We continuously train our technicians on how to best serve you when you experience mold damage. We use state of the art equipment and personal protective equipment to ensure everyone working and living in the property, and our technicians, are provided with the most effective and safe mold mitigation and cleanup process possible.
All Pro Services — when disaster strikes, we’re here for you.
Licensed & Insured Mold Remediation Experts
Mold mitigation and cleanup is a vital service to provide every community to keep it healthy. Mold is not only a potential threat to our health; it poses a threat to the structural integrity of the properties we live and work in as well.
We have all necessary licenses and we’re ensured to successfully mitigate and clean any mold growth you may experience in your property.
Free Mold Inspection
We offer free mold inspections. Our Project Managers and Mold Mitigation Technicians are trained to identify mold growing in a property, even when it’s not visibly present.
During your inspection, if mold is detected, we’ll also create a strategy designed to support you in eliminating all of it as effectively, safely and quickly as possible.
The Ideal Environment for Mold
Four elements are required to create an ideal environment for the growth of mold:
All molds need a source of food in the form of sugar to survive. The sugars and from cellulose, the main constituent of plant cell walls and organic fibers like paper, wood and cotton are a perfect source of food for mold.
Molds can also grow on non-cellulose materials like plastic, metal or concrete, provided there’s a food source, like a layer of organic dirt on the surface of the material.
Simply put, our homes and offices provide ample food sources for mold to grow and spread.
Different types of mold have minimum, optimum and maximum temperature ranges for growth.
Molds that grow in Utah thrive in temperatures between 60° and 85° Fahrenheit, well within the moderate temperature range of our properties.
Molds are obligate aerobes which means, like us, they need oxygen to survive. However, mold grows even when very low concentrations of oxygen is present, which makes it difficult to eliminate mold by limiting oxygen.
The final element required to create an ideal environment for mold is moisture. That’s why it’s important to keep our properties as dry as possible.
Water leaks, flooding, high humidity and condensation all provide moisture mold can use to grow and spread throughout properties.
Because of their ability to retain and store large amounts of water, it’s especially important to keep walls and carpets dry. For this reason, it’s also equally important to dry or remove them as quickly as possible once they become saturated with water from a flood.
The easiest and most effective element to manage or remove to prevent or stop mold from growing in a property is moisture.
Because of how fast mold can begin to colonize when all four necessary elements are present, it’s important to mitigate and cleanup water disasters as quickly as possible.
How Much Time Does Mold Need to Grow?
Under ideal conditions it takes 24 to 48 hours for mold to germinate and grow. Typically, the spores begin to colonize in 3 to 12 days, and it becomes visible in about 15-21 days.
Hyphae (roots) start to grow into the food source as soon as the growth cycle begins. Mycotoxins (poisonous gasses) are released as the mold spreads. All of this begins to occur before you see visible signs of mold.
Can I Use Bleach to Kill Mold?
Using bleach to kill mold can make the situation worse.
When bleach is used on porous surfaces like drywall or wood, mold will recognize bleach as a threat and as a result its membranes will move deeper into the surface to avoid the chemical.
In other words, using bleach to treat mold can potentially cause the mold to grow back even stronger than it was before.
Our 8 Step Mold Damage Mitigation, Cleanup & Restoration Process
If mold is visible, testing is not required. If it is suspected but not visible, we confirm the presence of mold in your property through third-party laboratory testing.
Some homeowners may request baseline testing, before and after mitigation, to confirm and document the success of the mold mitigation process.
Containment chambers are created to prevent spores from spreading from the affected areas of your property into the unaffected areas.
Negative airflow may be established in the containment chamber to safely pull airborne mold spores out of the property.
If the environment is still wet, we must cut off the source of moisture and thoroughly dry the area or mold will continue to colonize.
When mold is present, using industrial grade air movers to dry your property can spread spores into clean, unaffected areas, potentially causing the spread of mold throughout your property.
In these cases, we use only a professional grade dehumidifier to dry your property. It will take more time to dry it, but it’ll do so without spreading unwanted spores throughout your property.
Infected porous materials like ceiling tiles, insulation, drywall, paper and fabrics are unsalvageable and cannot be cleaned and are safely removed from your property.
A HEPA vacuum is used in the contaminated area to further remove airborne spores while we work on removing the mold from your property.
Solid materials like wood and concrete are cleaned with a HEPA vacuum, abrasive sanding and hand cleaning. We also use antimicrobial and biocide agents to kill mold on salvageable materials.
Materials that are removed are double bagged, sealed, labeled and disposed of in a proper receptacle.
We specialize in restoring properties back to their original condition. Our restoration team takes pride in making it look like the disaster never happened.
You can count on our Mold Mitigation Technicians to follow industry established safety protocols and best practices to effectively and safely rid your property of mold.
