Mold Remediation and Restoration

Mold in your house may seem scary, but SERVPRO is Here to Help.

As a professional mold remediation company, SERVPRO of Meriden can safely and properly remediate mold in your home or business. Many mold "removal" companies are incorrect in saying they are able to "remove" all mold from your property - and that's because it's everywhere! Mold grows and becomes an issue only after being exposed to moisture. That's why mold loves to grow in damp, dark places, like basements, under sinks, behind refrigerators, in stacks of wet or damp papers & clothes, under wet carpets, and more.

Signs of Mold

If you know the signs of mold, it’s easier to get it taken care of before it spreads and gets worse. 

  1. Strong, musty odors in areas of your home may indicate mold.
  2. Water damage or water leaks. If there's water stains, discoloration on walls, or bubbling & cracking paint, you may have water damage in your home. This creates the perfect, moist environment for mold to grow.
  3. Past flooding or storm damage
  4. Persistent allergies. If you feel that you are having health effects that could be an allergic reaction to mold but have no visible mold or other allergens in your home, consider having mold testing done.
  5. Visible mold. There are many types of mold that are different colors, sizes, and may grow in different ways.

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.
