Excessive amounts of mold and certain types of mold may present health concerns. It is essential for the health of you and your family, as well as the protection of your property, to address the issue and arrange for professionals to conduct mold removal and mold remediation as soon as the presence of mold is identified.
Water damages can cause mold growth in your home or business, therefore it is important to have your water damage taken care of promptly and professionally.
Signs of the presence of excessive mold include:
- The presence of visible mold.
- Strong, musty odors.
- Any evidence of past moisture problems that might have caused undetected mold growth.
- Excessive humidity.
Due to the health risks associated with mold exposure, it is best to have mold remediation conducted as soon as possible. Though the type of reaction depends upon the mold present, according to both the EPA and CDC all molds have the potential to cause health issues such as:
- Breathing difficulties
- Persistent cough or cold symptoms
- Burning or irritation of the eyes, nose, throat or lungs
- Asthma attacks
- Hypersensitivity pneumonitis
- Skin irritation

- Opportunistic infections in immune-compromised individuals
What Faithful Cleaning and Restoration will do for you!
Mold remediation involves the cleanup and removal of mold by one of Faithful Restoration’s certified specialists to address the damage and health risks associated with mold. Cleaning with bleach and water will not kill mold. Moldy material must be removed and the damaged area reconstructed; therefore mold removal is best left to a professional trained to handle hazardous material and eliminate the spread of mold to other rooms. Expert mold remediation can include:
A Faithful Restoration certified contractor will come into your home to identify moldy areas as well as the source of the problem. He will then formulate a mold remediation plan.
The goal of containment is to limit the spread of mold throughout the building in order to minimize the exposure of remediators and building occupants to mold.
We use friendly and versatile HEPA air Scrubbers for handling indoor air quality needs on every restoration job. HEPA air filtration can address indoor air quality quickly and efficiently and help restore any environment to a pre-loss condition – the ultimate goal of every job Faithful Restoration does.
Building materials and personal belongings in your home can be affected. Since mold is a living organism and deeply ingrains itself into materials to survive, it is best to dispose of anything porous. The safest and most effective way to ensure mold doesn’t return is to remove affected materials. Faithful Restoration Technicians will take care for this process promptly and professionally to IICRC certified standards.
It is imperative that cleaned and repaired items remain thoroughly dry. Remember, excessive moisture is how the issue started. As a result, your Faithful Restoration mold remediation specialist will likely cover moisture management strategies to ensure your home doesn’t encounter future issues.
The reconstruction process will begin after all mold-contaminated materials are removed. Clean, mold-free materials will replace what was previously contaminated.
Following remediation, we search for any signs of recurrent water damage, moldy odors or visible mold to ensure the cleanup has been successful. Faithful Restoration recommends 3rd party mold testing of the indoor air quality by an industrial hygienist after all our mold remediation projects.
