Mold grows in dark damp spaces. Whether mold damage is hiding behind a wall or visible on the walls of a home or business, it is a cause for concern. Mold can be extremely damaging to a home or business and its residents or staff. When mold is suspected, a business owner or homeowner should investigate immediately.
Mold can form 24-48 hours after a water damage event. It can also be due to the constant presence of moisture in an area. Mold feeds on the materials it lives on. This can result in cosmetic damage and damage to the structure of a home or business if left untreated. Hiring a mold removal service quickly to remove and prevent the spread of mold is best.
There are many signs mold may be present in a home or business. Some examples are musty or stale odors, furry or colored spots on the walls or ceiling, persistent moisture in an area, and personal health symptoms.

Mold Remediation Process
Locating and eliminating the source of the mold infestation it the most important step of mold removal. Mold will return if the underlying cause is not corrected. If the source is from an event such as a leaking toilet, once you fix the leak and complete mold remediation you prevent future infestation. Sometimes the cause is humidity-based and may require the use of a dehumidifier to help prevent the return of mold.
Mold remediation begins with applying an antimicrobial chemical to kill the mold and spores. Technicians proceed with mold removal by thoroughly washing and sanitizing nonporous surfaces. Our remediation team will advise on how to best deal with porous materials infested with mold. Some materials will not be salvageable and will have to be removed and replaced.
It is not enough to kill visible mold. Spores present in the air must be eliminated to prevent mold from spreading to other areas of the home. HEPA filtering rids the air of mold spores. Air conditioning systems are a breeding ground for mold. They can swiftly disperse mold throughout the structure. Because of this, SunCoast often recommends having the HVAC professionally cleaned.
Once all infested materials are cleaned or removed, SunCoast will begin reconstruction to return your home or business to pre-loss condition.
