Bloomingdale, IL Mold Damage Remediation

While the community is home to the Oasis Water Park, moisture and dampness in your home might lead to unfavorable circumstances and mold development. With many of the 22,000 residents having homes near recreational areas like the Meacham Grove Nature Reserve, environmental moisture and humidity concerns can persist. We can help homes and larger commercial structures like the Stratford Square Mall or the Windsor Estate Apartments with:

  • Attic mold
  • Basement mold remediation

  • Mold remediation
  • Black mold damage repairs
  • Mold inspections

Where is Mold Removal Needed in Bloomingdale Properties?

Mold inspections are a valuable tool in developing a tailored plan for mold removal and remediation in Bloomingdale homes and businesses. There is a sense of urgency for situations like bathroom mold removal and attic mold conditions, especially when these colonies begin to migrate to new areas of the household. We utilize several remediation strategies from sanding and soda blasting to controlled demolition to help.  

When Are Black Mold Damage Repairs Necessary for Bloomingdale Homes?

Because controlled demolition is often necessary to entirely eradicate active colonization through certain areas of your home, the need for repair and reconstruction is consistent as well. With a contractor license, we can conduct the demolition work required in mold removal and the build-back and reconstruction necessary to make mold damage incidents “Like it never even happened,” for area homes.

Understanding Mold

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 - (630) 830-6236

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 determine the scope of the mold damage by carefully inspecting your property for visible signs of mold. Since mold can be hidden, we use various technologies to detect mold and hidden water sources. 

Step 3: Mold Containment

To keep the mold spores from spreading further, we will use various mold containment procedures. Our professionals may use physical barriers and negative air pressure to isolate the contaminated area and to help prevent the mold spores from spreading through your Bloomingdale, IL home or business. Also, we’ll turn off the property’s fans and heating and cooling systems 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

We clean your furniture, decorative items, curtains, clothing, and other restorable items affected by mold, using a variety of cleaning techniques to clean and disinfect your belongings. We’re also trained to remove odors and provide deodorization using fogging equipment.

Step 7: Restoration

During the remediation process, it’s often necessary to remove porous building materials like subfloors, drywall, and carpet. The restoration step returns your Bloomingdale, IL home or business back to normal. Depending on the severity of mold damage, the restoration step may involve minor repairs, such as replacing drywall, or it may involve a substantial reconstruction project.
