal of excess water, dehumidification and drying of the home, replacement of drywall and flooring, disinfecting, and other vital steps to ensure that your home is brought back to pre-water damaged condition. Many of the steps in home restoration after a flood, fire, or storm damages your property, depend on the type of water that has caused the damage. For instance, damage caused by sewage backups and flash floods require a heightened level of awareness and safety as these waters carry potentially hazardous chemicals, bacteria, and microbes.

Remediating mold that is lurking behind walls, in attics or basements, in furniture, or in floor coverings is more difficult and challenging than cleaning mold from your bathroom.
Our team’s first step is to complete a thorough inspection and assessment. We utilize the best equipment to locate and detect mold, and any hidden water leaks or sources that are causing the environment to be ripe for a mold infestation. Our second step is to contain the mold. The mold can cause serious health consequences, and must be handled with the utmost of care. Negative air chambers may be used to isolate contaminated areas of the home, to keep the mold spores from spreading. We can also deploy specialized filtration equipment that captures airborne mold spores to help prevent it from spreading further in the home. Then, we begin the mold removal using antimicrobial and antifungal treatments. Any drywall, carpeting, or other porous materials that are infested with mold may need to be removed and disposed of properly.
We understand that a mold infestation causes disruption to your daily life, and damage to personal items. We do our best to complete the mold remediation process as quickly as possible. In addition, we have the expertise necessary to identify belongings that can be safely cleansed, disinfected, and restored. Finally, after the mold removal is complete, the restoration process can begin. Often, this will include the installation of new carpet and drywall, painting, and other tasks to make a house back into a home.
