Get Immediate Mold Attention

Mold is a serious issue that needs immediate attention, but don’t worry — our skilled mold remediation services will work with you to provide an affordable and highly effective mold and mildew cleanup.

Damage to property isn’t the only issue with mold — it can cause serious respiratory and health problems. This is due to the mycotoxins that are produced by the mold. While bleach alone will cause it to fade or change in color, it will NOT kill mold. It will still be present in the air, putting your family members at risk. Common symptoms of mold exposure include: headaches, sore throat, runny nose, coughing, sneezing, watery eyes, fatigue, itchy eyes, nose, or throat, and dry, scaly skin, nasal congestion.

Our Mold Remediation Services

The purpose of conducting a mold inspection test is to find out if your mold infestation is located in different parts of the home. We analyze our findings and determine the cause of the mold and provide you with detailed information on how we’re going to eliminate the mold infestation in your home/commercial property.

First of all, all the contaminated areas will be isolated from the rest of your property to prevent cross-contamination. DRC Restoration will use our specialized equipment and tools to decontaminate all the affected areas. We’ll conduct a thorough work that will not only get rid of all of the mod in your home, but will also prevent any future growth of it as well.


Common Types of Mold After a Flood

  1. Stachybotrys Chartarum (Black Mold): Stachybotrys Chartarum, commonly known as black mold, is notorious for its toxic effects on human health. It appears black or dark green and thrives on high-cellulose, low-nitrogen surfaces like drywall, carpet, or insulation. Exposure to black mold can lead to respiratory issues, fatigue, and headaches.

  2. Aspergillus: Aspergillus is a common mold found indoors. It can appear in various colors and is known for causing respiratory infections and allergic reactions. Aspergillus produces mycotoxins, which can be particularly harmful to individuals with weakened immune systems.

  3. Penicillium: Recognizable by its blue or green color, Penicillium spreads quickly and is often found on water-damaged materials like carpet, wallpaper, insulation, and mattresses. It can cause allergies and asthma in susceptible individuals.

  4. Cladosporium: This mold type can grow in cool areas and appears olive-green or brown. Cladosporium is often found on fabrics, wood, and floorboards. While not as dangerous as black mold, it can still cause respiratory and skin issues.

  5. Fusarium: Fusarium grows in cold, wet environments and appears pink, white, or red. It’s commonly found on carpet and other fabrics. Exposure to Fusarium can lead to skin infections and allergic reactions.

What is Primary and Secondary Mold?

Primary Mold

Secondary Mold

  • The initial mold scenario arises when mold takes root in organic matter, absorbing moisture from direct water events like floods or pipe leaks. This situation is often the predominant one observed in households during our mold extraction advisories.
  • Addressing initial mold scenarios typically encompasses setting up a containment field with HEPA filtration and control of negative air pressure.
  • The process frequently entails the elimination of impaired structural elements.
  • Such scenarios are typically identified in zones experiencing water penetration.
  • The provided image illustrates an initial mold scenario.
  • The principal mold scenario occurs when mold settles on organic substances, acquiring moisture directly from water sources. Conversely, a secondary mold scenario transpires when mold develops over prolonged durations with ambient humidity exceeding 55%.
  • Addressing secondary mold scenarios typically involves air purification, specific air treatments, and meticulous cleaning. While this might seem extensive, we will outline the requisite steps and associated costs during our mold elimination consultation.
  • Secondary mold is often discovered on objects that haven’t been directly exposed to water.
  • Remediation of secondary mold usually doesn’t necessitate the removal of structural components.
