Raleigh, NC Mold Damage Remediation
Mold can be an overwhelming opponent for responding SERVPRO technicians. We have effective restoration solutions for homes as well as larger commercial properties like PNC Arena or the capitol building.
Can Mold Inspections Help Improve Remediation Efficiency?
Initial mold inspections can help to distinguish the full scope of the damage and all affected materials. Targeting the hosting elements can be critical in reducing the spread of active spores and overcoming mold damage throughout the property.
The Best Mold Removal Choices for Raleigh Properties
Often, our professionals look to utilize surface cleaning solutions to eliminate mold damage throughout the house. As a preferred method, this is one of the least invasive approaches. In many situations, more aggressive techniques are necessary. We determine the best remediation solution based on the severity of the colonies and the placement of mold organisms. Some of our options include:
- Controlled demolition
- Abrasive cleaning
- Mold removal products
- Antimicrobial cleaning
When Are Mold Damage Repairs Needed in Raleigh Homes?
Recovering a home after mold damage often means a need for reconstruction and build back. As challenging as structural damage can be, prolonged exposure to deteriorating mold colonies leaves the property in a position to require we replace affected materials rather than attempt to restore them. With a general contractor license, we can complete these tasks without the need for additional contractors.

Microscopic mold spores exist almost everywhere, outdoors and indoors, making it impossible to remove all mold from a home or business. Some restoration businesses advertise “mold removal” and even guarantee to remove all mold, which is a fallacy. Consider the following mold 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 on a pet.
- Mold spores thrive on moisture. Mold spores can quickly grow into colonies when exposed to water. These colonies may produce allergens, irritants, and toxins.
- 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.

The Mold Remediation Process
Every mold damage scenario is different and requires a unique solution, but the general mold remediation process stays the same. The steps listed below illustrate our “typical” process:
Step 1: Emergency Contact - (919) 790-1222
The mold cleanup and restoration process begins when you call us. Our representative will ask a series of questions to help us determine the necessary equipment, resources, and personnel.
Step 2: Inspection and Mold Damage Assessment
We carefully inspect your property for visible signs of mold. Mold feeds on cellulose and water and can be hidden from plain view. We use various technologies to detect mold and hidden water sources.
Step 3: Mold Containment
Our professionals use various containment procedures to prevent the spread of mold. We may use advanced containment procedures like negative air chambers to isolate the contaminated area with physical barriers and negative air pressure to keep the mold spores from spreading during the cleanup process. All fans and heating and cooling systems will be turned off to prevent the spread of mold.
Step 4: Air Filtration
We use powerful air scrubbers, HEPA vacuums, and other filtration equipment to remove microscopic mold spores out of the air. This air filtration process and our mold containment process help to prevent the spread of these mold spores while the mold remediation is in process.
Step 5: Removing Mold and Mold-Infested Materials
Depending on the amount of mold growth and the types of surfaces involved, the mold remediation process can vary significantly. In general, we’ll use antifungal and antimicrobial treatments to eliminate mold colonies and to help prevent new colonies from forming. Depending on the severity of the infestation, we may need to remove drywall, carpeting, and other porous materials.
Step 6: Cleaning Contents and Sanitizing
SERVPRO of North Raleigh & Wake Forest will use a variety of cleaning techniques and products to clean your furnishings and personal belongings. Since mold infestations also cause a persistent musty odor, our professionals are also trained to remove odors and provide deodorization using fogging equipment.
Step 7: Restoration
Depending on the level of mold damage, drywall, subfloors, and other building materials may have been removed. Restoration may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall, painting, and installing new carpet; or it may entail major repairs such as the reconstruction of various areas or rooms in a home or business. The restoration step gets your home or business back to normal.
