Mold Remediation and Restoration

Local and state laws may require a specific inspection and documentation protocol based on the size of the affected area. We can advise you on this process, providing guidance based on your unique situation.

When we hear that one of our customers needs our help with mold remediation, we remind ourselves that a mold damage job is just a water damage that lasted a little bit too long.  Mold is a very opportunistic organism.  When it gets wet, it can begin its growth cycle in as little as 48 hours which means it can start producing allergens and irritants.  

At SERVPRO of Santa Barbara and SERVPRO of Santa Ynez/Goleta, we have helped hundreds of households and businesses in the area to professionally get rid of their mold issue. Our technicians have the experience and training to get the job done right the first time.  When it comes to the field of mold remediation, we consider ourselves to be experts and we welcome the opportunity to help you with any mold issues you come across. We area available 24/7 (805) 963-0606 or feel free to contact us by email office@SERVPROsantabarbara.com

Understanding Mold

Confusion and misunderstanding surround the topic of mold and mold remediation. Some restoration businesses even make claims to remove all mold from a building. This is a fallacy. Mold spores occur naturally almost everywhere, both indoors and outdoors. These microscopic spores float along in the air and can enter a home or business through windows and HVAC systems. Consider these 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.
